Vitamin C Extra
Vitamin C Extra contains vitamins C and E, two important anti-oxidant nutrients that work together in the body.
Recommended Intake - 1-2 tablets daily as a food supplement or as directed by a practitioner.
Vitamin C is synthesised naturally by all species of primates except man, guinea pigs and the Indian fruit bat. It is thought that a genetic mutation caused this situation some 25-60 million years ago.
It is involved in:
* Formation and maintenance of collagen
* Metabolism of tryptophan (a brain chemical)
* Antioxidant activity
* Maintenance of a healthy immune system
* Absorption of iron
o Growth and repair of tissue
o Maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels
o Metabolism of fat
Who may Choose to take Vitamin C Supplements?
* People whose diets contain little fresh fruit and vegetables
* The elderly and those dependent on institutional catering
* Smokers and those who drink alcohol
* Those with demanding lifestyles
* Those wishing to maintain normal cholesterol levels
* People who take aspirin or prescribed drugs such as antibiotics
* Athletes and those whose work involves physical activity
Food State Vitamin C
* Better absorbed, longer retained and better utilised
* Lasts longer in the body
* Gentle on the stomach
* No need to take with food, as it contains all the food factors necessary for absorption
* No known allergic reactions
Sources and Requirements
Vitamin C can be obtained from many natural sources. The best-known sources are the citrus fruits: oranges, lemons, tangerines, limes and grapefruits. The fruits with the highest natural concentrations are citrus fruits, rose hips, strawberries and acerola cherries.
Vegetable sources include: red and green peppers, broccoli, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, asparagus, parsley, dark leafy greens, cabbage and sauerkraut. Grains and beans contain very small quantities, except when sprouted, when they provide excellent amounts. The richest vegetable source is the green pepper, which contains more vitamin C than an orange, weight-for-weight.
RDA and Dosage
The RDA for adults is considered to be 60mg. Requirements for vitamin C vary according to age (needs increase with years), state of health, weight, activity, energy levels and metabolism. Needs are increased with stress (emotional and environmental), illness and injuries. Smoking, birth control pills, cortisone use and aspirin all decrease vitamin C levels.
What is Food State Vitamin C?
Food State Vitamin C is complexed in citrus fruit pulp. The result is a concentrated source of vitamin C in a form as close as possible to that found in food, with all the appropriate bioflavonoids, carbohydrates, proteins and amino acids.
One of the important aspects of Food State Vitamin C that differentiates it from other nutrients is that, because it is complete with food carriers, you can take it between meals - even on an empty stomach - with no adverse reactions. Hence, it is ideal for people who sometimes have to eat at irregular times and sports people who need regular intakes of vitamins to replace losses under physical exertion.
Bioflavonoids (sometimes known as Vitamin P)
Vitamin C is best absorbed in the presence of bioflavonoids. Most bioflavonoids are citrus-derived. In the same way that bioflavonoids are naturally occurring in the presence of vitamin C in fruit (e.g. orange peel), the Food State Vitamin C has bioflavonoids naturally occurring in the product.
Vitamin C complexed in citrus pulp: vitamin E combined in vegetable oil: citrus bioflavonoid complex, vegetable stearic acid, tablet coating (Vegetable Cellulose).

50 Tabs (Green Lid)
Vitamin B Complex Plus Vitamin C
Nature's Own Food State Vitamin B Complex Plus Vitamin C will give you all eight recognised B vitamins and vitamin C.

What do the B vitamins do?
* They may help maintain normal nerve function

The B vitamins work most effectively when taken together. Vitamin C aids the absorption of the B vitamins without reducing your body's own vitamin C reserves.

* If you have a demanding lifestyle with irregular eating patterns
* If you consume large amounts of sugar, coffee, tea and/or alcohol

* If you are elderly or on a reduced diet
* If you are pregnant (on Doctor's advice) or breastfeeding

Natures Own Wholefood Zinc
60 V Caps
New Wholefood Zinc is made from hydroponically-grown brassica (a member of the broccoli family). We believe that this is the only genuine wholefood zinc product on the market. This edible species of brassica has a tremendous capacity to bioaccumulate high levels of minerals and metabolise them into its plant tissue and structure which is why it is so ideal for producing supplements where higher levels of minerals are required than would normally be present in the food we eat.
Wholefood Zinc is suitable for vegans and comes in an easy-to-take capsule.
Directions for use
1-2 capsules daily, or take as directed by a practitioner.
Suitable for Vegetarians and for people with Candida and yeast sensitivities.
