Many preparations are offered, ranging from levels of 500 mg there is also a 1000 mg, there is an orange flavor, or taste wine, melons, strawberries, etc.. The form is also variety in the form of pure tablets, there is a form of effervescent tablets (must be soaked in water first, after which the water can be drunk) to the form of syrup with a variety of flavors that are ready to drink. Do we need to consume?

Actually that is vitamin C is ascorbat acid, this vitamin has a water-soluble nature, because it is water soluble, the body can not store it for long, so we need an adequate supply of vitamin C every day. Actually, if we eat everyday to follow a balanced diet, we certainly will not lack vitamin c, because a lot of foods rich in vitamin C such as orange, papaya, red pepper and yellow pepper, grapes, mangoes, broccoli and many more. While the need for vitamin C per day is only about less than 45 mg a day.
