I've been very naive in regards to a certain supplement being readily ingested by people looking to boost their immune system. I've been a huge proponent of getting vitamin C from a raw food source for some time. And when that isn't possible, using a raw food derived form of vitamin C that contains the full spectrum of the powerful immune defense booster
However i've been adding a powdered form of ascorbic acid to smoothies lately, despite the fact that it isn't the full spectrum C. And i'm finally waking up to what this substance is actually doing and what it is actually derived from
It is killing good bacteria in the gut, because it can't differentiate the good from the bad. It is also derived from corn, which as we know is one of the most heavily GMO'd crops on the market today. And that orange juice you're drinking...? It was pasteurized, which breaks down the naturally occurring vitamin C.
Basically...if you're looking to supplement with vitamin C, use raw food sources or a supplement using food derived vitamin C like Mega Food or Vitamin Code Raw Vitamins, (or any other brand you're aware of)
