The human body struggles to recognise synthetic substances, and this includes vitamins. It is best able to process and assimilate nutrients from natural whole foods. However, as food quality declines due to (for example) mass production, the incidence of multiple micro-nutrient depletion continues to increase, along with associated ailments.
Food form supplements offer a convenient and effective means of topping up on vitamin and mineral intake, because they present nutrients in a form that is as close as possible to the foods where those micro-nutrients naturally occur.
VitaDefence+ Vitamin C is a combination, food state vitamin C supplement, derived from some of nature’s richest sources of this essential vitamin and antioxidant: Acerola cherries, rosehips, blackcurrants, parsley leaf and elderberries.
The natural food ingredients are more easily recognised by the body, facilitating maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation. The vitamin C is retained for longer; not rapidly eliminated.
Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, pectins, essential oils, lycopene, carotenoids, plant sterols, catechins, polyphenolics and many other phyto-nutrients, this vitamin C supplement is gentle and non-acidic. No artificial vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Synthesised vitamin C (which is normally in the form of ascorbic acid and mineral acsorbates) may look like vitamin C in chemical structure, but it is missing all of the natural and essential co-factors found in food state health food products. This vitamin C combination is made up of natural food ingredients, as recognised and required by the body for maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation.
Ideal for long-term usage.
Vitamin C contributes to maintaining the normal function of the immune system. It also contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal psychological function, protection of cells from oxidative stress, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E and increases iron absorption.
