For prevention and treatment of vitamin C deficiency

We need vitamin C (ascorbic acid) as essential nutrient and depend on exogenous intake. The best vitamin C sources are freshly harvested fruit and vegetables. However, vitamin C is sensitive to oxygen, light, and heat.

Therefore, long storage periods and long cooking processes must be avoided. They can lead to vitamin loss.

If the vitamin C level is too low due to an underlying disease or insufficient intake through the diet, this undersupply should be balanced by taking Vitamin C 500 Filmtabletten.
