Big Friends Chewable C - Tangy Orange
This is a delicious way for children (and adults too) to get their daily
vitamin C. Big Friends Jr. Chewable vitamin C is made from 100% natural
fruit and includes vitamin-C enhancing bioflavonoids as well as
hesperidin and rutin. Vitamin C is necessary to maintaining all collagen
structures, thereby promoting wound repair, strong bones and teeth, and
healthy gums. As a powerful antioxidant it protects the aqueous areas of
the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial
fluid) from free radicals. Vitamin C protects LDL cholesterol from
oxidation and also helps to regenerate vitamin E.
As it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body does not store vitamin C, so
regular supplementation is vital.
Natural Factors includes bioflavonoids in their vitamin C products.
Bioflavonoids (vitamin-like molecules that are found in the peel of
citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables) enhance the activity of
vitamin C and may improve the body's ability to hold and absorb vitamin
C by 35%.
