Description Supplement Facts
 

Our Wildcrafted Organic Vitamin C Complex is created to help your immune system flourish with a full spectrum of organic superfoods rich in vitamin C that is loaded with antioxidants.

Why do we use Acerola Cherry? Acerola Cherry is the most potent source of Vitamin C on the planet. A single Acerola Cherry contains 120 times more vitamin C than an orange.

Why do we use Camu Camu? Grown in the rainforest, Camu Camu helps support and healthy and optimally functioning immune system. It also has properties that support your gums, eyes, and skin. Camu Camu has also shown helpful for mood boosting.

Vitamin C is one of the most fragile nutrients, so we use a gentle, low temperature method to dry each and every superfood.

Many people call vitamin C "the master nutrient" because its actions are so extensive and so diverse. Vitamin C is involved in so many biochemical pathways that a deficiency can produce a multitude of disorders. A recent study published in Seminars in Preventive and Alternative Medicine that looked at over 100 studies over 10 years revealed a growing list of benefits of vitamin C.

Did you know: China now manufactures over 90 percent of the Vitamin C consumed in the United States? China is the most polluted nation on the planet (by far), yet most all vitamin companies use nutrients from China to use in their natural products to save money.

Not LifeSource Vitamins!
We will never use any nutrients from China.

"Vitamin C has received a great deal of attention, and with good reason. Higher blood levels of vitamin C may be the ideal nutrition marker for overall health," says study researcher Mark Moyad, MD, MPH, of the University of Michigan. "The more we study vitamin C, the better our understanding of how diverse it is in protecting our health, from cardiovascular, cancer, stroke, eye health [and] immunity to living longer."

"But," Moyad notes, "the ideal dosage may be higher than the recommended dietary allowance."


Vitamin C helps thyroid hormone production and the metabolism of folic acid, tyrosine, and tryptophan, and it stimulates our adrenal function and the release of norepinephrine and epinephrine, which are stress hormones. However, prolonged stress depletes Vitamin C in the adrenals and decreases blood levels.


Ascorbic acid is important in cellular immune functions, where it may be helpful against bacterial, viral, and fungal diseases. At higher amounts, Vitamin C may decrease the production of histamine, thereby reducing allergy potential.*


Still more benefits of vitamin C -
The list of the benefits of vitamin C is a long one.


Vitamin C helps the absorption of iron (particularly the vegetable, or non-heme form), so it is helpful for iron- deficiency anemia. Other conditions that benefit from ascorbic acid, metabolism include diabetes (for insulin production), certain cases of male infertility, as well as arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, cataracts, glaucoma, and musculoskeletal degeneration (mostly by Vitamin C keeping calcium soluble and preventing it from going too high.


Physicians and scientists have long wondered how scurvy - a simple vitamin deficiency - can cause so much to go wrong in the body. The gruesome symptoms include loosened joints, bleeding gums, psychotic disorders, black and blue spots, and broken capillaries, just to name a few which occur before death. Now we are beginning to understand: it is not only what reactions vitamin C is directly involved in, but also what it is indirectly involved in that's important to stay healthy.


Helps with healthy teeth, gums & bones; helps heal wounds, scar tissue, and fractures; prevents scurvy; builds resistance to infection; aids in the prevention and treatment of the common cold; gives strength to blood vessels; aids in the absorption of iron*

Recently, we have begun to understand two additional functions of vitamin C. These functions are reviewed by Dr. Harish Padh at the University of Chicago .

The first new realization involves vitamin C's role as an antioxidant in terms of protecting body components by scavenging free radicals. Now we're finding out that vitamin C is an antioxidant in the sense that it keeps the mineral portion of certain enzymes in their proper reduced electronic state.

Minerals such as iron and copper are key components of hundreds of enzymes. Enzymes control body chemistry, and nearly every type of reaction in the body requires a specific enzyme. Enzymes that depend on iron and copper won't work if these minerals are oxidized to a higher electronic state. What Vitamin C does is to restore this required electronic state and thus rejuvenate oxidized enzymes.


Dr. Padh concludes, "The available data suggest that perhaps the most significant role of ascorbate is as a reductant that, along with other reducing agents minimize damage by oxidative processes. This role includes keeping the iron and copper ions of some enzymes in their required reduced form and in neutralizing harmful oxidants and free radicals."

With this new comprehension, we will be able to understand much more about how vitamin C affects such diverse body functions.


Cell Usage

When you add to this new comprehension that cells can hold and use more Vitamin C than previously thought, all of a sudden we can begin to explain how megavitamin levels of vitamin C work.


The concentration of ascorbic acid in cells could be as high as several millimolar, considerably higher than previous estimates. This applies to human peripheral mononuclear leukocytes, B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes (T-cells).

The report also states, "The new data comes after learning that neutrophils appear to have both low- and high-affinity membrane transporters for ascorbic acid... Having two transport systems of different affinities and capacities give cells the flexibility to respond and adjust to quite different extracellular concentrations of the vitamin."

The problem was that the old way of measuring vitamin C content and uptake of cells was wrong. The analytical methods were lacking speed and precision and were less sensitive. Now we know that cells of the immune system can hold considerably more than once believed. In addition, we now learn that cells have two mechanisms of vitamin C uptake. There must be a reason! This will open the minds of more medical researchers.

Immune Function

As long ago as 1971, the importance of vitamin C to the immune system was known. Drs. Lawrence DeChatelet, Charles McCall, and Robert Cooper reported vitamin C stimulated increased activity of white blood fells. Without copious amounts of vitamin C, engulfment of bacteria by white cells can take place, but they can't break down the bacteria as effectively.

Vitamin C- Facts

  • Vitamin C’s a vitamin that’s water-soluble; crucial on an everyday basis for one’s body.
  • The key micronutrient that boosts up one’s immune system; it can’t be stored within the body similar to the other vitamins that are fat-soluble (like A, E, D, & K).
  • Ascorbic acid’s used as a food preservative as it’s reasonably priced and it doesn’t meddle with the flavor of food that’s processed. This determines adequate delivery of vitamins into one’s body by means of food that’s processed.
  • Raw vegetables and fruits must be consumed as and when possible. They must be refrigerated inside air-tight containers.
  • This vitamin is effortlessly washed out throughout the preparation of food and its storage. Therefore, care must be taken when you are chopping, boiling, and cooking the food in order to evade the aggrandizement of a specific process.
  • The amount of Vitamin C’s extremely high in the majority of foods; therefore processed foodstuff still has the potential to guarantee the daily-recommended delivery of vitamin C.
  • If you cook soda, it destroys Vitamin C because of its alkalinity.


Vitamin C- Functional Benefits

  • Ascorbic acid plays an essential role in collagen synthesis which strengthens blood vessels, bones, and ligaments.
  • It takes steps against the free radicals through its oxidant-defiant properties and as a result aids in preserving and repair of tissues in the body.
  • Essential for healthy teeth and gums.
  • Aids in the emission of the adrenal hormones
  • Augments calcium and iron absorption
  • Efficient antiviral agent
  • Takes steps in improving immunity and fighting against infections
  • Puts off arteriosclerosis
  • Lowers cholesterol
