How are we different?

Vitamin C does not occur in nature as an isolated compound. It is always integrated into a rich matrix of various polyphenols and other phytochemicals, which not only support the recycling of vitamin C and exert a synergistic effect through their antioxidant properties but also increase the bioavailability and retention of vitamin C.

Our organic acerola is of the highest calibre in terms of its vitamin C content, flavour and natural quality. We not only source our Malpighia glabra cherries from one of the best cultivation regions in Brazil, which boasts an ideal climate, but also ensure that they are processed according to the highest possible standards in order to preserve their outstanding vitamin C content.

Acerola cherry extracts can also reach a high vitamin C content but, in contrast to our fruit juice powder, do not retain all the valuable phytochemicals and other bioactives contained in the fruit. These compounds are crucial in improving the bioavailability and retention of vitamin C. Our organic acerola powder achieves its naturally high vitamin C content of 30% due to the particularly vitamin C-rich acerola variety used, Malpighia Glabra, and its minimal processing.

Although common practice in the industry, we do not add any ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to our acerola cherry formulation. Moreover, we do not use maltodextrin as a carrier for spray drying processes; rather than spray drying, we have chosen to freeze dry our acerola cherry juice. Freeze drying the fresh juice also means that our organic acerola does not contain any residues of chemical solvents, such as N-hexane or acetone, as could an extract. In addition, our acerola cherries stand out from most acerola on the market due to their organic cultivation.

For the capsule shells we use custom-made HPMC capsules that, unlike most other HPMC and pullulan capsules on the market, are 100% free from controversial additives such as carrageenans and PEG. We then package this product in environmentally friendly amber glass.

Effects

Vitamin C is involved in numerous redox reactions as an antioxidant and cofactor, thus influencing numerous processes in the human body, such as energy metabolism and the immune system, and providing antioxidative protection to cells. It is also involved in the formation of collagen, the structural protein found in skin, cartilage, bones and blood vessels, as well as in the synthesis of hormones.

High concentrations of vitamin C are found naturally in fresh fruits, vegetables and berries such as camu camu, sea buckthorn berry, acerola cherry, rosehip, black currant, kale, parsley, kiwis and citrus fruits, among others.

Organic Acerola

The acerola shrub, whose fruits look similar to European cherries (although they are not related), is endemic to Central and South America. Acerola grows mainly along roadsides and rivers, but also on dry, rocky mountain slopes at altitudes up to 1,600m. The acerola we use in this formulation is sourced from Brazil, where it is gently freeze dried immediately after harvest.

Acerola cherries are known for their exceptionally high vitamin C content (approximately 1,700mg/100g fresh). They are also rich in secondary phytochemicals (flavonoids, anthocyanins) and many other bioactives, which together significantly increase the bioavailability and retention of vitamin C. The gentle freeze-drying process results in an extraordinarily highly concentrated powder (30% vitamin C) and does not require the use of any controversial carriers such as maltodextrin.

The role of vitamin C in the body remains an active area of research. Almost every year, new mechanisms of action are discovered for this fascinating vitamin. The following statements regarding vitamin C are provided by the EU:

Health Benefits of Vitamin C

According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Vitamin C contributes to:

  • The reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Normal mental function
  • The regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E
  • Normal energy metabolism
  • Normal immune system function
  • The normal function of the nervous system
  • Protecting cells against oxidative stress
  • Normal collagen formation for normal blood vessel function
  • Normal collagen formation for normal bone function
  • Normal collagen formation for normal cartilage function
  • Normal collagen formation for normal dental function
  • Normal collagen formation for normal gum function
  • Normal collagen formation for normal skin function
  • Increasing iron absorption
  • Maintaining normal immune system function both during and after intense physical activity

Dosage

Recommended Dosage

Take 3 capsules (200mg vitamin C per capsule) with 200ml water daily.

Daily Requirements

The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends an intake of 100mg vitamin C per day. The recommended daily intake according to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is 80mg.

Vitamin C should be divided into several portions throughout the day, as the body can only absorb a limited amount into its tissues at once before they reach saturation and because blood levels of the vitamin drop relatively soon after ingestion.

Food Supplement

Do not exceed the recommended dose. Food supplements cannot replace a balanced and varied diet. Keep out of reach of children.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.
