General Description

Vitamin C – Dietary Supplement contains a highly purified source of ascorbic acid and is comparable to reagent grade vitamin C.  This hypo-allergenic form is made from tapioca instead of corn – having absolutely no traces of corn antigen or other allergenic materials – so that those individuals with food sensitivities who are not able to tolerate other, less pure forms of ascorbic acid can benefit.  In addition, no chemical lubricants are used in the encapsulation process and this product contains no diluents, preservatives or binders, thus insuring maximal tolerance and absorption.  Vitamin C plays a critical role in your body.  It is a powerful antioxidant, aids in wound healing, stimulates white blood cell immune activity and helps the body combat colds, flu and other infections.  It also supports cardiovascular health and aids in iron absorption.  Vitamin C deficiency can be a real problem and is not uncommon when undergoing emotional stress or higher levels of physical stress such as burns, surgery, or other trauma.  It is very beneficial when dealing with other ailments such as allergies and infections.

One to two capsules per day after a meal or as directed by your physician.  For patients with a Vitamin C deficiency and/or constipation (less than 3 bowel movements per day), add 1 capsule per day over 2 doses (morning and evening) until bowel tolerance (the dose tolerated by a patient without producing diarrhea) is reached. Some patients require up to 12 capsules per day (6 in the morning and 6 in the evening) to reach bowel tolerance. Hemolysis is possible when taking vitamin C of any type in patients with a G6PD deficiency and should be monitored.

Patient Reports

“My daughter and husband came home with nasty colds – sniffling, sneezing, runny noses, the whole bit.  I gave each of them Nutramedix Vitamin C and they woke up feeling right as rain!  (I was nervous since they’ve had reactions to other Vitamin C products.)  This stuff is miraculous!” -R.I.

“I’m highly sensitive to corn derivatives. Thrilled to finally find a safe Vitamin C! Definitely has improved my energy levels and immune system.” – A.B

“As a smoker, I pretty much always feel drained.  I came down with absolutely everything that was going around.  When I used a sample of this vitamin C, I had more energy and got through my day.”-N.L.

Dosage Information

One to two capsules per day after a meal or as directed by your physician.  For patients with a Vitamin C deficiency and/or constipation (less than 3 bowel movements per day), add 1 capsule per day over 2 doses (morning and evening) until bowel tolerance (the dose tolerated by a patient without producing diarrhea) is reached.
