Vitamin C is one of the most important anti-oxidants and nutrients in the human diet. We believe that for food to be healthy it should be in the form that nature created it. That means no toxic chemicals are to be added, and that vitamins and bioactive compotnents need to be in their entire form, not extracted or isolated.
"Vitamin C is the most important of the vitamins, and is the most difficult to get. It is oxidized so easily that it disappears in storage of citrus fruits and vegetables." Royal Lee, DDS
Luscious Garden organic acerola cherry comes from the largest organic and biodynamic acerola cherry grower in Brazil and is certified organic by Oregon Tilth. The cherries are grown with biodynamic principals to create a healthy ecosystem: which includes seasonal crops, pastures, herbs and a herd of pastured cows for natural fertilizer. Our acerola cherry is not freeze or spray dried which changes both the color, pH and vitamin C levels. Rather ours is processed with a proprietary gentle low heat method. As a result, the natural cherry color and flavor remains unchanged and no vitamin C is lost during the process. The result, an astounding 25,000 mg of only naturally occurring vitamin C per bottle.
Product details: This product does not contain, wheat, soy or dairy. It is tested non-GMO, certified kosher, and certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
Vitamin C content
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make ascorbic acid and must obtain vitamin C from their diet. Vitamin C is thus considered an essential dietary component, it protects against damage caused by free radicals, and is essential for the body to have to make collagen - the flexible protein found in cartilage, tendons, bone and skin.*
¼ teaspoon of Holistic Dental’s Organic Acerola Cherry contains as much vitamin C as four whole oranges without all that unnecessary fruit sugar.
Real vitamin C is known to:
- Help Prevent hair loss
- Promote healthy teeth and gums
- Protect skin and organs against premature aging
- Promote a strong immune system and prevent colds and infections
- Reduce inflammation in the body.
We are talking here about real vitamin C. Not Ascorbic Acid.
Organic Acerola Cherries are an excellent source of Vitamin C
Whole Food Vitamin C vs. Ascorbic Acid
Most Vitamin C supplements on the market are synthetic forms of vitamin C. Only a few companies sell true vitamin C that comes from berries. Synthetic vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid can have a pharmaceutical type effect in the body. But over time it may tax your organs and as you know, much of it gets eliminated through the urine - meaning it is not absorbed.
Study after study shows that natural vitamin C found only in whole foods supports the immune system, is a potent antioxidant, promotes healing, and strengthens capillaries. These benefits are greatly reduce or do not exist with isolated ascorbic acid. Some recent studies suggest that isolated ascorbic acid can actually become a free-radical generator and suppress the immune system.
