Sonne's Natural Source Vitamin C No. 17
Natural Source Vitamin C #17 by Sonne's
Sonne's Natural Source Vitamin C tablets contain natural vitamin C derived from dehydrated juice of the acerola berry and wild spanish orange. These food sources provide the vitamin C complex (i.e., bioflavonoids and other synergistic nutrients), factors not present in supplements that use ascorbic acid (chemical form of vitamin C). Sonne's Natural Source Vitamin C has a 100 mg equivalent of ascorbic acid per serving, supplying 110% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). However, the natural synergy of the vitamin C complex and bioflavonoids provides much more powerful antioxidant activity than synthetic vitamin C (ascorbic acid) does alone.
Vitamin C plays an essential role in the formation of collagen, connective tissue that is required for normal maintenance, growth, repair, and healing of living tissues. Sonne's Natural Source Vitamin C also functions as an antioxidant, and protects other antioxidants such as selenoproteins, glutathione, and vitamin E from becoming oxidized (inactivated) in the body. Since vitamin C is constantly being utilized, it should be taken in small repeated doses throughout the day. Sonne's chewable tablets are ideal for this purpose, providing easy and rapid absorption of the natural vitamin C complex. Because acerola berry and wild spanish orange are naturally sour and bitter, Sonne's added powdered blackstrap molasses and honey for a tart but pleasant taste. The Acerola Cherry (officially called a berry) is a red cherry-like tropical fruit grown on berry-like bushes. It is considered one of the best and most potent sources of natural vitamin C, with more ascorbic acid per ounce of juice than most fruits. Wild Spanish Orange is another very potent, natural source of the vitamin C complex. These tablets are made from fruit sources in their natural state, with all their natural accompanying synergists.
Many eminent nutritionists, physicians and scientists (including the late Linus Pauling) recommend that large amounts of vitamin C be added to the ordinary diet. Vitamin C can help prevent infection. (The U.S. Department of Agriculture has called vitamin C an "anti-infection vitamin.") Sonne's Natural Source Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that can protect cells from damage by ree radicals. In the absence of sufficient vitamin C, blood capillaries become fragile, and are prone to rupture. The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance for adult males is 90 mg, but much higher amounts may be desirable. Sonne's Natural Source Vitamin C is water-soluble so all excess vitamin C is excreted through the urine. It is interesting to note that many people experience burning when they urinate after taking large doses (1g or more) of ascorbic acid. Sonne's had no such experiences with their natural product. Ascorbic acid (synthetic vitamin C) -vs- Natural vitamin C
Ascorbic acid is not as effective. In a 1952 issue of Nature, an article reported an experiment concerning a disease involving fragility of blood vessel walls. The researchers treated one group of laboratory animals with green peppers (known for its high content of vitamin C), and a second group with ascorbic acid (synthetic vitamin C). The disease was cured only by the green peppers and not by the ascorbic acid. Synthetic vitamins have certain definite therapeutic values in severe cases under a doctor´s supervision, but in our humble opinion they should not be considered a food for continued daily consumption.

Sonne´s Organic Foods, Inc. was founded in 1946 to produce and distribute a superior line of pure and natural vitamins, minerals, and internal cleansing aids to help people achieve their optimal health. The company’s founder, Victor Earl Irons, was a 1919 Yale Graduate and nationally renowned nutritionist and health freedom fighter. Before Mr. Irons became interested in health, he was diagnosed with an "incurable" arthritic disease that causes bending of the spine. Using natural methods of fasting, cleansing, and eating raw food, he was able to remove every symptom of this "incurable disease." It was this personal experience that taught Mr. Irons the benefit in following Nature´s principles. Before starting our company, he took personal interest in lecturing to community o
