True To Nature C
Vitamin C as Nature Provides
  • Natural form of vitamin C complex, from herbs, fruits and vegetables
  • Natural vitamin C is more than ascorbic acid: it contains a wide array of nutrients like bioflavonoids, ascorbigen, rutin, hesperidin, choline, vitamin K tyrosinase and organically bound copper
  • Provides micronutrients for enhanced health benefits

    Although healers and scientists as far back as Hippocrates knew that fresh vegetables and fruits were important for health, it wasn’t until the 1930s that vitamin C or ascorbic acid was discovered and its far-reaching benefits understood. Since then, vitamin C's importance has been established: it is available as ascorbic acid in pills, powders, drinks, tablets, and crystals.

    But only in the past decade have we understood the importance of obtaining vitamin C from plants and food, rather than only from purified ascorbic acid. This natural vitamin C - called the vitamin C complex - includes ascorbic acid but it also contains a wide array of nutrients like bioflavonoids, ascorbigen, rutin, hesperidin, choline, vitamin K tyrosinase and organically bound copper. According to the vitamin C pioneers Dr. Royal Lee and Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi, ascorbic acid is the outer shell of the naturally occurring vitamin C Complex.

    Planetary Herbals True To Nature C is the vitamin C that nature has provided all along.

    Vibrant compound
    Most fruits and vegetables contain some ascorbic acid. True To Nature C consists of natural ingredients that not only contain ascorbic acid, but further deliver the micronutrients necessary for the full benefits of Vitamin C Complex. Among the ingredients are:

  • Acerola cherry (Malpighia emarginata)
    A native of Central and South America, this plant contains ascorbic acid and several polyphenols such as cyaniding, pelargonidin, and quercitrin, all of which possess strong antioxidant activity.
  • Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia)
    A plant from Peru, camu camu has numerous anthocyanins and ellagic acids, along with ascorbic acid, and many consume it as a tonic for blood, tissue, and joint health.
  • Amla (Emblica officinalis)
    Amla is an Indian fruit that has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic health tradition. It has many uses, including organ health, blood health, and heart health.
  • Rose hips (rosa canina)
    A virtual goldmine of nutrients, rose hips contain ascorbic acid, carotenoids, catechins, flavonoids, ceucoanthocyanins, pectins, and polyphenols.

    True To Nature C also includes cabbage powder, elderberries, parsley leaf, cranberry, lecithin, grapeseed extract, and bilberry.
