Natural food components are much more available to the body than the synthetically processed vitamins that are common to most dietary supplements. A chemist may tell you that a synthetic molecule that is identical to a natural molecule will perform identically in the body. In reality, the natural molecule is attached to scores of other molecules that participate in its action within the body.*
The Importance of Vitamin C
Nutritionists believe that ascorbic acid by itself is not vitamin C. It is only ascorbic acid, one component of an entire vitamin C complex. As a result, vitamin C is often misunderstood. Unfortunately, back in the 1930s when Recommended Daily Allowances were established, government scientists decided that vitamin C should be rated according to the amount of ascorbic acid it contains. Ascorbic acid became the marker, ignoring all the other nutritional bonds ascorbic acid is attached to. In nature, ascorbic acid is an antioxidant that preserves and protects the vitamin C complex. To synthesize ascorbic acid without its other components, in our opinion, was a mistake.
The vitamin C complex found in nature consists of enzymes, bioflavonoids and scores of other components that are collectively referred to as the P factor. These P factors serve the body in numerous other ways besides antioxidant activity. The P factors support the vascular system.* They make the vessels tougher and more durable.* They improve the integrity of the capillaries.*
The Importance of Vitamin K
Vitamin K is another part of the vitamin C complex. Other components of the C complex increase the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood.* This is extremely significant as oxygen is probably the one essential nutrient we absolutely cannot live without.
The Importance of Enzymes
As previously mentioned, the natural C complex contains enzymes, the most significant being tyrosinase. It also contains copper which is a cofactor in several enzyme systems in the body. It is a catalyst in the creation of hemoglobin in red blood cells and synergistically assists vitamin C in collagen and elastin formation, which supports the integrity of connective tissue.
Camu Camu Benefits
A complete vitamin C complex has much more nutritional value than synthesized ascorbic acid. Harmonic Innerprize’s Camu Camu All-Natural Vitamin C Complex is the way nature intended vitamin C to be delivered into the body. These camu camu capsules are complimented in a base by two other highly concentrated vitamin C fruits: amla fruit from India and goji berries from Tibet.
