The majority of vitamin C available on the market is man-made synthesised in the form of ascorbic acid and mineral ascorbates. These may look like vitamin C in their chemical structure, but are missing essential co-factors, which can be found only in the food state products and to which our body has accustomed during our evolution. Our NaturaC supplement is using a combination of natural food ingredients, recognized to be rich in vitamin C and required by the human organism for maximum digestion, absorption and immune operation.

NaturaC ingredients explained

Acerola cherries (25% vitamin C)

Acerola cherries are known as super-fruits given their high content of vitamin C and excellent nutritional value. Unlike the synthetically produced ascorbic acid, sold as vitamin C, natural sources of vitamin C found in the acerola cherries are bio-available and fully utilised by the body. Vitamin C is considered to be of essential help for the growth and repair of cells and for a strong immune system.

It is widely accepted that oranges are one of the greatest source of vitamin C and contain the higher concentration of it. But by way of comparison of vitamin C content, it was established that 1 small acerola cherry contains approximately 80mg of vitamin C, which is proportionally 30 times higher the amount found in oranges. Also, acerola cherries are rich in antioxidants and there have been identified nearly 150 nutritive constituents such as bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium, phosphorus, making acerola cherries one of the most nutritious fruit known to man.

Blackcurrants

Due to their wide array of nutrients, blackcurrants are considered to be super-fruits as well. They are linked to the historical events during the second World War 2 when the fruits rich in vitamins where difficult to source. The blackcurrant berries are recognized as being up to 3 times richer in vitamin C than oranges and also containing a considerable amount of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, phyto-nutrients, vitamin E, anthocyanins (a type of poliphenol) and other antioxidants. Their seeds are rich in unsaturated fats, they are considered to be a great energy food and can also help prevent joint inflammation, eye strain and urinary infections. Also, a recent scientific study outlined the fact that blackcurrants may have a beneficial impact on the body's recovering process after exercise. Also, researchers in New Zealand uncovered a compound found in blackcurrant and which can help with breathing problems and some types of asthma. Also, British researches are conducted to investigate how blackcurrants may provide a solution for slowing down the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

Rosehips

Rosehips are red fruit found on roses and they are known to be a great source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids. It was estimated that there is as much vitamin C in a cup of rosehips as in 40 oranges. There is approximately 1.7g of vitamin C in 100g of dried rosehips. Among other nutrients and minerals they contain bioflavonoids (present in the pulp and the rind of the fruits) which exert a synergistic action to vitamin C improving its absorption rate.

Studies showed that the rosehips may help reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis, sore achy joints, it has an extraordinary antioxidant potential even higher than blueberries and is no stranger to the world of alternative medicine where, due to its high iron and vitamin content is considered to be a super-fruit.

Parsley

Parsley combines a range of many health benefits due to its increased content of nutrients such as vitamins A, C, E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid, volatile oils, coumarins, flavonoids, chlorophyll and other powerful antioxidants and phyto-nutrients. In comparison to any other culinary vegetable, parsley contains the highest concentration of vitamin C, as much as 3 times more vitamin C as found in an orange and the same amount as blackcurrants. It is also an extraordinary iron source (twice as much as spinach), manganese, calcium, potassium. It was also established that long-term consumption of parsley has beneficial effects on maintaining the blood vessels' elasticity, dissolve the sticky deposits in the veins, help break down and preventing small kidney stones and gallstones. Also, it is considered a natural breath fresher and has a diuretic function.

Elderberries

By comparison, we could say that elderberries are on the third place by the concentration of vitamin C from the most known fruits, after the blackcurrants and rosehips. The elderberries are also rich in vitamins A and B, flavonoids, potassium. Some researches and observations indicate that they help in developing a resistance against the most common diseases such as colds, viral infections, upper respiratory conditions (including asthma). Also, elderberries are considered to be beneficial for lowering the cholesterol levels, improving vision, supporting health, improving diabetes symptoms, a good effect on digestion and acting as a laxative and diuretic, helps alleviating muscular aches, relieve arthritis symptoms, supporting the immune system. Also, elderberries are rich in anthocyanins, a potent antioxidant, considered even more powerful than vitamin E or C. Anthocyanins enhance the immune function by boosting the production of cytokines — proteins with an important function in regulating the immune system.
