Vit. C contains bioavailable 𝘤𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘳 & an enzyme that stimulates the liver to produce something called ceruloplasmin.
(major copper-carrying protein in the blood, it plays a role in 𝘪𝘳𝘰𝘯 𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘮).
It helps activate enzymes essential to 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘨𝘦𝘯 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 & 𝘯𝘦𝘶𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘴𝘮𝘪𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴.
It's essential for 𝘈𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘏𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘴! and is a source of potassium.
Potassium = highest concentration in the cells when it comes to 𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘺𝘵𝘦𝘴.
Just like sodium, potassium levels are maintained by 𝘢𝘭𝘥𝘰𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘦 (steroid hormone whose main role is to 𝘳𝘦𝘨𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘴𝘢𝘭𝘵 & 𝘸𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺).
When too much salt or fluid is pulled from the cells it 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘥𝘦𝘩𝘺𝘥𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 & 𝘴𝘰𝘥𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵.
In order to keep the sodium/potassium ratio inside the cell constant, 𝘱𝘰𝘵𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘣𝘦𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘪𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘦𝘴 (to match the low levels of the sodium).
This creates even more 𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘺𝘵𝘦 𝘪𝘮𝘣𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦, leading to 𝘥𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘧𝘶𝘯𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.
The 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘥 we are the 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘴𝘰𝘥𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘸𝘦 𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘦 from the cell, which causes our cells to 𝘥𝘶𝘮𝘱 𝘱𝘰𝘵𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘶𝘮.
The balance of sodium & potassium affects the symptoms experienced by people with 𝘢𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘧𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘨𝘶𝘦.
Sodium supports many functions in the body & helps with 𝘔𝘢𝘨𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘢𝘣𝘴𝘰𝘳𝘱𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 & improving 𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘶𝘭𝘪𝘯 𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘺.
