|Vitamin C: Nutrient Extraordinaire.
Premier Research Labs Vitamin C is truly a nutrient extraordinaire. Research abounds to show that vitamin C is a key vital substance required for many fundamental processes in the body, including the biosynthesis of collagen, the activation of the fat-transporting molecule carnitine; it assists in the manufacture of the hormones adrenaline and cortisone; it acts as an electron transporter in many enzymatic reactions; it helps protect the integrity of blood vessels; it is a promoter of healthy gums, an important factor in radiation regulation, maintains healthy cholesterol levels, a free radical detoxifier and an immune-specific, boosting agent.
|But Does Your Vitamin C Product Contain Real Vitamin C?
Probably not! About 99% of all vitamin C products on the market today are synthetically made ascorbic acid – or variations such as calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate or potassium ascorbate. Despite marketing claims, these laboratory-produced powders are not natural vitamin C — and far from it. They are chemically synthesized molecules manufactured in a test tube and are often made from genetically modified corn sugar. These synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of life-supporting nutrient complexes found in real natural vitamin C.
|Test-Tube Vitamin C: No Thanks.
The proven health benefits associated with vitamin C are actually created by the entire, intricate, complex symphony of phytonutrients and supportive co-factors naturally found only in whole nutrient sources, not in isolated, synthesized molecules. In short, test-tube vitamin C simply cannot recreate the magnificent synergy of a whole-nutrient vitamin C complex.
|Vastly Superior Benefits.
In the 1930’s, Hungarian biochemist Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi searched for the elusive nutrient factor that prevented scurvy and thus won the Nobel Prize in medicine for identifying vitamin C and its many health benefits. Although he successfully isolated the structure of the ascorbic acid molecule in his research, his studies clearly demonstrated the vastly superior benefits of consuming foods rich in natural vitamin C rather than the synthetic version. For this reason, even though he was the discoverer of ascorbic acid, he did not recommend its use! In fact, Dr. Szent-Gyorgi affirmed repeatedly that the best results occurred when people consumed vitamin C in its natural form as present in whole foods.
|Don’t Go Backwards.
Worse yet, taking synthetic ascorbic acid can make the body more acidic over time and steals from the body’s calcium reserves, since the body must release calcium to neutralize the synthetic ascorbic acid. Higher acidity is associated with poorer health. Over time, taking synthetic ascorbic acid products may have negative effects on your health. Don’t be fooled by products that advertise ascorbic acid along with rose hips or acerola — it usually contains only token amounts of the “real” nutrients — you’re still getting mostly synthetic vitamin C.
Many people have stopped using large dosages of synthetic vitamin C because they find that just 2 to 4 Vcaps daily of Premier-Rx C Complex gives them more effective support of their immune system, plus it is naturally energizing and mood-lifting.* It has the additional benefit of being non-irritating to sensitive stomachs and bladders (unlike synthetic vitamin C).
Health care practitioners report the extraordinary nutritional benefits for supporting the body’s natural defense against internal invaders using only 2 to 3 Vcaps daily of Premier-Rx C Complex which previously they had only achieved with mega doses of esterified vitamin C or mega doses of L-lysine.*
