Acerola Cherry Known as a Super Fruit due to its exceptional nutritional values and very high natural source of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for the growth and repair of cells and for a strong immune system.
These little red-colored fruits possess an amazing array of vitamin and antioxidant power. Acerola cherry provides a naturally bio-available and powerful source of Vitamin C which is fully utilized by the body, unlike man-made ascorbic acid which is sold as vitamin C.
Researchers have identified nearly 150 nutritive constituents in acerola cherry which includes bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium, and phosphorus. As a comparison of Vitamin C content to other fruits, 1 small Acerola cherry contains around 80mg Vitamin C - this is 30 times the amount found in Oranges (of the same weight). This undoubtedly makes acerola cherry one of the most nutritious fruits known to us.
Parsley leaf (Petroselinum sativum)
Parsley is a highly nutritious member of the umbelliferous vegetable family. It has many health benefits and has been used for 100's of years as a natural remedy for many conditions and as a food. It contains a host of nutrients such as Vitamin A, C, E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid, volatile oils, coumarins, flavonoids, and chlorophyll.
Parsley contains more vitamin C than any other culinary vegetables i.e. approximately three times as much as found in oranges and about the same amount as black currants. Its iron content is also high (around twice as much as spinach). The plant is a good source of manganese, calcium, and potassium. Also acts as an antioxidant.
Parsley is one of the most important culinary herbs for providing vitamins it is an immune system multi-vitamin and mineral complex all by itself.
Another Super Fruit due to its wide array of beneficial phytonutrients. During World War 2, the blackcurrant was used as a replacement for oranges and other fruits rich in Vitamin C as they were hard to come by in the United Kingdom.
Blackcurrant fruit is extraordinarily rich in Vitamin C and far superior to navel oranges - containing more than three times as much as an orange. It also contains a good amount of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and vitamin E. Blackcurrants are a great food for increasing energy and the seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids.
Packed with Antioxidants (anthocyanins, a type of polyphenol) and Phytonutrients, a recent scientific study has revealed that the natural chemicals and compounds found in blackcurrants may help balance the impact exercise can have on the body.
Rose Hips are round red fruits found on natural roses, a great source of Vitamin C and bioflavonoids. There is as much vitamin C in a cup of rosehip pulp as in 40 oranges. Vitamins A, B1-3, and K are also present. Bioflavonoids present in the pulp and the rind of the fruits exert a synergic action to Vitamin C, enhancing its absorption by the body.
From a health perspective, they are best known for their high content of vitamin C. There is approximately 1,700 mg of C in 100 gm of dried rosehip. That's a lot of readily bio-available vitamin. A lot more than what's in an orange.
Native Americans have been using rosehips as a tea for thousands of years and when the tea is finished, the hips were added to stews or soups. There was just too much nutrition in a rosehip to let it go to waste.
This dark red fruit is certainly no stranger to the world of alternative medicine and could be described as a nutritional superstar with its high iron and vitamin content. It has an antioxidant potential even greater than that of blueberries.
A true gift from Nature. Elderberries contain more vitamin C than any other herb except for black currants and rosehips! Anthocyanins found in elderberries have more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C.
Elderberry anthocyanins support immune function by boosting the production of cytokines, proteins acting as messengers in the immune system to help regulate the immune response. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, B, and C, flavonoids, and potassium. Also said to be good as healthy heart support.
In Summary: The combination of vitamin-rich ingredients in this product provides you with an exceptionally effective, food state vitamin C along with all of the healthy nutrients that ensure maximum absorption and nutritional utilization as the array of nutrients work in perfect synergy within the human body.
For this reason, they are more effective than synthetic Vitamin C supplements. Most of these synthetic vitamin products are packed with unwanted fillers, binders, additives, and colors. In many cases, these excipients can reduce the absorption of the active ingredients and are potential allergens to many people.
