Natural Fruit Chews are great for children and seniors, or anyone who prefers
to chew their vitamin C rather than swallowing tablets or capsules.
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.
The body's need for vitamin C increases during times of stress because vitamin C
participates in the production of vital chemicals such as norepinephrine, needed
for the 'fight or flight' response. Vitamin C also acts as a detoxifier, helping
to cleanse the body of toxins, such as cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide, etc.
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%.
Contains vitamin C-enhancing Bioflavonoids. Take at the first sign of a scratchy
throat or when everyone else around you is sneezing. Keep a bottle in your desk
at the office. Works well as an afternoon pick-me-up.
