Almost all the Vitamin C products sold today contain synthesized ascorbic acid and are missing the synergistic co-occurring “chaperone” molecules and constituents — the Vitamin C complex factors. Due to the fact that vitamin C cannot be synthesized by the human body, it is imperative for optimal health to consume foods or supplements that contain Vitamin C.
Total Vitamin C is a unique 100% natural high-potency dietary supplement formulated to provide Vitamin C in a whole food form. Each chewable tablet contains 725 mg of high quality fruits and fruit juices providing 277% of suggested daily value of Vitamin C – or – 166 mg of natural ascorbic acid. These whole food ingredients are processed to retain Vitamin C within a naturally occurring food matrix along with other important co-factors.
Studies confirm that food-derived Vitamin C from fruit has a greater level of bioavailability. Specific research has shown that Vitamin C from food is absorbed significantly better (up to 35% more than synthetic ascorbate), gets absorbed into plasma (50% more than synthetic) and red blood cells (74% more than synthetic), is retained longer by the body and less is excreted in the urine (56% less than synthetic) and still effective in the body after 24 hours.(1)
Total vitamin C does not contain any synthetic ascorbic acid but rather Vitamin C the way Nature makes it.*
