Jakarta, May 12th, 2022. PT Kalbe Farma Tbk (Kalbe) continues to innovate and educate the importance of consuming vitamin C to strengthen the daily immunity. Even with the Covid-19 pandemic that continues to decrease, the society still requires their body immunity as they keep doing activities. Innovation of vitamin C in several brands and supplies is a contribution by Kalbe to assist the government in provding health for the whole nation.


Vitamin C has a vital role in the body, as it contains a daily dose of anti-oxidant required by humans, as it is confirmed by the Medical Affairs of Kalbe Nutritionals, dr. Adeline Devita.


If we continue to do activities during the pandemic, then we have to prepare our immune system. Therefore, it is important to consume vitamin C from the right source and in the right dosage for our body,” according to the Medical Affairs of Kalbe Nutritionals, dr. Adeline Devita, during a live Instagram of @kalbefarma.tbk.


She furtherly explained, Experts has stated that the lack of vitamin C intakes will decrease the body’s durability, as well as decreasing its metabolism from the optimal state.”


There are currently several forms of vitamin C supplies that are easily available, starting from drinking tablets, lozenges, caplets, capsules, syrups, and injections, with various vitamin C contents in each concoction.


Each vitamin C product has their own advantages, with the same purpose of strengthening the body’s durability. One product is Hi C1000, a sodaless, stomach-friendly beverage with 1000 mg of vitamin C and a healthy sweet flavor because it uses fruit juice and cane sugar.


“It is sodaless and we use buffered vitamin C. These two elements become a message that claims the product as a stomach-friendly beverage, since it does not increase stomach acid. It also does not use any preservatives despite using an HDPE bottle, cause it is produced with the retort technology method,” according to Adelia Carolina Pramasita K. W., the Head of Juice & Vitamin of Hi C1000.


Another vitamin product is H2 Pureway C+, that helps maintaining the body’s durability. It is safe to be consumed for those with stomach disorders, since it contains Pureway C (a less acidic type of vitamin C) that can be quickly absorbed by the body and will remain in it for 24 hours.


“H2 Pureway C+ combines Pureway C  with Vitamin D3, Zinc, Vitamin E, and Selenium. The last of which acts as an anti-oxidant to counter free radicals and decrease the risks of infection. The whole composition will cooperate to maintain the body’s durability in the optimal way,” as stated by the Brand Manager of H2 Health & Happiness, Henrietta Chrissel.


“Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Zinc, Vitamin E, and Selenium are widely known to support the body immunity, which is important during uncertain conditions such as today, because we need nutrient intakes to help us in our activities during the pandemic,” according to the Medical Senior Manager of Kalbe Consumer Health, dr. Helmin Agustina Silalahi.


Both vitamin C products are equally effective in stengthening the body’s durability. The same goes to the vitamin C in the form of injection called the Prove C injection, used during the Kalbe Health Injection, which can accelerate the vitamin C absorption.


The vitamin injection can be given for quick vitamin effects, such as for booster, to cure sickness or a proven vitamin defiency, a contradiction in the body, or food absorption disorders,” as stated by the Medical Senior Manager of Kalbe, dr. Esther Kristiningrum.


Keep in mind that vitamin injections are dangerous, therefore only certified medical personnel who can provide the injection. For this reason, we collaborate with our partners in clinics, hospitals, and medical personnel to provide injection service activities,” according to the DTC Brand Manager of Kalbe, Eric Antonius, S.Farm, Apt., M.M.


Besides the two products, Kalbe also has several other brands that contain vitamin C, including Hi C1000, H2 Health & Happiness Pureway C+, Prove C, XonCe, Hevit, and Blackmores.
