Description of the product

What is in the medicine?
This nutritional supplement contains Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin D3.
Vitamin C and Zinc together help the body's natural defense against damaging free radicals (antioxidant effect)
and boost immune function. Free radicals are highly reactive and unstable chemicals generated during normal
body activities that require oxygen (e.g., respiration, digestion, blood circulation, immune system response,
increased physical activity, etc.) and after exposure to UV light, cigarette smoke and various pollutants. One
major effect of Zinc is on the ability of cells to properly replicate their DNA, which is required for cells to
multiply. Hence, Zinc is needed for normal growth, cell renewal and cell repair. Vitamin C and Zinc also function
as cofactors of enzymes involved in collagen formation and synthesis. Collagen provides strength and elasticity
to the skin and helps promote faster wound healing.
Vitamin D3 is an extremely important vitamin that has powerful effects on several systems throughout the body.
It has many roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and
reduction of inflammation.
What is this medicine used for?
Indicated for the treatment and prevention of Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin D deficiencies as well as maintenance
and support of immune system function.
