Product Description

Melrose Vitamin Calcium Ascorbate is an easy-to-use daily nutrient powder that can be taken daily to provide antioxidant protection and immune support. It’s a gentler form of vitamin C buffered with natural mineral calcium to minimise acidic irritation for people with sensitive stomachs.

Powdered and unflavoured for easy dosage flexibility and versatility, simply add to smoothies, juices or a water bottle and feel the Melrose difference, every day.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and powerful antioxidant well-known for maintaining immune health and function. But it’s more than an “immunity vitamin”. It also assists body detoxification, iron absorption, and collagen and cartilage production for healthy bones, skin, and teeth.

It’s important to ensure that you get enough vitamin C daily as your body cannot make or store it. Vitamin C is also one of the first nutrients to be depleted in a body under stress. Low vitamin C levels may lead to compromised immune function, premature ageing and painful joints.

BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient that plays a critical role in the development, health and function of many parts of the body, most notably the immune system.

Apart from supporting immune cells, vitamin C also helps make collagen for healthy skin, bones and teeth, promotes wound healing, supports body detoxification and enhances iron absorption.

Supplementing with vitamin C:

  • Helps support a healthy immune system
  • Helps reduce the severity and duration of colds
  • Reduces free radicals formed in the body
  • Reduces free radical damage to body cells
  • Supports collagen formation
  • Supports healthy joint cartilage growth
  • Maintains bone, gum and teeth health
  • Maintains blood capillary health
  • Helps reduce mild allergy symptoms
  • Helps enhance iron absorption

WHY TAKE CALCIUM ASCORBATE?

Both calcium and vitamin C are essential for good health and wellbeing. They’re also both important for building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. But when taken alone, vitamin C can deplete calcium in the body, and it can also be too acidic for people with sensitive stomachs.

Calcium ascorbate is a neutral salt, not an acid. During digestion, the calcium ascorbate increased the total pH in the stomach (meaning it is less acidic) without affecting the amount of stomach acid. This means that the digestive ability is still the same but there is less irritation on the stomach lining. The calcium and the vitamin c is both equally well absorbed so you can reap the benefits of both!

This process is particularly beneficial for people who have sensitive stomachs, or need to increase their vitamin C and calcium levels. Melrose Vitamin C Calcium Ascorbate comes in a convenient powdered form, which adds the convenience of no pills to swallow and tighter dosage control.

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH VITAMIN C?

Vitamin C is naturally found in fruits and vegetables. But the Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that daily only about 50% of Australians eat enough fruit and less than 10% get in their veggies.

If your diet is lacking, you may not be consuming enough vitamin C.

Signs of vitamin C deficiency include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Easily bruised skin
  • Rough and dry skin
  • Swollen and painful joints
  • Dry and splitting hair
  • Slow wound healing
  • Getting regular colds

Melrose Vitamin C Calcium Ascorbate makes it easy to supplement your vitamin C if you feel your diet may be lacking in fruit and vegetables.
