Product Review: Cosmo Cee Vitamin C

Monday, March 16, 2015

     I rarely get coughs, colds, and flu. I guess it's because I take vitamin c every day. I take around 500- 1,000 mg of vitamin c alongside with the fruits and vegetables that I eat. There are so many kinds of vitamin c today and sodium ascorbate is gaining popularity because they dubbed it as the "non-acidic" vitamin c. 

     According to vitaminfoundation.org- Sodium ascorbate is a form of vitamin C that has been bound to the mineral salt sodium. As vitamin C, the basic properties and health benefits of sodium ascorbate are virtually identical with ascorbic acid, but the mineral salt buffers, thus lowers the acidity of ascorbic acid. The buffered sodium ascorbate may enter the blood stream more slowly than ascorbic acid when taken orally. So those who are veering away from ascorbic acid because it causes stomach pain, sodium ascorbate is what you need if you think you need an added boost in your vitamin c intake. I've known COSMO Cee for more than a year now and 3 months ago I decided to take this brand because I'm acidic.

Nutrition Information:

Serving Size 1 Capsule
Amount Per Capsule:

Citrus Bioflavonoids 600 mg
       Sodium Ascorbate 100 mg     

Why take citrus bioflavonoids?

     According to the websites I've visited, Bioactive flavonoids, vitamin P, are found in living fruits and vegetables. The various bioflavonoids found in citrus include hesperidin, quercetin, diosmin, naringin, & rutin among others. These phytonutrients are vital for proper absorption of Vitamin C. In fact, studies have proven their ability to enhance and prolong the action of vitamin C.

     Many vitamin C supplements consist of synthetically derived ascorbic acid. This is virtually ineffective. Without the natural citrus bioflavonoids, ascorbic acid is easily oxidized and can actually be harmful to the body. This is why whole food nutrition is so much better than synthetically derived supplements.

Product Review: Cosmo Cee Vitamin C 
8 php per piece
What I like:
  • The product comes in a resealable, easy to open plastic pouch.
  • Cosmo Cee Vitamin C is easy to swallow.
  • This vitamin c doesn't have funky odor or weird smell.
  • No stomach ache, nausea, dizziness or allergic reactions even if I take 2 capsules before or after eating.
  • Contains citrus bioflavonoids known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-aging effect in the body.
  • It's sodium ascorbate so less acidic.
  • I rarely get cough, colds and flu in a year since I take vitamin c on a daily basis. With this brand, I also experience less fatigue and my wounds heal faster.
  • Comes in 2 convenient sizes: 10's (2 pouches that contains 5 pcs. vitamin c each) and 60's (plastic bottle packaging),
  • Can also be bought per piece.
  • There's a batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the plastic pouch.
  • Easily accessible.
What I don't like:
  • None so far.
Will I purchase? Yes, this is one of my daily source of vitamin c aside from natural source from the foods I eat.

Recommendation:
    I give this a 4.75/5 rating. Based on what I've read, this type of vitamin c has more benefits on anti-aging and anti-oxidant plus immune booster too. This type of vitamin c is non-acidic, I will recommend this to those who are complaining of stomach ache when taking ascorbic acid. All in all, I had a great experience with the product.

    1. Hi Sonny,

      That's the dosage indicated on the box. You can take 2 a day for maintenance. I guess the 3 capsules a day is the highest dosage for those with Vitamin C deficiency. Thanks!

    1. Hi,

      Yes you can take it but not the same time. Give interval let's say after 10 minutes or take Myra-E at bedtime while Cosmo Cee at daytime.

  3. I eat a lot of "bad" food, I smoke, and I rarely exercise, if ever. I rarely get coughs, colds, and flu too! I've never taken vitamin supplements religiously so why should I start now?

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      Our body still needs that extra vitamins if we don't get enough from the food that we eat that's why it's called supplement. Maybe you are not experiencing the bad effects now. You're lucky but I'm sure that those bad habits will take a toll on your health in the future. So why should you start taking Vitamin C? To prevent the weakening of your body in the long run. It's still best to get your vitamins from natural sources but if it's not working, vitamin C supplements will do the job.

    1. Hi Jessiegi,

      Yes, pwede naman yung isang dose lang ang 1,000 mg ng Vitamin C kaya lang baka hindi ka pa sanay. Kindly check also with the pharmacist since it's over the counter naman. In my opinion pwede as long as hindi ka acidic.

    1. Hi Brandon,

      Yes, pinapalakas ang immune system natin pag nag-take tayo ng kahit anong brand ng Vitamin C. Pero kung talagang meron ka alergic rhinitis, you need to take meds na para dun hindi lang Vitamin C. Wala ako alam if makakatulong sa dandruff yung Vitamin C eh.
