Hi, Just wondering if this product contains sugar, and if so how much? Thanks
Do you have any of the 'old formulation'? I find the new one to be cloyingly sweet and I simply can't stand it. The old formulation had a more acidic, less sweet taste, and I actually enjoyed taking my Vitamin C. This is an example (from my perspective) of making a great product worse. I suppose if customers are habituated to extremely sweet product, its logical for you to do this. I regret the change and will be seeking a new supplier. Alas. It was once a terrific product.
Can this product be taken all year? Or how to use this product properly? How many capsules should I take a day and when should I take them?
Is it safe to use while breastfeeding? And does it have to be consumed twice a day? Thanks
Do they contain gluten.
How much glucose is there per tablet? per 2 tablets? Per 200 tablets?

There is no nutritional info on the packet, and it says sweeted by Stevia, however it says it contains Glucose. Kindly elaborate how much exactly.

Thank you!

Will this be suitable for daily use, for long periods of time (5 years)? Or do the additional ingredients make that unadvisable? I am not using this for cold relief.

Hi. The vitamin contains no animal-based product right?
