Many ascorbic acid vitamin C ranges are synthesised from corn sugar and although the molecular structure is virtually identical, it is not the form that would be encountered in food. Super natural Vitamin C is the product of the development of botanical research which combined plant extracts which featured high on the ORAC scale and natural vitamin C from certified organic Acerola berry, certified organic Amia and wild crafted Camu-camu extracts resulting in 100% natural vitamin C from plant sources.
As an antioxidant, vitamin C works in aqueous environments at a cellular level. Vitamin C works alongside antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase. It is responsible for regenerating oxidised Vitamin E in the body which is required as a fat soluble antioxidant, therefore potentiating the antioxidant potential of Vitamin E. However, with all these additional antioxidants, vitamin C remains the superior work horse of the antioxidant world. For instance, from a biochemical point of view there is considerable evidence that Vitamin C plays a vital role in many immune mechanisms by enhancing white blood cell function and activity and increasing interferon levels, antibody levels and responses and secretion of thymic hormones. Vitamin C also possesses many biochemical effects similar to interferon, the body’s natural antiviral and anticancer compound.
The Amazon Rain Forrest is under tremendous pressure with approximately 20,000 square miles being clear felled in order to graze cattle. This is destroying one of the most diverse habitats in the world and reducing one of the world’s largest carbon sinks. However wild crafting camu-camu berries is proving more profitable to the Amazonian communities than clearing rainforests and grazing cattle. Gathering these berries will help to preserve their habitat and environment as well as create a sustainable economy based on these people’s traditional practices
