Since Unilab just recently launched the new exciting Vitamin C- VitaPops, let us learn the Frequently Asked Questions about the product. Parents especially moms like me would like to know more about the vitamins that we provide to our children so that we can give the proper vitamins consumption and handling.
1. What is VitaPops?
VitaPops is the first & only Vitamin C in pop rocks format in the market that guarantees full protection while ensuring that kids enjoy the experience of taking it:
Vitamin C: protection from sickness
Pop Rocks Format: fizzles and pops inside the mouth for an enjoyable experience
2. How is it packaged?
VitaPops is contained in single-dose sachet packaging so there’s no need to worry about spillage or breakage of bottles. It’s very handy and convenient to bring anywhere.
3. How much is it?
Each sachet costs P10.
4. When will it be available in the market?
It is already available in all leading drugstores nationwide.
5. Is VitaPops sweet like candy?
VitaPops contains just the right amount of sweetness so that kids will enjoy its taste. The best part about its sugar content is that it only contains 1/5 the sugar level found in regular vitamins, which reduces the risk of tooth decay.
6. Is VitaPops strictly for 7 to 12 years old only?
Children as young as four years old can already take and enjoy VitaPops.
7. How often should kids take VitaPops?
Children can take 1-2 sachets per day or as directed by a pediatrician.
8. Can my kids get overdosed with VitaPops?
No, Vitamin C is water soluble so any excessive intake will just be excreted through the urine.
9. How is it different from Ceelin Chewables?
We know the challenge of dealing with 7-12 year olds, we understand the need of moms to continue protecting their kids from sickness and keeping them healthy without the difficulty of giving vitamins/healthy food. We need to reward kids just to take what’s good for them. Finally, we have exactly what we need with with Ceelin Chewables as well as VitaPops — available in fun format options which guarantee full protection. Both are yummy and healthy for kids and are in formats that they love: chewable and pop rocks.
10. Vitamin C in VitaPops comes in which form?
VitaPops is in a non-acidic Sodium Ascorbate formulation. It doesn’t cause stomach irritation even if it is consumed on an empty stomach.
11. What is the shelf life of VitaPops? Because it’s made of granules, don’t they get sticky and solidify after sometime?
VitaPops is best consumed within 2 years from when it was produced. Solidification happens when the product is exposed to humidity and moisture. To prevent this from happening, we recommend keeping VitaPops in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
12. What makes VitaPops pop? Is that safe?
VitaPops is safe to take and is FDA-approved. It pops because when the granules that contain Carbon Dioxide come in contact with moisture, it dissolves and the gas escapes quickly producing a fizzing and popping sound.
13. Why should I give VitaPops to my children? Why should I trust this new product?
Aside from being a vitamin that boosts immunity and that kids enjoy due to its unique and fun formulation, VitaPops comes from the makers of Ceelin, the country’s leading brand of Vitamin C from Unilab. You are assured of affordable, quality healthcare.
14.Can my kids get allergies from VitaPops?
VitaPops is generally safe and does not cause any allergies. But it is still best to consult with your pediatrician.
15. How much Vitamin C can my child get from VitaPops? How does it compare to vegetables, fruits and milk?
1 VitaPops sachet contains 50 mg of Vitamin C and is equivalent to 5 glasses of milk / 28 pieces of calamansi / 1 ½ glasses of freshly squeezed orange.
16. Could vegetables, fruits and milk rich in Vitamin C give my child the necessary amount to ensure full immunity?
