Many people have innocently believed the implied advertising claims that vitamin C supplements come from citrus fruits or some other so-called natural source. Unfortunately, research shows nothing could be further from the truth. Did you know that almost every “vitamin C” supplement on the market today is not a natural and safe whole-food vitamin C complex but is made in China from isolated, synthetic ascorbic acid molecules manufactured in a test tube from genetically modified corn glucose (sugar)?
So here are the facts: Back in the 1930s, Dr. Szent-Gyorgyi won the Nobel Prize in medicine for discovering vitamin C. He was trying to find ways to help people with a serious disease called scurvy. He concentrated whole foods high in vitamin C, like lemons, limes and red peppers, and used these natural concentrates to successfully treat people with scurvy as well as people who had subclinical signs of this disease, such as bleeding gums. These natural forms of vitamin C worked extremely well, but because they were difficult to preserve, Szent-Gyorgyi tried isolating the one compound he thought might be responsible for these beneficial results. This is how he discovered the ascorbic acid molecule. He then gave people with scurvy just isolated ascorbic acid and found it didn’t work. As a result, he didn’t advocate using ascorbic acid, even though he discovered it! As a medical doctor, he asserted over and over that the most effective and safe form of vitamin C was the 100% natural, whole-food form and that isolated ascorbic acid should be considered a drug. Despite this, people came to believe that ascorbic acid was synonymous with vitamin C.
All the goodness we associate with vitamin C is actually created by the many different naturally occurring phytonutrient compounds found only in 100% natural, whole-food vitamin C — such as bioflavonoids (including quercetin, rutin, and hesperidin), anthocyanins, proanthocyanins, catechins, tyrosinase, and many more — which all work together synergistically. Study after study shows that natural vitamin C complex found in whole foods supports the immune system, offers potent antioxidant activity, promotes healing, and strengthens capillary walls. Sadly, most of these benefits do not occur when isolated ascorbic acid is used. In fact, recent studies have indicated that isolated ascorbic acid can actually become a damaging pro-oxidant (free-radical generator) and can even suppress the immune system. Additionally, researchers have consistently found that there is no benefit to consuming megadoses of vitamin C because, in reality, our bodies can absorb only about 250 to 500 milligrams of vitamin C at one time — anything more is just flushed out.
At Synergy, we were so deeply troubled about the misleading use of ascorbic acid that we began creating a truly natural, whole-food vitamin C supplement that offers all the proven health-promoting benefits of true vitamin C. During our research, we learned about a remarkable berry, known as camu camu, that grows only in the Brazilian rainforest and that is one of the world’s richest source of naturally occurring vitamin C. Camu camu berries actually have up to 60 times more vitamin C than oranges! But these berries grow only in the most remote areas of the rainforest. As it turns out, the indigenous peoples have been canoeing into these remote parts of the rainforest for hundreds of years specifically to harvest these precious berries for their own use. After more than two years of research and development, we discovered a way to sustainably harvest enough camu camu berries to bring you an extraordinary product while fairly and respectfully compensating the native peoples. The result — Pure Radiance C ® — is the first truly 100% natural, whole-food vitamin C.
The camu camu berries in Pure Radiance C are carefully hand gathered at their peak of nutritional potency. They are then canoed downriver to a specially designed facility, where they are gently concentrated by using our special low-temperature process, which perfectly preserves all their natural vitamin C and all of the other fragile and beneficial phytonutrients. We then incorporate our camu camu into a matrix of organic manioc (tapioca) root — a proprietary process that protects the berries. By designing this new process, we have been able to avoid the common practice of using genetically modified maltodextrin or cornstarch as processing aids!
Next, we blend our exclusive, wildcrafted camu camu berries with certified organic acerola and amla berry concentrates, several other luscious organic berries and fruits (blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, cherries, rosehips, and lemons), and organic buckwheat berry sprouts — all bursting with highly beneficial bioflavonoids and dozens of other crucial cofactors. The result is a truly safe, whole-food vitamin C and bioflavonoid supplement that provides you with essential support rooted in timeless nutritional wisdom. Just one vegetarian capsule of Pure Radiance C provides you with 200% of the RDI for vitamin C — the perfect amount according to the latest research.
We are pleased to be able to offer you our Pure Radiance C because it embodies everything we value and pursue as a company. Creating a partnership with the rainforest peoples allows us to help preserve their ancient lifestyle and protect a priceless ecosystem while providing a truly remarkable product. It is a genuine “synergy” in which everyone and everything benefit — the Amazonians, the rainforest, the planet, and you.
