Our hero today: Super C
Updated: May 18
Vitamin C is something we need daily as our bodies do not produce it on its own. The benefits of vitamin C are varied, but most of us consider it a wonderful way to strengthen our immune system. Vitamin C has also been touted as a way to support the cardiovascular system, help with prenatal care, support healthy eye function, and skin smoothing! Yes, our favorite vitamin C can help you look younger.
When you use isolated Vitamin C you are only getting a small amount of its intended benefits. Vitamin C works best when it is consumed as the whole fruit. Fruit purchased at the grocery store is depleted of vital nutrients as they were often picked 2 weeks prior to them ending up in your home. Vine-ripening is the best form of whole fruit nutrition, but if you do not live on or near a farm that allows you to pick ripe fruit and eat it the same day, then you are eating vitamin depleted fruit.
Bioflavonoids are a key part of the whole fruit. They help enhance vitamin C action. Bioflavonoids are known to support blood circulation and help decrease free-radical damage in the body. Because they are so good at placating anti-oxidative stress, they are able to help support inflammatory conditions in the body.
Super C from Young Living allows you to get all the benefits of vine-ripened fruit with all the beautiful bioflavonoids without traveling to a farm or becoming a orchard owner of 5 varieties of citrus. While some of you have access to these, the majority of us do not.
There are 2 Super C™ products to choose from from the Young Living supplement line; tablets and chewable. They are a bit different, so let’s break them down a bit.
Super C Chewables contains whole fruit powder from 5 different citrus fruits. These contain powerful bioflavonoids and are sourced from Lemon, Orange, Lime, Tangerine, and Grapefruit. Using the whole fruit that is juiced and then dried to form a powder ensures you get the full botanical synergy of the vitamins. The Chewable also contains Acerola fruit extract, Camu camu whole fruit powder, Rose hips fruit powder and Orange peal oil powder. This vitamin C supplement is a powerful way to support your health!
Super C™ Tablets contain a few extra ingredients such as Rutin flower bud power, Cayenne fruit powder, Orange peel oil, Tangerine rind oil, Grapefruit peel oil, Lemon peel oil, and Lemongrass leaf oil. It contains the added benefits of dicalcium phosphate, zinc, manganese, and potassium.
Rutin is a powerful antioxidant that can help support circulation and help strengthen and increase flexibility of blood vessels. Rutin is know to suppress oxidative stress.
Cayenne fruit (cayenne pepper) helps to boost metabolism and contains several other incredible benefits such as aids digestion, supports joints and muscles, and reduces blood sugar levels.
Essential oils in the Super C™ Tablets allow for better bioavailability of the entire supplement by helping to increase the bioflavonoid activity.
“Super C™ not only contains 1440% of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin C per serving, but it is also fortified with rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, and minerals to balance electrolytes and enhance the effectiveness and absorption of vitamin C.* The essential oils that are added may also increase bioflavonoid activity. Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins required by our bodies. The ingredients in Super C play a role in normal immune and circulatory functions, help to strengthen connective tissues, and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.* Because our bodies cannot manufacture vitamin C, we can benefit by consuming this powerful antioxidant daily.
For reinforcing immune strength, take 2 tablets daily. For maintenance, take 1 tablet daily. Best if taken before meals.
