Derived from only raw fruits and vegetables, it ensures your body gets vitamin C the way nature intended. It is the safest, most complete, and scientifically advanced vitamin C supplement ever developed.
It contains all four parts of the vitamin C complex: ascorbic acid, rutin, J&K factor, and bioflavonoids. It works as an antioxidant, assists in collagen formation boost to the immune system and helps with the synthesis of stress hormones.
Synthetic vitamin C robs your body of nutrients. Typical chewables contain only ascorbic acid. Your body has to provide the rest in order to use the chewable. Consuming the ascorbic acid form may actually lead to heart disease. Ascorbic acid is nothing more than corn syrup and HCl, and this combination causes your arterial walls to thicken.
If you look at the label of any vitamin C product on the market today, you will most likely see “ascorbic acid” as one of the main ingredients. Contrary to what most health and supplement companies want you to believe, ascorbic acid is NOT vitamin C. Rather, it is only a small fraction of the nutrient. The incomplete form forces the body to use its own reserves to complete it. This actually depletes vitamin C from the body and can cause fatal effects.
Numerous research studies have shown the damaging effects that these synthetic vitamin C supplements have. In one study, cited in a Los Angeles Times article, the research showed that consuming vitamin C supplements in the form of ascorbic acid may actually lead to heart disease.
What the article failed to point out, however, is the true vitamin C supplements are not harmful to your health. On the contrary, in its whole food form, vitamin C is very beneficial as an antioxidant, assisting in collagen formation, boosting the immune system, and is necessary for the synthesis of stress hormones.
People have been taking vitamin C supplements for decades. When a cold strikes, vitamin C is usually the first form of ammunition individuals turn to, and it is truly an excellent tactic. It’s been studied for decades with a dual focus on both treatment and prevention of colds.
Yes, there have been conflicting results but the explanation is simple: studies that used synthetic forms of vitamin C produced negative results and those that studied whole food forms produced overwhelmingly positive results. Want a little more proof? Oranges typically ripen just in time for cold and flu season. Nature provides the foods we should eat at different times to keep us healthy.
Research shows active people supplementing with whole food vitamin C, can expect to cut the risk of getting a cold in half. Based on the meta-analysis of studies on this subject, supplemental vitamin C is able to reduce the duration of a cold by 8-14% in any population, when it is taken as a daily preventative measure, or at the beginning of a cold.
