DESCRIPTION

Please note: This is a temporary replacement formulation for Vitamin C Buffered capsules due to supply chain issues with one of the raw materials, Potassium ascorbate. Please see label information for full details of this change.

We have replaced this with another mineral ascorbate, Sodium Ascorbate. Sodium ascorbate (like potassium ascorbate) is gentler on the gastrointestinal system than ascorbic acid so this ingredient performs the same role in this product.  The product contains the same amount of Vitamin C as our original Vitamin C Buffered formulation.

Magnesium Ascorbate is also offered as an alternative buffered vitamin C.

Alternatively, we also produce Vitamin C Capsules and Vitamin C Powder.

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin with a wide range of important functions, including:

  • Its antioxidant activity
  • Contributing to the synthesis of collagen (important for bones, teeth and gums, blood vessels, cartilage and skin
  • Helping to maintain psychological health and the nervous system
  • Increasing the absorption of iron
  • Maintaining the immune system, including under the influence of intense exercise
  • Aiding the metabolism of energy, and the reduction of fatigue

    Zinc is important for:

  • The metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and vitamin A
  • Keeping the immune system working
  • Protein manufacture and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails
  • Muscle growth and reproductive health
  • DNA synthesis and cell division
  • Its antioxidant activity
  • Maintaining healthy bones
  • Supporting cognitive performance
  • Normal vision

    Magnesium is important for its role in:

  • Helping to maintain energy
  • Helping to build and maintain bones and teeth
  • Contributing to the health of nerve, muscle and cell membranes
  • Contributing to normal muscle function, including the heart
  • Assisting with protein manufacture
  • Balancing some of the body's other mineral and hormone systems

    This supplement provides 436% of the vitamin C NRV, but is well within recommended upper limits. Quantities above 1000mg in any one dose are increasingly less well absorbed. More than one capsule a day will exceed the recommended upper limit for total zinc consumption. If you have a sensitive stomach and require Vitamin C, this product may be more suitable for you. Mineral buffers are used to change the PH balance in ascorbic acid, making it less acidic. Zinc and Magnesium ascorbates are used based on the bodys ability to absorb them.
