Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin that has a wide range of functions in the human body, with its primary function being a excellent antioxidant. We also add bioflavonoids as they enhance the action of Vitamin C and for this reason they should be taken together. Our high strength (1000mg) tablets are ideal for anyone wanting to supplement with Vitamin C.
One of vitamin C's most important functions is acting as an antioxidant, protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidative damage. When LDL is damaged the cholesterol appears to lead to heart disease, but vitamin C acts as an important antioxidant protector of LDL. The antioxidant properties also protect smokers from the harmful effects of free radicals.
Vitamin C has lots of other additional functions. It is needed to make collagen, a substance that strengthens many parts of the body, such as muscles and blood vessels. It also plays an important role in healing and as an anti-histamine. Vitamin C also aids in the formation of liver bile which helps to detoxify alcohol and other substances. Evidence indicates that vitamin C levels in the eye decrease with age and that vitamin C supplements prevent this decrease, lowering the risk of developing cataracts.

The taste is good(i could say its even tasty). The pill is a little hard to swallow - big and feels like sand. I found it very effective, recommend it!Goes Well With:Water, basicly every supplement

These pills have become too physically large and a problem in swallowing them. Even if you cut them in half, which is a pain, they have no coating to help them go down. Come on MyProtein, lets have a better pill please.

Too large and no coating. I won't be buying these again.
been taking this supplement for a while now, I've been taking this with my proteins zinc and magnesium and my immune system has gone through the roof, I'm a student living in a 5 bedroom house, and all my house mates have come down with colds and such and I've been absolutely fine. i take them in the morning on an empty stomach, those not used to vitamin c might find they end up on the toilet the first few times but your body will get used to it.Goes Well With:zinc and magnesium, may also want copper if supplementing zinc.
good size tablet easy to swallow and helps fight colds and flu at this time of year well pleased thanks.Goes Well With:zinc
Great product. Only problem is they are shorter and fatter than most vitamin pills, and they are not coated so the rough texture can cause difficulty when swallowing.Goes Well With:Alpha men
I bought this Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip for the winter because I catch colds easily. After taking these, this is the first winter for as long as I can remember where I haven't had the flu! Also the pills are a very manageable size, so you shouldn't have any problems taking them.Goes Well With:Alpha Men, Glucosamine Sulphate
Effective as a vit C supplement, tablet easy to take and tastes fine even without have water to take with.
The Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip is good value for money.
Unfortunately these pills are so large and have no coating that I am unable to take them. I ended up having to buy mortar and pestle and crush them into powder, which, fortunately tastes quite ok in my tea. But this is of course not ideal! I don't see what the problem would be with making them a bit smaller...
Great supplement. The Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip is great value too.
Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip is an excellent product! I hope my cortisol is aware that I am taking this excellent product.Goes Well With:Water
The Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip is more than a necessary supplement in my opinion. This product contains not just ascorbic acid, but bioflavonoids, which makes the absorption much more effective, and also good for strengthen the capillaries. The added rosehip also good for antioxidant. I do not regret buying this product, and probably will buy it again.
It is what it is. A good product all round I take this once 3 times daily with meals for extra vitamin c intake. Goes Well With:all the other good stuff !!
Went well with other supplements hard exercise and high protein diet.
This Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip is a very good product, easy to take!
The Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip pills might be a bit big for some people. But you can always take in two half's. These are a good product and were delivered on time as usual.
Perfect dosage per tab and I love the added extras. Not only that but incredible value for money. MP does it again. ThanksGoes Well With:Anything
Only been on these tabs for about 2 weeks now. They ain't the best tasting tab but that doesn't matter (Its not like you have to chew them). Since taking these along with Alpha men multi vitamins n minerals and omega 3,6,9 I seem to have a lot more energy. I feel healthier (sounds daft but true). It's good to know that my body is getting the right things it needs.Goes Well With:alpha men multi vits and mins, omega 3 6 9
My doctor recommended I took a vitamin C supplement to help the recovery for a large wound I have. So far, this Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip has aided the recovery of my large wound. I've tried many Vitamin C supplements from high street health stores and they don't compare to this. The quality of the supplement exceeds all others I have used. I purchased the large 180 tabs, which will last me almost half a year, so is excellent value. I have been pleased with the product in terms of effectiveness. My wound was expected to heal within 4 months. 3 weeks into this supplement and I'm already seeing results.
Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip is a great supplement for people who are not able to take in much Vitamin C from fruits etc. This is a quick and easy supplement to take to the gym. I put some tablets I need in a box or a small bag to take to the gym or work and they go down my throat easily. I have noticed that I am less prone to colds too as recently, most of the time, I have a runny nose or worse. This supplement has reduced these problems dramatically.
