These are produced by a special process that retains the vitamin in micro-pellets allowing it to be released slowly after the tablet has been swallowed. This means that the absorption of vitamin C is a continuous process as the release from the tablet takes place over 6-8 hours, thus allowing the absorption of vitamin C into the blood stream to occur gradually. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen and cartilage formation, and to the normal function of the immune system. It also helps to protect cells from oxidative damage from free radicals.
This is a high strength product suitable for all adults, including the elderly, those convalescing and anyone who has irregular eating habits.
Why was sweetener omitted?
I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing difficulty swallowing these tablets. These have to be of a certain size in order to contain 1000mg for vitamin C. In order for the time release aspect of this tablet to function properly these are designed to be swallowed whole which is why these are not flavoured or sweetened.
For future reference we are able to send out a sample of any of our tablets / capsules (excluding THRs) should you wish to assess the size of them. We also have a Vitamin C 500mg Time Release (code 645) within our range for those who wish to take a smaller tablet. I have contacted you directly to discuss this further.
