How much Vitamin C is in one capsule?
Active Iron contains a small quantity (about 18mg) of vitamin C which acts as a preservative within the formulation.
Vitamin C, if taken in large doses (250-500 mg) can improve the absorption of iron. However, the quantity of vitamin C in Active Iron is not enough to enhance absorption.
Active Iron has been clinically proven to ensure better absorption of iron. There is no need to use an ‘enhancer’ like Vitamin C to boost absorption further. However, there is no issue you wish to take Active Iron with a vitamin C supplement or a glass of orange juice.
