The Master Nutrient - Natural Vitamin C for Enhanced Immunity, Health & Vitality
Formerly Vitamin C Complex
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 protection, a regulator of 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.
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.
Today, many scientific studies have demonstrated vitamin C's important health-enhancing and antioxidant benefits. What many people may not know is that like Dr. Szent-Gyorgi's research, much of this research has been conducted using foods high in vitamin C, not synthetic ascorbic acid supplements. This is a very significant distinction — since many scientists and healthcare providers now emphasize the importance of obtaining all our nutrients from whole nutrient sources such as found in Premier Vitamin C.

Other "Beyond Organic" Vitamin C Nutrients in Quantum Vitamin C Complex
All together, the following super food vitamin C sources combined with powerful, synergistic co-factors and transporters create a phenomenal, all natural vitamin C formula with extraordinary immune, mood balancing and whole body support:
Camu-Camu - The Richest Source of Natural Vitamin C
Camu-camu (Myrciaria dubia) is the name of a bush which grows in the rich forests of Peru. The Camu-camu bush produces an orange-colored fruit that has the highest recorded source of natural vitamin C than any other know plant on the planet. The fruit contains up to 500,000 ppm of natural vitamin C as compared to oranges which provide only about 4,000 ppm. In addition to vitamin C, Camu-camu provides over 30 times more niacin, twice as much riboflavin, 50% more phosphorous and is a significant source of potassium. It contains a full array of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which aid in the absorption of vitamin C, including special phytonutrients: terpenes, alpha-pinene and d-limonene. These "beyond organic" Camu-camu berries are carefully harvested form the Amazon rainforest, then concentrated in a proprietary process that safegaurds their naturally occurring vitamin C, bioflavonoids and other precious, synergistic cofactors.
Camu-camu offers astringent, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, emollient and nutritive properties. Its many health benefits include:
- Superior effect over synthetic vitamin C to strengthen and support the immune system
- Supports the body's defenses against the herpes virus
- Traditionally used by natives against colds and flus
- Help maintain healthy gums, eyes and skin
- Although the amount of vitamin C (per milligram) in Camu-camu appears low compared to synthetically derived vitamin C products, the effects on the human body are incomparable. Because of its natural nutrient symphony including bioflavonoids and other synergists, clinical evidence suggests that it is far more effective, milligram for milligram, than synthetic vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or esterfied vitamin C.
The exclusive Camu-camu berry powder is blended with other "beyond organic" vitamin C nutrients, including South American Acerola Berries (also called Barbados cherries). Acerola is also very rich in vitamin C, second only to Camu-camu. These berries contain the special phytonutrients, furfural, hexadecanoic acid and limonene. Another concentrated source of natural vitamin C is included: Bulgarian Rose Hips, a well-known source of vitamin C.
The super food, young Barley Grass (picked when the shoots are at peak nutrition at 12-14 inches high). Barley Grass is 7 times richer in vitamin C than an equivalent weight of oranges and contains an incredible array of vitamins, including 13 times more beta carotene (a precursor to vitamin A) than carrots, B complex vitamins, niacin, folic acid, choline, pantothenic acid, as well as all known nutrients needed to sustain life. It offers a rich source of minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, and selenium.
Wild-Grown Blue Green Algae
One of nature's superb foundational super foods with a wide range of nutritional factors including natural vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, proteins and amino acids for superior immune support, fighting free radicals, increased energy levels and feeling of well being.
South American, nonhybrid "Beyond Organic" Artichoke Leaf Extract is an important co-factor in this formula that supports healthy urine flow from the kidneys, promotes the flow of bile from the gallbladder, helps cleanse the liver of impurities and its bitter alkaloids assist in stimulating efficient digestion.
Hercium erinaceus (both the whole concentrate and fermented mycelial extract), also called "Lion's Mane," is a type of traditional medicinal mushroom used for centuries which is world famous for its phenomenal immune-promoting factors. This super nutrient is included for its dramatic immune-specific support for the nervous system. Exciting studies by Japanese researchers have isolated nerve growth stimulant factors in this plant that help cause brain neurons to grow and rejuvenate.
South American, nonhybrid "Beyond Organic" Parsley Concentrate is a nutrient powerhouse with high levels of beta carotene, vitamin B12, chlorophyll, calcium and more vitamin C than citrus fruit.
Lycopene from South American, nonhybrid "Beyond Organic" tomato concentrate is a powerful antioxidant with extensive research showing its benefits for the cardiovascular system, prostate, eyes, and the immune system.

i like that this has whole food ingredients but I gave it 4 stars because it contains bitter orange. bitter orange can have the same effects as caffeine. it is used in certain supplements as a replacement for ephedra. I will not be ordering this again. I will look for another whole food vitamin c without the bitter orange.
Great product and fast shipping. It's nice to have real Vitamin C and not ascorbic acid. I use with collagen for healthy skin, hair and nails.
