Getting enough vitamin C is necessary for overall health but humans lost the ability to synthesize Vitamin C through evolution. Vitamin C enhances immune function, scavenge free radicals, supports collagen synthesis and promotes cardiovascular health. Higher doses of vitamin C are oftentimes used to support detoxification, modulation of calcium within vessels, and in severe immune compromise. The challenge with obtaining higher dose vitamin c is the acidic nature and gastrointestinal distress it can cause.
Active Ribose C is a pleasant tasting, non-acidic, high potency Vitamin C powder, utilizing not one, but FOUR unique pathways to provide multiple avenues for absorption:
Glucose Pathway- the common pathway for Vitamin C uptake. Because many nutrients utilize this pathway, it appears that Active Ribose C does not have to “wait in line” to be absorbed and can use one of the other pathways if needed.
Sodium Pathway- The fully attached elemental sodium molecule is another pathway utilized for absorption. Since it does not break down in the gut, there is no stomach upset (as most Vitamin C products will do at this dosage). Note: this differs from common table salt in that the sodium is not combined with chloride, the sodium salt most associated with hypertension.
Pentose Phosphate Pathway- The added GMS-Ribose complex (a special glucose metabolite with a unique ribose fraction), uses the Pentose Phosphate pathway as an additional gateway for further absorption into the cell. GMS-Ribose is a patented proprietary blend of methylated glycine.
Bioavailable Organic Sulphur (BOT))- The BOT enhancement supports healthy connective tissues, but also creates more pliable and permeable cells. When water and nutrients flow freely into cells, and wastes and toxins flow out properly, our bodies are able to eliminate toxins more efficiently and absorb nutrients more readily.
By utilizing these four unique uptake pathways, absorption is optimized, all while bypassing the gut reaction. One teaspoon provides 4 GRAMS (4000mg) of Vitamin C that can be taken without the stomach upset, gas or diarrhea that usually comes with high doses of Vitamin C. This dosage allows for maximum support.
