See what vitamin C can do for you
Keeping your vitamin C levels up is very important for your overall health. These vitamin C tablets contain all the vitamin C you need to meet your daily requirement, with added wild rose hips – a natural plant-based source of vitamin C.
What is vitamin C?
It is mostly found in fresh fruits and vegetables like citrus fruits, peppers, berries, tomatoes, leafy greens and potatoes – new potatoes have a particularly high content. The problem is that vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that can’t be stored in the body, so we have to make sure we reach the required levels every day.
A supplement could top you up and act as insurance if you don’t always hit your 5-a-day.
What does vitamin C do?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, supports multiple bodily processes and helps to keep us feeling physically and mentally well.
The many benefits of vitamin C:
Metabolic function: vitamin C helps our bodies turn the food and drink we consume into energy and stave away feelings of excessive tiredness and fatigue.
Psychological performance: vitamin C supports normal psychological function
Iron absorption: vitamin C is essential for iron absorption, which is one of the body’s most vital minerals
Collagen production: vitamin C plays an important part in collagen synthesis, which is found in our bones, hair, skin, nails, ligaments, blood vessels, joints and other parts of the body.
