VITAMIN C

POWDERS & CAPSULES

LIDTKE’S Berry C is real, wild berries and fruits that have been instantly freeze-dried and powdered. An all natural fruit & berry blend available in three varieties:

  • Berry C Sweet Powder
    Acerola, luo han guo fruit, cranberry, blueberry, and strawberry blend.
  • Berry C Tart Powder
    Amla berry, maqui berry, acerola, cranberry, blueberry, and strawberry blend.
  • Berry C Capsules
    Acerola, luo han guo fruit, cranberry, blueberry, and strawberry blend.

Many Vitamin C products use synthetic ascorbic acid, which is produced using genetically mutated strains of bacteria. Through a multi-step process, glucose is typically refined from non-GMO cassava root or GMO corn, and then fermented in two steps with bacteria that has been mutated by ultraviolet irradiation. [1] LIDTKE Berry C products are 100% pure from actual fruit and berries increasing natual bioavailability. [2]

AMLA BERRIES

Also known as gooseberries, these bright green berries are abundant in vitamin C. Just five fresh amla berries contain 100% of the daily value of Vitamin C.

Studies have shown that amla berries contain higher amounts of polyphenols like gallic acid and ellagic acid.[3] Ellagic acid enhances the activity of certain detoxification enzymes in the liver, while both speed of the removal of dangerous substances from the body.

Another study looked at the antioxidant capacity of 3,100 different foods, beverages, spices, and herbs and found that no other berry had as much antioxidant capacity as amla berry.[4]

CRANBERRIES

Cranberries are a familiar food to many in the form of Cranberry sauce. However, if you look closely at the label you will notice that Cranberry sauce is “not a significant source of Vitamin C.” The reason being heat destroys Vitamin C, however studies comparing fresh and freeze-dried fruits have shown no significant effect on Vitamin C content.[5]

One particular benefit of cranberries to the immune system is their ability to weaken the cell wall of bacteria, assisting the body to destroy them.[6] This is a major reason why cranberries have been traditionally used to support the urinary tract, which is vulnerable to bacterial growth. [6]

LUO HAN GUO FRUIT

Luo han guo (Monk fruit) is a unique and highly prized fruit that grows in the remote regions of China. A refined extract from this fruit is used as an alternative sweetener.

As a sweetener it no longer contains fructose or glucose. Instead, the sweetness comes from antioxidants called mogrosides, making monk fruit sweetener about 100 times sweeter than sugar. Unlike sugar, it does not provide calories and does not raise blood sugar, making it suitable for use by diabetics. [7, 8]

MAQUI BERRIES

Maqui berries are renown for their Anthocyanin content. Many studies have demonstrated the beneficial health effects of anthocyanin extracts, especially antioxidation and anti-inflammatory effects.[9] The most prominent anthocyanin in Maqui is Delphinidin, which accounts for over one-third of all anthocyanin. In the studies, Delphinidin increased the glutathione levels inside cells, increasing cell viability. [9]

Glutathione plays a major role in the inflammatory response of the immune system, in particular with inflammation of the lungs.[10] Glutathione is also essential for T-lymphocyte proliferation and dendritic cell functions, among others. [10]

ACEROLA CHERRIES

In addition to being a very concentrated source of Vitamin C (up to 100 times that of a lemon), acerola is one of the richest natural sources of ascorbic acid and contains a plethora of phytonutrients like carotenoids phenolics, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. [11] One study has found that the form of Vitamin C found in acerola is better absorbed by humans than synthetic ascorbic acid. [11]

In its natural setting, Vitamin C never exists as pure ascorbic acid, but is complexed with various enzymes and bioflavinoids such as rutin. [12] Not only is the complex better absorbed, but another study established “the combination of ascorbic acid and rutin had higher antioxidant properties compared to the activity of the single compound alone.”[12]

BLUEBERRIES

In many ways blueberries have many of the same benefits as maqui berries. When compared side by side, maqui berries seem to outshine blueberries, but there are far more studies on blueberries with countless established health benefits that we cannot currently attribute to maqui berries.

One such benefit is how blueberries support the growth of Bifidobecteria in the intestinal microbiota. These beneficial bacteria interact with human immune cells and to modulate specific pathways including T cell-mediated immune responses.[13]

STRAWBERRIES

Strawberries are unique among berries for having their seeds on the outside. Most berries also do not come with little green leaves attached at the top. These differences in strawberries are related to their botanical difference which also shows them having higher levels of nitrates, most of which is in the leaves and some of which makes it into freeze-dried strawberry powder.

One study on freeze-dried strawberry powder, like that used in Berry C, found a special support of cardiovascular health, which is attributed to the nitrates.[15] Aside from this, strawberries also share in common many of the benefits noted in other berries, and particularly its contribution to ellagic acid.
