How to take

Generally, effervescent vitamin C is available in different doses, and may be associated with other substances, such as zinc or vitamin D, and the dosage must be determined by the doctor according to the need, the person’s clinical history and age. There are also vitamin C formulations that can be given to children and pregnant women, who have lower dosages.

The dosage of effervescent Vitamin C in adults and children over 12 years old is 1 effervescent tablet, which is equivalent to 1g of vitamin C per day, diluted in a glass of water with about 200 mL, at any time. However, before doing this treatment, you should consult a doctor, as the use of supplements can cause excess of the vitamin in the body. See what happens if you consume too much vitamin C.

It is recommended to take the effervescent vitamin C preferably in the morning, letting the tablet dissolve in a glass of water and never take it before it is completely dissolved.

what are the benefits

Vitamin C functions as an important antioxidant vitamin, which participates in various metabolic reactions in the body, such as the metabolism of folic acid, phenylalanine, tyrosine, iron, histamine, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and carnitine.

This vitamin is also very important in collagen synthesis, which is why it is often present in collagen supplements. Collagen is essential for the maintenance of skin, mucous membranes, bones, teeth and preservation of blood vessel integrity.

In addition, it also plays a fundamental role in the functioning of the immune system, as it contributes to the protection of cells against the action of free radicals, as well as reactive oxygen species, which are generated by the inflammatory response. Vitamin C is also necessary for the proper functioning of white blood cells, their movement, elimination of viruses and bacteria, and wound healing.
