Slow release Vitamin C with Citrus Bioflavonoids

Ultra Vitamin C provides slow release vitamin C formulated with 25mg of citrus bioflavonoids, for maximum absorption and effectiveness. Vitamin C contributes to normal function of the immune and nervous system. It also increases non-haem iron absorption, the mineral essential for healthy blood formation and also supports normal collagen formation.

Because vitamin C is not stored in the body but needed in a continuous supply, Ultra Vitamin C has been specially formulated with a sustained release action to ensure gradual and even bioavailability for maximum utilisation.

Ultra Vitamin C may be especially suitable for:

  • Immune support
  • Athletes, sportsmen and sportswomen
  • Over 50s
  • Those with hectic lifestyles.

Protection of Cells

Bioflavonoids are a group of plant pigments that are responsible for the colours of many fruits. Citrus bioflavonoids are those bioflavonoids, or flavonoids, found in citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, etc.

Free radicals are produced in excess due to exposure to pollution, sunlight and many other factors such as cigarette smoke, and modern day-to-day living. Vitamin C supports the body's ability to neutralise free radicals by contributing to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Collagen synthesis

Collagen Synthesis

Vitamin C is a co-factor for collagen synthesis, the substance that keeps skin supple. It contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, teeth, cartilage, skin and blood vessels.

A Normal Immune and Nervous System

Extra vitamin C is important for overall health and wellbeing as it contributes to the normal functioning of the immune and nervous systems.

Supporting Iron Absorption

Several foods and beverages contain substances that inhibit iron absorption, including tea and coffee. Vitamin C increases non-haem iron absorption, the mineral essential for normal formation red blood cells and haemoglobin. Iron is important in the body as it contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body to all cells and organs.

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help. Top

"I’ve been taking Ultra Sage for all most a year. I would recommend it to anyone who is currently going through the menopause. ''Brilliant'' thank you."

Mrs Joanne Eaton, United Kingdom

"I decided to try Ultra Bilberry, Lutein and Zeaxanthin tablets (already aware that bilberries are good for your eyes) and see if they made any difference. I'm delighted to be able to say that there has been a distinct improvement. Thank you for an excellent product."

Miss Z , United Kingdom

Jemiah Umolu is a true up and coming football star of the future! At just nine years old, he is already signed by Arsenal FC to play in their Under 12 team and is rated one of their best in his age group. Jemiah is a convert to Vitabiotics and this is his father’s testimonial…
"Roughly eight weeks ago my son was registered injured by his football club, Arsenal FC. He was advised to have three to six months rest from all sport. Given he plays for a professional academy, he couldn't afford to take this amount of time off. A week later he started a course of Vitabiotics Jointace, Osteocare and Ultra Omega 3, and just three weeks later he was himself once again. He has and will remain taking Jointace and other Vitabiotics products to maintain healthy joints, teeth and bones as he is still growing."

Mr John Umolu, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend Vitabiotics Ultra Krill Oil enough. I have been taken them for 6 months they are great. I have told my doctor about what they have done for me. I have never recommend any thing before but these I feel I must tell you"

Mrs Mary S, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend these enough! They support so many functions of the body, and this is the perfect level (I take 2 each day). They are individually sealed for freshness, and the price is perfect for the amount provided."
