This product is a concentrated food based vitamin C supplement derived from some of nature’s richest sources of this essential vitamin and antioxidant: Acerola cherries, rosehips, blackcurrants, parsley leaf and elderberries.
This vitamin C complex combination supplement is one of the few vitamin C products on the market that:
Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, pectins, essential oils, lycopene, carotenoids, plant sterols, catechins, polyphenolics and many other phyto-nutrients, this product is gentle and non-acidic - no artificial vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
The unique combination of natural, vitamin-rich ingredients provides you with an exceptionally effective, food form vitamin C, along with all of the healthy nutrients that ensure maximum absorption and nutritional utilisation. The selected nutrients work in perfect synergy within the human body. For this reason, they are more effective than synthetic vitamin C supplements, most of which are packed with unwanted fillers, binders, additives and colours. In many cases, these excipients can actually reduce absorption of the active ingredients and are potential allergens.
Our fruit, berry and herb-filled food form vitamin supplement is a great daily addition to your diet in order to help you maintain great health and vitality!
Properties of a food state Vitamin
Vitamin C is essential for growth, repair of cells, a strong immune system and a wide variety of other biological processes. Synthetic or “man-made” vitamin C (in the form of ascorbic acid and mineral acsorbates) may resemble vitamin C in chemical structure, but it is missing all of the essential and natural co-factors found in food state health food products.
“Food form” or “food state” simply means that that a product has been specially prepared to be as similar to its real food ingredients as possible, which in turn means that the body can more easily absorb and use the nutrients they contain.
An incredibly versatile nutrient, vitamin C has had more than a dozen roles attributed to it in relation to immune support alone, but can also support everything from collagen and bone formation to energy production. It is also one of the most powerful antioxidants - substances which may help the body to fight against the harmful effects of free radicals that are produced as part of normal body processes and also as a result of, for example, smoking, environmental pollution, stress, exercise and illness.
