HOW IT WORKS
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, and it performs many functions involving the immune system and tissue development. It is involved in iron absorption and in the syntheses of enzymes, hormones and proteins. The adrenal glands need large amounts of this nutrient in order to support immunity and help produce energy. Vitamin C is easily washed from the body and needs to be replaced constantly. Without vitamin C, the body cannot make collagen, the substance that holds the body’s cells together and maintains skin integrity.
WHY OUR CHEWABLE VITAMIN C?
Surveys show that nearly HALF of us have trouble swallowing pills or tablets. So a chewable option can save the day. And maybe your health! Decades ago, we created a chewable vitamin C tablet that’s loaded with valuable C plus natural citrus flavors and sweeteners so kids (and adults) have another option. Our Chewable Vitamin C is infused with wild-crafted rose hips grown in the mountains and forests of select eastern European countries, away from pollution, pesticides and radiation. Plus they’re non-GMO certified and Kosher. Our long and trusted partnership with local growers includes providing fair pricing and wages, so families with limited economic opportunity can thrive.
THE STORY BEHIND VITAMIN C (250 MG)
In the 1930s, Hungarian chemist Albert Szent-Györgyi discovered and named ascorbic acid, which literally means “anti-scurvy.” Many sailors had suffered from scurvy on long sea voyages without access to fresh produce. Later, American biochemist and two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling studied scientific literature on vitamin C and became a true advocate for this nutrient. Rose plants grow all over the world in the northern hemisphere. Native North Americans ate rose hips in the wild as a dietary staple. During World War II, when citrus fruit was scarce, Britons gathered rose hips and made them into syrup to nourish children.
