Vitamin C has a key role in supporting the immune system. It is especially important that children who
are active and growing aren’t deficient in this nutrient.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with many health benefits. Among them are:
- supporting the immune system by assisting white blood cell function, including antibody levels and responses;
- eliminating free radical damage to tissues, organs and cells;
- supporting the production of collagen, the main protein substance that holds the body together in the form of tissues, tendons, cartilage, etc.
