Description

Vitamin C helps maintain ressistance to colds, mild infection and hayfever. As an important antioxidant, Vitamin C neutralises free radicals.

Vitamin C has long been known as an essential nutrient. Essential because the human body does not manufacture it s own Vitamin C, and because of its vital nutritional role.

Vitamin C has enjoyed the reputation of the key vitamin in the prevention of colds and associated winter infections. Far less universally recognised is this versatile vitamin s effectiveness in dealing with a wide range of conditions from allergies to skin ulcers.

Vitamin C s primary role involves the manufacture and maintenance of connective tissue, in bringing about the normal metabolism of cholesterol, and in the production of cortisol by the adrenal glands. It is biochemically active in the production of collagen for both skin and bones, and in synthesising the hormone noradrenalin that governs pulse rate and blood pressure.

As an antioxidant, Vitamin C is a potent scavenger of free radicals, protecting against tissue damage caused by chemical pollutants, cigarette smoke and environmental toxins.

Thompson s Chewable Vitamin C comes in different doses, the 250mg tablets are suitable for young children whilst the 500mg and 1000mg tablets supply a high potency adult dose.

The addition of lemon bioflavonoids, rosehips and acerola not only aids in the absorption of Vitamin C by the body, but also contributes to the delicious taste, increasing compliance particularly in children and teenagers. Thompson s chewables are flavoured with real orange extract.

Numerous experimental, clinical and population studies show that Vitamin C intake benefits the body by protecting against cancer, boosting immune function, guarding against damage from pollution and cigarette smoke, enhancing wound repair and reducing the risk of cataracts.

High doses of vitamin C can help to decrease the release of inflammatory mediators involved in allergic reactions.
