The difference between natural and synthetic Vitamin C

Vitamin C has long been considered one of natures most potent allies in combating cold and flu symptoms because of its antihistamine capabilities, but did you know that many Vitamin C products on the market are either highly refined, or synthetic, meaning that your body eliminates them before any benefits have been absorbed into your system?

Vitamin C is water-soluble and must be regularly replenished to be an effective aid. For this reason, naturally-occurring sources are the best way to ensure your body recognises it as fuel and effectively manages it.

Many people know that you can inflate your Vitamin C intake by consuming certain fruits and vegetables, like oranges and carrots, and because these resources are in large supply in our country they make a great natural source of Vitamin C. A less-common but powerhouse producer of Vitamin C is the Rosa Canina berry, the superfood source of Rose-Hip Vital. Rosa Canina belongs to the Rosehip family of berries, certain types of which contain more than sixty times the Vitamin C found in an orange!

While rosehips grow naturally in South Africa and South America, Rose-Hip Vital® source their berries from Denmark, where the harvest is allowed to deeply root and mature for up to four years without any artificial interference. A patented extraction and drying method isolates 23 naturally-occurring minerals and 8 vitamins, including Vitamin C, from every yield. This process is not only exclusive to Rose-Hip Vital, but scientific research has found it to amplify the potency of the vitamins and minerals its extracts.
