Vitamin C, is a water-soluble vitamin, it dissolves in water and cannot be stored by the body. Excess amounts are eliminated in urine so must be replaced every day in our diet to provide a continuous supply.
Vitamin C plays an essential role in the following processes in the body:
Growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body.
It helps the body to make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
It is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining our bones and teeth.
Vitamin c is also recognized as a valuable antioxidant. - antioxidants help to block some of the damage caused by harmful free radicals, substances that damage DNA. The build-up of harmful free radicals over time may contribute to the aging process and also to the development of serious health conditions such as, heart disease, and arthritis.
A large percentage of vitamin C tablets and products on the market today are synthetically made ascorbic acid, or variations such as calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate or potassium ascorbate.
These laboratory produced powders like ascorbic acid are not natural complex vitamin C. They are chemically synthesized isolates that have been manufactured industrially. These synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of life-supporting nutrient complexes that are actually found in real natural vitamin C complex.
Although synthetic or man-made vitamin C or "ascorbic acid" is manufactured to resemble Vitamin C in its chemical structure, it is missing all of the essential and natural co-factors. Grown By Nature specialize in natural nutritional supplements.

*1.74 times more absorbed into red blood cells
*3.2 to 15.6 times the antioxidant effect
*As compared to USP Ascorbic AcidThese studies may not conform to peer reviewed standards, therefore the results are not conclusive.Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for human beings and guinea pigs as these organisms cannot synthesize the vitamin on their own.1 Other animals are able to synthesize this vitamin on their own. In a study conducted by J.A. Vinson in 1991, he found that the Re-Natured® Vitamin C was 1210% more bio-available than the chemical isolate ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic Acid is not Vitamin C. It is an important part of Vitamin C, but alone as a chemical isolate, it does not perform the same activity as when it is in embedded in it's natural food complex. Grown By Nature uses Re-Natured® nutrients. Our Vitamin C is a food complex from citrus fruit pulp (bioflavonoids).
