Vitamin C 1000mg time-release


The "High C" for the whole day.

Burgerstein Vitamin C time-release is characterized by a slow release of the active ingredient (over several hours). The acerola and rose hip fruit powder contained in Burgerstein Vitamin C has an abundance of natural vitamin C. 

The tablet must not be divided to achieve the time-release (depot function) effect! 

The body is not able to create vitamin C depots and, unlike many other mammals, cannot produce vitamin C itself. Therefore, vitamin C is an essential vitamin. The body absorbs as much vitamin C as it needs and excretes excess vitamin C again.

The product is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. ( vegan / vegi / vegetarian)

The (water-soluble) vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is probably the best known of all vitamins. It is mainly found in fresh vegetables, is involved in many metabolic processes and protects the cells from aggressive oxygen compounds (free radicals). Among other things, it also depends on gender how much vitamin C one needs per day. Other factors also influence the vitamin C requirement, for example environmental, physical or psychological stress and diseases, but also intensive sporting activity. The daily vitamin C requirement can also be increased during breastfeeding. Vitamin C is a recognized promoter of iron absorption. It converts plant-based, trivalent iron into the bivalent form and thus makes it more available.

Causes of a vitamin C disorder

With vitamin C there are also factors that can disrupt the balance of this vitamin - here are some examples: 

  • Older people, especially those with chronic illnesses and inflammation
  • Periods of extra need, such as during growth, pregnancy and lactation
  • Taking medication (contraceptives, cortisone preparations, proton-pump inhibitors)
  • Smokers

General information

Fruits and vegetables contain large amounts of vitamin C. If fruit is eaten daily, the normal requirement is well covered. Cooking greatly reduces the content, as vitamin C is water-soluble and oxidizes easily. Hot lemon or cooked vegetables quickly lose their vitamin C content. The reason: Vitamin C is not heat-resistant and is quickly destroyed at hot temperatures, this process already starts at about 40 degrees. Cereals, meat and dairy products contain little vitamin C.
