Blackmores kids vitamin C + zinc gummies is specially formulated for kids' immune health and to assist in maintenance of general well-being. The gummies contain 4 essential nutrients to help support a growing child's immune system.
The mineral zinc and the vitamins A, C and D are essential nutrients, which support a growing child’s immune system and play an important role in maintaining normal immune function.
Vitamin A is an essential, fat soluble vitamin. The skin and cells that line the airways and digestive tract provide the fi rst line of defence for the body. Vitamin A is needed for integrity of these cells which form an important barrier to infection. Vitamin A is also involved in 'regulating the proliferation of immune cells'.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant. It is a water soluble vitamin that is an essential nutrient and required in the diet on a regular basis. Vitamin C supports normal immune function.
Vitamin D receptors have been found in immune cells that are critical to the function and response of the immune system. The European Food Standards Authority (EFSA) has reviewed the evidence on vitamin D in relation to immune health. Based on the evidence presented they concluded that a cause and effect relationship has been established between the dietary intake of vitamin D and contribution to the normal function of the immune system.
Low levels of zinc (in the body) are associated with impaired immune responses and are associated with a reduction in function of most aspects of the immune system. Low zinc levels are also associated with increased susceptibility to infections.
