Vit C Plus (60 Vege Caps)
A natural and non-acidic source of Vitamin C
“Food form” or “food state” simply means that that the product has been specially prepared to be as similar to real food as possible, which in turn means that the body can absorb and use the nutrients more easily.
Our food form vitamin C supplement is a unique whole-food (food-based) source of vitamin C, made up from some of nature’s richest sources of this essential vitamin and antioxidant: Acerola cherries, rosehips, blackcurrants, parsley leaf and elderberries.
It is packed with:
and many other phytonutrients.
Why do our bodies need vitamin C?
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.
Vit C Plus, our food state vitamin C complex combination, is made up of natural food ingredients that are recognised and required by the body for maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation. This natural combination is also one of the few vitamin C products that:
is NOT rapidly excreted from the body
is NOT acidic - some people can't tolerate acidic and citrus-based supplements, which may aggravate certain medical conditions
has a high ratio of utilisation and retention (meaning that a lower daily dose is required)
is suitable for young and old alike
is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
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 C supplement is a great daily addition to your diet in order to help you maintain great health and vitality!
