See how time-released vitamin C can help you

Vitamin C is one of the body’s most important vitamins and keeping levels topped up is vital for overall health.

These Holland & Barret Timed Release Vitamin C Caplets with Rose Hips can help you to meet your requirements all day every day, with added rose hips – a natural vitamin C source.

What is vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that has to be consumed every day, as the body cannot store it. You can find it in a whole range of fresh fruits and vegetables like peppers, citrus fruits, tomatoes, potatoes (especially new potatoes) and leafy greens.

What are the benefits of vitamin C?

System support: It helps to support your immune system and nervous system.

Helps absorb iron: your body needs vitamin C to be able to absorb iron – one of the body’s most vital minerals

Aids metabolism: vitamin C contributes to the normal running of the metabolic system – helping to turn food and drink into energy for exercise and daily life, as well as reduce feelings of fatigue and tiredness

Collagen synthesis: collagen holds our bodies together – literally – playing an important part in the health of our nails, skin, hair, bones, joints, blood vessels and other parts of the body. The body needs vitamin C to make collagen, and as our natural collagen production lessens as we age, keeping vitamin C levels up becomes even more important.

Why is this vitamin C supplement time-released?

Our timed-release formula is designed to provide longer lasting action as the nutrients are released over an extended period of time.

  • Timed release immune system support
  • Coated caplet food supplement
  • Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune & nervous system, & contributes to reduction of tiredness & fatigue

Can these vitamins cause side effects?

Taking large amounts of vitamin C can cause diarrhoea, stomach pain and flatulence. These side effects tend to be minor. If your reaction is more serious, be sure to contact your GP.

Who are these vitamin C tablets suitable for?

Holland & Barrett’s timed release vitamin C supplements are suitable for adult use.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you are taking prescribed medication, it is important to consult your GP before taking vitamin or herbal supplements.

How much vitamin C do I need?

Adults aged between 19 and 64 need 80mg of vitamin C each day.

In some instances, you may choose to take more, particularly when your immunity is low or if you are struggling to absorb iron.

2000mg vitamin C is the maximum recommended amount for adults.

What do you mean by timed release?

These timed release vitamin C capsules release their ingredients over time.

Because it is dissolved slowly in the digestive system, this ascorbic acid tablet provides a constant concentration of vitamins for use as needed.

This minimises the waste of water soluble vitamin C, which cannot be stored in the body, meaning that excess is eliminated if not used.

What are the best vitamin C food sources?

Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits like oranges and lemons. It is also found in high quantities in peppers, strawberries and broccoli, as well as in blackcurrants and even in potatoes.

Most people can get all the vitamin C their body requires from a healthy, balanced diet. However, a vitamin C supplement can help you to ensure you are consuming enough.

What is vitamin C and why do I need it?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a vital vitamin that every one of us needs in our day to day life.

An essential vitamin, meaning that your body does not make vitamin C but needs to find it from a food or supplement source, vitamin C helps us with healing and cell protection.

It also helps with the maintenance of healthy skin, bones and cartilage. Studies suggest that vitamin C also supports our immunity and helps with iron absorption too.
