Kirkman's Chewable Vitamin C Tablets are sugar free and naturally flavored with a passion fruit flavor. They contain no artificial colors and are casein and gluten free. The new, improved formula contains stevia.
The vitamin C is derived from a combination of ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate. This combination produces a buffering effect and is easier on the digestive tract than pure vitamin C.
Vitamin C is the most popular vitamin supplement in the United States. The human body does not manufacture its own vitamin C, therefore dietary sources and supplementation must be relied on to prevent deficiency.
The list of health conditions where vitamin C has shown promise is very long and need not be summarized here. Its value in the good health of children is extremely important for the following reasons:
1. Vitamin C supports the immune system
2. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and possesses free radical activity
3. Collagen is the main protein substance in the human body. It literally holds our body together in the form of tissue, tendons cartilage etc. Vitamin C is essential in the production of collagen.
Vitamin C's role in immune system support is one of the key elements which make it very critical for supplementation in children. Vitamin C assists white blood cell function, including antibody levels and responses. It is imperative that growing, active children not be deficient in this nutrient.
