Swallowing a tablet or capsule is not easy for everyone Niet. Vitals now offers a combined vitamin C+D3 supplement as a delicious gummy in berry flavour. Without any added synthetic sweeteners or sugars! This product, shaped as a bear, is ideally suited for children, who often are very picky eaters. This way, they can ingest without a problem the required daily dose of vitamin D and immunity enhancing vitamin C. This gummy is not just for young kids. Adults or elderly people who experience difficulties swallowing or who would simply prefer a nice tasting gummy over a capsule, may also prefer using this product.
Most supplements on the market that are presented as gummies contain a lot of sugar or synthetic sweeteners. This Vitamin C + D3 Gummies by Vitals does not contain synthetic sweeteners nor added sugars, and yet, the gummy tastes very well. These gummies are sweetened by the natural prebiotic fiber FOS (fructo-oligosacharides) from chicory root. These fibers taste sweet by nature. Another major advantage of these vitamin C+D3 gummies is that they are 100% vegan, which is also uncommon for such products.
The vitamin D3 in this product is not made from sheep's wool or fish liver, but derived from algae. There is also no gelatine present in the gummies. Gelatine is always an animal byproduct.
Vitamin C + D3 Gummies contain an adequate dose of vitamin C and vitamin D3.
Vitamin D is among the most important vitamins for children. It is recommended by the Dutch Health Council that every child up to 4 years needs a daily dosage of 10 micrograms vitamin D every day.
Older children require extra vitamin D as well, because it positively influence the children's immune system. Furthermore vitamin D is needed for healthy bone growth and development in children.
Adults also benefit from taking extra vitamin D (in the superior form of vitamin D3). Apart from maintaining a healthy immune system and strong bones, vitamin D also helps with healthy cell replication, assists in maintaining strong muscles and teeth.
Vitamin C is another essential nutrient for the immune system. Just like vitamin D, it positively influences immunity. But vitamin C has another, less well known function such as maintaining strong bones and healthy cartilage. Furthermore vitamin C can help with fatigue.
Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant, which protects cells and important in collagen synthesis, which keeps the skin supple and firm.

Wound healing: leave a wound exposed or not? On popular assumptions and role of vitaminsSometimes it seems I'm the Überklutz as bad balance and absent mindedness made me crash down on my knee after forgetting to unfold one pedal of the folding bike and trying in vein to unfold it while riding.
Thinking it was only a minor wound it only occurred to me to visit the physician two days later when the wound wouldn't stop bleeding : turns out I should have gone immediately as it actually should have been stitched, for which it was too late some 48 hours later.
The assistant told me to clean the wound with water three times a day and take antibiotics for a week.
Can't remember whether plasters were recommended or not, but by chance, that same night I listened to that very same topic on a Dutch cycling podcast (Tweewielers). Apparently wounds should be covered up and kept moist rather than to let them dry and exposed to air.
Apparently this discovery to keep wounds moist was already known by physicians in traditional medicine around the world such as China Egypt or Greece, with methods of which some are being rediscovered, such as the habit to treat wounds with honey.
Seems I'm not the only one to have a wrong perception on what's best for wound healing. Covering up always seemed superfluous to me. What other popular assumptions are false or true? And what about supplements to take?
