Vitamin C 1000 MG Thompson’s Chewable Tablets 150

Vitamin C is vital for your immune system especially for allergy sufferers. We do not make Vitamin C in the body and need to rely on our dietary sources from eating citrus fruits – kiwi, lemons, oranges, grapefruit, limes; watermelons, melons, all berries, peppers, tomatoes, watercress and green and leafy vegetables.  Vitamin C is taken by more people than any other supplement but still there is a deficiency and this may be because when we are under stress conditions, whether it be mental, emotional, allergies or ailments, our body needs much more than the recommended dosage. Extra Vitamin C is needed for protection against environmental pollutants  – solvents, paint, cleaners and household products.

Vitamin C plays a primary role in the following :

  • Antioxidant to boost the immune system and fight against colds, infection and diseases
  • Helps in the body’s absorption of iron
  • Formation of collagen for growth and repair of body tissue cells, gums, bones and teeth
  • Speeds up healing in the body
  • Helps to lower blood pressure and increase HDL in cholesterol levels
  • Helps the liver to detoxify drugs and toxins

Deficiency Symptoms of Vitamin C

  • Overall weakness and low energy
  • Poor healing of wounds and infection
  • Irritability and mental fatigue and lack of concentration
  • Bleeding gums and loose teeth
  • Bruises easily
  • Nosebleeds
  • Joint pain
  • Allergies

When to take Vitamin C Chewable Tablets

It is best to cut the tablets in half for maximum absorption and much more cost effective. Any excess Vitamin C that is not absorbed is excreted in the urine (when your urine is yellow). Vitamin C should be taken with food as this is better for absorption, less acidic and gentler on the stomach.

If your urine is still yellow this means that you may not be absorbing and need to refer to the Lifestyle Guides for further information or just too much for your body in one go. Cut the tablets down to a quarter and you will find that this may be more economical until your absorption has picked up. The last thing you want to do is throw money down the toilet!
