Synthetic Vitamin C
June 25, 2013
I wish I knew about C-1000 sooner... C-1000 is corn-free (that's good), but it's made from ascorbic acid (not good). Ascorbic acid, the synthesized version of vitamin C, and synthesized from corn-syrup, is not found in nature and has been proven to kill bacteria effectively, which makes it effective in killing parasites and infections, however... Unfortunately, it does not differentiate between the good and bad bacteria in the gut, and wipes out good bacteria in the gut, which is mandatory for vibrant health. So if you use C-1000, take your good bacteria. Personally, I won't be buying C-1000 again. Once again, stick with nature.
Pros:It's corn-free. Most corn in the U.S. is genetically modified. Even if the corn is shipped from China, it's likely heavily tainted and unfit to consume.
Cons:It's made from ascorbic acid, a synthetic and unnatural version of vitamin C.
