Natural Factors 100% Natural Fruit Chew C 500 mg - This kid-friendly vitamin C is gentle on teeth and is so tasty they think they're getting a treat. Naturally flavored and sweetened, 100% Natural Fruit Chew C is an excellent source of vitamin C for the young and the young at heart.

Vitamin C is a necessary building block for maintaining all collagen structures, promoting wound repair, strong bones and teeth, and healthy gums. As a powerful antioxidant, it protects the aqueous areas of the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from free radicals. Vitamin C protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation and helps regenerate vitamin E.

As it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body can not store vitamin C, making regular supplementation vital. The body's need for vitamin C increases during times of stress because vitamin C participates in the production of vital chemicals such as norepinephrine, which is needed for the "fight or flight" response. Vitamin C also acts as a detoxifier, helping to cleanse the body of toxins, such as cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide, etc.

This healthful product also includes bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are vitamin-like molecules that are found in the peel of citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables. They enhance the activity of vitamin C and may improve the body's ability to hold and absorb vitamin C by 35%.

Ingredients: Each tablet contains: Vitamin C (sodium ascorbate/ascorbic acid) 500 mg

Contraindications
Vitamin C may increase the absorption of aluminum from aluminum-containing antacids such as ALternaGEL, Amphojel, Basaljel, Nephrox, Maalox, and Mylanta. Take vitamin C at least 2 hours before or after taking one of these products.

Certain medicines, such as antibiotics, blood thinners and aspirin may interact with vitamin C. Consult a health care practitioner if you are on any medications. Some interactions may increase the need for vitamin C, other interactions may be negative.

As this product contains citrus bioflavonoids, there is one caution: bioflavonoids are non-toxic so drug interactions are virtually unknown; however, citrus bioflavonoids contain grapefruit flavonoids that may interact with certain medications. The reason that grapefruit is problematic with certain drugs is that it contains high levels of a flavonoid (plant pigment) called naringin. This substance reduces the activity of a group of P450 enzymes known as CYP3A enzymes.

● Your body uses these enzymes to break down certain drugs, such as calcium channel blockers (used in the treatment of high blood pressure), sedatives (for example, midazolam), cyclosporin (an immune suppressant given to people who have received organ transplants) and statins (lipid-lowering drugs). If the drugs are not metabolized, they remain in the body in higher concentrations, increasing the risk of unwanted toxic effects. If taking these drugs, be aware of this effect and consult a health care practitioner.

Recommended Adult Dosage: 1 wafer daily or as directed by a health care practitioner. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 4 weeks.
