May reduce the severity and duration of colds. May also assist wound healing via its role in collagen production.

Features and benefits

Contains citrus bioflavonoids extract that helps increase the uptake and utilisation of vitamin C in the body.
Buffered with mineral ascorbates making it gentle on the stomach.
Contains the natural sources of vitamin C, rosehips and acerola.


How it works

Vitamin C is involved in hundreds of biological process, the most important being in the manufacture of collagen, the major protein in the body. Collagen is a structural protein found in tissue, cartilage and tendons, and it helps to support blood vessels. Due to its structural role in collagen synthesis vitamin C is necessary for wound repair, healthy gums, minimising of bruising and to replace the risk of infection.
Vitamin C is water-soluble and only small amounts are stored in the body after it is absorbed from the intestine. It is an antioxidant in water, and therefore helps to neutralise potentially harmful reactions in the blood and the watery fluid inside and outside the body’s cells.
