Introducing Vitamin C  Gummy supplements in Delicious Orange flavor! Nearly 1 in 5 Americans (20%) have inadequate blood levels of vitamin C. This is likely due to a diet low in fruits and vegetables, the primary dietary vitamin C sources.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for human health. It is found in many fruits and vegetables, including citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwi, broccoli, and bell peppers. ASCORBIC ACID is a naturally occurring form of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is the leading vitamin for Immune support and one of the best antioxidants for fighting free radicals.Symptoms of vitamin C deficiency can include fatigue, muscle weakness, joint and muscle aches, and easy bruising. Severe vitamin C deficiency can lead to bleeding gums, skin rash, and joint pain.

Iron and vitamin C have a close relationship in the body, as vitamin C plays an important role in iron absorption from plant-based foods.

Iron is essential for producing hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. Iron is found in two forms: heme iron, which is found in animal-based foods such as meat and poultry, and non-heme iron, which is found in plant-based foods such as beans, lentils, and leafy greens.

Vegetarians may be at increased risk for iron deficiency anemia, as the body less easily absorbs plant-based sources of iron than animal-based sources. Vitamin C can help enhance the absorption of non-heme iron from plant-based foods. When vitamin C is consumed along with plant-based iron, it binds to the iron and helps convert it into a form that is more easily absorbed by the body, which can help prevent iron deficiency anemia.

In addition to its role in iron absorption, vitamin C is also important for producing collagen, a protein essential for healthy skin, bones, veins, and connective tissue.
