Essential ‘wonder’ vitamin, gentle on the stomach
Most supplements offer only the isolated chemical form of Vitamin C. As we learn more about nutrition, nutritionists are beginning to realise that nutrients rarely work in isolation and that each organic component of the whole food is important because many nutrients work in synergy together and food is always more than the sum of individual nutrients. True Food® C is a food-based formula which our digestion is designed to receive. It is easily digested and absorbed for high bioavailability.
The yeast cell walls are gently broken down with enzymes from pineapple and papaya fruit to release the nutrients within each cell.
This final step is important to aid digestion but most important for those who are sensitive to yeasts. The allergen, which causes the problem, is a protein on the cell wall; when broken down, its ability to evoke an allergic response is lost.
Helps replace Vitamin C lost with modern farming methods, storage, cooking and environmental factors, such as pollution, smoking, alcohol, ageing and today’s demanding lifestyle. Vitamin C in oranges, for example, starts to degrade as soon as the fruit is picked.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which acts against age-accelerating free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules, which if left unchecked can severely damage cells), helping to protect eyes and cells.
It supports the immune system and helps with iron absorption from food. It is important for healthy skin, bones, teeth, gums and cartilage, and contributes to collagen generation.
Vitamin C supports a healthy heart and arteries and is necessary for keeping blood vessels healthy. It helps the nervous system work and is needed for normal mental function and for transforming food into energy. The body cannot make or store Vitamin C, so intake is needed daily and throughout the day. Deficiency causes scurvy.
Citrus Bioflavonoids are plant complexes found in citrus fruit, especially the white bitter tasting pith. They support a healthy immune system, help to maintain healthy vein circulation and may help joint health. Flavonoids are known to work synergistically with Vitamin C, especially to support immunity.
