How many lumps of sugar are in your vitamin C drink?
It's what's on the inside that counts
Green Tea +C gets its “C” from Acerola cherry, a tiny fruit resembling a cherry tomato that contains more vitamin C by weight than an orange. Coconut water powder provides electrolytes to re-hydrate and replenish, while ginger, turmeric & orange peel work together as a traditional immune support blend.
Matcha green tea and vitamin C are sort of like best buddies, they support each other to make each one a little better than before! We blended whole-leaf tea & whole-food sourced vitamin C, added immune-supporting spices like ginger & turmeric, and left out the sugar & artificial chemicals to give you a clean, natural boost for daily wellness.
Before you reach for your usual packet of a certain vitamin C fizzy drink, be aware that it's over 50% sugar! Fructose, sugar, cane sugar (whatever the ‘hip’ name is these days) suppresses the immune system. It's kind of like adding a sugar packet to water, along with synthetic vitamins and chemical flavors. Doesn't sound so healthy anymore, does it? Our Green Tea +C is sugar-free and contains whole-food & whole-vitamin ingredients that your body actually recognizes, for optimum immunity & daily wellness.
Synthetic vitamins are considered by many to be "scientifically identical" to those found in nature, but our bodies have trouble absorbing them, because they don’t actually recognize them as food. Vitamins aren’t a single chemical; they are a complex assortment of mirconutrients that work together for optimum health.
In the case of Ascorbic Acid (the lab-made version of vitamin C used in processed foods), the isolated vitamin is extracted from a sugar molecule found in corn, leaving behind countless trace nutrients required for complete nutrition. Ascorbic Acid is like vitamin C with holes in it; your body gets some of the nutrients, but not the whole package. Green Tea +C derives its vitamin C from whole-food Acerola Cherry, keeping the complex vitamin intact and giving you whole-vitamin benefits.
Certain fizzy drinks talk a big vitamin C game, boasting something like 2600% of your daily value, but the truth is your body can’t absorb anywhere near that amount. It’s simply too much of a so-called “good” thing. The vitamin C that’s listed on your favorite supermarket staples is actually Ascorbic Acid, a synthetic vitamin that’s added back to foods to replace what was lost during pasteurization (a heat process that destroys naturally-occurring vitamins).
Ascorbic acid is essentially only the outer layer of a vitamin, and is missing the important “helper” nutrients that maximize absorption. This means that only a small fraction of that 2600% of Vitamin C is even absorbed into the body, and the rest goes to waste. On the other hand, the Vitamin C in Green Tea +C comes from Acerola Cherry, a whole food source that the body can recognize and absorb efficiently.
