What is the recommended daily dosage for the vitamins you offer?
All our tablets and the effervescents come with a recommended daily dosage of one per day unless prescribed otherwise by your practitioner or pharmacist.
Vitamin C aka ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble antioxidant which is not naturally produced in the human body, only stored in small amounts. That’s why it’s essential that we take it via our daily diet, and if that’s not possible a supplement is a great alternative.
Vitamin C is a key vitamin for us humans as it helps our immune and nervous systems to function normally, protects the cells from oxidative stress, aids collagen synthesis for normal bone, skin, teeth and blood vessel function and last but not least, it increases the absorption of iron which is really important for energy release particularly during and after physical exertion.
The recommended daily dose for adults (15 and over) is 40mg per day (50mg for pregnant women) and 30 for children of 1-10, going up to 35 for 11-14 year olds. These are the official UK Department of Health guidelines, however Vitamin C is generally safe to take in bigger amounts especially when you’re fighting an infection or are under great physical stress. Always consult your physician before deciding to increase the recommended daily dose.
