Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, but when it is in an isolated and/or synthetic form, it is poorly absorbed and can actually adversely affect our health.
According to one human study, 1500 mg (total) of isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C per day can cause iron deficiency and anemia.*
Most of the isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C consumed is unused by the body. What's worse is that it puts a negative strain on your liver and kidneys to excrete it, and it is quite acid forming in the body. If vitamin C is an ingredient of a product, it is synthetic and/or isolated. If it is naturally contained in the ingredient(s), it is naturally occurring (as it is in our product). Ascorbic acid and calcium ascorbate are synthetic/isolated forms of vitamin C. For example, "Ester-C" has a few elements added back to an isolated vitamin C molecule and is therefore more absorbable than ascorbic acid or calcium ascorbate. However, Truly Natural™ Vitamin C has all of the naturally occurring elements synergistically present and bonded (including naturally occurring bioflavonoids) because it is 100% food (100% acerola cherry powder).
Truly Natural™ Vitamin C 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.
Other products sometimes give the illusion of being totally or partially whole food products but, in reality, they actually are not.
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.

Serving Size: 5.4 grams (1.5 teaspoons)
Servings per Bottle: Approximately 92
Ingredients: Acerola extract with non-GMO organic maltodextrin (a complex carbohydrate — NOT sugar) as a drying medium
Each 1.5 teaspoon 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 bco-factors including bioflavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients). Naturally buffered. This product 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 part of an entire vitamin C complex! Food sources of the entire vitamin C complex are the only way to get nutrition as nature intended.
EcoFresh Nutrient Lock™. Our dark glass with unique metal lid and oxygen absorber protects 100% of nutrients (creates a vacuum). Glass is recycled/recyclable, does not outgass (see Note below) and is non-toxic to melt down. Plastic bottles and metal/foil pouches (worst and not recyclable) dramatically degrade nutrient levels. Plastic outgasses and is highly toxic to melt down.
Note: All plastic containers (more so in soft plastic) release gases during the aging and degradation of a material. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from plastic negatively affect our health.
