Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is very well known for its immune-boosting benefits.
It is undoubtedly the first go-to vitamin during those times we fight a cold. We’ve all loaded up on it when feeling under the weather at some stage in our lives. Naturally, you can find this vitamin in citrus fruits, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, kiwis, berries and broccoli. Many people also use additional supplements to help increase their Vitamin C intake.
But what else is Vitamin C good for?
We all know that brushing teeth is important from an early age; however, many kids don’t particularly like or remember doing it regularly. So it’s parents’ responsibility to teach their children how to brush teeth properly and help make it into a life-long habit.
There are many reasons why brushing teeth is crucial, and the obvious one is to keep healthy teeth and avoid cavities or gum diseases. Teeth play an important role in keeping our jaw straight, help us chew food, talk and provide confidence when we smile or interact with others. It’s needless to say that it is vital for kids to establish the habit of brushing their teeth as early as possible.
We often hear about colostrum and how nutritious and beneficial it is to kids’ immune system.
From the moment children are born, mothers are told about the milky fluid that comes before their breast milk called colostrum, which is full of antibodies essential for their baby’s immune system and growth. But what about colostrum in supplements for children?
Most supplements will include bovine colostrum, which is a milky fluid released from cows’ udders once they’ve given birth. It goes through the process of being pasteurised, dried and then made into a powder that has a light yellow colour.
