Vitamin C is used in the
body in several different ways. One of these ways is to make
collagen. Collagen is important for the bodybuilder and strength
training athlete as it supports joint health. Many different
exercises can take a toll on your joints, even if proper form, rest
and recovery, and stretching principles are strictly adhered to. By
supplementing with vitamin C, basic exercises such as barbell bench
presses, shoulder presses, deadlifts, and squats will be far less
taxing on your joints.
Vitamin C is also known to
reduce levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone feared by
bodybuilders because it is known to produce a catabolic effect in the body during training
sessions (usually those over one hour in length).

Recommended Intake for
500 - 1,000 mg with your
postworkout meal can offset the levels of cortisol produced during
drawn out and intense training.
