For too long the “natural” health industry has been
promoting vitamin C from inferior supplements processed with petroleum derivatives
or refined sugars. Instead of the synthetic forms, only the whole Vitamin C
complex should be consumed. Synthetic forms of Vitamin C have even been associated
with certain health risks, including heart disease, miscarriage and stillbirths.
In contrast, natural whole food vitamin C is safer and more health-enhancing.
Isolated ascorbic acid synthetic supplements should never be consumed. These
are made by processing a source material with acetone and have no naturally
occurring bioflavonoids. Out vitamin C raw food source contains wild camu camu
berries from the Amazon, acerola cherry, rhus coriaria, and wild rose hip. All
of these are sun-dried in remote forests, which preserves all of the natural vitamin C and bioflavonoids.
The camu camu berry is one of the richest sources of naturally
occurring vitamin C in the world, which is why North American Herb & Spice
sourced this rare berry from the Amazon. The camu camu is an amazing fruit that
contains nearly 30 more times vitamin C than an orange. It contains the whole
vitamin C complex, which consists of vitamin C in a synergistic blend with bioflavonoids
and trace minerals. The acerola cherry powder is also a vitamin C powerhouse,
containing rich amounts of natural Vitamin C. Acerola cherry is also a source
of naturally occurring vitamin A.
Rhus coriaria and bioflavonoid-rich rose hip powder are the
final ingredients in this formulation. The rose hip, like the other ingredients,
is loaded with vitamin C, along with vitamins A, D, and E. These components
are a great enhancement to an already superb supplement.
Because Purely-C is in a very bioavailable form, it is a great
way to get your daily amount of vitamin C. Low-dose, natural vitamin C is the
non-chemical way to consume C, and the natural form is easier to absorb and
more powerful than the synthetic. Purely-C contains no synthetic vitamin C.
Directions: Take two or more capsules daily
with meals. Open capsule and mix with food or juice. May be added to smoothies.
Natural vitamin C is not exactly the same as the synthetic.
This has been demonstrated by research from the renowned scientist Dr. Szent
Gyorgi, two-time Nobel prize winner. Gyorgi was perhaps the first to discover
the immense value of vitamin C in reversing illness. Yet, the vitamin C he initially
administered was not the type used today. He used crude, natural vitamin C to
eradicate symptoms such as joint pain, swelling, and weakness and to reverse
disease. After relying on the natural C plus bioflavonoids, Gyorgi experimented
with the synthetic type, but it failed to work. He concluded that only natural
or unprocessed vitamin C extract, complete with various synergistic components
(like the flavonoids), was effective for rebuilding human health. Modern research
shows that natural vitamin C is indeed different, both electrically and in its
Purely-C is perhaps the only totally natural source vitamin
C plus flavonoid supplement available on the market. No chemicals of any type
are used in its manufacture. For instance, bioflavonoids are often extracted
with solvents like hexane and alcohol; our bioflavonoids are from the pure,
complete food. No chemicals are used.
Purely-C is the richest type in bioflavonoids and noncitrus,
which contains vitamin C and flavonoids from non-citrus sources. Each type contains
a unique array of naturally occurring flavonoids and vitamin C molecules from
totally natural sources.
Purely-C contains various tannic acids, malic acid, gallic acid,
and ellagic acid from natural mountain berry and wild strawberry leaves, plus
resveratrol from mountain grown red sour grapes. The natural vitamin C is from
wild strawberry leaves, red grape powder, mountain berry (Rhus), acerola cherry,
and rose hip powder. Wild strawberry leaves also provide natural potassium,
silica and magnesium.
North American Herb and Spice Mission
North American Herb and
Spice is not only to educate the public on the powers of raw whole foods,
but to create a morale standard for the way we nourish our bodies. Our beliefs
intertwine with movements across the globe that advocate the conservation
of our natural resources and maintain the delicate balance of nature. For
this we align ourselves and support causes that set a high morale standard
for the respect of nature and our health. We are opposed to the use of genetically
modified organisms in our food. We believe in the power of raw foods, and
the power that uncooked vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and enzymes posses.
We believe that nature intended for our bodies to depend on natural-source
vitamins and minerals, not synthetics. It is these among other ideals that
have fueled our pursuit for a happier and healthier human race.
Wild handpicked spices
such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone of our product
line. The phenolic compounds found in these spices have been revered since
antiquity for their powerful effects. These whole, raw spices are steam distilled
using the same processes used for generations, capturing the concentrated
essential oil at often astounding ratios. These concentrated spice oils are
then emulsified in extra virgin olive oil at the perfect ratio for power and
palatability. Through this proprietary process invented by our founder Ms.
Gray, the spice extract market in the United States was revived after problems
with adulteration hindered its growth in the early 1950s. The end result was
the purest, most powerful spice extracts made from the purest ingredients
free from pesticides, chemicals, and solvents.
Wild oregano is handpicked
by villagers in the most remote mountainous regions of the Mediterranean.
This ensures the impeccable purity and quality of the essential oils we provide.
When the wild spice and herbs are steam distilled to extract the powerful
essential oils, it is done with pure, underground spring waters. This is a
technique used by the indigenous peoples of the region for centuries. After
the steam distillation process is complete, the essential oils are then tested
to ensure the phytochemical markers are within our expectations. When the
essential oils are emulsified, it is in organic extra virgin olive oil, which
by itself possesses powerful nutritive properties. We never adulterate our
products with fillers, chemicals, or solvents. North American Herb and Spice’s
early challenges have led to the development of not only the most unique variety
of products in the world, but also a standard for quality second to none.
North American Herb and
Spice was founded in 1999 by Judy Kay Gray, MS with the idea that nourishment
from raw whole foods is the key to maintaining optimal health. Today those
founding ideals serve as the foundation for more than 130 unique products,
formulations that are highly nourishing and naturally powerful. Throughout
the years North American Herb and Spice has exemplified quality in all the
ingredients used to formulate its products. From the remote mountains of the
Mediterranean to the valleys of the Amazon rainforest, North American Herb
and Spice has sourced the finest fruits, herbs, and spices in the world. Wild
handpicked spices such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone
