Nutra C Ingredient Profile
Acerola cherry (25% Vitamin C):
Contains exceptional nutritional value and very high natural source of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is essential for the growth and repair of cells and for a strong immune system.
These little red coloured fruits possess an amazing array of vitamins and antioxidant power. Acerola cherry provides a naturally bio-available and powerful source of Vitamin C which is fully utilised by the body, unlike synthetic ascorbic acid which is sold as vitamin C.
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, 1 small Acerola cherry contains around 80mg Vitamin C - this is 30 times the amount found in Oranges (of the same weight).
This undoubtedly makes acerola cherry one of the most nutritious fruits known to us.
Parsley leaf (Petroselinum sativum):
A highly nutritious member of the umbelliferous vegetable family. It has many health benefits and has been used for 100's of years as a natural remedy for many ailments.
It contains a host of nutrients such as Vitamin A, C, E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid, volatile oils, coumarins, flavonoids, chlorophyll and powerful anticancer components.
Parsley contains 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 blackcurrants.
It's iron content is also high (around twice as much as spinach). The plant is a good source of manganese, calcium and potassium. Raw parsley and juice is used to cleanse the blood, dissolve the sticky deposits in veins, helps to maintains elasticity of blood vessels, helps to break down small kidney stones and gallstones and is a natural diuretic. It appears to enhance the body's absorption of manganese, which is important to help build bone. Parsley is one of the most important culinary herbs for providing vitamins. It is an immune system enhancer and multi-vitamin and mineral complex all by itself.
This berry offers a wide array of beneficial phytonutrients. Blackcurrant is extraordinarily rich in Vitamin C and far superior to oranges - containing more than three times the amount. It also contains a good amount of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and Vitamin E. Blackcurrants are a great food for increasing energy and the seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids. Packed with antioxiants (anthocyanins, a type of polyphenol) and phytonutrients, a recent scientific study has revealed that the natural chemicals and compounds found in blackcurrants may help balance the impact that exercise can have on the body.
Rose hips are round, red fruits found on natural roses and are a great source of Vitamin C, iron and bioflavonoids. There is as much Vitamin C in a cup of rosehip pulp as in 40 oranges and it has an antioxidant potential even greater than that of blueberries! Bioflavonoids present in the pulp and the rind of the fruits exert a synergic action to Vitamin C, enhancing its absorption by the body. Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 and K are also present.
Elderberries contain more Vitamin C than any other fruit except for blackcurrants and rose hips! Anthocyanins found in elderberries have more antioxidant capacity than either Vitamin E or Vitamin C. Elderberry anthocyanins support immune function by boosting the production of cytokines - proteins acting as messengers in the immune system to help regulate immune response. Elderberries are rich in antioxidants, Vitamins A, B, and C, flavonoids and potassium. They are also said to be good as healthy heart support.
