Boost your immune system

For more and more peo­ple, a healthy and bal­anced diet means an impor­tant, active con­tri­bu­tion to health and enjoy­ment of life. This also includes strength­en­ing the immune sys­tem. To coun­ter­act a lack of vit­a­mins and min­er­als, many con­sumers take advan­tage of dietary sup­ple­ments, espe­cial­ly at the begin­ning of fall and winter.

Prob­a­bly one of the best known dietary sup­ple­ments is vit­a­min C. In food, vit­a­min C is found main­ly in fruits and veg­eta­bles. Cit­rus fruits such as oranges and lemons or even var­i­ous types of cab­bage con­tain a lot of vit­a­min C. Organ­ic ascor­bic acid is a col­or­less and odor­less, eas­i­ly water-sol­u­ble crys­talline sol­id with an acidic taste. Its salts are called ascor­bates. Due to its bio­log­i­cal activ­i­ty, L-(+)-ascorbic acid used in prepa­ra­tions for food sup­ple­ments. L-(+)-ascorbic acid and also its deriv­a­tives, hav­ing the same effect, are called vit­a­min C.

But it is not always pos­si­ble to cov­er the need for nutri­ents and vit­a­mins through food alone. Food sup­ple­ments there­fore remain a use­ful com­ple­ment for the sup­ply of essen­tial build­ing blocks.

Vit­a­min C con­tributes to a healthy diet and has an impor­tant pos­i­tive influ­ence on a vari­ety of bod­i­ly functions.

Among oth­ers, it con­tributes to:

a nor­mal func­tion of the immune system

a nor­mal col­la­gen for­ma­tion for a nor­mal func­tion of the blood vessels

a nor­mal col­la­gen for­ma­tion for a nor­mal func­tion of bones

a nor­mal col­la­gen for­ma­tion for a nor­mal func­tion of skin

a nor­mal ener­gy metabolism

a nor­mal func­tion of the ner­vous system

reduce fatigue and tiredness

All applic­a­ble health claims for vit­a­min C can be found in Com­mis­sion Reg­u­la­tion 432/2012.

From our port­fo­lio, we offer a range of dif­fer­ent raw mate­ri­als as vit­a­min C enrich­ment for use in dietary supplements:


These raw mate­ri­als are the salts of L-(+)-ascorbic acid, which are iden­ti­cal in their effect and per­fect­ly adapt­ed for use in food supplements.

The raw mate­ri­als can be declared as vit­a­min in the sup­ple­men­ta­tion. And they offer anoth­er advan­tage: They addi­tion­al­ly enrich your prod­ucts with the min­er­als cal­ci­um respec­tive­ly mag­ne­sium.

They are organ­ic min­er­al salts with high bioavail­abil­i­ty. Due to their low­er acid­i­ty, mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um ascor­bate are more gen­tle and bet­ter tol­er­at­ed by peo­ple with sen­si­tive stomach.

All infor­ma­tion on the health claims for mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um can be found here.
