Best Result Nutrition Premium Food Based Vitamin C is food form state Vitamin C supplement. Food form supplements are as Mother Nature intended. So, you can get maximum absorption and utilisation of nutrients

NO synthetic Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

Best Result Nutrition Premium Food Based Vitamin C is food state Vitamin C derived from Rosehip, Acerola cherries, Parsley leaf, Blackcurrant and Elderberry - natural food state sources as the body requires. It is Gentle and Non-Acidic like ascorbic acid.

Food form of Vitamin C is retained longer in the body due to its array of beneficial vitamins, bioflavonoids, minerals and other phytonutrients.

However, Synthetic or Man-made vitamin C (in the form of ascorbic acid and mineral ascorbates) may resemble Vitamin C in chemical structure, but don't have all of the essential and natural co-factors found in "food state(food form)" health food products. Best Result Nutrition Premium Food Based Vitamin C complex combination is made up of natural food ingredients for maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation. Vitamin C is a needed nutrient and water-soluble vitamin,  requiring you to consume Vitamin C every day. Vitamin C also builds collagen, protects mucous membranes, and prevents scurvy. Vitamin C is vital to keep the immune system functioning and help the body fight infections and viruses.

This combination of natural ingredients in Food Form(Food State) is also one of the few Vitamin C products that:

  • Is NOT rapidly excreted from the body, so is retained for longer;

  • Is NOT acidic (so those who cannot tolerate acidic and citrus based supplements can consume);

  • Has a high ratio of retention & utilisation  (means that a lower daily dose is required);

  • Is Suitable for young and old;

  • Is Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans;

*Benefits Based On Science*:

Acerola Cherry:

Some know them as a Super Fruit due to its outstanding nutritional values and Acerola is most well-known for being remarkably rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for the growth and repair of cells and a strong immune system.

These little red coloured fruits possess a fantastic array of vitamin and antioxidant power. Acerola cherry provides a naturally bio-available and potent source of Vitamin C which is greatly utilised by the body; however, this not occurs if you use synthetic made ascorbic acid which some companies sold as vitamin C  out there. So, invest in purchasing our Best Result Nutrition Premium Food Based Vitamin C for high absorption.

Researchers have identified nearly 150 nutritive constituents in acerola cherry which includes bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium and phosphorus. As a comparison of Vitamin C content to other fruits, one small Acerola cherry carries about 80mg Vitamin C, which is 30 times the amount found in Oranges (of the same weight). Admittedly, this makes acerola cherry one of the most nutritious fruits known to us.

Parsley leaf:

Parsley(Petroselinum sativum) is an extremely nutritious member of the umbelliferous vegetable family with many health benefits, used for 100's of years as a natural remedy for many conditions. Parsley contains many nutrients including Vitamin A, C, E, bioflavonoids, folic acid, iron, volatile oils, flavonoids, coumarins and chlorophyll.

Parsley carries more vitamin C than any other culinary vegetables, i.e. approximately three times as much as found in oranges and about the same amount as black currants. Its iron content is also high (around twice as much as spinach). The plant is an excellent source of manganese, calcium and potassium. Also acts as an antioxidant.

Parsley benefits your immune defences due to its high levels of antioxidants, including vitamin C and vitamin A. Vitamin C helps to maintain a healthy gut environment, the locale where much of the immune system is. High intakes of vitamin C correlate with lower levels of inflammation.

Parsley is one of the essential culinary herbs for giving vitamins – it is an immune system multivitamin and mineral complex all by itself.

Blackcurrant:

Another Super Fruit due to its vast array of beneficial phytonutrients. During World War 2, the blackcurrant was used as a replacement for oranges and other fruits rich in Vitamin C as they were hard to come by in the United Kingdom. With emerging evidence showing that the blackcurrant possesses antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral properties, it sounds like a potent Vitamin C source.

Blackcurrant fruit is extraordinarily rich in Vitamin C and far superior to navel oranges - carrying at least three times as much as an orange. Also, it includes a significant amount of potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin E. Blackcurrants are great for boosting energy and the seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids.

Packed with Phytonutrients and Antioxidants (anthocyanins, a type of polyphenol). A recent scientific study revealed that the natural chemicals and compounds that we can find in black currants might help balance the impact that exercise can have on the body. Some studies show that they carry up to 15 unique types os anthocyanins. (1)

Rosehips:

Rose Hips are round red fruits found on natural roses, an excellent source of bioflavonoids and Vitamin C . Just out of curiosity, in a cup of rosehip pulp there is as much vitamin C as in 40 oranges. Vitamins A, B1, B3 and K are present too. Bioflavonoids present in the rind and the pulp of the fruits exert a synergic action to Vitamin C, improving its absorption by the body.

From a health perspective, they have known them for their high content of vitamin C. There is approximately 1,700 mg of C in 100 gm of dried rosehip. That's a lot of readily bio-available vitamin. A lot more than what's in the orange. Studies have discovered that vitamin C decreases sun damage to the skin, lessening wrinkling, dryness and discolouration and improving its overall appearance. (2).

This dark red fruit is indeed no stranger to the world of alternative medicine, and some define it as a nutritional superstar with its high iron and vitamin content. It has an antioxidant potential even more significant than that of blueberries.


Elderberry:

A real gift from Nature. Elderberries have more vitamin C than any other herb except for blackcurrants and rosehips! Anthocyanins found in elderberries have more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C.Elderberries contain flavonoids, which are natural substances. They seem to help fight inflammation, reduce swelling, and improve the immune system.  Elderberry eases flu symptoms like fever, cough, headache, sore throat, fatigue, and body aches, according to studies. Even more, the benefits seem to be greatest when started within 24 to 48 hours after the symptoms begin. One study found that elderberry could cut the duration of flu symptoms by more than 50%.

Elderberry anthocyanins help immune function by increasing the production of cytokines, proteins acting as messengers in the immune system to help control the immune response. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, B, and C, potassium and flavonoids. Said to be used for healthy heart support too.

Elderberry has made its way into cosmetic products and for a good reason. Its bioflavonoids and antioxidants, along with its high vitamin A content, make it excellent for skin health. Researchers presume that a compound found in the elderberry could provide a natural boost to skin. (3)

In Summary: The combination of vitamin-rich ingredients in this product provide you with a beneficial, food state vitamin C simultaneously with all of the healthy nutrients that assure maximum nutrient utilisation and absorption as the array of nutrients work in complete synergy within the human body.

For this reason, they are more potent than synthetic Vitamin C supplements. Most of these synthetic vitamin products stuff their supplements with unwanted fillers, binders, additives and colours.

In several cases, these excipients can decrease absorption of the active ingredients and are potential allergens to many people.
