FAQs

What does vitamin C do?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient. It has many important functions in the body, including maintaining normal skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage. 

 

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, which means that your body cannot produce it on its own. 

 

Therefore you will need to get your vitamin C through your diet and, if needed, a dietary supplement.

 

How much vitamin C per day should you take?

The NHS recommends that adults aged between 19 and 64 need 40mg of vitamin C each day. 

 

Your body is unable to store vitamin C and so it needs to be obtained via your diet each day.

 

If you need to supplement your diet with additional Vitamin C, you can do this by taking one of the Holland & Barrett Vitamin C and Zinc Lozenges in the morning and one in the evening alongside a healthy balanced diet. 

 

These lozenges slowly dissolve in your mouth, so they are very easy for to take.

 

What is vitamin C good for?

Vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system. It also helps to protect the cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

 

What foods contain the best amounts of vitamin C?

You should look to fruit and vegetables as these are the best food sources of vitamin C. 

 

Oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale and spinach are all excellent sources of the nutrient.

 

What is zinc?

Zinc is a nutrient that is found throughout the body in the cells. It is the second most abundant trace mineral in your body after iron. 

 

Just like vitamin C, zinc is an essential nutrient which your body does not naturally produce or store itself. 

 

So just like vitamin C, you need to get the zinc that your body needs through your diet. An additional supplement can help to support your zinc levels.

 

What is zinc good for?

Similar to vitamin C, zinc also helps to support the normal function of the immune system and the protection of the cells from oxidative stress.

 

Zinc also helps support cognitive function and protein and DNA synthesis.

 

What foods contain zinc?

A lot of foods are naturally rich in zinc and these foods include shellfish like oysters, crab and mussels; meats such as beef, pork and chicken; as well as legumes such as chickpeas, lentils and kidney beans.

 

Some foods are also fortified with zinc and these include some breakfast cereals, baking flours and snack bars.

 

Are vitamin C and zinc supplements suitable for vegetarians?

Great news! Holland & Barrett Vitamin C and Zinc Lozenges are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
