Why Natural Vitamin C Is Better
All vitamin C in the form found in normal
supplements is usually made from corn and unfortunately corn has been cross
pollinated with genetically modified corn plants now so I can no longer
guarantee the purity of ascorbic acid vitamin C as the damage is done. Over 90%
of the world's vitamin C is made in China from GM corn. The Vitamin C
as ascorbic acid we sell is listed as non GMO, but we unable to check that it
really is. On the moral grounds the only reason we sell it is because some
people simply can't afford the Super Natural version.
Read through each of the ingredients
especially Camu Camu and learn how this Super Natural Drink could be the most
simple delicious and powerful thing to feed your body with.
The camu berry is best known for its unusually
high vitamin C content. Vitamin C, has many uses for preventing chronic
disease. Natural vitamin C is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage
to the DNA of the cells throughout your body, which in turn can help in the
prevention of cancer and heart disease among other health problems. Vitamin C
also prevents colds and even the flu. It is a massive immune system booster and
an all-around power-packed vitamin but only in its full-spectrum natural form.
There's no food on the planet with a higher concentration of vitamin C than the
camu berry. The orange is generally known for its high vitamin C content, but
oranges often only have around 1,000 ppm of vitamin C. The camu berry can have
concentrations as high as 50,000 ppm or about 2 g of vitamin C per 100 g of
fruit. That means that the camu berry provides 50 times more vitamin C than an
orange on an ounce-for-ounce basis.
One of the best-known uses for vitamin C is in protecting your nervous system.
The nervous system includes your brain, eyes and all the nerves running
throughout your body that tell your heart when to contract, your lungs when to
breathe, and your muscles when to flex it's the electronic system of your body.
When your nervous system is under assault by unhealthy foods or environmental
toxins, it will lead to you having a lower quality of life.
The human body does not manufacture
vitamin C, many other animals manufacture their own vitamin C, but humans do
not; we must get it from dietary sources. Vitamin C is complex; it's not just a
single, isolated chemical in its natural form. It is delivered through
superfruits like camu in combination with several different supporting
phytochemicals which makes the positive effect of vitamin C even more powerful
than when taken alone.
Various research that has been conducted on
camu camu shows that it is antiviral -- it helps kill viruses that could
threaten your immune system and is a powerful protective agent against colds
and the flu.
It is anti-arthritic, so it can help reduce
inflammation, which tends to ease the pain of arthritis. And it's
anti-atherosclerotic, which means it can help prevent atherosclerosis, or the
buildup of plaque in the arteries. Plaque in the arteries leads to serious
heart disease and eventually heart attacks.
Camu is also shown as being
anti-mutagenic, which means it helps prevent the genetic mutation involved in
the creation of cancer tumour's. In fact, if you can prevent DNA mutations in
your body, you will live longer, have fewer chronic diseases, and greatly
reduce your chances of ever being diagnosed with cancer.
One of the most impressive characteristics of camu is its
anti-Parkinson's quality, so if you have Parkinson's disease or if you would
like to protect yourself from Parkinson's disease, the camu berry is one of the
things you should put on your investigation list. Again, it doesn't mean that
this is a cure for Parkinson's disease; but it can certainly be a healthful
nutritional tool that can either reduce the progression or potentially protect
you from ever having it.
Camu camu has been shown to protect the brain from
neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer's. In fact, if
you're interested in anti-ageing, or if you're advancing in years and you want
to make sure you have optimal brain function for the rest of your life, the camu
berry is one of the most important nutritional supplements you can consume.
It is shown to be a protective food for
cataracts. It doesn't mean that camu berry is an all-powerful, magical cure for
every patient suffering from cataracts, but this is a superfruit that certainly
should be investigated by anyone who is suffering from the condition. Camu also
protects against glaucoma, a debilitating disease of the eye.
There is also evidence of the camu berry
having an anti-inflammatory effect. Inflammation not only affects arthritis, it
also affects heart health. In fact, inflammation and the C-reactive proteins
are a hot topic now in medical literature. People are more aware of how
inflammation is a systemic problem, meaning it affects the entire body. Vitamin
C is an excellent anti-inflammatory supplement, and when you get high-density,
full-spectrum vitamin C from camu berries, you get one of the best
anti-inflammatory medicines from the natural world.
Known also as an antidepressant. Depression is often the result of a
suppressed or poorly functioning nervous system. Of course, depression can have
many causes, but the most common is actually a malnourished nervous system. The
camu berry is one of the natural strategies you can use to reverse depression, even
Camu berry is also documented as being anti-gingivitic, which means it helps
fight gingivitis, the gum disease that can affect dental health.
Described as anti-hepatitic, meaning it protects against liver disorders,
including liver disease and liver cancer. This is not a surprising effect,
given that antioxidants are protective of the liver in general. Being a potent
antioxidant, it can help support the liver's efforts in detoxifying many of the
chemicals to which you are exposed. It has even shown a positive effect on
migraine headaches. Many consumers in the Western world suffer from migraines.
Migraines are caused by toxic food and a toxic environment, pure and simple.
When you protect your nervous system against toxic chemicals found in foods and
in the environment, then your incidence of migraines reduces rapidly. Camu camu
is a neuro-protective superfruit, so it can help greatly reduce the incidence
Camu is also shown as being anti-ulcerous, anti-herpes, and hypotensive.
If you're suffering from hypertension or high blood pressure, taking the camu
berry can help naturally lower your blood pressure. The most likely mechanism
for this is that vitamin C combined with the mineral content of the camu berry
helps relax the blood vessels throughout your body. This allows your blood
vessels to be more flexible and to simultaneously reduce your overall blood
Acerola is also known as: Barbados cherry, West
Indian cherry and Cereza. It has its origins in the Yucatan
and is widely distributed throughout the hotter southern climates of the United States like Florida and
as well as the Central and the northern part of South
America. The plant is also
cultivated throughout the Caribbean
and sub-tropical regions. As of current, Brazil is the l
argest mass cultivator of the plant.
Acerola cherry contains nearly as high vitamin C content as Camu camu so
many of the same benefits, but acerola also
contains many other beneficial properties
such as, Vitamin A another important nutrient found in the acerola, yielding as
a bundle of full-sized carrots, or approximately 3400 to 12,500 internationa
l units per 100 grams of fruit. Vitamin A
plays a role in visual health, normal growth and
development, red blood cell production and it protects the immune system.
Additional micronutrients found to a lesser degree in the fruit include several
B-vitamins, calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. Each of which is necessary
in a normal diet. Protein, fibre and fatty acids, important macronutrients of
the diet, are also in the fruit.
Acerola is a small tree or bushy shrub that grows best in tropical type
climates and has poor cold tolerance because of its shallow root systems. Its
leaves are a glossy lush green that varies between light and dark hues and the
flowering portion of the plan blossoms five small pink to white petals. The
actual fruit of the plant, which is used in the manufacture of supplements, is
a bright red or yellow-orange, cherry sized lobe containing small seeds. The
pulp of the fruit offers a delicately sweet aroma and taste but is acidic.
If you're diabetic, then the acerola berry is very good for you as it can
reduce the blood sugar to reasonable levels. Acerola also contain polyphenols
which can help greatly in reducing blood sugar.One more interesting use of
acerola is for strengthening teeth and bones. Acerola berries have
a few vitamins which help greatly in protecting and rebuilding teeth and bones.
This is especially helpful if you're suffering from brittle bones and chipped
teeth. Most skin products that are being made to treat conditions such as
melasma contain acerola extracts in them. You can maintain acidity levels in
your body with the help of acerola berries and this also aids the process of

In just about any part of the world you will find
people enjoying the wonderful flavor and the health benefits of strawberries.
The red, fragrant, ground hugging strawberry plant has been wide
For all of that time the wild species
have been highly prised and recognised not only
for their sweet flavor but
for various health benefits of strawberries.
Strawberry's are not only delicious but are also nutritious as well
level of vitamin C, and as we know from reading above the benefits of
C are quite amazing, but the humble strawberry doesn't just bring
great taste to this drink it also adds other
great properties such as being rich
in iodine, which is very helpful for proper
functioning of the brain and nervous
system. Some of the members of the vitamin-B
family present in strawberries
also strengthen the cardiac muscles and help
better functioning of the heart.
Strawberries also help battle arthritis and
gout, the degeneration of muscles
and tissues, drying up of the fluid which help
mobility of the joints and accumulation of toxic substances and acids such as
uric acid in the body are some of the ill effects of free radicals present in
our body, which are primarily responsible for arthritis and gout. Strawberries,
with their team of anti oxidants and detoxifiers, can effectively help push
away such health hazards.
Taking fruit based Vitamin C:
Remember that this Vitamin C is more powerful
than Vitamin C as ascorbic acid.
The optimum intake is likely to be in the
region of 1,000 mg (1 gram) to 10,000 mg (10 grams) per day, If you are in the
grips of cardiovascular disease, an infectious or immune system disease, or
cancer the ideal level may be much higher. If you drink excessive amounts of
alcohol, live in a polluted city, have a stressful lifestyle, take drugs
including aspirin, or smoke, your optimal intake will again be raised. An
intake of 200 to 300 mg of vitamin C per day is required to raise the average
smoker's vitamin C level to that of a non-smoker. An intake of around 50 mg per
cigarette probably affords maximum protection.
Albert Szent Gyorgi, who isolated vitamin C in 1928, recommends 1 gram daily.
Dr. Michael Colgan takes 5 grams daily. Dr. Linus Pauling takes 10 to 18 grams
Patrick Holford - The UK's
leading Nutritionist says "Research shows that just 500mg of Vitamin
C daily can cut death rates by 50%" and he takes 5 grams daily.
I make smoothies everyday and through in around 5-8 grams of the Vitamin C mix
depending on the taste i am going for that day.
With our drink we believe a good start is 3 grams daily , increasing depending
on your needs or as your health practitioner recommends.
