Vitamin C Info

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. Our 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

  • Finally a non GMO Vit C!

    star

    I literally looked worldwide for a form of Vit C not derived from GMO corn, which I thought was impossible until I found this brilliant product. Being lypo-spheric I can take much larger doses without the usual stomach issues of everyday Vit C which is incredibly useful when warding off season bugs. Awesome product, highly recommend.

  • Great product

    star

    Nice to have a sugarless vitamin C which is NOT sweetened with aspartame (as some are). I contacted Nature's Own and they said it is sweetened with isomalt, which, according to my googling research doesn't raise blood sugar as fast as sucrose, (ie. it has a lower GI) and is not metabolised by bacteria and so does not contribute to tooth decay - two features I was after, so I am happy.

  • Go healthy allergy support

    star

    Very effective, me and my daughter are allergic to dust mites. We try not to take anything regularly, so whenever, we feel the sneezes, runny nose, with little scratching on the eyes or body coming through, we take these and feel the difference in a couple of hours.

    Love this product, I also send them to my brother, and he found that they work really well too!!!
