Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that cannot be produced by the body and, therefore, must be replenished daily. Vitamin C has several beneficial purposes including developing and maintaining healthy skin and bones and plays important roles in many biochemical reactions. Vitamin C provides support to the body's immune system by supporting cells against oxidative stresses. Additionally, vitamin C enhances the body's ability to absorb these important electrolyte minerals.

Electro-C Powder Information
NutriBiotic Ascorbic Acid Powder, used in Electro-C, has a high solubility, which makes it easy to mix into water or beverages. The manufacturing procedure for the ascorbic acid in the Electro-C involves 15 steps:
- 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.
The NutriBiotic Story
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., they began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. They 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. Their 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.
The folks at NutriBiotic 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.
