An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Keep well and stay safe.

This soluble fine white crystal formulation is ideal for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets. Calcium Ascorbate is a non-acidic form of Vitamin C. These soluble fine crystals provide a useful amount of calcium and are suitable for those with intestinal problems.

Vitamin C:
  • Is involved in cell and the repair of tissues.
  • It is involved in the conversion of proline (an amino acid) to hydroxyproline (a non-essential amino acid necessary for the construction collagen).
  • Essential in collagen maintenance in skin, bones and teeth.
  • Is required for the activity of leucocytes, immunoglobulins and natural antibodies.
  • Protects vitamins A and E against damage.
  • Helps to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
  • Is involved in the formation of corticosteroid hormones in the adrenal gland.

Vitamin C was first discovered in 1932 and was the subject of the first controlled nutritional experiment in recorded history. It is known to be involved in at least 300 biochemical pathways in the body. It is a water soluble vitamin which cannot be produced by humans and so is taken into the system via the diet.
