Dig in a Little Deeper
We all know about taking Vitamin C in advance of cold season. But did you know that Vitamin C is one of the truly fundamental building blocks for the healthy development of young bodies? Necessary for the formation of collagen in bones, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels, Vitamin C is also essential for the metabolism of fats, proteins, hormones, and the maintenance of strong bones. (If you're still not convinced, ask any middle schooler to remind you about the Vitamin C deficient, scurvy-suffering sailors on those transatlantic sea voyages centuries ago.)
Now here is where it gets really interesting. The Vitamin C we offer has several secret weapons—Acerola Berries for one. Our Vitamin C isn't created from synthetic ascorbic acid which is commonly derived from GMO corn syrup. No indeed. We found a plant source—Acerola—that is turned into an extract powder and naturally concentrates the Vitamin C contained in the fruit. Acerola may be more easily absorbed in your child's blood plasma than ascorbic acid alone and contains all the natural bioflavonoids to minimize common adverse reactions typical with synthetic Vitamin C such as diarrhea or upset stomach.
And Acerola doesn't just have one powerful antioxidant, it has many. These free-radical scavengers prevent oxidative damage in our bodies which, well...that's just a very good thing. We could go on and on and tell you about the beneficial phytochemicals such as carotenoids and polyphenols contained in our Vitamin C but suffice it to say, those little red berries are cute as can be, chock full of bioavailable, organic Vitamin C and something you'll want on your kitchen windowsill not just during cold season but year round.
And the best secret weapon? Our delicious Children's Chewable Vitamin C formula includes real blueberry, real pineapple and real raspberry, even just a teeny bit of real maple syrup. Now that we think about it, you may need to take it off the kitchen windowsill and hide it on top of the refrigerator.
