Vitamin C is involved in over 5000 biochemical processes every day. Because of this, Vitamin C is one of those vitamins that most should consider taking an extra dose of.
The consumption of many pharmacy drugs can increase the excretion of Vitamin c in the body.
High doses of Vitamin C may decrease the absorption of copper from the digestive tract.
Factors increasing the demand for extra Vitamin c include acute or chronic inflammatory conditions, allergies, artherosclerosis, burns, diabetes, drug toxicity, heavy metal intoxification, prolonged infection, intestinal disease, periodontal disease, pressure sores, radium therapy, scar tissue, smokers, stress, surgery.
Scurvy symptoms in adults include a loss of appetite, diarrhoea, shortness of breath, weakness and fever followed by irritability, depression, leg pain, swelling over long bones of the body, anaemia, paleness, poor wound healing, dry eyes, skin thickening (hyperkeratosis) and bleeding behind the eyes causing prominence, bleeding at the joints of the ribs and sternum causing discolouration under the skin of the chest.
Scurvy symptoms in children include irritability, thigh tenderness, pseudoparalysis, bleeding around the lower ends of the leg bones (femur and tibia) causing pain, and assumption of a frog like posture.
Henry Osiecki in his eighth edition of The Nutrient Bible gives these as a daily dosage:
A Therapeutic range: 250-2000 mg. Doses higher than 2 grams have been used in those with cancer (10-40 grams have been used depending on the problem)
Children 1-3 years: 50mg
Tolerable upper intake Levels (UL) for Vitamin C for childrens and young people:
1-3 years old: 400mg/day
4-8 years old: 650mg/day
9-13 years old: 1200mg/day
14-18 years old: 1800mg/day (included pregnant or breastfeeding females
To use: Snip off a 6 mm strip to open the sachet. Squeeze contents in a tumbler type glass with 2cm of purified water, swirl contents once or twice.
I personally squeeze the contents directly into my mouth and swallow promptly. I do not swish it around, i just swallow it in 1 swallow.

Please note: NZ Longevity are constantly reviewing their formulations to give you the highest quality natural products. They have recently changed to a new supplier of one of the ingredients for the Vitamin C sachets and you will notice the colour has darkened and the taste has changed slightly.
This, in no way, compromises the quality of this product and in fact, it enhances it. Kind regards Bruno
Keep out of reach of Children. Refrigeration will enahnce shelf life. Longevity Foundation tell us: We expect our sachets shelf life (in a cool shady place) at approx 3 months at room temperature, but please note that under refrigeration, this can be extended to 12 months.
The outer orange label does recommend keeping the product "Refrigerated". This is merely to extend the shelf life. Therefore if you wish to carry a few sachets in your pocket or handbag, there is no problem.
