- Vitamin C
Do Vitamin Supplements Work?
I take vitamin b12 in tablet form. Can I still take these Gopo Rose-Hip Joint Health Vitamin C?
Vitamins aren’t all equal. B complex vitamins provide certain essential nutrients, while vitamin C provides others. Vitamins are found in food and supplements and perform functions necessary to a variety of systems in the body — and they're vital to maintaining good health.
You can take these two together. The B complex vitamins and vitamin C are water-soluble, which means they're not stored but leave the body through urination and need to be replenished every day.
Do GOPO Rose-Hip Joint Health Vitamin C tablets affect contraception?
When medication works right, it boosts your health or helps you feel better. But a drug can bring on problems if it doesn't mix well with something else you put into your body, like another medication, a certain food, or alcohol. When that happens, it's called a drug interaction. It could make your medication stop working, become less effective, or too strong. It could also trigger side effects. Herbal supplements and Vitamins are not subject to review by the MHRA and their use can often be risky. The MHRA does not apply the same effectiveness and safety studies used for prescription drugs to herbals, dietary supplements, vitamins, and their manufacturers. Therefore interactions aren't often documented. In this case, to the best of our knowledge, no interactions exist between the GOPO Rose-Hip Joint Health Vitamin C you are taking and the prescription drug.
