WHAT IS IN THE MEDICINE?

This nutritional supplement contains vitamin C and zinc.

Young children are growing rapidly and their immune system may not yet be fully developed. Hence, supplementation with vitamin C and zinc may be beneficial. Vitamin C and zinc together help the body’s natural defense against damaging free radicals (antioxidant effect) and help 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, 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 of children.

Vitamin C and zinc have other important functions particularly during the period of rapid growth.

FUNCTIONS OF VITAMIN C AND ZINC

NUTRIENTS

FUNCTIONS

Vitamin C

  • The body’s major water-soluble antioxidant which acts as first    defense against free radicals in the aqueous (water) phase including blood, plasma and other intracellular and extracellular fluids

  • Forms part of the body’s natural immune   system;  stimulates the activity of antibodies and immune cells which inhibit foreign antigens such as bacteria and viruses that are harmful to the body

Zinc

  • Cofactor of various enzymes involved in cell division and growth
  • Required for the normal development and maintenance of the    immune system; helps regulate the activity of cells involved in    immune function
  • Functions as an antioxidant by being a cofactor of the enzyme    superoxide dismutase which is involved in the removal of harmful    free radicals.
