Treehouse Vitamin C Gummies help ensure your children get daily amounts of this essential vitamin. Vitamin C cannot be stored by the body; it can only be obtained through diet. Vitamin C helps the body absorb calcium and iron, and is essential for the development of healthy bones, teeth, gums, cartilage, and blood vessels.* Vitamin C is important for wound healing, and supports a healthy immune system.* Vitamin C is also a primary antioxidant that protects cells against oxidative damage, and helps reactivate depleted vitamin E.*

Made especially for kids, Treehouse Vitamin C Gummies contain 125 mg of vitamin C per gummy. They are sweetened with cane sugar and organic tapioca syrup. They contain no high fructose corn syrup (which is used in some other gummy brands) or aspartame, plus they are made with non-GMO ingredients. Parents will be happy to know that Treehouse Gummies are free from hydrogenated oils and common food allergens such as gluten, wheat, and dairy.

This vegetarian formula is gelatin-free and made with a natural pectin base. The delicious, natural fruit flavors and shapes of Treehouse characters make these gummies a great choice for kids 4–8 years old.

Research

Research in brief

Vitamin C is essential for the physical and mental growth of children. It strengthens bones, connective tissue, muscles, and skin; speeds the healing of cuts and scrapes, and supports the immune system (Schor, 2004).

Vitamin C plays several important roles in supporting the immune system. Interferon is a type of protein that helps prevent viruses from entering healthy cells. Vitamin C elevates the body’s interferon level (Iqbal et al., 2004).

There is evidence that immune system supporting white blood cells require adequate vitamin C to function effectively. Since the 1970s, numerous clinical studies have shown that vitamin C supports immune function (Murray, 1996).
