- Each mL syrup (oral drops) contains: Sodium Ascorbate (equivalent to Ascorbic Acid 50 mg) 56.24 mg, Ascorbic Acid 50 mg, Zinc Sulfate Monohydrate (equivalent to elemental Zinc 10 mg) 27.5 mg.
- Sodium Ascorbate is a natural and non-acidic (alkaline) form of Ascorbic Acid that has been buffered (neutralized) with sodium to avoid acidity for persons with sensitive stomachs. It minimizes the negative effects of highly acidic Vitamin C like bloating, gastric and intestinal irritations. It dissolves faster for quicker absorption and stays on the body tissue longer. Like Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbate may be beneficial in general immunity boosting, helping to ward off or prevent colds and flu, assisting the healing of wounds and aiding the body in fighting against chronic and acute infections.
Ascorbic Acid is a water-soluble vitamin essential for the synthesis of collagen and intracellular material. It helps support healthy capillaries, gums, teeth and helps heal wounds, burns and broken tissues. Vitamin C is considered as an antioxidant and is vital for the function of immune system. Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to reduce the severity of symptoms associated with common cold and may be helpful in preventing respiratory Infections for people who experience physical stress.
The mineral Zinc is an essential element of nutrition. It is a constituent of many enzyme systems and is present in all tissues. Zinc salts (generally zinc sulfate) are used as supplements to correct Zinc deficiency. Zinc plays an important role in growth and development, immune response, neurological function and reproduction. Zinc supplementation has been associated with improved motor development in low-birth-weight infants and better neuropsychologic functioning. Clinical studies have found that Zinc, combined with antioxidants, may delay progression of age-related macular degeneration. Significant dietary intake of Zinc has also recently been shown to impede the onset of flu.
