Vitamin C or L-ascorbic acid has been around for centuries. Vitamin C is found in hundreds of plant species and many animal species. Although it was use medically for humans early on to prevent scurvy    it is absolutely necessary in everyday life to perform numerous physiological functions in the human body. These functions include the synthesis of collagen to keep our skin youthful and healthy, as well as our minds sharp through neurotransmitter activity. 
Did you know that by the age of 25, one in ten people will already have atherosclerotic plaques forming on their blood vessel walls? Studies report every 1 in 2 people die of a heart attack or stroke; both are diseases of the blood vessels. Most humans rely on their diets for the necessary Vitamin C to provide the structural support needed for blood vessels, but they don’t always get enough. That’s why Vitamin C supplementation is absolutely necessary!
When thinking about Vitamin C most people get the image of an orange almost instantly, but unless you eat or drink orange juice throughout the day, more than likely you are not really getting most of the necessary Vitamin C your body requires. Take a look at the list below to see other sources that give you a full day’s Vitamin C requirement.
|Other than Chestnuts, most nuts do not contain a significant amount of Vitamin C.|
Until recently, Vitamin C was all about “Ascorbic acid or L-ascorbate. How ever in the early 80’s a company came up with “Ester C”, a regular Vitamin C combined with Calcium. It’s suppose to offer an improved absorption rate and is more gentle on the stomach; nevertheless its Vitamin C.
Oh how times have changed. Can you imagine trying to use a computer built back in 1981 in today’s world? Well, vitamins and their delivery to your body have made huge technological improvements as well. Today the newest vitamin C is Mega Vitamin C; it is plant-cell derived making it closer to what nature intended “C” to be. The technology actually started back in the 30’s when scientists, called “Reductionists,” took foods apart to isolate pure nutrients. Their attempts resulted in blends of chemical nutrients and food isolates that did not and do not reflect the complexity of natural foods.
Now, using nature’s model, along with a live-cell process called Bio-Transformation, we have a process in which chemical vitamins & minerals can be changed back into foods, utilizing nature’s own technique.
Mega Vitamin C is a true “food form” of Vitamin C not an isolate or combination blend. It not only provides the good benefits that all Vitamin C products give, but provides better health in many major areas such as stronger bones, better immune protection, mental clarity, digestion, fat conversion and more.
Mega Vitamin C is a highly specialized and patent food fermentation process, which is a 100% natural plant cell grown product that goes through a lengthy fermentation phase and contains no synthetic USP grade vitamins. This fermentation process transforms both the media (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and the nutrients into one integrated whole food, with the nutrients as integral parts of a complex food matrix. This is the way nature intended us to consume nutrients–not as separate bits of purified chemical crystals and powders.
The process produces a Vitamin C that is as different as “Night & Day” from all other’s currently on the market. Every gram of Mega Vitamin C provides:
- 250mg Vitamin C plus approximately
- 100mg Bioflavonoids
- 240mg Amino Acids
- 50mg Lipids, including Phosphatidyl Choline, Phosphatidyl Serine, Omega 3 Fatty Acids,Phytosterols
- 210mg Carbohydrates, Fiber, Glycogen, Oligosaccharides
- 0.1mg Glutathione
- 5mg Beta Glucans
- 20mg RNA/DNA
- 95mg Phytonutrients, Saponins, Minerals, Vitamins, S.O.D., Polyphenols, Plant Flavones, Isoflavones
Remember, this is a total integral polyphenol whole food matrix, not a blend; and no other vitamin C delivers this. So how does your Vitamin C product compare?
Mega Vitamin C is hypoallergenic, highly absorbable and digestible, it contains no yeast proteins and is well tolerated, even by sensitive individuals. Here’s another great side benefit from Mega Vitamin C, it’s “Glucose Free” which makes it an excellent product for those on a diet or glucose intolerant or those with other dietary restrictions.
Mega Vitamin C does not contain any known allergens and is manufactured in a FDA registered OTC, cGMP facility.
Mega Vitamin C capsules are vegetarian friendly and not derived from animal by-products. Also no preservatives were used to make Mega Vitamin C. Each 600mg capsule is plant cellulous based and 100% water-soluble.
