Vitamin-C (Veesina) is an important constituent of the body for biological oxidation-reduction process. It is essential in the synthesis of collagen and intracellular materials. Besides it has an essential role in the formation of soft bones, maturation of teeth by formation of dentin, conversion of folic acid to folinic acid and for the remedy of injury and wounds. Also it plays an important role in haemoglobin synthesis and in maturation of RBC. Recent studies indicated that the old men who have low ascorbic acid level in blood have higher risk of stroke. So, long term intake of ascorbic acid at a level higher than normal results in a greater decrease in risk of stroke.
Each Veesina tablet contains Ascorbic Acid BP 125 mg and Sodium Ascorbate USP 140.62 mg equivalent to 125 mg of Ascorbic Acid USP.
