#01 VITAMIN C: Support for your immune system
A healthy immune system is essential to fight disease and infection. Vitamin C plays an important role in supporting your resistance.
Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant. It protects the body against harmful external substances, such as smoke and stress, which can damage cells. Antioxidants render these harmful substances harmless, keeping you healthy and strengthening your immune system.
Our nutritional supplement, #01 Vitamin C, is specially formulated to support your immune system and contribute to a healthy defense against disease and infection.
By taking enough vitamin C, you give your immune system a boost and help to better protect your body against harmful invaders.
In addition, it is important to know when you can best take vitamin C. A good strategy is to spread it throughout the day so that your body continuously reaps its benefits.
It can be helpful to take a supplement at breakfast and lunch to ensure a steady supply of vitamin C throughout the day.

The many roles of Vitamin C: More than just an antioxidant
Vitamin C has numerous important functions in the body. In addition to supporting the immune system, vitamin C also plays a role in the absorption of iron from food, reducing fatigue and making you feel more energetic. In addition, vitamin C is essential for the formation of collagen, a protein necessary for healthy blood vessels, flexible veins and healthy bones. It is also involved in the formation and building of cartilage in the joints, which is important for good mobility and joint health.
Who needs extra Vitamin C?
Although vitamin C is important for everyone, some people need to be extra careful about adequate intake.
These include smokers, as they are exposed to harmful substances that increase the need for antioxidants. In addition, people with a weakened immune system, such as the elderly or those with certain medical conditions, may benefit from extra vitamin C to strengthen their defenses.
Signs of a vitamin C deficiency
A deficiency of vitamin C can lead to various health problems. Possible signs of deficiency include:
- Weakened resistance
- Slow wound healing
- An increased susceptibility to infections.
If you regularly experience these symptoms, it may be wise to increase your vitamin C intake.
The correct intake of vitamin C: How and when?
Many people wonder how best to take vitamin C. Our #01 Vitamin C supplement is available in convenient capsules, making it easy to take the right dose. We recommend taking the capsules with a meal, as this can promote the absorption of vitamin C.
In addition, people often wonder whether a dose of 1000 mg of vitamin C is too much. The answer depends on several factors, such as individual needs and health status. It is always wise to seek advice from our expert orthomolecular therapist to determine the correct dosage for your specific situation. Click here
Which Vitamin C to take? Sodium Ascorbate & Bioflavonoids
At Goldea Health, we believe in using high quality ingredients that are easily absorbed by the body. Our #01 Vitamin C is made from Sodium Ascorbate, a mild form of Vitamin C that does not burden the stomach and is easily absorbed. In addition, we have added citrus bioflavonoids to our supplement. These bioflavonoids increase the availability of vitamin C in the body and thus enhance its positive effect.
At Goldea Health, we understand that the world of nutritional supplements and orthomolecular therapy can be complex. We would like to emphasize that we are not legally allowed to provide all (complete) information about the effect of our Vitamin C supplement.
For detailed advice and more information, we recommend that you contact our orthomolecular nutritionist.
Remember that taking vitamin C can be a valuable addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. It can support your immune system, reduce fatigue, contribute to a feeling of fitness and play a role in collagen formation for healthy blood vessels and flexible joints.
