Product Information

For some people, when they take Vitamin C in its pure basic form of ascorbic acid it may cause some gastric upset due to its acidic nature. To overcome this, the vitamin C in this product is neutralised with calcium to produce a compound called an ascorbate which in a non-acidic compound of Vitamin C. These tablets are therefore gentle on the stomach and ideal for those with delicate digestions, or for anyone taking large amounts of Vitamin C.

Although the product is called ‘gentle’ it nevertheless provides a high strength dose of Vitamin C, and if you choose this product you can be certain you are getting the same effective level of Vitamin C as you would from our other Vitamin C 500mg tablets.

Gentle Vitamin C does not harm the stomach like some other Vitamin C products. I have found it very beneficial since I suffer from an inflammatory condition in my stomach and intestines. I would recommend it to anyone suffering a similar condition.
