Vitamin C
8 Oz. Powder • 226.8 g
This product is a combination of vitamin C, organic acerola cherry extract (PurC®), and orange juice powder. PurC® contains up to 20 times more vitamin C than other fruits and is used to enhance immune activity, slow down the aging process, and promote general wellness.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble organic compound that has numerous biological functions in the body. Acting as an antioxidant, one of vitamin C’s important functions is to protect low-density lipoprotein (LDL) “bad” cholesterol from oxidative damage. Studies seem to confirm that only when LDL is damaged does cholesterol appear to lead to heart disease and vitamin C may be one of the most critical antioxidant protectors of LDL. Vitamin C may also protect against heart disease by promoting the decrease of stiffness in arteries and the tendency of platelets to clump together.

The antioxidant properties of vitamin C are thought to protect smokers, as well as people exposed to second hand smoke, from harmful effects of free radicals.

Vitamin C is needed to make collagen, the “glue” that strengthens many parts of the body, such as muscle and blood vessels. Vitamin C also plays important functions in promoting wound healing and as a natural antihistamine. Vitamin C also aids in the formation of liver bile, helps to fight viruses and to detoxify alcohol and other unwanted substances.

Presently, researchers have shown that vitamin C promotes nitric oxide activity. Nitric oxide is needed for the dilation of blood vessels potentially important in lowering blood pressure and preventing spasm of arteries in the heart that might otherwise lead to heart attacks. Vitamin C has reversed dysfunction of cells lining blood vessels. The normalization of the functioning of these cells may be linked to cardiovascular health.

Evidence indicates that vitamin C levels in the eye decrease with age and that supplementing with vitamin C prevents this decrease possibly leading to a lower risk of developing cataracts. Healthy people have been reported in some, but not all studies to be more likely to take vitamin C and vitamin E supplements than people with cataracts.

Vitamin C has been reported to reduce activity of the enzyme aldose reductase in people. Aldose reductase is the enzyme responsible for accumulation of sorbitol (sugar alcohol) in eyes, nerves, and kidneys of people with diabetes. This accumulation is believed to be responsible for deterioration of these parts of the body associated with diabetes.

Vitamin C may help protect the body against the accumulation and retention of the toxic mineral lead leading to anemia, weakness, kidney, and brain damage.

Acerola cherry is one of the highest natural sources of ascorbic acid, also containing many phytonutrients such as phenolics, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. In the past years, there has been an increased interest in this fruit by the scientific community and nutraceutical industry.

Acerola cherry contains an exorbitant amount of ascorbic acid in the range of 1500 to 4500 mg per 100 g which is considered 50 to 100 times more than that of an orange or lemon. This fruit displays an array of bio-functional properties including anti-aging and anti-oxidant activity.

Orange juice is considered the most common citrus juice consumed by people. Many antioxidant and preventive constituents are present in orange juice including ascorbic acid, flavonoids, carotenoids, terpenoids, and folic acid. Orange juice has shown among other citrus juices the highest content total polyphenols exhibiting free radical scavenging activity.
