Chewable Vitamin C 90t is available by Pharmax.
Features & benefits
A delicious blackcurrant flavored chewable tablet.
This chewable tablet was designed to maximize patient compliance for both moderate to high intakes of vitamin C.
Each tablet delivers 500mg of vitamin C which is considered an optimal single oral dose (see detail in ?background?).
The best way of taking vitamin C is in repeated small doses throughout the day rather than one single large oral dose as the absorption of vitamin C is governed by a saturable intestinal transportation system:
? Single doses below 30mg are completely absorbed
? Single doses of 30-500mg are 89% absorbed
? Single doses of between 1000mg and 1500mg are 50% absorbed
? Single doses of 12000mg are 16% absorbed Plasma levels of vitamin C plateau at daily intakes of between 500mg and 1500mg/day.
Typically, per tablet
