A truly beneficial Vitamin C product made only with real fruit!
Whole C is the first true whole food, high-potency Vitamin C product ever developed.
This scientifically advanced nutritional supplement drastically exceeds industry standards and contains the highest-quality unprocessed fruits and fruit juices from South American tropical rainforests.
Each delicious Whole C chewable contains 750 milligrams of whole food, yielding 200 milligrams of real Vitamin C.
The whole foods used to make Whole C include the fruits and berries known to be high in Vitamin C content:
Whole C contains no synthetic ingredients and is not processed to separate any of the whole food constituents--meaning it delivers a Vitamin C complex. This "whole food complex" provides the safest, most natural, most nutrient-rich Vitamin C supplement available.
Health-conscious consumers have been taking various forms of Vitamin C supplements for well over 100 years. It was one of the first types of vitamins to be isolated.
Knowledge of the wide-ranging benefits of Vitamin C can be traced back to the 1700s when the British navy discovered that the dreaded disease scurvy could be prevented with the intake of fruit on long ocean voyages.
In the 20th Century Vitamin C has been studied extensively, and has been proven to be critical in supporting the body nutritionally in a number of different ways. It is no longer just the "cold and flu" vitamin, but has now been linked to everything from increased bone density to lower incidence of asthma to fighting cancer. And the list continues to grow!
How does Whole C differ from other Vitamin C products?
When a cold strikes, Vitamin C is usually the first form of ammunition individuals turn to. However, what most people don't know is, the cheap big-box retailer versions of Vitamin C they are taking might not only be useless, but might actually be deadly!
If you look on the label of any inexpensive Vitamin C product on the market today, you will likely see "ascorbic acid" as the main--or only--ingredient. But contrary to what most mega-vitamin sellers want you to believe, ascorbic acid is not a complete Vitamin C.
There are two very profound differences:
FIRST, ascorbic acid is only one isolated part of a complete Vitamin C. A complete vitamin C--as in one created from real foods--also contains other constituents. This long list of constituents include:
*Rutin *Bioflavonoids (aka Vitamin P) *Factor J *Factor K *Factor P *Tyrosinase *Ascorbinogen *Ascorbic acid
This complete Vitamin C "complex" is what you receive when you eat foods high in Vitamin C--or take supplements made from high-Vitamin C foods. Ascorbic acid is important, as long as it is food-based... but so are the other parts.
SECOND, the ascorbic acid provided in cheap vitamins does not come from food. It is made chemically/synthetically in a lab by mixing ingredients that you wouldn't usually associate with health. For example, the most common ingredient for making cheap ascorbic acid is corn syrup!
It is actually quite disturbing: The Vitamin C you buy from a big box retailer is most likely made from sugar!
A couple of studies appear to contradict the lengthy list of other studies demonstrating the wide-ranging benefits of Vitamin C. Understanding what is at the root of these studies can be accomplished by understanding the two points above--food based versus sythetic made.
A widely-publicized study reported at an American Heart Association meeting in San Diego in March, 2000 suggested that "Vitamin C supplements" may actually increase thickening of the arteries--or atherosclerosis.
These findings were then repeated in the media across the country, including in the Los Angeles Times--a publication that, in earlier articles, had touted the benefits of Vitamin C!
The glaring difference in this study versus other studies might be better understood by defining "Vitamin C supplements." A food-based Vitamin C "supplement" and a chemically-made ascorbic acid "supplement" are completely different. The American Heart Association study failed to point this out.
Whether you are taking a Vitamin C complex, or the more limited ascorbic acid, the liklihood of beneficial results is going to be higher if it is made from real food ingredients. It should be obvious that if a company is going to make a "nutritional supplement" from corn syrup (of all things) it probably won't have good results!
A real-food Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant; it assists in collagen formation; it boosts the immune system; and it is necessary in the synthesis of stress hormones. And this is the help you'll get withWhole C!
