Vitamin C 1000mg Effervescent

Effervescent Vitamin C 1000mg tablets from Health Aid are dissolvable refreshing, fruit flavoured tablets which make up into a drink containing a full gram of Vitamin C in a readily absorbable form. This product provides an alternative way of taking supplements especially for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets.

Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant. Even in small amounts vitamin C can protect indispensable molecules in the body, such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species that can be generated during normal metabolism as well as through exposure to toxins and pollutants (e.g. smoking). It is therefore linked to prevention of degenerative diseases - such as cataracts, certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. Vitamin C may also be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E.

All fruits and vegetables contain some amount of vitamin C, but it is easily destroyed by cooking. Foods that tend to be the highest sources of vitamin C include green peppers, citrus fruits and juices, strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, turnip greens and other leafy greens, sweet and white potatoes, and cantaloupe. Other excellent sources include papaya, mango, watermelon, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, winter squash, red peppers, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and pineapples.

Although scurvy (severe vitamin C deficiency) is uncommon in Western societies, many doctors believe that most people consume less than optimal amounts. Fatigue, easy bruising, and bleeding gums are early signs of vitamin C deficiency that occur long before scurvy develops. Smokers have low levels of vitamin C and require a higher daily intake to maintain normal vitamin C levels.

Women with pre-eclampsia have been found to have lower blood levels of vitamin C than women without the condition. Women who have lower blood levels of vitamin C have an increased risk of gallstones.

What are Effervescent Vitamin C 1000mg tablets for?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is necessary for normal growth and development. This means that the body does not store it, and excess amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet on a daily basis to replenish stores.

People with kidney failure have an increased risk of vitamin C deficiency. However, people with kidney failure should take vitamin C only under the care of their primary healthcare physician.

Other deficiency signs and symptoms include:

  • Dry and splitting hair
  • Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)
  • Bleeding gums
  • Rough, dry, scaly skin
  • Decreased wound-healing rate
  • Easy bruising
  • Nosebleeds
  • Weakened tooth enamel
  • Swollen and painful joints
  • Anaemia
  • Decreased ability to fight infection
  • Possible weight gain because of slowed metabolism
