Vitamin C and Zinc: How It Boosts Your Child’s Immunity

Your child’s developing immune system could benefit from Vitamin C and Zinc, which are both found in Ceelin Plus. But how exactly do these nutrients help strengthen immunity?

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is the body’s major water-soluble antioxidant. This vitamin is used to produce tissue, speed up wound healing, and reduce blood clotting. More importantly, Vitamin C forms part of the body’s natural immune system. It stimulates the activity of antibodies and immune cells that inhibit bacteria and viruses that harm the body.


What is Zinc?

Zinc, on the other hand, is a cofactor of various enzymes involved in cell division and growth. This mineral is required for the normal development of the immune system and helps regulate the activity of cells involved in immune function.

Given what Vitamin C and Zinc can do for the immune system, a deficiency in these nutrients weakens the body’s ability to fight colds, coughs, and other diseases. So when your child’s immune system is refueled with these nutrients, it can effectively fend off germs and viruses that make them ill.
