For children it’s one dropper. You can take it straight from the dropper, but it’s ideal to add to water, juice or a smoothie, and you will taste very little to nothing. It’s that easy!
Immune System Support — Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps with the body’s natural defenses. Antioxidants are molecules that can aid in supporting the immune system by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the body.
Bioactive Form L Ascorbic Acid — Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble form of Vitamin C that is of paramount importance to life. Despite its importance, the body does not manufacture Vitamin C. As a result, Vitamin C is not stored in the body and must be consistently replenished by consuming fresh foods or taking supplements.
Zinc Sulfate — Zinc is essential in maintaining a strong and healthy immune system because today’s environmental toxins and high stress living deplete the body’s zinc stores. When zinc is taken daily it’s known to help boost the immune system. Zinc also supports the endocrine system including the pineal gland, hormone balance, mood level, and metabolic processes.
Pure and Simple Ingredients — Our Vitamin C with Zinc consists of USP non-gmo L-ascorbic acid, USP non-gmo zinc sulfate, USP non-gmo organic vegetable glycerin and purified water. The organic vegetable glycerin we use is derived from palms and has a naturally sweet taste. That’s it! We do not include any sugars, unnecessary flavors or artificial ingredients.
What is the “L” in L-Ascorbic Acid?
Most people know vitamin C for its benefits when fighting the common cold or to treat scurvy. But vitamin C also plays a significant role in maintaining the healthy functioning of the skin – the body’s protective barrier. L-ascorbic acid is one of the two forms of vitamin C found in nature and is the most biologically active, meaning it is the most beneficial. L-ascorbic acid’s potency makes it the preferred form of vitamin C for most skincare products and dietary supplements. L-ascorbic acid’s full name refers to a specific structure of vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is the name of vitamin C in the body and the “ L” in L-ascorbic acid refers to the way the molecule rotates to light.
L-ascorbic acid is the most abundant antioxidant in the body, but humans cannot produce it on their own unlike other mammals. Instead, we extract vitamin C through our diet or supplementation. Vitamin C is involved in many processes within our bodies, so the vitamin C we absorb gets distributed to all cells. However, the skin is often the last organ to receive vitamin C and does not receive it at the concentrations required to affect the skin in any significant way. Since our liquid vitamin C contains only water, vegetable glycerine and and L-ascorbic acid as most topicals do, it can be used on the skin if one wishes to do so.
L-ascorbic acid is found in fruits and vegetables such as oranges and leafy greens. They are a great source of dietary vitamin C. Unfortunately, the amount of vitamin C in these sources is impacted by its freshness. This is partly due to the breakdown of L-ascorbic acid that occurs when it is exposed to air, high temperatures and water. Most balanced diets will provide the body with enough vitamin C to support health. However, when naturally occurring sources aren’t enough, this is why L-ascorbic acid is used in supplemental products.
