Vitamin C is an essential nutrient the body can not produce, therefore, it must be replenished daily. Vitamin C has several benefits, including promoting and supporting healthy skin and bones, to form collagen and also increases the absorption of iron from plant-based foods we eat. Vitamin C also adds support to the body’s immune system. “Superior Source” Vitamin C 500 mg, “Sour Cherry Melts”, utilizes sodium ascorbate, which is a truly buffered (non-acidic) form of C that does not contribute to gastric irritation with a high degree of tissue compatibility. NO sugar added; only sweetened with a little stevia.
