Fun fact: Humans are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously (in the body), so, we need to consume it via our diet or through supplementation.
While vitamin C is naturally present in some foods, largely fruits and vegetables, we all know how tough it can be to meet our daily vitamin quotas.
This is where supplements come into play. Because going into flu season with a poor immune system is like going to battle without armor - NOT favorable.
Provided you are taking a quality supplement, vitamin C supplementation is a sure-fire way of keeping you, and your immunity, on top of its game.
So what kind of characteristics define a "quality" vitamin C supplement?
Well, a lot of things really, but here at Ora Organic it comes down to these simple standards:
Choose a vitamin C supplement, in its whole food form, that’s high in bioflavonoids, is made cleanly, and is 100% certified organic
Vitamin C Isn't Made from Oranges
Most vitamin C supplements on the market use synthetic vitamin C or ascorbic acid. The majority of this synthetic vitamin C is originally derived from GMO corn and processed with chemicals like acetone (think: nail polish remover) that are not used in the production of organic certified products.
