Perhaps the most well known of the vitamins, Vitamin C is an all round good guy which provides many benefits when increased in diet or through supplements. A powerful friend of other essential nutrients, Vitamin C also helps in the absorption of collagen and iron and assists against cellular aging. This ensures we stay strong, aiding a multitude of key areas like skin health, bones, ligaments and joints. It also encourages the formation of white blood cells.
Many Vitamin C powders and products are made using a synthetic ascorbic acid, derived from GMO corn, meaning more additives and less key substances like bioflavonoids. Not ours! Our supplements are made using pure acerola cherry extract, a native of warm climates like central America and France.
The nature of the vitamin source makes it more easily absorbed by the body and more effective due to its high content of anti-oxidants.
We chose acerola cherry extract due to:
- It’s high concentration – one cherry contains 30-50 times the vitamin C of an orange. A high dosage!
- It’s rich in bioflavonoids and phytonutrients, giving it powerful antioxidant properties. These have been shown to lower blood pressure by relaxing the vessels that carry blood around the body.
- It’s packed with other goodies including magnesium, iron, potassium, all of which come with their own set of positives.
- Being a natural extract, it encourages the absorption of other vitamins and minerals contained within the fruit.
