Vitamin C As A Whole

Vitamin C As A Whole

This is Part 2 on the series on whole herbs vs. isolates (using Vitamin C as an example).

This series will be a four-part series to explain the benefits of whole herbs and how to use them correctly and effectively. 

OK, natural vs. isolate. Many chemists, medical doctors, companies and products equate vitamin C with ascorbic acid, as though they were the same thing. This just isn't so. Ascorbic acid is an isolate, a fraction, a distillate of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components as shown in the image in this post.

This is like giving you less than half of a product when you order something. You expected to get a whole phone but they only sent the battery! What? This won't work! Every year we learn more about vitamin C and we are still discovering new nutrients in vitamins that were not detectable before. Who knows what we will discover in the future.

So when choosing a vitamin or herbal supplement, especially for vitamin C, please remember to look for a whole herb, whole food, or whole vitamin source.

For next time I will be discussing using whole herb supplements together to get more out of your supplements. For example calcium and vitamin C together working as a team. Next, we will discuss cleansing and having your gut ready to accept and absorb nutrients more efficiently.
