Description

Is Vitamin C for me?


 

Vitamin C is essential for the maintenance of the immune defence, providing support for several cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Helping to stimulate the production of essential immune cells, vitamin C is also essential for iron absorption. Our vitamin C formula also contains zinc for added efficacy and 30mg of naturally occurring bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are naturally present as a result of the Food Based® process and belong to the flavonoids class of antioxidants. Alongside this, our Vitamin C Complex includes chaga mushroom, which provides further antioxidant support to enhance the immune system.

 


Why Choose Food Based®?

 


Instead of creating regulated isolated nutrients, we recreate what nature intended; Food Based® nutrients that the body recognises. Our unique fermentation process bio-enhances nutrients, recreating the sophisticated, naturally occurring matrix present in food. This complete structure is gentle on the stomach whilst also ensuring optimal bioavailability and superior absorption.

Bioflavonoids

Bioflavonoids are a water-soluble, bioactive class of secondary metabolites originating from various plants and fungus. They are involved in many functions of the plant including providing pigmentation for flower colour, UV filtration and chemical messaging.

So how do they benefit us? Bioflavonoids are found naturally occurring in foods with specific varieties, including hesperidin, rutin, naringin, and quercetin being found in citrus fruits. Bioflavonoids possess antioxidant activity and immune-boosting properties that work in synergy with vitamin C. These substances are more than just antioxidants too; they have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. As a general rule, the more colourful a food is, the higher its bioflavonoid component.
