HealthAid Vitamin C 1000mg Chewable tabs 60
Vitamin C or L-ascorbic acid or L-ascorbate is an essential nutrient for humans and certain other animal species. In living organisms ascorbate acts as an antioxidant by protecting the body against oxidative stress.
Vitamin C is water-soluble and cannot be stored by the body, so a regular daily supply is essential for the maintenance of good health. Vitamin C reinforces the immune system as well as helping to maintain healthy blood cells; it is especially useful for keeping blood vessels, teeth, gums, skin and bones healthy. It also helps with absorption of iron from non-meat sources. Most HealthAid Vitamin C tablets are buffered to make them gentle on the stomach and contain Rosehip and Acerola, both natural bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are necessary for the absorption of Vitamin C and help protect the Vitamin from oxidizing damage in the body; they also help maintain capillary strength and help keep connective tissues strong and healthy
