Did You Know that Most Vitamin C Comes From GMO Corn and is Made in Chinese Chemical Plants?
So, you’ve decided to supplement your diet with extra vitamin C because you don’t think you’re getting enough, but you want to know where the brand you are considering purchasing actually comes from. Those are good instincts on your part, because the truth is, if you were planning on picking up a bottle of vitamin C from a local grocery store or online, chances are really good that the product you would have received would not have lived up to your expectations of high quality.
As noted by Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, lab science director of CWC Labs, and author of the new book, Food Forensics, most common supplements on the market today are filled with hidden toxins, despite the fact that they’re marketed as being “pure” and, sometimes, “organic.”
One of those is vitamin C:
Here’s another whopper that’s sure to open some eyes: Nearly all the “vitamin C” sold in vitamins across America right now is derived from GMO corn.
This means that many of the supplements sold at Whole Foods, the vitamins sold on Amazon.com, the pills at your local pharmacy, and especially the products at the grocery store are (nearly) all routinely made with genetically modified vitamin C. It’s typically called “ascorbic acid,” and nearly 100% of the ascorbic acid used in the natural products industry is derived from GMOs.
Sourcing non-GMO vitamin C requires you to go outside the United States. There is no existing supply chain of certified organic, non-GMO ascorbic acid available anywhere in America (at least not to my knowledge). You can’t even run batches of non-GMO ascorbic acid production in the USA because all the facilities are contaminated with residues of GM corn.
Rest assured that all those cheap “vitamin C” pills sold at retail are derived from genetically modified corn.
100 percent guaranteed clean
Later that same year, we also reported that some of those same commercial vitamin C supplements do little to protect you from winter colds and flu, and may actually be adverse to your health, because, again, they aren’t really vitamin C.
Most supplements being sold as “vitamin C” do not contain true, natural vitamin C at all, but is “ascorbic acid,” a synthetically manufactured chemical derived from glucose using a chemical process involving microorganisms, acetone – a dangerous solvent and sodium hypochlorite bleach.
Synthetic ascorbic acid does not have the same biological properties and therefore benefits as true vitamin C found for example in fruits, berries, vegetables and many other natural sources.
What makes biological vitamin C more effective is because when it occurs naturally – as in clean foods or as a clean supplement – it contains a number of other crucial elements like enzymes that make it much more available to the digestive system and the body as a whole.
Fortunately, there actually is a vitamin C that has been thoroughly vetted and meticulously tested by Adams and his CWC Labs team. And it’s guaranteed to be free of GMOs and many of the toxins that are found in products that are made in China.
You can help others
What’s more, when you purchase a bottle of it, you’re going to be doing someone else in need a huge favor. Through Adams’ Nutrition Rescue project, one bottle of clean vitamin C will be donated to those in need around the world for every bottle sold.
“As part of my ongoing mission to save lives and treat nutritional deficiency all around the world, I’m announcing a new initiative called “NUTRITION RESCUE.” It can not only vastly improve your own health; it can help save lives all across the globe,” he says on the project’s web page.
“The idea is very simple: We source the cleanest, non-GMO vitamin C from the United Kingdom and offer it to quality-conscious customers. Every bottle that’s purchased generates another bottle of vitamin C that gets donated to someone else in need. …
“With hundreds of millions of people around the world now malnourished and suffering from basic nutritional deficiencies, therapeutic-grade vitamin C is in desperate need all across the planet,” he continued.
