Colief Vitamin C Drops
Daily Immune Boost
When it comes to supporting the general health of young children, Vitamin C plays an important role. That’s why Colief have created Colief Vitamin C Drops, to help you support your child’s wellbeing in their earliest years. In addition to supporting the immune system and the absorption of iron, Vitamin C also helps with collagen production, which is needed for the formation of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth. All important for the development of young children.
Suitable for all the family, Colief Vitamin C Drops is a food supplement rich in vitamin C and free from yeast, gluten, corn, starch, wheat, nut, soy and dairy. Easily added to milk or juice it can be taken by children aged one year upwards. Colief Vitamin C Drops is a convenient, sugar-free daily supplement, and is produced without artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives.
Top tips on getting enough vitamin C:
- Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning your body can’t produce it. It’s water-soluble and found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale, and spinach. Try to incorporate these foods into your and your child’s diet.
- Eat your fruit and vegetables raw whenever possible. When you cook them, you strip the food of some of its vital nutrients. Cooking especially affects water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C. Keep a bowl of vitamin-C rich fruit in the house for snacking.
