Why Choose Pure Radiance C?
Pure Radiance C offers so much more than your typical, synthetic vitamin C.
We've gone to great lengths to deliver a product with the magnificent synergy of whole food vitamin C — something that could never be chemically recreated in a laboratory. On top of that, they've scoured the globe for pure, wildcrafted, and sustainable sources of every single one of their meticulously selected ingredients that comprise the magic that is Pure Radiance C. The Synergy Company's devotion to creating the finest vitamin C product on the planet translates into better health for all of you! And that's their ultimate goal.
Pure Radiance C is gentle yet potent, and perfectly balanced for absorption.
Just like a bowl of fresh berries, their vitamin C is gentle on your stomach, incredibly bioavailable, and in a form exactly as nature intended. Plus, it is created without any harmful additives, fillers, corn, gluten, GMOs, and, of course, synthetic ascorbic acid megadoses that can all be hard on your system. From their point of view, potency of a nutrient has less to do with the number of milligrams on a supplement label, and more to do with how your body recognizes, utilizes it, and most importantly, benefits from it.
Pure Radiance C contains a myriad of valuable phytonutrients proven by science.
Even Dr. Szent-Györgyi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in the 1930s for identifying vitamin C and its powerful health role, knew then that it was vastly superior to obtain vitamin C in its natural food state, not as a fraction of the whole. But somehow this part of his research was left in the dust until recently. Studies now confirm that the benefits they associate with vitamin C rich foods come not only from the vitamin C, but also from all the other goodies that accompany it — just like those found in Pure Radiance C.
The Synergy Company Pure Radiance C Frequently Asked Questions
How is whole-food vitamin C different from synthetic vitamin C?
In nature, vitamins never exist as single components that act in isolation. Vitamins are composed of numerous cofactors that work together in synergy to nourish the body and produce health benefits. Vitamins that occur naturally in whole foods include all these essential cofactors. However, the majority of vitamins on the market today are synthetic vitamins, which are only isolated portions of the whole. Vitamin C is a good example. Most other vitamin C supplements contain only synthesized ascorbic acid, often made from genetically modified corn. Pure Radiance C is completely different — it is created from 100% natural fruits, berries, and whole-food sources of vitamin C. Along with its vitamin C-rich camu camu and acerola berries, it also contains a special blend of several other wildcrafted berries, rose hips, lemon peel, and sprouts that contribute highly beneficial cofactors such as bioflavonoids, quercetin, hesperiden, anthocyanins, proanthocyanins, and rutin. These cofactors are crucial for your body to obtain the full benefits of whole-food vitamin C.
How and why is whole-food vitamin C superior to synthetic vitamin C?
While biochemically speaking natural, whole-food vitamin C and synthetic ascorbic acid are essentially indistinguishable from one another, this is where the similarities end. The significant advantages of taking a truly natural, whole-food vitamin C go far beyond the ascorbic acid portion of the vitamin. Natural, food-form vitamin C provides your body with much more than just ascorbic acid. For example, their bodies require many of the phytonutrients and compounds that only accompany natural vitamin C (flavonoids, flavanols, polyphenols, carotenoids, lignans, and many more) to manufacture their collagen, which is the natural glue that holds your skin, bones, and body together. Synthetic, isolated ascorbic acid does not provide all the pieces of the puzzle required to manufacture not only collagen but so many other important compounds as well. As 100% whole-food vitamin C, Pure Radiance C provides all of these essential components in addition to an abundance of natural vitamin C.
Is Pure Radiance C acidic?
No, it's not. Unlike isolated and synthetic ascorbic acid (which is the form of vitamin C found in nearly all other vitamin C supplements), the berries of Pure Radiance C are very gentle on your stomach.
Is the natural vitamin C in your Pure Radiance C more concentrated than the ascorbic acid in synthetic vitamin C?
Comparing amounts of synthetic ascorbic acid to the natural, whole-food vitamin C in Pure Radiance C is difficult because they are not really the same thing. The Synergy Company's vitamin C is so much more than synthetic, isolated ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is always connected to a multitude of other highly beneficial compounds wherever it is found in food sources. The health benefits they associate with vitamin C come not only from ascorbic acid, but also from the synergistic interaction of numerous phytonutrients, including bioflavonoids, polyphenols, catechins, anthocyanins, rutin, enzymes, and tyrosinase. As such, vitamin C from whole-food sources has so much more to offer than isolated, synthetic ascorbic acid.
How does Pure Radiance C powder taste?
The camu and acerola berries are harvested just before they are ripe, to obtain the highest content of natural vitamin C. Therefore, the resulting powder is naturally tart, not sweet. Nearly all their customers, who mix the powder in water or juice, tell us they enjoy the taste.!
About The Synergy Company
The Synergy Company's Ingredient Story
A formula can only be as good as each of its ingredients. The Synergy Company know that the power of their finished products relies upon absolutely every component within it being of the highest caliber: pure, bioactive, potent, alive — with no compromises whatsoever.
Feel The Synergy
The Synergy Company work extraordinarily hard to ensure the utmost quality of their ingredients, but there's something extra special they strive for. The Synergy Company call it Synergy, of course!
When everything comes together in perfect purity, potency, and harmony, Synergy happens and the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts. The Synergy Company's primary mission is to make sure this happens every single time so that the difference is palpable and everyone can feel it.
Synergized = Energized
So how do they do it? The Synergy Company's proprietary Synergized protocol is what makes their whole-food ingredients the most respected in the world. The big secret to how and what they do comes down to something simple, but powerful: 100% control. As the old adage says, if you want something done just right, it's best to do it yourself.
Every one of the organic whole-food ingredients they use in their supplements has unique, health-supporting nutrients. These are called phytonutrients and they're best described as nature's treasure chest. You can rest assured that every ingredient has successfully gone through all of their Synergized steps and that all of its healthful phytonutrients are optimally protected. So many other companies fail to understand that even one misstep or compromise along the way diminishes the essence of what makes the plants so valuable for us all.
The Importance of Keepin' It Cold
While all of the steps in their Synergized system are critical, one of the most important is how the ingredient is taken from a fresh, live plant to a dried powder to be used in their products. The key to preserving the life force and nutritional benefits of a fresh ingredient is to use the perfect low-temp drying and processing method.
There is no one size fits all approach to the drying process. The common denominator is the use of low temperatures in an environment that is free of oxygen, light, and all elements that have the potential to destroy the vital nutrients within an ingredient. This is in sharp contrast to the much cheaper and nutrient destructive processes like high-heat spray drying and drum drying utilized by most other companies. These methods literally blast out most of the important goodies within and leave the finished product void of vibrant color, and void of taste, nutritional potency, and life force.
It's not enough to just dry the ingredient under perfect conditions. Because milling can also generate heat, they utilize cryo (cooled) milling machines when converting their dried ingredients into fine powders. Then, they are stored in ideal conditions, which is where their oxygen-free and UV protective glass bottle and climate controlled warehouse storage come into play. All of these steps ensure that the precious cargo inside is protected.
Testing, Testing, and More Testing
The Synergy Company don't just assume that their rigorous Synergized protocol results in high quality ingredients. The Synergy Company proves it with testing. The Synergy Company tests for things they don't want in their ingredients, like heavy metals, microbes, pesticide and solvent residues, gluten, dairy and anything else that could compromise their products. The Synergy Company's standards are extraordinarily high, so high that it takes us years to develop a new product because of all the research needed to make it perfect.
The Synergy Company also tests for what they do want in their ingredients like vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and active compounds. But they don't stop there. After all their ingredients are formulated into a finished supplement, they do it again! Every lot of finished product is again tested for heavy metals, microbes, gluten, radiation, and nutrient levels to ensure they meet Synergy's strict standards. And they pass along many of these results to you through their Certificate of Compliance ("C of C") Program, which verifies their final testing. You will find these certificates updated on each of their product pages.
The Synergy Company's ultimate goal has always been to ensure that the supplements you choose will make a genuine contribution to your good health and well-being. At the end of the day, it's all about the synergy of ingredients that goes into their bottles on their quest for a superior product.
The Synergy Company's Organic Commitment
The Synergy Company's commitment to organic goes back to the very beginnings of The Synergy Company. Long before there were any USDA government programs to classify and support organic agriculture, Mitchell May, the founder of The Synergy Company, understood the benefits to be gained from using organically grown ingredients in their nutritional supplements.
Mitchell initially engaged a handful of small family farms to cultivate and process the specialized organic plants that were needed to ensure both the potency and purity of his Pure Synergy Superfood. Today, they continue this important mission with hundreds of organically certified ingredients and thousands of acres converted to organic agriculture with their support. Synergy is known in the industry as a leader and innovator when it comes to organic. When something they need doesn't exist in an organic form, they make it ourselves!
How Do I Know It's Really Organic?
"Certified Organic" means the item has been grown according to strict USDA uniform standards, which are verified by independent state and/or private organizations and revolve around the use of sustainable management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.thesynergycompany_otcoWhen you see the USDA symbol or OTCO Certified Organic symbol associated with one of their products or ingredients, it indicates its status as "certified organic" or "made with organic ingredients" under the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). The Synergy Company's licensed certifier, Oregon Tilth, audits and verifies that the ingredients have been grown and the product processed in full accordance with the strict USDA organic standards, which revolve around the use of safe and sustainable practices to restore, maintain, and enhance ecological harmony. These standards forbid the use of chemical and artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, additives, GMOs, or synthetics of any kind. The Synergy Company feel that "going organic" is the only way to go for both the health of you and the health of their planet.

The Synergy Company's Eco-Friendly Mission
"The Synergy Company is founded on the premise that good faith, integrity, and environmental responsibility are eminently compatible with good business. "
Mitchell May, Founder & Chairman, The Synergy Company
The Synergy Company see a world where everything is connected. The Synergy Company know that what they do has a ripple effect downstream. And it is their belief that a business should be responsible for minimizing these ripples, not creating bigger waves.
From their founding, the commitment to implement sustainable, environmentally sound ways of doing business has been an integral way of thinking here at Synergy. Looking out their windows at the dramatic red rock mesas and snow-capped mountains that make Moab such a special place to live and work is a constant reminder that they need to continually find new ways to protect and respect their ecosystems.
Here are some examples of how they've tackled this challenge.
Custom-Built Green Facilities
The construction of their own certified organic, customized facilities here in Moab literally laid the foundation for their eco-friendly mission of sustainability. The decision to build their own facilities allowed us to incorporate low-impact and sustainable technologies into all aspects of their operations. From the selection of xeriscaping (water-conserving landscaping), to low-flow toilets, to energy-efficient equipment, to automatic light sensors, to passive solar orientation, they've taken every measure to make their operations lean and green!
Blue Sky Wind Power
It takes a considerable amount of energy to manufacture, store, and distribute their products. The Synergy Company are proud to say that Synergy was the first company in Utah to convert 100% of their electricity usage to wind power, a renewable, non-polluting source of energy. At the same time, they also helped organize a citywide initiative here in Moab to promote participation in the "Blue Sky Wind Power." The Synergy Company succeeded beyond everyone's expectation in helping to convert 13% of Moab's energy users to renewable sources, designating Moab as the first Green Power Community in America by the EPA (2004).
Support for Organic Agriculture
Perhaps one of their most significant environmental contributions has been their decision to relentlessly grow, source, and promote the development of organic, non-GMO ingredients for their products. This has served as the cornerstone of their eco-friendly mission of sustainability since their very first days as a company. By supporting organic farming practices, they not only reduce the depletion of resources but they revive their planet's nutrient-rich soils. And while The Synergy Company's commitment to organics may have started out small, today several thousand acres of organic cropland are dedicated to the cultivation of their ingredients.
Offsetting The Synergy Company's Footprint: Plant-It 2020
Opting to use wind power for their Moab facilities has brought lots of energy-saving benefits, but it only addresses a portion of the overall carbon footprint associated with their full scope of business activities.
One way they offset the impact of these activities is to plant trees! In cooperation with Plant-It 2020 (started by the late singer John Denver), they created SynerTrees many years ago — a reforestation program to annually plant indigenous trees in the United States. Every year, they donate money to this program to help plant trees as part of their effort to offset their carbon footprint.
"SuperPure means safe. Safe for their customers, safe for their workers, safe for their environment, and safe for their world."— Mitchell May, Founder.
From their very founding over 25 years ago, they made it their mission to only use safe, pure, eco-friendly and organic processing and manufacturing in everything they do (no exceptions). The Synergy Company's unique and exclusive SuperPure process creates products with maximum efficacy, potency, safety, and purity that are healthier for you and healthier for the planet. One of the industry's darkest and best-kept secrets is that many companies use cheap, potentially toxic, and environmentally damaging chemicals and solvents in their processing. At Synergy, they 100% reject all such detrimental practices and instead embrace only the purest, safest methods possible.
The Synergy Company's Eco-Packaging: More Eco Than Ever
In their ongoing commitment to protect both their precious planet and your valuable Synergy cargo, they keep making their packaging and shipping solution even better. The Synergy Company exclusively use 100% recycled and recyclable padded eco-envelopes and packing paper to keep your Synergy cargo snug and safe (which is still bottled in recyclable glass to preserve freshness and potency). This condensed packaging also means they can use even smaller shipping boxes for less environmental impact. All of their shipping and packaging materials are 100% recycled, recyclable, and reusable. Even their packaging tape is biodegradable. The Synergy Company do this because they believe their planet deserves 100%!
Everyday Choices Add Up
Every day at The Synergy Company for every task they perform, they ask ourselves if a more eco-friendly way to perform that task exists. Not surprisingly, the answer is very often "Yes!"
Along with the larger steps already noted, here are a few of the smaller, yet still significant, steps they've taken to lessen their footprint:
- The Synergy Company use only 100% biodegradable and organic-compliant cleaning agents
- The Synergy Company use only vegetable-based inks and water-based coatings for their printed materials
- The Synergy Company use only glass bottles, which are easily recyclable, for their products
- The Synergy Company have an extensive in-house recycling program for all their paper, plastic, glass, and metal products
- The Synergy Company use only organic cotton on their bottling line
- The Synergy Company never use ingredients that have been genetically modified or are irradiated
- The Synergy Company never use any chemical processing aids in any of their products
- The Synergy Company use only zero-VOC paint that meets the USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards
The Synergy Company - Giving Back
A business doesn't exist inside a bubble. It has a deep, multifaceted connection to the community that provides it with the employees, resources, and support that it needs to flourish.
This is especially true for The Synergy Company. The Synergy Company are located in the small, rural town of Moab, Utah where the unemployment rate is higher than the state average. The Synergy Company's company has grown tremendously since its founding and has become one of the largest full-time, private employers in their small town of less than 6,000 people. And while many business experts and financial advisors would tell us they would be even more successful and profitable if they moved their facilities to a larger city location that might be more economically favorable to conducting business, they would never consider such a thing. The reason is simple. The Synergy Company deeply care about their neighbors and their community, and they also know they owe much of their success to the dedication and hard work of their family of Moab employees. Unlike so many companies today, they feel a very real responsibility to their employees, and they both honor and reward their service to us with their continued commitment to them, and their commitment to remaining in this locale as they grow.
The Synergy Company's Focus is Local
To show their appreciation for their local community, The Synergy Company issues annual donations, grants, and sponsorships to many locally based organizations and nonprofits. The Synergy Company have a "Community Giving" team dedicated to their local Giving Back mission, which includes their Employee's Choice program where their company makes a meaningful donation on behalf of each and every employee to a local nonprofit of their choice. Here's a list of local organizations receiving Synergy's heartfelt thanks and support:
- Wabi Sabi Community Meals Program
- Interact Club
- BEACON Afterschool
- Grand Area Mentoring
- Moab Free Health Clinic
- Grand County Family Support Center
- Reality Town - Grand County Middle School
- KZMU Community Radio
- Moab Senior Games
- Canyonlands Recycling Center
- Grand County Education Foundation
- Grand County Hospice
- Grand County Humane Society
- Moab Valley Multicultural Center
- Seekhaven Women's Shelter
- Youth Garden Project
- Grand County High School Athletic Programs
Although they tend to focus their giving on their local community that has given us so much, over the years they have also supported several international humanitarian and cultural programs. In 2011, they donated over $1.6 million of their Pure Synergy Superfood to Japan in the wake of their devastating earthquake and tsunami. Read more about this global outreach. The Synergy Company define "giving back" as both a responsibility and a privilege. The Synergy Company wouldn't be where they are today without the helping hands of the community that surrounds us and embraces us.
