The Real Thing’s Nutra-C® Range contains Nutra-C® which is a form of chelated Vitamin C. This new formula includes Vitamin C as Calcium ascorbate and Magnesium ascorbate.

Nutra-C® has a neutral pH, unlike conventional Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), making it gentler on the gut. Nutra-C® is unique as it is manufactured via a proprietary, water-based process that yields a natural metabolite of Vitamin C, which enhances the body’s ability to use the Vitamin C. The presence of this metabolite means that there is improved uptake, and overall bioavailability compared to conventional Vitamin C.

This increased bioavailability is what makes Nutra-C® a smart choice if you want to reap all the benefits that Vitamin C has to offer in supporting good health and immunity. Nutra-C® delivers its Vitamin C in this highly available form because it is bonded with Calcium and Magnesium and contains the naturally occurring Vitamin C metabolite, Calcium threonate. This naturally occurring metabolite of Vitamin C is easily recognised by the body and is quickly taken up by the cells of the body, along with Vitamin C.

Nutra-C® has the following characteristics:
• Nutra-C® raised Vitamin C blood levels to higher concentrations compared to regular Vitamin C.
• Nutra-C® reduces gastrointestinal discomfort due to its neutral pH

This means that Nutra-C® is more bioavailable than regular ascorbic acid.

Nutra-C® contributes to the maintenance of good health and the normal functioning of the immune system.

The Real Thing Nutra-C® Combo Capsules

The Real Thing Nutra-C® Combo contains all the benefits of Nutra-C®, providing 1000 mg Vitamin C per dose with Bioflavonoids, along with the added benefits of zinc, selenium, curcumin and Bioperine® which contributes to maintaining good health.

Zinc is a mineral that is a factor in the maintenance of good health. Research has shown the benefit of zinc supplementation on a variety of infectious diseases. This makes zinc key in helping to maintain the immune function and good health.

Selenium is a micro-mineral that enhances our resilience and its deficiency makes us more vulnerable to infections. It acts as an antioxidant in the maintenance of good health.

Curcumin is the main active compound found in turmeric. Bioperine® is a concentrated extract from black pepper, which greatly enhances the absorption and availability of curcumin when taken together. Curcumin is an antioxidant that helps to relieve inflammation in the body. Many aspects of modern day living lead to increased inflammation, which over time can contribute to poor health and leave us vulnerable to illness and disease. Inflammation also occurs as a result of infection. Curcumin is included for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

The Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that has multiple functions in the body. Vitamin C can be thought of as a great quencher that ‘puts out the fire’ caused by many of the harmful aspects of modern day living. Interestingly, human bodies cannot make their own Vitamin C therefore this essential nutrient must be obtained from an outside source for optimal health.

Vitamin C is best known for its role as a powerful antioxidant and for the maintenance of the normal function of our immune system.

As an antioxidant, it offers protection against the negative effects of damaging free radicals or pro-oxidant particles. These are generated in excess in our bodies from a multitude of factors such as environmental pollutants, certain fried or convenience foods and from illness and infections. Maintaining a good supply of vitamin C offers the body a degree of resilience to these stressors. In this way, Vitamin C can be considered as ‘the right hand man’ of the body’s anti-oxidant mechanisms.

Our immune systems use Vitamin C for the normal and healthy functioning of multiple aspects of our immunity, our natural resistance against infections. Our immune systems are complex and comprised of many different types of cells that work together to identify and destroy pathogens. Vitamin C has been shown in many scientific studies to enhance or stimulate the activity of various immune cells and by doing so it helps to strengthen our own natural defenses.

We also owe Vitamin C credit for helping to keep our skin in good condition, as well as helping in the development and maintenance of maintaining gut health and other body tissues such as cartilage, blood vessels, bones, teeth and gums as it contributes to normal collagen formation. Vitamin C contributes to so many aspects of maintaining radiant health such as reducing tiredness and fatigue, a healthy nervous system and normal psychological function. It helps us absorb the important mineral iron from our food, it helps to keep cholesterol levels in check, is important for brain power, and even gray-resistant hair.
