HealthForce Nutritionals Truly Natural Vitamin C Powder - 500 grams HealthForce Nutritionals Truly Natural Vitamin C Powder is an essential nutrient, but when it is in an isolated and/or synthetic form, it is poorly absorbed and can actually adversely affect health. HealthForce Nutritionals Truly Natural Vitamin C Powder contains naturally occurring vitamin C in a powdered form. It is non-toxic in low or high doses, highly absorbable, and therefore is rarely excreted (expensive waste) through your urine. Each 1.5 teaspoon of HealthForce Nutritionals Truly Natural Vitamin C Powder provides 302 mg of naturally occurring, truly natural, absorbable, non-toxic vitamin C complex from a whole food extract of Acerola Berry (containing naturally occurring co-factors including bioflavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients). Naturally buffered. HealthForce Nutritionals Truly Natural Vitamin C Powder does NOT contain isolated vitamin C! This truly natural Acerola concentrate is not excreted in large amounts in the urine (visible as a yellowish tint), is not highly acidic, is non-toxic, and does not cause nutrient imbalances (does not imbalance iron and copper levels or promote anemia). Vitamin C never occurs as an isolate in nature. It is always a part of an entire vitamin C complex.There are many "Vitamin C with rose hips and acerola" type products out there. Every one of those products we have seen has a very small amount of rose hips and/or acerola (which are plants naturally high in absorbable vitamin C) with a whopping amount of synthetic and/or isolated Vitamin C. Vitamin C mixed with whole foods is not the same as vitamin C contained in whole foods. The superfoods added "on the side" are good for you, but not the main ingredients or the supplement as a whole. Get your vitamin C the way nature truly intended. Most of the isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C consumed is unused by the body.
