Vitamin C without additives: what to pay attention to?
When purchasing a vitamin C supplement, it is important to pay attention to the ingredients next the vitamin C is stated on the label. The most important ingredient, namely vitamin C, is almost always referred to as 'vitamin C', 'ascorbic acid' or 'sodium ascorbate'.
On the labels of our natural vitamin C you will see 'sodium ascorbate'. This form is salt-bound and can therefore be absorbed well by our body. Our body is also naturally salty.
Superfluous additions: E numbers
At Goldea Health we believe the addition of the E numbers below, which are regularly used in nutritional supplements, is unnecessary. That's why you won't find them on our labels:
- E 460 (cellulose)
- E 1202 (polyvinylpolypyrrolidone)
- E 572 (magnesium stearate)
- E 551 (silicon dioxide)
- E 553b (talc)
- E 100 to 181 (colourants)
Superfluous additions: other names
Sometimes the E number is not mentioned. Then pay attention to the following names:
- E 572 and E 551 are anti-caking agents
- E 460 is a stabilizer
Superfluous additives: animal components
All Goldea Health supplements are completely plant-based. You will not find gelatin on the ingredients list, which is often used for the capsule or softgel. Our supplements have vegetable capsules. These are made from pectin, which is extracted from the peel of fruits.
