Natural Vitamin C is certified organic, ethically grown, GMO free Acerola Berries. They are harvested by hand at the peak of their potency in the certified orchards near the Brazilian rainforest. After a journey of only a few minutes the juicy berries are gently processed at low temperatures to preserve the Vitamin C along with the other nourishing nutrients from nature including enzymes, trace minerals, antioxidants, rutin and bioflavonoids.
Natural Vitamin C supports our immunity to “fight the good fight” when the bugs invade. It is used in natural collagen production in the body which is associated with radiant skin, supporting our body in the natural process of healing bumps and grazes, and helps keep our gums healthy. Vitamin C assists the body to absorb iron from food, looks after our blood vessels, and supports healthy energy levels.
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin so storage in the body only lasts a few hours. It is best absorbed when ingested in small doses at regular intervals from a natural source. Bigger doses are not necessarily better, and synthetic Vitamin C can overtax the body in the effort to process and access the nutrients. Lifestream Natural Vitamin C in addition to being available in capsules also comes in powder form which is easy and tasty to add to food and smoothies.
