The start of the school year is an exciting time for kids—and for parents! But a return to classes, after-school activities and play dates also means that your child will be exposed to more bacteria and viruses than before. A healthy immune system can help fight off the infections that lurk in their classroom, on the playground and wherever else the new school year takes them.
Vitamin C plays a key role in maintaining a robust immune system; this water-soluble antioxidant is known for improving white blood cell function. And when it comes to kids’ health, vitamin C is a real powerhouse: In addition to its immune-boosting properties, it’s an important factor in the development of bones, teeth and cartilage.
Sisu U-CubesTM Vitamin C gummies are a fun and effective option for immune and overall health support. Packed with vitamin C, these gummies are specially crafted for kids as a daily supplement. Want broad-spectrum support? Try Sisu U-CubesTM Multi, which contain the vitamins and minerals children need daily—such as vitamin D and zinc—in a formula designed specifically for kids. Both U-CubesTM are made with all-natural flavours, sweeteners and colours, and don’t contain high-fructose corn syrup or animal gelatin.
Sisu Kids’ Ester-C Chewables are another great source of all-important vitamin C. Ester-C is a patented form of vitamin C, which is less acidic and easier on the stomach than regular ascorbic acid, making it ideal for kids. Plus, Ester-C is the only form of vitamin C that has been proven to last up to 24 hours in the white blood cells of the immune system.
For an alternative to chewable vitamins, try Sisu Ester-C Kid Stiks, a convenient powder that mixes easily to provide a nourishing electrolyte drink. Kid Stiks contain Ester-C for 24-hour immune support, along with nourishing B vitamins and electrolytes to aid in hydration. Simply mix one non-effervescent Kid Stik with water and you’ve got your child covered—throughout the school year and beyond.
