In need of a boost?
Berocca® Boost contains caffeine which helps improve your alertness and concentration – giving you an additional kick, when needed. Do not exceed 400mg of caffeine per day. Not recommended during pregnancy or for those nursing/breast feeding.
There is no need for concern: the vitamins in Berocca® are at levels above the NRV (Nutrient Reference Values), but they are all below the Upper Safe Levels which were established in 2003 by an expert group who examined information available for dietary vitamins and minerals
The NRV of vitamins is an EU-recommended amount to ensure people are not lacking important nutrition. Some supplements contain levels of vitamins and minerals above the NRV where this nutrient intake is considered safe.
The B vitamins and vitamin C in Berocca® are water-soluble vitamins. This is important for two reasons:
You need them in your diet every day because many are not stored in the body for any length of time
Any B vitamins or vitamin C provided by your diet and Berocca® that exceed your body’s needs are passed out of your system in the urine
Berocca® Performance contains high doses of vitamins C, B6, B9, B12, and it also contains zinc and magnesium, which all have well established essential roles in supporting the optimal functioning of the immune system.
We are not aware of any safety issues specific to any of the Berocca® formulations. The suggested daily intake for Berocca® products is one tablet or sachet per day and it is recommended not to exceed this.
Berocca® Effervescent and Film Coated Tablets are not suitable for people with kidney problems.
Berocca® Boost should not be taken in combination with ephedrine or other stimulants.
Berocca® is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women. This is due to the complex nutritional needs of pregnant and breastfeeding women and Berocca® has not been specifically formulated for use as a pre/post-natal supplement. We recommend that you talk to your GP, midwife or pharmacist about food supplements.
Berocca® effervescent tablets and film-coated tablets do not contain any caffeine.
Berocca® Boost contains guarana, a natural source of caffeine. Caffeine helps improve alertness and concentration.
Total caffeine in one Berocca® Boost effervescent tablet: 75 mg
Guarana extract 222.22 mg, equivalent to 40 mg natural caffeine
There is no NRV for caffeine intake for the general population; however, guidelines suggest that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding limit daily caffeine intake to 200 mg, the equivalent of two cups of instant coffee. It is not recommended for anyone to exceed a daily caffeine intake of 400mg.
Berocca® does not contribute to significantly increased sodium intake levels when used according to on pack instructions. Berocca® recommends taking only one a day.
The sodium in the effervescent tablets comes mainly in the form of sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate which are used to create the well-known “Berocca® fizz”. These ingredients are used in almost all effervescent tablets. Sodium bicarbonate is also commonly used as a raising ingredient in baking and is also known as “baking soda” or “bread soda”.
Salt is classified as sodium chloride. Berocca® effervescent tablets each contain 273–287 mg of sodium. This is equivalent to around 0.7g (682.5-717.5 mg) of salt.
The recommended intake of salt per day for an adult is 6g (6000mg). 75% of the salt that we eat comes from everyday processed foods, such as bread, breakfast cereal and ready meals.
