Product summary

VitC Complex is a combination, food state vitamin C supplement, derived from some of nature’s richest sources of this essential vitamin and antioxidant: Acerola cherries, rosehips, blackcurrants, parsley leaf and elderberries.

The natural food ingredients are more easily recognised by the body, facilitating maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation. The vitamin C is retained for longer; not rapidly eliminated.

Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, pectins, essential oils, lycopene, carotenoids, plant sterols, catechins, polyphenolics and many other phyto-nutrients, this vitamin C supplement is gentle and non-acidic. No artificial vitamin C (ascorbic acid).

More information:

The fruit and herbal ingredients used in this food form vitamin C formulation also contain a range of other vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, pectins, essential oils, lycopene, carotenoids, plant sterols, catechins, polyphenolics and phytonutrients.

For example, as well as vitamin C: Acerola cherries also contain vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin; rosehips contain calcium, iron, selenium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, silicon and zinc; blackcurrants contain anthocyanins, flavonoids and polyphenolics; parsley leaf contains volatile oil components (including myristicin, limonene, eugenol and alpha-thujene) and flavonoids (including apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol and luteolin); and elderberries contain flavonoids such as isorhamnetin, kaempferol and quercetin. And many more…

NaturaC is gentle and non-acidic – no artificial vitamin C (ascorbic acid). This is noteworthy because some people can’t tolerate acidic and citrus-based supplements, which may aggravate certain medical conditions.

What’s more, many synthetic vitamin C supplements (which tend to contain ascorbic acid), are packed with unwanted fillers, binders, additives and colours. In many cases, these excipients can actually reduce absorption of the active ingredients and are potential allergens.

Our fruit, berry and herb-filled food form vitamin C supplement contains none of these added “nasties” and is therefore a great addition to your daily balanced diet.

Immunity

Vitamin C contributes to maintaining the normal function of the immune system. It also contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal psychological function, protection of cells from oxidative stress, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E and increases iron absorption.

What does “food form” mean?

“Food form” or “food state” simply means that that a product has been specially prepared to be as similar to its real food ingredients as possible (with minimal processing), to help the body to recognise and assimilate the nutrients.

We ship orders every day from Monday to Friday (except for Public and Bank Holidays etc). Most orders placed before 10am Monday – Friday will be shipped the same day; all other orders will usually be shipped within 2 business days of the order being placed.

Please note: even if you elect to pay extra for 1st class post, this does not guarantee that your order will be shipped the same day or the next day. Also see the note below regarding Royal Mail delivery times.

Parcel sizes: most orders will NOT fit through a letter box slot. If you are not in to receive your order, please leave a note on your door for the postman to leave it with a neighbour or look for the Royal Mail “Not able to deliver” note and contact them ASAP for re-delivery, or the parcel will be sent back to us after 5 business days.

Delivery times

Royal Mail
For UK orders, Royal Mail states that 1st class Mail is delivered between 1 and 2 business days and 2nd class Mail (including 2nd class Recorded Delivery) is delivered within 5 – 10 business days (see the Royal Mail website for full details).
Delivery to destinations outside the UK vary from 10 to 19 business days. Please see the Royal Mail website for details. Parcels may also be held up by customs.

Courier
If we decide to ship your UK order by courier (Interlink) because of its weight or value, you will receive a notification email and then a text message approximately 1 hour prior to delivery (if you provided the correct email address and mobile phone number). Delivery by courier normally takes place the next day.

Please note: We post orders as quickly as possible. However, the delivery times mentioned above are NOT guaranteed – they are just approximate times provided by the mail carriers. Once we pass an item to a mail delivery service company, we cannot control delays and delivery times. Whilst we are sorry for any inconvenience caused by delivery delays, we cannot take any responsibility for them – though we will, of course, do everything we can to help you get your order in the quickest possible time.

Order status

You will receive two emails after you have placed your order and provided us with a valid email address:

  1. The first confirms that your order has been received and will contain your receipt; this email should arrive within approximately 24 hours.
  2. The second confirms that your order has been posted; this email should arrive within approximately 1 business day following authorisation of your credit card and verification of your information.
  3. If you do not receive our emails, please look in your spam or junk folders. If they are not found in there, you will have typed in an incorrect email address when completing the order form email address field.

Late packages

If your order appears to be late, please remember:

  • courier deliveries (which will be through Interlink) only take place on business days (i.e. Monday – Friday, excluding holidays).
  • delays to deliveries by Royal Mail do occur and these are beyond our control. Please be patient, as usually your item will arrive within a few days of dispatch. Always check your post box for an “unable to deliver” note, as most packages will be unable to fit in a standard post box and if a signature is required, they will not leave the item.

Please note: In some cases, Royal Mail do not leave an “unable to deliver” note. If your delivery has not arrived after 10 working days and you have not had an “unable to deliver” note left in your letter box, contact your local post office or Royal Mail collection depot immediately, as it will usually be awaiting collection there. If parcels are not collected within 7 working days, they are usually posted back to us. However, it takes around 30 days for us to receive returned parcels. In these circumstances, a delivery charge of €4.99 will apply to any orders that are required to be re-shipped to you.

Delayed, lost or confiscated mail

Please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

The time period before Royal Mail will accept that an item has been lost is 19 business days from the delivery due date for UK mail, and approximately 29 days for mail posted to anywhere outside the UK.

When placing an order with us, please take care to provide your full and correct address. In the event of lost mail due to incorrect address details being provided, we will not be able to refund your shipping costs (if applicable). You will also be required to pay for a share of the re-stocking fee, which will be 25% of the amount you paid for the item(s) in your order.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are allowed to import any supplement you wish to purchase from the UK into your own country. If Customs officials in your country return your order to us, either because you did not have permission to import such supplements, or because such supplements are banned in your country, we will refund your order less the shipping costs incurred by us. Please check with your country’s Customs officials to make sure that you are permitted to import any supplement before purchasing.

Important notice: Customs, in rare instances, may confiscate shipments containing locally prohibited products from entering into their respective countries. In the unlikely event that your shipment is confiscated, we accept no financial responsibility, and therefore will not offer any refunds for your order.
