Redexon Vitamin C Effervescent Tablets are manufactured by the giant Swiss pharmaceutical company,Roche,and are easy to find at pharmacies, your local chemist and supermarket.The main down side is that they are expensive,

This product is a vitamin C supplement and the active ingredient is pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Through a variety of mechanisms,vitamin C plays an important part in the many vital metabolic processes,eg,growth and repair of body tissues. Smokers use up a lot of vitamin C,so taking a supplement is very wise.

Like all vitamins, vitamin C is not actually produced by the body but has to be obtained from the food we eat. Vegetables,fruit,particulaly citrus fruit such as oranges,lemons and grapefruits,are rich in this vitamin. Sizeable amounts of vitamin C are also found in liver and kidney but not unfortunately in other meats,cereals or dairy products. Vitamin C is somewhat sensitive and can be reduced significantly or lost in storage.

Redoxon comes in the form of tablets and each tablet contains 1000 mg of vitamin C. The dosage for adults is recommended as one tablet per day with the tablet to be dissolved in a glass of water before consumption. Half a tablet per day is suitable for children.

You are advised by the manufacturer to keep your Redoxon tube tightly closed and to protect it from both heat and moisture.

If you are prone to colds,especially with the onset of colder weather,then this dietary supplement is well worth your consideration. You can buy tubes containing ten tablets for around three pounds and as is well known vitamin C does help greatly in building up your resistance to infection. I have used Redoxon for several years now and feel it is a good product.

I was also told about these being excellent. Made my mind up to buy some now.

I've been taking Boots own version of these for some time now and they are 1500% RDA of vitamin C. My body certainly feels better in general. Great op, Geoff:)

Very helpful, especially for those who can't or don't like to get their Vit C from fruit and veg.
