WHAT IS IN THE MEDICINE?
Each capsule contains 562.43 mg of Sodium Ascorbate that provides 500 mg of its active substance, Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C. This vitamin is used for the prevention and treatment of Vitamin C deficiency symptoms like scurvy (characterized by capillary fragility, bleeding of small blood vessels and gums, normocytic or macrocytic anaemia, lesions of cartilages and bones and slow healing of wounds). It is essential for the synthesis of collagen and intercellular materials. Ascorbic acid acts to stimulate the production of collagen (abundant protein of the body for protection of mucosal linings and other connective tissues for maintaining of organs) and being a potent antioxidant, it effectively fights free radicals and harmful effects of these in the body. Zinc on the other hand helps in the proper replication of cells’ DNA which is required for cells to multiply and thus needed for normal growth, cell renewal and cell repair. Vitamin C and zinc also function as cofactors of enzyme involved in collagen (abundant protein of the body for protection of mucosal linings and other connective tissues for maintaining of organs) formation and synthesis.
