Ramiel Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay, created the Traditional Foods Market company in response to “health food” supplements full of sugars and additives and lacking the nutrients present in whole foods and pasture-fed animal ingredients. The supplements from Traditional Foods Market embody strict standards for safety and purity, and are processed using traditional methods, with no sweeteners or fillers. Using organic, humanely-raised, high quality ingredients, Ramiel Nagel has created and tested a line of nutrient dense supplements that are better for you and your children than many of the products you’ll find at your pharmacy or health food store.
Fight Colds and Flu, and More!
As we head into winter, one of our new products from Traditional Foods Market, True Whole Food Vitamin C, can provide vital immune support and improved health. Symptoms of inadequate vitamin C intake include increased susceptibility to illness and infections, poor wound healing, bruising easily, dry skin and hair, pain or swelling of the joints, nose bleeds, anemia, fatigue, depression, and weight gain. Low vitamin C can also lead to oral health problems such as inflamed or bleeding gums, gingivitis, loose teeth, and weak tooth enamel. Vitamin C, as an antioxidant which limits and reverses free radical damage and oxidative stress, may also play a key role in:
- Reducing risk of cardiovascular disease
- Preventing and treating cancer
- Slowing or preventing macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts
- Preventing colds, particularly in the elderly and in those who exercise heavily, such as marathon runners and skiers
- Limiting UV damage from the sun and eliminating sun spots and wrinkles
- Avoiding diseases of malnutrition (such as scurvy) in adults who eat limited diets and children who are picky eaters
In those with anemia or iron deficiency, vitamin C should be taken along with iron-rich foods or supplements to increase the body’s absorption of iron.
Boost Your Vitamin C Intake
Food sources of vitamin C include oranges, red and green peppers, grapefruit, kiwi, and broccoli. However, you’d have to eat 16 oranges to get the equivalent vitamin C in just one teaspoon of Whole Food Vitamin C. That’s a lot of extra sugar and calories! Whole Food Vitamin C, is made of whole organic acerola cherries, retaining the entire vitamin C complex. The vitamin C is not isolated or synthesized; all the nutrients in Whole Food Vitamin C work together to benefit your health.
Vitamin C is safe even in high amounts, because it is water soluble and any excess beyond what the body needs is excreted in urine. This makes overdose highly unlikely, although some people may experience loose bowels or upset stomach by consuming too much too quickly. The recommended dose of Whole Food Vitamin C is 1/4 teaspoon twice daily, and the powder tastes great alone or mixed into water, juice, or smoothies.
