Most people don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables and miss out on sufficient quantities of vitamin C in their diet. Our Vitamin C Immunity Boost is a unique whole food source of vitamin C, derived from some of nature’s richest sources of this essential vitamin and antioxidant. Gentle and non-acidic!

Why is Vitamin C so important? 

Vitamin C boosts immunity by being a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight disease and infections. It is water-soluble and quickly lost from your body so a daily intake is vital.

A study of over 11,000 people has shown that Vitamin C can help reduce the duration and severity of colds. A great nutrient to take if you want to get over those cold symptoms as quickly as possible.

Vitamin C works in 5 vital ways to protect you from illness: 

1.  Supports the skin (our first line of defence) and the lining of our organs through the production of collagen.

2.  Supports our immune response by boosting our production of white blood cells to fight infections and then provide protective resistance by boosting our B and T cells, specialised to recognise similar intrusions in the future.

3. Acts as a powerful antioxidant to clear free radical toxin damage in the body.

4. Most complications from serious flu are due to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) by producing a massive state of inflammation which causes difficulty breathing and is the basis of pneumonia. Fortunately, our body can fight this inflammation but it needs powerful antioxidant Vitamin C to do this.

5. Low levels of vitamin C can cause feelings of tiredness and fatigue. When the body is tired it becomes more susceptible to illness and the energy from Vitamin C can help prevent this.

Why is Whole Food Vitamin C important? 

The human body struggles to recognise synthetic substances, and this includes vitamins. It is best able to absorb nutrients from natural whole foods.

Acerola cherry: known as superfruits, due to their excellent nutritional value and exceptionally high vitamin C content. Acerola cherries provide a naturally bio-available and powerful source of vitamin C, which is fully utilised by the body. 1 small acerola cherry contains around 80mg of vitamin C – this is 30 times the amount found in oranges (of the same weight). These cherries possess an amazing array of nutrients, including potent antioxidants. In fact, researchers have identified that it contains 150 nutrients including bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium, and phosphorus.

Blackcurrant: these berries are extraordinarily rich in vitamin C and are actually far superior to navel oranges – containing more than three times as much of this powerful antioxidant. They also contain a good amount of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, phytonutrients, vitamin E and other antioxidants. Blackcurrants are a great energy food and the seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids. They can also help to prevent joint inflammation, eye strain, and urinary infections.

Rosehip: a great source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids. There is as much vitamin C in a cup of rosehip pulp as in 40 oranges! Vitamins A, B1-3, and K are also present. The bioflavonoids, present in the pulp and the rind enhances its absorption rate. Studies show that rosehips may also reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and help sore, achy joints to function better.

Parsley leaf: has many health benefits and a host of nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, and E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid, volatile oils, coumarins, flavonoids, chlorophyll and other powerful antioxidants and phytonutrients. It is also a good source of manganese, calcium, and potassium. Raw parsley and juice are used to cleanse the blood, dissolve the sticky deposits in veins, help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, help break down small kidney stones and gallstones, and as a natural breath freshener and diuretic.

Elderberry: rich in vitamins A and B, flavonoids, and potassium, but they are most notable because they contain more vitamin C than other traditional fruits. Research indicates that they promote disease resistance. They also help lower cholesterol, improve vision, support heart health, improve diabetes symptoms, improve digestion, alleviate muscle aches, relieve arthritis symptoms, and support immunity. In fact, anthocyanins found in elderberries have more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C! These potent antioxidants enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines – proteins that act as “messengers” in the immune system to help regulate immune response.
