Vitamin C Info

Vitamin C is probably best known for its role in preventing scurvy, the severe deficiency disease common on long distance sea voyages and among soldiers on war rations right through to the early 20th century.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for maintaining healthy body function. Our bodies need a regular renewable source of vitamin C because, unlike most animals, we humans can’t make it ourselves. It is a water soluble nutrient so not able to be absorbed into our fatty tissues. Therefore on a daily basis we need to obtain adequate amounts through our food intake, and when necessary from dietary supplements.

Vitamin C Benefits

Vitamin C has many important functions in key areas of the body. It is an antioxidant, controlling free radical damage to cells. It supports the immune system and maintains integrity of blood vessels and connective tissue. It is an essential nutrient for healthy adrenal gland function. It has anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory actions. Vitamin C performs so many direct and indirect actions in humans that a deficiency has extremely wide ranging implications.

Vitamin C Side Effects

Vitamin C is extremely safe. Your body adjusts its vitamin C absorption according to need. Any dietary excess is excreted via the kidneys and in large supplementary doses the unabsorbed excess is flushed out via the lower bowel in a moderate form of diarrhoea – a short term balancing mechanism. The ascorbic acid form of vitamin C may cause gastrointestinal discomfort, whereas an ascorbate form is generally well tolerated. In cases of pre-existing kidney disease or renal failure vitamin C intake needs to be managed carefully. Caution is advised in cases of hemochromatosis because vitamin C enhances iron absorption.

Product Reviews

  • Will be re-purchasing!

    star

    Such an easy and effective way to get in your Vit C. It tastes horrible and the formulation means it can get stuck to the back of your throat but I have learned my lesson and now take it in a little water mixed with a liquid hair skin and nails supplement I have which tastes like blood orange and it's fine.

    The individual sachets are convenient, although not that great for the environment in sure.

    Overall I would probably purchase again, and have even got one of my friends onto them.

    My son is a picky eater, very limited vege and fruit intake, has taken these for 3 years now at night before bed, dosn't get sick hardly ever and has a great immune system and excellent iron stores after a recent blood test, was suprise but i am sure it's from taking this superfood vitamin. Have now got my eldest son taking them as is always sick and run down, we see how that goes this winter. Can't recommend enough.

  • Excellent product

    star

    I have tried before many forms of Vitamin C for my family, but this appears to be the only one that can ward off a winter cold, provided it is taken at the first sign of cold symptoms. My family likes this product very much!
