Vitamin C is an extremely important supplement for children with special needs. Vitamin C is most known for its ability to boost the immune system. It has numerous other biological functions as well. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants, providing protection from free radical damage to the eyes, lungs, blood and the immune system. Vitamin C inhibits candida and promotes wound and gut healing. This vitamin is also important in the biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norephinephrine.
New Beginnings’ great tasting chewable Viitamin C is buffered so it is easy on the stomach and tooth enamel. Because a minimum of 1000 mg per day is recommended for children with special needs, 2 or more tablets can be given daily to add extra Vitamin C to any existing supplement regimen. Since Vitamin C is quickly used up in the body, dosing 250 mg multiple times through the day is highly recommended. Many parents use good tasting Vitamin C tablets to reward their children for compliance in taking less desirable supplements.
Suggested Dosage: Take 1-4 tablets daily (in divided doses) depending on the amount of Vitamin C present in other supplement formulas. For example, New Beginnings Antioxidant Formula contains 500 mg of buffered Vitamin C and an additional 2 chewable Vitamin C tablets are recommended to bring Vitamin C levels at least to the 1000 mg level.
