Mega calcium ascorbate is a white powder for oral use. A strong vitamin product for the prevention and treatment of Vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant. Vitamin C needs may be increased in case of oxidative stress, e.g., trauma, burns and major infections. Vitamin C is water-soluble. Childen under the age of two should consult a doctor before taking Vitamin C. Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron and should not be ingested by persons suffering from iron accumulation disorders. Should be avoided by persons suffering from kidneys stones, reduced kidney function or 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. Major concentrations of Vitamin C in the urine may interfere with test strips for urine analysis of glucose and hemoglobin. Always inform staff of Vitamin C supplementation in case of blood or urine sampling. Ascorbic acid delays the oxidative breakdown of dobutamine and may increase its effect (dobutamine monitoring may be required). Major doses of ascorbic acid (100 mg) may reduce the effect of Indinavir (HIV treatment). Vitamin C taken with iron-binding drug Deferoxamin may increase the effect of the latter; avoid taking Vitamin C for the first two weeks of your Deferoxamin treatment. Care must be taken when administering Deferipron and Vitamin C. Major doses of Vitamin C may have an impact on anti-coagulation management. Mega C may be used by pregnant and lactating women. Rare side effects are diarrhea and digestive problems after ingestion of doses of 1+ g. Major doses of Vitamin C may increase urinary oxalate excretion and the risk of calcium oxalate crystallization and kidney damage in calcium stone-forming patients. Sudden discontinuation of Vitamin C supplementation after a period of over-dosing may cause deficiency.
