Product overview

Vegetarian Suitable for Vegetarians

Vegan Suitable for Vegans

Gelatin free Gelatin Free

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin however the body does not store Vitamin C, so a regular daily intake is required. Each 500mg (625% RDA) tablet is made using a special process that ‘meshes’ the vitamin with a plant cellulose so that it breaks down gradually to release vitamin C. Zinc is also included as it contributes to the normal function of the immune system.

Because Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, it is not stored in the body for very long. This means that a regular intake is needed to keep the levels topped up. The benefits of Vitamin C are many and varied, they include; the support of the immune system, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and the normal function of the nervous system.

Key Benefits

  • Steady release of Vitamin C throughout the day
  • Made using a special process for slow release
  • With added zinc for immune system support

It has mostly kept the colds away.

Used this product for many years and found it really great for beefing up my immune system.
I have over the years been surrounded by people with bad colds, coughing and sneezing and managed to avoid catching anything off them.
I put it down to having a regular daily intake of Vitimin C !
