Remove nature and you've likely altered the compound. To that end, 'C-Food' has become our whole-food 'Vitamin C' alternative that provides our customers and Affiliates with a serious formula that fulfills our critical need for an uncompromised source of the complete Vitamin C molecule. 'C-Food' is a proprietary extraction of Camu Camu and Acerola. These two berries together represent the richest known source of complete Vitamin C anywhere on the planet. 'C-food' was created and is distributed exclusively by Zenus.
Our 'C-Food' formula is the richest whole-food 'Vitamin C' supplement made to date. Zenus does not denature, misbrand or compromise the integrity of any of the constituents endowed by nature, so this breakthrough formula is superior and equal to none other in the nutritional marketplace!
Why C-Food is Essential to Your Diet
Not just for the high levels of Vitamin C, but because C-Food properties are rich in all the nutrients at the molecular level including beta carotene, fatty acids, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, bioflavonoids, riboflavin, and various amino acids. Other constituents include thiamine, protein, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
If you are currently taking a Vitamin C supplement purchased at your local outlet store you may find a cheaper price, but read the label to see if you're actually buying Vitamin C. More importantly, the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) levels vary between age groups, gender, and activity; therefore, do not subscribe to the one-size-fits-all theories for daily intake. If you are exposed to cigarette smoke, air pollution, or ultraviolet light from the sun, be sure to increase your intake levels when calculating your total daily recommended amount in response to environmental exposure with free radicals.†
Along with our 'proprietary' 'Microbiome Boost' (Optimum D-tox), 'Vitamin C' is an important nutrient that boosts the body's immune system!
Most Vitamin C supplements are synthetic and are full of additives and fillers. But more importantly, synthetic Vitamin C is not identified as food by the body nor can it be absorbed on a cellular level.
Our 'proprietary' C-Food is a complete food - with bioflavonoids and phytochemicals - as evidence suggests that it's far more effective and readily absorbed than synthetic Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or even Ester C. A healthy dose of Vitamin C will help protect your body from infection and help maintain healthy bones and teeth – as well as quicken the body's ability to repair injuries and tissue wounds.
Why is Vitamin C so important to our bodies?
- It helps with the production of collagen – essential for great-looking skin.
- It helps with bone formation.
- It's an important antioxidant; helps fight cellular aging.
- It helps produce anti-stress hormones; important for good mental health.
- It has anti-viral properties.
- It acts as an antihistamine.
- It helps lower serum uric acid.
Why are Camu Camu and Acerola Used?
Camu Camu is a shrub that grows in the Amazon rainforest. Both its fruit and leaves are known for having natural medicinal properties. Camu Camu fruit contains many nutrients including a very high concentration of Vitamin C, beta-carotene, fatty acids, and protein.
Acerola is a fruit grown in sub-tropical areas throughout the world (U.S., Southeast Asia, India, South America) and it, too, has some natural medicinal properties of its own, making it a forceful combination with Camu Camu.
Acerola is very rich in Vitamin C, and also contains Vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. Athletes use it to help improve physical endurance.
Suggested use: Take two (2) capsules daily (or more); or as recommended by your health care practitioner. Pregnant or nursing mothers should always check with a health care practitioner before taking any dietary supplement. Add C-Food in combination with other Zenus products such as Microbiome Boost and Powre+ as part of a daily regimen for the strongest synergistic effects from whole-food supplements.
