What is POTEN-CEE?

Poten-cee is a 100% Vitamin C. It is the only Vitamin C brand with a wide selection of products for everyone in the family – from infants to seniors – that boosts the immune system, providing protection over time against diseases.

At what age can a child start taking this supplement, and what is the dosage?

Children under 2 years old may already be given Vitamin C drops. A 30 mg to 40 mg dose is the recommended amount for infants and children from birth to 3 years old. The correct dose, though, should still be determined by a health care professional.

When is the best time to take POTEN-CEE? Is there a specific time of day to take this

supplement?

The best time to take POTEN-CEE is with meals – if you take it on an empty stomach, your body won't absorb it fully and, for some people, may even cause gastric irritation.

However, you can always opt to take it whenever it’s most convenient for you. The key is to get into a regular routine - it’s best to take it at the same time every day, so it becomes a habit. In this way, too, you’re less likely to forget to take it.

How much vitamin C do we need everyday?

Studies have shown that at least 500 milligrams of vitamin C are needed each day to get the maximum protective benefits from this nutrient. And, although it is not difficult to incorporate the RDA of vitamin C into your diet, more than the RDA is needed to provide antioxidant protection and other health benefits.

How does POTEN-CEE FORTE differ from the other variants?

All the other Poten-cee tablet variants contain 500 mg of Vitamin C while Poten-cee Forte contains 1000 mg of Vitamin C and has up to 8-hour time-release action.

Can pregnant women take Poten-cee?

Generally, pregnant women can take Vitamin C, like Poten-cee.  However,  it is best that you also consult with your Ob-Gyne doctor especially if you’re on the first trimester of your pregnancy when you may be experiencing nausea and vomiting.
