When you feel the sniffles coming on, or the fogginess that preludes a head cold, you would think of getting some Vitamin C! Yes, Vitamin C is good for you. But what form of vitamin C is best for your body?
ACEROLA CHERRY VS ASCORBIC ACID?
Acerola cherry powders are natural forms of whole food-based Vitamin C which contain ascorbic acid plus an important complex of other nutritional cofactors, like carotenoids, anthocyanins, rutin and other bioflavonoids. Many health experts believe that these elements must be present for the body to fully absorb the main active ascorbic acid ingredient in a safe manner and to be effective.
Isolated ascorbic acid supplement is a synthetic ascorbic acid which is produced in a laboratory and is almost exclusively derived from corn sugar that has been genetically modified (hence it’s usually cheaper!). Since this ascorbic acid is not Food Grade Vitamin C, it does little but instead taxes your organs before being released through urine.
Studies have also shown that the human body absorbs close to 100% of the vitamin C sourced from whole foods, whilst barely 10% of Vitamin C sourced from synthetic ascorbic acid is actually absorbed i.e. a tablet claiming 1000mg of Vitamin C may deliver far less than 100mg!
REAL VITAMIN C = IMMUNITY
Acerola cherry is most well-known for being extremely rich in Vitamin C that is readily absorbed by the body to enhance the immune system, prevent and fight colds and infections. This cherry also contains bioflavonoids, which assimilates with antioxidants so that they effectively reach and nourish our cells.
Such plentiful concentrations of Vitamin C help the body to fight fatigue, stimulate collagen production, prevent hair loss, improve dental health, heal wounds and burns and reduce the risk of cancer.
