Oxidative stress is a state that occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body.
The body produces free radicals during normal metabolic processes, and cells very cleverly produce antioxidants to neutralise these free radicals.
However, due to our modern diet, lifestyle and other environmental factors, the body may not always be able to maintain a healthy balance.
The result, uncontrolled oxidative stress, can damage cells, proteins and DNA, which can contribute to ageing.
Antioxidants such as Vitamin C have a vital neutralising effect on free radicals. Vitamin C is, however, an essential nutrient which means it cannot be produced by the body and must be replenished regularly.
Gaia Sodium Ascorbate is a pure buffered soluble vitamin C powder. This means it is more abdomen friendly and usually recommended for people who may have gastrointestinal problems associated with ascorbic acid.
