What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient and antioxidant that can neutralize unstable compounds and help prevent cellular damage throughout the body.
Foods that Contain Vitamin C
Most people get enough Vitamin C through their regular diet, which entails at least one of the below foods:
- Brussels sprouts
- Citrus fruits
Who Needs Vitamin C Supplementation?
While Vitamin C deficiencies are rare, at least in the United States, there are people who struggle to get enough Vitamin C from their diet. People who may be at risk of a Vitamin C deficiency include:
- those who smoke, since cigarette smoke increases the damage free radicals cause, resulting in more of a need for Vitamin C
- older adults
- people with disorders associated with alcohol use
- people with eating disorders
- people who may not get enough of the nutrient through diet due to medical reasons
- people with medical conditions that cause malabsorption or conditions such as kidney disease, which requires hemodialysis
People who think they may have a Vitamin C deficiency can contact their doctor for blood tests which will determine if they need to boost their intake of the nutrient and if supplementation is a viable option for them.
Health Benefits of Vitamin C
Different forms of Vitamin C can target different areas of health, but it all comes down to the ascorbic acid in the nutrient. It can help:
- the body’s collagen production, which is required to create and maintain healthy teeth, gums, skin, bones, blood vessels, joint linings, and more. It also supports wound healing
- reduce plaque instability in atherosclerosis, widen blood vessels, and enhance nitric oxide production
- protect the body from hypertension and heart disease
- minimize severity of allergy symptoms
- iron absorption
Vitamin C and Immune Function
Given the title of this article, we must highlight the very important impact Vitamin C may have on immune system health and why consumers are turning to Vitamin C supplementation for this reason.
The link between Vitamin C and immune health is very direct. The micronutrient supports multiple cellular functions of the body’s adaptive immune system. With antioxidant properties, Vitamin C can help ward off free radical damage thereby decreasing inflammation and promoting a healthy immune response. In fact, Vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s ability to act as a barrier against toxins that threaten to enter the body and disrupt the immune system.
More recent studies show that Vitamin C may decrease the length of cold symptoms, support the production of antibodies, and make bacterial membranes more absorbent to some antibiotics.
Where to Get Your Vitamin C Manufactured
When it comes to manufacturing dietary supplements, you need a partner that can unwaveringly stand by their continuous quality, value, and service. Makers Nutrition is the most awarded company in the nutraceutical industry that covers all three at all times. When it comes to manufacturing gummy vitamins, you need a provider that can follow through and meet your specifications. Say you order a custom gummy that should be red, gluten free, and non-GMO. If your vitamin manufacturer presents you with purple gummies that end up containing gluten and genetically modified ingredients, then you nor your customers will be happy with the result. It could not only cost you customers but also your customers their health if they have certain dietary restrictions for medical reasons.

However, it is also manufactured in the form of powders and gummies.
Vitamin C Gummies
With the rise in gummy supplement popularity, vitamin C gummies might be the product that catapults sales for your vitamin business. In 2020 alone, the global gummy vitamin market size was estimated at USD 1678 million and is on track to reach USD 2286.7 million by the end of 2027, with a CAGR of 4.5% during the 2021-2027 forecast period.

Certifiably Safe Vitamins
Makers Nutrition’s FDA and GMP certificates put us ahead of your current supplement manufacturer or the deceitful vitamin manufacturer gunning for your business.

With FDA registration and GMP compliance, we can promise the safest manufacturing and storing conditions in our state-of-the-art, climate controlled, air filtered, pristine facilities for your well thought out supplements.
As a highly qualified supplement manufacturing partner, we always advise our clients to incorporate suggestions on their product labels to forewarn their customers of any precautions that should be taken before consuming any dietary supplement. This is especially important if
the product, in this case, one that contains Vitamin C, may interact with certain medications your customers take. It could be the best quality, most affordable dietary supplement on the market, but still pose a threat to an individual’s health. That is why it is best to consult a licensed physician prior to consuming any vitamin or supplement.
The secret to supplement business success is a combination of strategic branding, marketing, and partnering with the supplement manufacturer that will serve your goals best. Makers Nutrition is fully equipped with next-generation vitamin manufacturing machinery to churn out the largest (and smallest) orders.
