Benefits of Natural Vitamin C

  1. Boosts Immunity: Vitamin C is well-known for its immune-enhancing properties. It stimulates the production of white blood cells and acts as a powerful antioxidant to protect these cells from damaging free radicals [1].
  2. Supports Skin Health: As a potent antioxidant, Vitamin C helps protect the skin from oxidative damage caused by exposure to UV light and environmental pollutants. It also promotes collagen production, a vital protein for maintaining skin elasticity and reducing signs of aging [2].
  3. Promotes Heart Health: Vitamin C aids in the reduction of bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, thus playing a role in heart disease prevention. It also helps maintain the health of blood vessels, which can lower the risk of heart disease [3].
  4. Aids in Iron Absorption: Vitamin C increases the bioavailability of iron from plant-based foods, enhancing its absorption and utilization in the body, which is crucial for the prevention of anemia [4].

Natural Vitamin C, such as that from Acerola Cherries, is not an isolated compound, but comes packed with naturally occurring bioflavonoids, vitamins, and minerals that enhance its absorption and effectiveness. Synthetic Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, lacks these additional nutrients and hence may not offer the same health benefits as its natural counterpart [5].

Beyond being an excellent source of Vitamin C, Acerola Cherries are rich in antioxidants, including anthocyanins and polyphenolics, which offer numerous health benefits such as promoting heart health and reducing the risk of chronic diseases. They are also a great source of Vitamins A, B, and minerals like iron, calcium, and magnesium [6].

Synthetic Vitamin C, primarily ascorbic acid, is produced from genetically modified corn syrup in a series of chemical reactions. Because it lacks the natural co-factors present in food-based Vitamin C, it is not as bioavailable and can put stress on the kidneys and potentially lead to nutrient imbalances [7].

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, meaning that the human body cannot produce it on its own. Thus, daily intake through diet or supplementation is necessary for maintaining overall health. Being a water-soluble vitamin, it cannot be stored in the body for long periods and needs to be consumed regularly. By incorporating Ethical Nutrition's Natural Vitamin C into your daily routine, you can easily meet your vitamin C needs and enjoy the multitude of health benefits it provides [8].
