60 capsules: Food form vitamin C
Food form vitamin C is a combination, food state vitamin C supplement, derived from some of nature’s richest sources of this essential vitamin and antioxidant: Acerola cherries, rosehips, blackcurrants, parsley leaf and elderberries.
The natural food ingredients are more easily recognised by the body, facilitating maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation. The vitamin C is retained for longer; not rapidly eliminated.
Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, pectins, essential oils, lycopene, carotenoids, plant sterols, catechins, polyphenolics and many other phyto-nutrients, this vitamin C supplement is gentle and non-acidic. No artificial vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
Ideal for long-term usage.
