When you're feeling under the weather, what could taste better than a shot of refreshing fruit? Jamieson Laboratories introduces a new chewable product that combines the goodness of vitamin C with the delicious flavours of orange, morello cherry and tropical fruit.
Chewable Vitamin C promotes healthy capillaries, gums and teeth and aids in iron absorption. It helps heal wounds and broken bones and treats anemia — especially iron-deficiency anemia — by increasing the absorption of iron from the intestines.
Vitamin C also plays a role in the formation of collagen in connective tissue and contributes to hemoglobin and red-blood-cell production in bone marrow. By boosting the immune system,Vitamin C prevents many types of viral and bacterial infections and is an ally in the treatment of the common cold.
