The Importance of Vitamin C
Ascorbic Acid -vs- Food Based Vitamin CAscorbic acid and Vitamin C are often used in the same breath. While ascorbic acid is Vitamin C, Vitamin C is much more than ascorbic acid. For the human body to full recognize and utilize ascorbic acid there needs to be a host of co-factors. These co-factors are known as bio flavonoids. When you find Vitamin C in nature you find it with an array of co-factors. Ascorbic acid is an isolated form of Vitamin C and is unheard of in nature. When nutrients are isolated it is harder for the body to recognize as food. Because until the dawn of modern supplements the body never received Vitamin C as the isolated form of ascorbic acid. They were always accompanied by flavonoids such as:
- Camu Camu
- Olive Leaf
- Acerola Cherry
- and Blue Green Algae to name a few . . .
Vitamin C is one of our most important dietary nutrients it is water soluble and needs to be obtained from food and supplementation. And, Premier Research Labs has gone to great lengths to design a whole food supplement the provides comprehensive nutrition and anti oxidant protection. So keep your self well armed this winter, keep your Vitamin C intake up by eating plenty of citrus and raw vegetables. And for extra therapeutic benefits supplement with Vitamin C.
