Most people are aware of the importance of vitamin C to our health, and know that our bodies do not have the capacity to manufacture it. Further, since we cannot store vitamin C, as we can other vitamins, it is necessary to replenish our supply daily. But this is not possible on a diet of stored, canned, packaged, processed foods. This means that most people in industrialised nations are deprived of the vitamin C-rich food many primitive societies have in abundance. Even those of us on good diets can be deficient in vitamin C due to our poor soil quality. This has serious ramifications for our bones, because vitamin C is essential for their synthesis and repair. A lack of vitamin C in the body can also result in the defective formation of collagen and connective tissues, which can cause bruising, bleeding gums, petechiae (blood spots in the skin), joint pain and impaired wound healing.Vitamin C facilitates the absorption of various essential minerals, especially magnesium, which is so important in bone maintenance. Those of us who are not fortunate enough to have diets rich in freshly-picked, organic fruit and vegetables, must take supplements.Unfortunately, most vitamin C supplements on the market have been poorly formulated, using the cheapest chemicals. Many sensitive people get serious bladder and kidney irritations from them, and even kidney stones. Gastric distress can also be caused by improperly-formulated vitamin C. The late Dr John Whitman Ray preached for years against manufactured vitamin C, as have many other scientists. Dr Ray blamed C for the high incidence of bowel cancer.

The Australian (20 March 2000) printed a report on the danger of vitamin C: “Research by the University of Southern California has shown vitamin C supplements might do more harm than good by clogging the arteries. During the study, the artery walls of 583 people – aged 40-60 – with no symptoms of cardiovascular illness who took a typical 500mg dose of vitamin C per day thickened at more than twice the rate of those who took none.” The article did not mention what kind of vitamin C was used. We assume synthetic.

Because Dr Ray believed that vitamin C is essential for health, and because so many of his patients were not on diets that supply vitamin C, he conducted extensive research on various vitamin C products, and concluded that all killed the vitally important gut flora we need to sustain health. Then, he discovered a product from the Andes, had it tested, found that it did no harm, in fact is beneficial, and was finally able to recommend this vitamin C to his patients. This superb source of natural Vitamin C is not a commercial, shiny white powder. It’s made from organic rose hip granules.

Rose Hips

When a rose fades and the petals fall, the round seed pod left on the stem is called a “rose hip”. Rose hips contain more vitamin C than grapefruit and oranges. They also contain vitamins A, D, and E, iron, and antioxidants. The health benefits of rose hips include their ability to reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, relieve respiratory conditions, prevent cancer, lower cholesterol, manage diabetes, increase urination, regulate digestion, boost the immune system, increase circulation, and help in building stronger bones.

Other Natural Sources

Other common foods high in vitamin C include oranges, strawberries, capsicums, broccoli, kiwi fruit, grapefruit, red peppers, broccoli and cauliflower.
