Features & benefits
A delicious blackcurrant flavored chewable tablet.
This chewable tablet was designed to maximize patient compliance for both moderate to high intakes of vitamin C.
Each tablet delivers 500mg of vitamin C which is considered an optimal single oral dose (see detail in ‘background’).
The best way of taking vitamin C is in repeated small doses throughout the day rather than one single large oral dose as the absorption of vitamin C is governed by a saturable intestinal transportation system:
• Single doses below 30mg are completely absorbed
• Single doses of 30-500mg are 89% absorbed
• Single doses of between 1000mg and 1500mg are 50% absorbed
• Single doses of 12000mg are 16% absorbed Plasma levels of vitamin C plateau at daily intakes of between 500mg and 1500mg/day.
