Growing young bodies need vitamin C. It helps the body absorb calcium and iron, and is essential for development of healthy bones, teeth, gums, cartilage, and blood vessels. Vitamin C helps heal cuts and scrapes, and strengthens the immune system, reducing the risk, severity, and duration of infectious diseases. Vitamin C is also a primary antioxidant that protects cells against oxidative damage and excessive inflammation, and helps reactivate depleted vitamin E.
Treehouse Chewable Vitamin C is the calcium ascorbate form of vitamin C. It contains calcium for building strong bones and teeth and to support normal nerve and muscle function. It also helps blood to clot, and activates enzymes that convert food into energy.

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 increases resistance to infection (Schor, 2004).
Vitamin C plays several important roles in helping the immune system fight colds. 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 infection-fighting white blood cells require adequate vitamin C to function effectively. Since the 1970s, numerous clinical studies have shown that vitamin C reduces the risk, severity, and duration of the common cold (Murray, 1996).
This product contains xylitol, a sweetener made from plant fibre that actually fights dental cavities by reducing the amount of plaque and the harmful acid it produces, and inhibiting the growth of bacteria that cause tooth decay (Tanzer, 1995).
