The ascorbic acid used in our capsules is sourced from tapioca and therefore soy-free, corn-free, aspartame (and phenylalanine) free. There is no filler used as 100% of the capsule is filled with ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) has several mechanisms of action that give it wide-ranging value to body structures and functions. It is a potent water-soluble antioxidant; it enhances the immune system; and it supports connective tissue formation.
Vitamin C is necessary for the action of the enzymes involved in phase I liver detoxification. In addition, as an antioxidant it helps quench the free-radical intermediates created during this first phase of detoxifying substances in the liver. Furthermore, vitamin C raises levels of the important antioxidant glutathione by increasing its rate of synthesis, thus enhancing the liver's phase II detoxification as well. Vitamin C can also protect against the toxic effects of heavy metals such as lead, aluminium, and cadmium.
Take ONE capsule ONCE or TWICE a DAY or as directed by your health practitioner.
If you are pregnant or lactating‚ have any health condition or are taking any medication‚ consult your health professional before use.
Some people experience diarrhoea as a side effect of taking ascorbic acid. Diarrhoea can affect the way that some medicines (such as the contraceptive pill) are absorbed. If you experience any diarrhoea while taking other regular medication, talk to your doctor about the effects that diarrhoea may have had on its effectiveness.
