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.

After searching the internet many times I came across an article recommending Vit C as an aid to reducing the symptoms of tennis elbow which I have had for two and a half years despite seeing a physio and two chiropracters. Vit C is involved in the making of collagen which is found in the tendons which in tennis elbow are inflamed. While I take with a pinch of salt much I read on the internet I thought to try Vit C and am pleased to say I have had a slight improvement in the condition and will continue taking it.

"Very effective in reducing severity of recent cold."
By Ruth Walker , 04 Apr 2019
I decided to try this product as I have a very sensitive stomach, and I wanted to be able to take a larger daily dose of Vitamin C. I have osteoporosis, and prefer to treat myself with Vitamins and minerals, rather than other medication.

"No real colds so far this winter"
By Judith Wanstall , 19 Feb 2019
A few sneezes and runny nose but no horrendous coughs. I take this coupled with zinc as a preventative. The gentle side of it seems to work well as I have not had any gastric upsets with it.

"So far so good"
By Kathleen Nye , 20 Sep 2018
Previous frequent urinary tract infections. Recommended by doctor after an exploritary op and bladder stretch. Hadn’t taken vit c before due to being prescribed calcium ( these tabs contain calcium) and acid reflux. I’ve been fine so far. Wasn’t sure how to space out my meds and Vits as didn’t want to take them all together ......
