Vitamin C is needed for a healthy immune system healthy bones teeth and gums as well as helping to maintain normal blood fat and cholesterol levels. Our daily requirement for vitamin c is higher than any other water-soluble vitamin. Ideally vitamin c needs to be taken in small amounts throughout the day and night because it is rapidly lost from the body. However this is not always convenient which is why lamberts® have formulated time release vitamin c tablets. These tablets are produced by a special process that retains the nutrient in micropellets allowing it to be released slowly after the tablet has been swallowed. This means that the absorption of vitamin c is a continuous process as the gradual release takes place over 6 to 8 hours. Lamberts® time release vitamin c 500mg tablets also contain a relevant level of bioflavonoids because they are known to aid vitamin c absorption.
