- "Vitamin C is required in the synthesis of collagen within the connective tissues, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones, carnitine, conversion of cholesterol to bile acids and enhances iron bioavailability in the human body
- Ascorbic acid is a great antioxidant and helps protect the body against pollutants
- Acerola Cherry contains a rich mix of bioflavonoids and anti-oxidants, a food state vitamin C easily absorbed by the human body
- Combined with Vitamin C this leads to a much more efficient absorption and utilisation of pure Vitamin C
- Rosehips have been traditionally used as a source of vitamin C
- Compared with foods such as oranges there is a much higher concentration of vitamin C - approximately 1,700mg of Vitamin C in 100g of dried rosehip
- Although this is considerably less than the ultimate food state vitamin supplement - Acerola, there are an extensive range of useful nutrients in the rosehips
"Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) - 1000mg Calcium (Carbonate) - 1.97mcg Magnesium (Oxide) - 3mg Rosehip - 5mg Acerola - 5mg "
Mega doses of vitamin C should be avoided in individuals with a history of renal stones due to oxalate formation or hemochromatosis or other diseases related to excessive iron accumulation.
Extremely high dosage of vitamin C may predispose premature infants to hemolytic anemia due to the fragility of their red blood cells.
The need for vitamin C will dramatically increase in times when the body is subjected to trauma, infections, and strenuous exercise, elevated environmental temperatures or if the person is a smoker. Smokers should supplement with another 100 mg per day.
Be careful of taking aspirin and vitamin C together - it may cause stomach irritation.
In post-war Britain vitamin manufacturing was not the thriving industry that it is today. Vitamins and minerals were prescribed, but rarely in enough quantity to do any real good. Sheila Gaiman was a pharmacist at the University College Hospital in London.
In 1965 research emerged showing that a much higher dosage of Vitamin E (300 times more than was widely available) was necessary particularly for those living in higher altitudes.
The concept of the multivitamin was also just coming into the UK, but once again the quantities were much too small. So with Sheila’s knowledge in the field, her husband David Gaiman was able to approach a large pharmaceutical company and negotiate the manufacture of high dosage Vitamin E and a three part multivitamin.
The new vitamin company was called G&G. It originally sold vitamins by mail order, out of the Gaiman’s Sussex home. In 1977 G&G bought its first shop. This was on East Grinstead High Street. It sold unique vitamins and minerals as well as other health food products.
In 1983 G&G began to concentrate on providing nutritional data and research information from around the world to practitioners, nutritionists and clinics in the UK and Europe.
The company quickly established an enviable reputation both for the information and research it was able to supply and the high quality of its own label products. Finally, in 1987 G&G began creating its own label vitamins for the first time, able to do this the way it had wanted; pure, high quality and high strength.
G&G has grown over the years from a cottage business into one of the largest manufacturers of encapsulated vitamin and mineral products in the UK health industry. It supplies companies and clinics in over fifty countries. Along the way G&G has passed milestone after milestone and achieved several firsts in the ever-growing area of nutrition and health. G&G and its founders have been involved in numerous humanitarian causes, including supplying African children with nutritional supplements and implementing detoxification programmes for Chernobyl victims.
Forty-five years after it was founded, G&G is proud to take its lead from the Gaiman family, and the staff of G&G continue to uphold the high standards of decades past as they move into the future.
