100% natural vitamin C
From organically grown acerola cherries
No synthetic vitamin added
Also contains bioflavonoids and other nutrients from nature
Less acid than synthetic vitamin C
Vitamin C is the vitamin which is most taken in supplement form worldwide. Unfortunately, that vitamin C is synthetic in 99,9% of cases. Synthetic vitamin C is an isolated molecule without the additional nutrients present in nature which can be very useful.
Natural Vitamin C is non-synthetic. It is a natural extract from organically grown acerola cherries. Besides vitamin C, these fruits contain many other nutrients including bioflavonoids. The acerola extract contains, among other nutrients, quercetin and kaempferol. Natural vitamin C with bioflavonoids is active in the human body for longer than isolated synthetic vitamin C.
Many so-called natural vitamin C supplements are unfortunately not completely natural after all. Vitamin C-rich plant extracts are regularly enhanced with synthetic vitamin C in order to increase the vitamin content. Our Natural Vitamin C is however guaranteed to be free of synthetic substances.
The fruits from which this extract is made have been grown without pesticides or fertilizer. You can read more about this below.

3) The acerola extract is obtained through aqueous extraction. No toxic chemical solvents such as hexane or methanol have been used.
4) The extract has not been supplemented with synthetic vitamins.
