Citrus bioflavonoids increase absorption
A+ Vitamin C provides a whopping 500 mg of vitamin C and 50 mg of citrus bioflavonoids per tablet. Citrus bioflavonoids interact with vitamin C by increasing its absorption in the different parts of the body. This means that the bioflavonoids contribute to promoting the positive properties of vitamin C [ 3 ] .
Smart Time Release function
A+ Vitamin C also has a smart Time Release function which means that the active content is released slowly in the digestive system and is completely dissolved after 4 hours. The concentration in the blood then becomes more even over time.

Humans are one of the few species that cannot form vitamin C
Most animals manufacture vitamin C daily from glucose in the kidneys and liver and are therefore not dependent on getting it through the diet. Humans, on the other hand, are one of the few species that cannot form vitamin C themselves, and therefore we need to supply the vitamin via the diet or through dietary supplements. Signs of vitamin C deficiency are, in the most serious case, scurvy, which causes bleeding in the muscles, joints and skin.
