Vitamin C Supplements, Bio-C-Vitamin from Pharma Nord contains 750 mg of vitamin C, equivalent to 1.5 kilos of oranges. It is blister-packed to protect the delicate active ingredients from the atmosphere. Vitamin C is water-soluble and must be obtained from the diet, as it cannot be produced by the body.

Vitamin C also contributes to normal collagen function for normal functioning of bones, teeth, cartilage, gums, skin and blood vessels.
Manufactured to pharmaceutical standards. Designed to withstand stomach acidity in order to ensure optimum absorption. Bio-C-Vitamin is also in a buffered non-acidic form. Contains 750 mg of vitamin C per tablet, equivalent to 1.5 kilos of oranges. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

The toxicity of vitamin C is extremely low with intakes of 1000mg being safely taken. Intakes in excess of 2000mg per day may cause gastro-intestinal disturbance in susceptible individuals and may also interfere with absorption of calcium and selenium. Vitamin C facilitates the absorption of iron from the diet, therefore high doses should not be taken by those with iron overload syndromes such as thalasaemia and haematochromatosis. High intakes of vitamin C should not be taken by those susceptible to kidney stones. Pregnant or lactating women and those on medication should consult a doctor before taking nutritional supplements.
