Nutribiotic - Vitamin C Pharmaceutical Grade 1000 mg. - 250 Capsules
NutriBiotic Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamin C capsules deliver 100% pharmaceutical grade ascorbic acid in concentrations higher than can be found in food, while bieng hypoallergenic (free of all common food antigens). Vitamin C is an essential nutrient beneficial to the body's overall health. Since vitamin C is not produced by the body, it must be replenished daily.
These capsules provide vitamin C in a pure, pre-measured form. This potent, water-soluble nutrient is encapsulated to be convenient, easy to swallow, and rapidly dissolving. Capsule contents may be emptied into food or beverages if desired.
This was Dr. Linus Pauling's† preferred form of Vitamin C. When taken with meals, ascorbic acid can actually improve the uptake and utilization of other crucial vitamins and minerals.
NutriBiotic's ascorbic acid is produced in a 15 step process, and has a high solubility.
- Steps 1 thru 9 (Starch Hydrolysis): Vegetable starch is broken down into simple sugar (D-Glucose) by the action of heat and enzymes.
- Step 10 (Hydrogenation): D-Glucose is converted into D-Sorbitol.
- Step 11 (Fermentation): D Sorbitol is converted into L-Sorbose.
- Step 12 (Acetonation): L-Sorbose is combined with an acid at low temperatures.
- Step 13 (Oxidation): The product is then oxidized with a catalyst, acidified, washed and dried forming L-Gluconic Acid.
- Step 14 (Hydrolysis): L-Gluconic Acid is treated with hydrochloric acid forming crude ascorbic acid.
- Step 15 (Recrystallization): The crude ascorbic acid is filtered, purified and milled into a fine crystalline powder.
This product provides vitamin C in its simplest, purest, pre-measured form. This potent, pure, and 100% natural, water-soluble nutrient is encapsulated or tableted to be convenient, easy to swallow, and rapidly dissolving.
This was one of Dr. Linus Pauling's preferred forms of Vitamin C. When taken with meals, ascorbic acid can actually improve the uptake and utilization of other crucial vitamins and minerals.
Chlorella Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is Chlorella?
Chlorella is a single-celled freshwater green plant used as a whole food nutritional supplement. Because it is a whole food rather than a fractionalized extract or an isolated component, Chlorella contains all the beneficial components of the entire plant in naturally perfect balance. In addition to highly bio-available vitamins and minerals, Chlorella contains significant amounts of vegetable protein, beta carotene, and chlorophyll, known for its cleansing and purifying properties. Additionally, the hard cell wall (broken during the drying process) provides important dietary fiber and further aids in internal cleansing. Chlorella is related to Spirulina and Klamath Lake Blue Green Algae (often sold under the brand name of Super Blue-Green), all of which share the Green Foods category with things like wheat grass, barley grass, and the juices from these plants.
Why would anyone want to take Chlorella?
Chlorella is a nutrition powerhouse. Chlorella provides all the nutrients necessary to live, including high levels of vegetable protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, plus chlorophyll. Chlorella is one of the most concentrated sources of beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, and zinc available. The chlorophyll content is important as a nutrient because it has potent detoxifying properties. Additionally, chlorophyll bears a molecular structure identical to that of human blood, with the exception of one atom. Red blood cells have an iron molecule whereas chlorophyll has a magnesium molecule. Because of the structural similarities, chlorophyll has the ability to carry oxygen directly into the blood stream. Many people who use green food supplements regularly report substantial increases in energy and overall well-being. Also, consumption of green foods can dramatically improve the tone and texture of the skin.
On your label you call your product CGF Chlorella. What does that mean?
CGF stands for Chlorella Growth Factor. Blue-green algae has the unique ability to withstand environmental stress and repair itself.
How does Chlorella compare nutritionally to other blue-green algae, especially Spirulina?
They are virtually identical. The two largest differences are fiber content (Chlorella contains more fiber than Spirulina due to its hard cell wall) and price. Chlorella is generally less expensive than other blue-green algae.
How is Chlorella grown?
Chlorella is farmed. It is cultivated in enormous outdoor tanks filled with pure water and nutrients. The water is then inoculated with Chlorella which multiplies rapidly in the warm sun. When the Chlorella is harvested, it is drained of water and then put through a patented low-temperature drying process. This process is gentle enough to preserve the nutritional value of the food and still crack the hard cellulose wall which surrounds each cell. This cracking of the wall enables us to digest and utilize the nutrients inside.
In 1980, after nearly ten years in the nutritional supplement industry, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of the world's only two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., NutriBiotic began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. NutriBiotic felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, they found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. NutriBiotic Rice Protein powder meets that need without soy, milk, egg, wheat or yeast.
In 1987 NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of their labors in their range of products containing Citricidal, including their skin cleansers, shower gel and bubble bath, dental gel, deodorant stick, foot powder, multi-purpose liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.
At NutriBiotic, they stand committed to providing the very best for you and your family and are pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.
