dragée tablets, OTC drug

Vitamin C – is a compound indispensable for human organism. It plays an important role in oxidation-reduction processes (creating a reversible oxidation-reduction system: ascorbic acid ↔ dehydroacsorbic acid), influences aromatic amino acid metabolism, thyroxin and insulin metabolism. It takes part in glucose phosphorylation and glycogen synthesis processes. In case of Vitamin C deficiency disorders of hyaluronic acid synthesis, collagen synthesis disorders, incorrect functions of connective tissue and ossification processes’ occur. The drug facilitates iron absorption and participates in hemoglobin synthesis. It stimulates immunity processes of the organism. It is well absorbed from the alimentary tract. It is eliminated through kidneys and significantly reduces urine pH.
