About Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is responsible for at least 300 metabolic functions in the body including, but not limited to, the production of collagen, which forms the basis of connective tissues such as bones, teeth, and cartilage, wound-healing, supporting healthy immune and nervous system functions, production of adrenal hormones, supporting cardiovascular health, and supporting healthy aging.

Because the body cannot manufacture Vitamin C, it must be obtained through diet or supplementation. It must also be noted that Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, and excess Vitamin C is not stored in the body; for this reason, Vitamin C levels must be continually replenished via diet or supplementation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the active ingredients in Vitamin C Gold?
The active ingredients in Vitamin C Gold are 100% natural, certified organic Vitamin C and bioflavonoids.

Does Vitamin C Gold contain anything other than the active ingredients?

In addition to the active ingredient, Vitamin C Gold contains some certified organic rice concentrate. Because natural extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness) and particle size, it is sometimes necessary to add rice concentrate during the manufacturing process to help ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.

What is the optimal daily dosage of Vitamin C?
There is very little consensus on what the optimal daily amount of Vitamin C is and the actual amount varies from 250 mg to 10 grams per day. Some of this variation may be explained by the reasons for supplementing with Vitamin C. Vitamin C requirement is increased during periods of psychological (e.g. anxiety) and physiological stress (e.g. infection, alcohol and drug use, injury, surgery, burns or fatigue).

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for an adult ranges between 90 mg to 125 mg per day and this dosage is considered adequate for prevention of Vitamin C deficiency. There are also a number of reasons why smaller doses of Vitamin C taken throughout the day is likely to be far more effective than taking a high dose of Vitamin C all at once.

  • Blood levels of Vitamin C take about 2 to 3 hours to reach their peak, after which point levels start to decrease as unabsorbed Vitamin C is eliminated in the urine and through perspiration
  • Higher doses of Vitamin C don't necessarily provide additional benefits beyond what are achieved at smaller doses (~ 250 mg)
  • Taken orally, the larger the dose, the less is absorbed. For example, 80% of a 250 mg Vitamin C supplement will be absorbed, whereas only 50% of a 2000 mg supplement will be absorbed (the rest is excreted through urination or perspiration)
  • Excess Vitamin C (~ 2000 mg a day) increases urine oxalate, a component of a common variety of kidney stone, by 22%, and men who take 1000 mg or more of Vitamin C have up to a 40% higher risk of stone formation

BOTTOM LINE: The optimal dosing for Vitamin C supplements may be to take it in small daily doses (~250 mg) to minimize risk of deficiency and increase the frequency of dosing (~ 250 mg every 3 to 4 hours up to 4 times a day) during times of psychological and/or physiological stress.*

Is Vitamin C Gold free of allergens and GMOs?
Vitamin C Gold is verified free of corn, egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish and soy allergens by an independent lab. It is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.

Is Vitamin C Gold suitable for vegans/vegetarians?
Vitamin C Gold is certified vegan by Vegan Action.

How long do I have to take Vitamin C Gold before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most herbal supplements, including Vitamin C Gold, need to be taken for at least 8 to 12 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness.

What are the side effects, interactions, and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Vitamin C?
Vitamin C does not have any known side effects. Please consult your healthcare provider before using Vitamin C Gold if you are taking estrogens, medications for cancer, medications used for HIV/AIDS, medications for lowering cholesterol, calcium channel blockers or antihypertensive drugs, niacin, blood thinners, antipsychotics, acetaminophen, NSIADS, or aspirin, or any other OTC or prescription medications. Heart attack, smoking and chewing tobacco may lower vitamin C levels in the body, making supplementation necessary. Individuals with cancer, diabetes, blood-iron disorders, kidney stones, or a history of kidney stones, sickle cell disease, or any other known or suspected medical condition, those planning a medical procedure (especially angioplasty), and women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding should consult a healthcare professional before taking Vitamin C.

Is Vitamin C Gold safe for long-term use?
Vitamin C Gold should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when used as directed and under the guidance of an experienced herbalist or other healthcare provider.
