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

  • Loaded With Sugar

    star

    Nice tablets that taste great. Too great to be true. So I looked on the label to see what sweeter was used. There was no mention of sweeteners. The nearest thing even hinting at a sweetener was the phrase '' orange flavoured tablets.'' So I rang Sandersons and they told me four different sweeteners are used. From what I can remember they are: Sorbitol, Sucrose and Stevia. I forget the last one. In my opinion these ingredients should be clearly labelled on the product. I find this very disappointing because it makes me question what ingredients are not being listed on other Sanderson products.

    HealthPost response - Thank you for contacting us through our product reviews section regarding the sugar content of this product, we have been waiting to receive this information from our supplier, this product information has now been updated. In this product there is 640mg sucrose/glucose/maltodextrin, 382mg of sorbitol/xylitol and 13mg of stevioside.

  • Sickly sweet

    star

    Can't understand why they had to change this product. We have been buying it for years and had I reviewed it previously I would have rated it as outstanding. Now I no longer wish to buy it. Just tastes so artificial and overly sweet.

  • Best vitamin C powder we've tried

    star

    This powder strikes the perfect balance between tasty and face-puckeringly tart. Much better taste than the Clinicians Super Family C product, which is far too stevia-sweet.
