KIDS Vitamin C Tablets - 300 mg - Important for healthy growth
Vitamin C – Important for healthy growth
Generally known for its positive effect on our immune system. It can be seen as a booster for the defense to protect us from all harmful influences from outside. We are exposed to countless bacteria and viruses every day and are very well able to fight them off (mostly unnoticed) in a healthy state.
Let’s think about our dear little ones in kindergarten, on the playground, at school, at the club etc. The immune system is still developing and the infections, colds, sniffles, sore throats and earaches they have gone through can be seen as a kind of training. Some support for the hard-working immune system is certainly very welcome.
Less known is that vitamin C is also enormously important for healthy teeth, strong gums, strong bones and cartilage. The skin and even the blood vessels depend on normal collagen formation, which takes place anew every day. Vitamin C provides exactly the necessary basis for this process.
Everyone remembers the earlier stories from the Middle Ages when sailors suffered from scurvy. They would get fever, skin bleeding and their teeth would fall out before they often died. Later, the cause was found to be a clear vitamin C deficiency, due to which the body was no longer able to produce enough collagen (see also wikipedia- scurvy).
A balanced diet with all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements present is essential, especially for growing children. Often it is enough to balance the nutrients in the daily meals, but sometimes every little (and big) body also needs some support to regain more well-being and health.
Vitamin C is also able to increase the absorption of iron from our meals. Adolescents are very often diagnosed with a (temporary) iron deficiency; sometimes even with prescribed tablet intake. Vitamin C does a great service in preventing or correcting this widespread deficiency.
By the way, vitamin C is considered harmless even in higher dosages. Since it is a water-soluble vitamin, the excess is simply excreted by the kidneys. That’s why we at Vitaalia recommend taking vitamin C in divided doses throughout the day.
