Truly Natural Vitamin C (500 gm) Non- GMO
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, but when it is in an isolated and/or synthetic form, it is quite poorly absorbed and can actually adversely affect our health! According to one human study, 1500 mg (total) of isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C per day can cause iron deficiency and anemia!
Most of the isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C consumed is unused by the body. What's worse, it puts a negative strain on your liver and kidneys to excrete it, and it is quite acid forming in the body! If a vitamin C is an ingredient of a product, it is synthetic and/or isolated. If it is naturally contained in the ingredient(s), it is naturally occurring (as it is in our product)!
Ascorbic Acid and Calcium Ascorbate are synthetic/isolated forms of Vitamin C. "Ester-C" has a few elements added back to an isolated vitamin C molecule and is therefore more absorbable than Ascorbic Acid or Calcium Ascorbate. However, Truly Natural Vitamin C has all of the naturally occurring elements synergistically present and bonded (including naturally occurring bioflavonoids) because it is 100% food (100% Acerola Cherry Powder).

Questions and answers:
Question: Is Acerola Cherry the best source of Vitamin C? How much should I take per day?
- A: The Acerola Tree bears a delicous fruit loaded with Vitamin C. Acerola Cherry is a small bushy schrub or tree mostly grown in tropical climates due to it's poor cold tolerance. One cup of acerola cherries contain, 1,644 mg compared to an orange containing 100mg per orange. Vitamin C plays a vital role in immune health, collagen booster, bone health, brain chemicals involved in moods and a potent antioxidant to fight free radicals, toxins that may cause cellular damage. Healthforce uses glass amber bottles to preserve and provide the highest purity acerola cherry on the market. Truly C is a whole food Vitamin C containing phytonutrients, bioflavanoids, vitamins and minerals. Many synthetic forms of Vitamin C have been effective in killing bacteria effectively but does not differentiate between good and bad bacteria in the gut, wiping out the good bacteria in the gut mandatory for good health. According to the Mayo Clinic to prevent a cold 200 mg and up are taken in some cases much higher doses for a short duration. The RDA of Vitamin C is 70 mg per day, with most experts and clinical trials proving this is not enough to ward off disease. According to an article in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, current RDA levels should be raised from the current 75 mg for woman and 90 mg for men daily to an optimum level that ensures cell and tissue saturation, that poses no risk, but may have significant effects on public health.
