Whole Food Nutrition

We believe in nutrition from real, whole food ingredients, not vitamins and supplements created in a lab.

 

HOW MUCH VITAMIN C DO YOU REALLY NEED?

Certain fizzy drinks might talk a big vitamin C game, boasting something like 2600% of your daily value, but in reality, your body can’t absorb anywhere near that amount. It’s simply too much of a so-called “good” thing. Ascorbic acid is listed as vitamin C in a sizable chunk of your favorite supermarket staples, it’s purpose being, to replace vitamin C lost in the pasteurization process (the heat destroys naturally occurring vitamin C). Ascorbic acid is essentially only the outer layer of a vitamin, it is extracted and isolated from a sugar molecule found in corn, and therefore is missing important co-factors and micronutrients that work together for maximum absorption.

 

NATURAL VS. SYNTHETIC

Synthetic vitamins are considered by many to be "scientifically identical" to those found in nature, but our bodies have trouble absorbing them, because they don’t actually recognize them as food. Lab-made vitamins are missing important components that make a vitamin, well... a vitamin; nutrients are isolated and the vitamin compound is separated from the other parts whereas, naturally occurring vitamins are made up of many different elements- enzymes, co-enzymes, antioxidants, trace elements, and activators, essential for complete, whole food nutrition.

 

WHAT'S INSIDE

Green Tea +C gets its “C” from Acerola cherry, a tiny fruit resembling a cherry tomato that contains more vitamin C by weight than an orange. Coconut water powder provides electrolytes to re-hydrate and replenish, while ginger, turmeric & orange peel work together as a traditional immune support blend.
