It's here! Our new organic wholefood vitamin C blend containing the same source of raw organic camu camu but now with added organic freeze dried acerola and a pinch of organic peppermint leaf for freshness.

Unlike synthetic ascorbic acid (vitamin C) which is highly acidic and derived from processing corn, our wholefood vitamin C provides vitamin C in its true form. This means it contains the naturally occurring enzymes such as tyrosinase and a broad spectrum of bioflavonoids that aid assimilation.

Camu camu & acerola contain some of the highest concentrations vitamin C on the planet, sourced from small organic farms in Peru.

Should I purchase the jar or refill?

If it's your first time purchasing this product we would recommend selecting the jar and then utilising the refill pouches for top ups as these can be delivered through the letterbox. Please note that a maximum of two refill pouches can fit inside a large letter (royal mail).

For international customers however, we recommend selecting the refill option always as this will help reduce the weight of the shipment. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a potent water soluble anti-oxidant which helps to prevent free radical damage. The body cannot synthesise vitamin C and therefore it must be obtained from the diet. Real vitamin C has a wide variety of functions in the body, including: 

  • Co-factor in collagen synthesis
  • Boosts immunity
  • Natural anti-histamine
  • Enhances wound healing
  • Helps regenerate the reduced form of vitamin E
  • Contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism
  • Nourishes the adrenal glands

Other nutrients

Our organic wholefood vitamin C provides naturally occuring minerals and trace elements including:

  • Manganese
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Zinc

The fruits also contain phenolic acids, flavonoids (rutin, quercetin), anthocyanins and carotenoids (lutein, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and neoxanthin). Peppermint leaf has also been shown to gently inhibit histamine release.

FAQ

'What is the capsule size?'

The capsule size is 0. Capsules sizes are named by numerical values, numbered: 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 from biggest to smallest.

'What happens if I take too much?'

Taking too much vitamin C can cause stomach upset. If this occurs, lower the dose until you reach bowel tolerance

'Can I take the powder out of the capsule?'

Absolutely, feel free to mix into smoothies or other. The peppermint gives it a refreshing taste.

'Is this the same as ascorbic acid?'

There is no synthetic ascorbic acid in our supplement which we do not recommend. 

'What is the maximum number of capsules I can take in one go?'

We recommend taking no more than 3 capsules in one serving or as professionally directed. Some people like to take more than this as it is 100% food based but you should listen to your body and build up slowly.

'Can I take it on an empty stomach?'

You can take our organic wholefood vitamin C with or away from food depending on what feels best for you. We like to take ours away from food for optimal absorption. If it's your first time trying this supplement however, try it after food first.

'Can I take more when I'm feeling ill?'

We can't give medical advice however, some of our customers like to take more vitamin C rich foods such as camu camu & acerola when they are feeling run down or feel a cold coming on. It is worth noting that vitamin C contributes to normal functioning of the immune system.

Safety information

If you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medications or have any medical condition, we always advise you consult your doctor or healthcare professional before use.

Very happy

I've been taking 1 capsule mid morning and 1 capsule mid afternoon, I feel like my skin is looking a bit better already. Also trying to increase my vitamin C to boost my immune system at the moment.

Great Supplement!

Love the fact they are a pure and wholesome supplement. Having used various other vitamin C tablets, these are the best I’ve tried. The addition of camu camu is great. One difference between this supplement and others is that there is a slight odour, but this is not unpleasant. Seeing lots of benefits after using for just a short amount of time. Will be restocking, thanks for producing this product!
