Vitamin C without additives: what to watch out for?
When purchasing a vitamin C supplement, it is important to pay attention to the ingredients listed next to the vitamin C 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 naturally salty.
Unnecessary additions: E numbers
At Goldea Health we find the addition of the E numbers below, which are regularly used in food supplements, unnecessary. That’s why you won’t find them on our labels:
- E 460 (celluose)
- E 1202 (polyvinylpolypyrrolidone)
- E 572 (magnesium stearate)
- E 551 (silicon dioxide)
- E 553b (talk)
- E 100 to 181 (dyes)
Superfluous additions: other names
Sometimes the E number is not named. Then pay attention to the following names:
- E 572 and E 551 are anti-clotting 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 skin of fruits.
Get vitamin C from food or supplements?
Our body cannot make vitamin C itself. Many animals and plants can do this. Fortunately, we can get vitamin C from food or nutritional supplements.
A varied diet with enough vegetables and fruit should suffice for the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. You can choose to support your health with supplements.
The nutrition center uses 75 milligrams of vitamin C as the daily recommended amount (RDA) for adults.
Food supplements suitable for vegans
At Goldea Health we think your health is important, but we want to cause as little damage as possible to people, animals and our planet during the production process of our supplements. All Goldea Health products therefore contain no animal ingredients.
