Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in fresh fruits and vegetables and some organ meats. It provides important antioxidant protection and helps maintain a robust immune system supporting the body's ability to resist bacterial and viral infections. Adequate vitamin C levels also shorten recovery time after infections and helps speed up the wound healing process.
Vitamin C is also essential for the production of collagen, so growing children need plenty of vitamin C in order to build strong connective tissue foundations. The long term consequences of childhood vitamin C defficiency include poor skin integrity (stretch marks, loose or sagging skin, acne, increased scaring, early skin wrinkling, etc) and reduced tendon, ligament and cartilage strength and resilience.
Usage: To support immune health and to help enhance dietary intake of this essential vitamin, particularly during the winter months or when dietary intake from fruit and vegetables is low.
