the Health Benefits of Real Vitamin C
from Acerola Cherry Powder
By Ben Kim, D.C.
If you want to be at your best, you need to have a reliable
source of real vitamin C in your diet on a regular basis.
Real vitamin C can be extremely helpful for:
Preventing hair loss
Promoting healthy teeth and gums
Protecting your skin and organs against premature aging
Promoting a strong immune system and preventing
frequent colds and infections
Easing unexplained pain and swelling of your joints
Preventing easy bleeding or bruising
Please note that I am writing about real
It's a shame that the great majority
of vitamin C supplements on the market are synthetic forms
of vitamin C.
And synthetic forms of vitamin C are not guaranteed to
provide any of the health benefits listed above. In fact,
I have come to believe that most synthetic forms of vitamin
C do little but tax your organs before being eliminated
through your urine. It's clear to me that they're not good
for your health and they're a waste of your resources.
So how do you know if the bottle sitting at your local
health food store or on your kitchen counter contains synthetic
vitamin C? Look at the list of ingredients. If it doesn't
contain real food like acerola cherry powder or amla berries,
it is almost certainly a synthetic form of vitamin C.
Most vitamin C and multivitamin supplements contain ascorbic
acid or ascorbate, which is the
outer ring that surrounds the real vitamin C complex. That's
right - real vitamin C is a complex
of several different factors, all of which must work together
to keep your teeth and gums healthy, prevent hair loss,
and prevent premature aging and disease.
Whole foods like acerola cherries and
amla berries come with the entire vitamin C complex which
can efficiently reach and nourish all of the cells of your
body, providing the health benefits listed above.
For three years now, I have been using and recommending
a super green food formula for promotion of optimal wellness.
Our super green food formula contains a small amount of
amla berry, which contains naturally occurring, real vitamin
At the request of many of our newsletter subscribers who
have a special need for larger doses of real vitamin C,
we have worked long and hard to add a new product to our
recommended health tools section. It's made out of acerola
cherry powder and comes in an amber glass jar with
a metal lid - the same type that our green food product
comes in for optimal nutrient preservation.
Our all-natural, real vitamin C product contains the highest
quality acerola cherry powder that we could find, which
makes it one of nature's most concentrated food sources
of real vitamin C.
Taking Real Vitamin C for Immune System Support
My wife has been using our real vitamin C product for the
past few years, in addition to taking our greens and Carlson
cod liver oil. She started taking this product because we
wanted to provide our babies with extra support for their
immune system. At our clinic and among friends and family
members, we observed how difficult it was for babies to
go through colds and other illnesses before their tiny bodies
had a chance to build immune system strength.
We felt that concentrated doses of real vitamin C would
be helpful in keeping our babies well. And we are extremely
thankful that both of our boys thrived during their first
year of life, and continue to grow and develop as strong
and healthy individuals. Both of our sons received all of
the health benefits of acerola cherries, along with our
greens, cod liver oil (fish oil in the summer), and a well
balanced diet through my wife's breast milk until they were
20 to 24 months old, and they continue to receive these
nutrients through their diet today.
Over the past year and a half, I have been recommending
acerola cherry powder to patients and guests of our clinic
for a variety of health conditions. More specifically, I
have found acerola cherry powder to be highly effective
for people who experience frequent infections,
dental problems, and chronic fatigue.
In working to provide a high quality source of real vitamin
C to our newsletter subscribers and guests of our clinic,
I had three specific goals in mind:
To provide the highest quality acerola cherry
powder available anywhere.
To provide it in an amber glass jar with a metal lid
for optimal nutrient preservation. I have found that
cheap plastic bottles are not as effective as glass
bottles are at keeping nutrients fresh and potent.
To provide it in as large a jar as possible
for maximum value. We always buy in bulk to save our
resources, and strive to provide the same great value
to our readers and guests.

Another important feature of this product is that you can
take much more than the recommended serving size of 1.5
teaspoon if your situation requires it. Because it is made
from real food - acerola cherries - and doesn't contain
any synthetic nutrients, you can take as much as you need
without any fear of toxicity.
Also, our acerola cherry powder is naturally buffered,
meaning that it is not highly acidic and
is just fine for people who find regular synthetic vitamin
C supplements too acidic.
The bottom line is this: if you want to include the best
quality source of real vitamin C that I know of in your
health-promoting lifestyle, I highly recommend that you
give this product a try. I am confident that you will find
it to be as effective as my family and clients have.
Please note: our shopping cart is designed
to give you real-time shipping costs from UPS for orders
in the States and USPS for orders from all other locations.
Both UPS and the USPS charge one basic fee to ship a package,
and then add small amounts for each additional item included
in the package.
For example, it costs approximately $10 to ship one bottle
of Dr. Ben Kim's Vitamin C via UPS to most locations in
the States. For two bottles, the cost goes up only a small
amount, to about $11 - $12. For three bottles, the shipping
cost is around $12 - $13. And so on and so forth.
In other words, if you can afford to do so, it makes most
sense to order more than one bottle at a time, as this will
provide you with a much lower per-bottle shipping cost.
This is why my family orders three to six bottles at a time.
Quotes From People Who Use Our Acerola Cherry Product:
"I also have tried this product and found it very
effective and easy to digest. It was interesting to notice
people my age (over 50) complaining about this and that
ailment and realizing that I did not have the same complaints.
I felt good and happy with loads of energy. Between taking
the acerola cherry powder and 100% whole food tablets, I
feel very good."
- J. Richer
"I use the acerola cherry powder in smoothies and
I love it. I haven't had a cold or sniffles since I started
using the vitamin C powder. This is the only thing I'm doing
differently, so I have to conclude that the powder is working."
- Kim Roush
"When I take this product, I remain free of current
cold or flu outbreaks in my area."

without it. Tastes pretty good also."

"Acerola cherry powder is a wonderful product and
I feel it helps offset the things I do to my body that I
shouldn't. I also make an incredible "detox" full
body and facial scrub using a couple tablespoons each of
Vitamin C power, Super Green Food powder and approx 1/2
cup of granulated Sea Salt mixed with a small amount of
water. Makes my skin feel great and incredibly seems to
take all body odor away for a couple days! I do this atleast
once a week."

- K. Mitchell
"I mix a spoonful in water along with the green food
powder. It is always settling to my stomach and I really
