"Did you know that a kiwi has two-and-a-half times
the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C- proven
to boost immunity and fight the effects of stress
and aging."

"Higher blood levels of vitamins B, C, D, and E are

according to a new study."

"Research has established a clear link between gum
disease and heart disease. Vitamin C helps heal wounds,
including periodontal pockets. In a study of patients
with periodontitis, simply taking vitamin C improved
gum health. In addition to those with the disease,
researchers noted that smokers, older adults, and
pregnant and lactating women also warrant special
attention with respect to vitamin C needs."
