Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, but when it is in an isolated and/or synthetic form, it is quite poorly absorbed and can actually adversely affect our health! According to one human study, 1500 mg (total) of isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C per day can cause iron deficiency and anemia!
Most of the isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C consumed is unused by the body. What's worse, it puts a negative strain on your liver and kidneys to excrete it, and it is quite acid forming in the body! If a vitamin C is an ingredient of a product, it is synthetic and/or isolated. If it is naturally contained in the ingredient(s), it is naturally occurring (as it is in our product)!
Ascorbic Acid and Calcium Ascorbate are synthetic/isolated forms of Vitamin C. "Ester-C" has a few elements added back to an isolated vitamin C molecule and is therefore more absorbable than Ascorbic Acid or Calcium Ascorbate. However, Truly Natural Vitamin CÃÃÂÂÃÂ has all of the naturally occurring elements synergistically present and bonded (including naturally occurring bioflavonoids) because it is 100% food (100% Acerola Cherry Powder).
One and a half teaspoon or more per day. There is no toxicity in any amount. Store at room temperature. The amber glass bottle, metal lid and oxygen absorber preserve nutrients optimally.

I love this product! I mix 1-2 tablespoons with juice of half fresh squeezed lemon and some stevia. It tastes great and is loaded with non-synthetic vitamin C, as well as other naturally occuring bioflavenoids. It's a tasty way to get antioxidants as well as stay hydrated. Children will also find this drink appealing.
