High-Potency Source

Because our vitamin C comes from whole-food, the vitamin C is surrounded and accompanied by other natural whole-food vitamins and minerals. This supplement is a good source of:


Whole Food vs. Synthetic

Acerola cherries are the only ingredient found in this vitamin C nutrient supply. We use the entire cherry, not just the juice. These cherries are naturally high in vitamin C and the co-factors and enzymes that give vitamin C its power.

Ascorbic acid is a synthetic form of vitamin C created from genetically modified (GMO) corn syrup and hydrochloric acid. A synthetic ingredient like this tends to be about 1/10th of the cost of a natural ingredient like acerola cherries.


Dangers of Synthetic Vitamin C

GENOTOXINS


Optivida does not use synthetic Vitamin C. Several studies give details about the dangers associated with the synthetic form of vitamin C. The first study of synthetic vitamin C found chemical agents associated with cell mutations (genotoxins).

The research study (in Science Jun 15, 2001) reported that: "Synthetic vitamin C may contribute to the formation of genotoxins that can lead to cancer."

Dangers of Synthetic Vitamin C

ARTERY DAMAGE


A study presented to the American Heart Association showed: "A link between consumption of only 500mg of synthetic vitamin C (ascorbic acid) per day and a great propensity toward thickening of arteries."

Dangers of Synthetic Vitamin C

MUSCLE DAMAGE


The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported that, "The administration of (synthetic) vitamin C significantly hampered endurance capacity."
