What kind of Vitamin C is in Ener-C?
Ener-C contains 1,000mg of Vitamin C from mineral ascorbates including: Calcium Ascorbate, Zinc Ascorbate, Chromium Ascorbate and Potassium Ascorbate as well as a small amount of ascorbic acid to create effervescence.
What is mineral ascorbate Vitamin C?
All animals produce Vitamin C in their bodies with the exception of human beings, Guinea pigs, and a type of fruit bat. The animals that produce vitamin C naturally produce it in the form of mineral ascorbate. The calcium ascorbate in Ener-C does not change the Ph of your digestive system the way ascorbic acid does, so it is less likely to cause stomach upset than ascorbic acid alone and is known to be more bioavailable.
What do you use to colour Ener-C?
Believe it or not, the bright colours of Ener-C’s different flavours come from real fruit and vegetable juice powders. If you notice small orange dots in the Orange flavour, they are from beta carotene, and the purple tinge in the Tangerine Grapefruit flavour comes from purple sweet potato powder.
What is Ener-C flavoured with?
The tangy and sweet flavours of Ener-C come from Non-GMO real fruit juice powders and a small amount of cane sugar.
Does Ener-C contain GMOs?
No. We are committed to using Non-GMO ingredients in all our flavours. Ener-C is third-party certified Non-GMO through NSF True North.
Why is Ener-C Non-GMO?
A growing body of evidence connects GMOs with environmental damage, and violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights. More than 60 countries around the world—including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union—require GMOs to be labeled. Globally, there are also 300 regions with outright bans on growing GMOs. Increasingly, people are taking matters into their own hands and choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment. We choose Non-GMO ingredients because we believe no one but Mother Earth should “own” the seeds produced by plants.
Why does Ener-C contain sugar?
The (small amount) of sugar in our multivitamin and sport formulas plays a very important role in helping your body absorb the electrolytes in our formulas for rehydration.
Is Ener-C gluten-free?
Ener-C is completely gluten, wheat and yeast free and made in a dedicated gluten-free facility. However, it is not third-party certified.
Is Ener-C Vegetarian? Vegan?
Yes. Ener-C is both Vegetarian and Vegan.
Is Ener-C certified Kosher or Halal?
No, we are not certified as Kosher or Halal.
Ener-C contains aspartic acid. Is that the same as Aspartame?
Definitely not! Aspartic acid is an amino acid, Aspartame is an artificial sweetener. Aspartic acid is a component of Aspartame but that is where the similarity ends. It would be like saying Hydrogen peroxide (2)HO is similar to water H2O. One is harmful, and one is essential for life although they are very similar in chemical formula. Aspartic acid, also called asparaginic acid, is one of the non-essential amino acids.
"Non-essential" means that our bodies naturally produce it even if we don't get this amino acid from the food we eat. Aspartic acid helps every cell in the body work and plays a role in hormone production and release and normal function of the nervous system. Naturally occurring plant sources of aspartic acid include legumes (soy and garbanzo beans and lentils) and nuts and seeds such as peanuts, almonds, walnuts and flax seeds.
* *Note: Ener-C does not contain any nuts or animal-sourced ingredients in its formulation.
What is silica and why is it in Ener-C?
There are many different forms of Silica. Crystaline Silica is a danger and comes from quartz, which may be why some people are concerned when they see the word “silica”. The Silica in Ener-C comes from diatomaceous earth and provides some health benefit. Once water is added to Ener-C, the Silica becomes Silica Hydrate which neutralizes free radicals helps preserve cellular and molecular integrity and, like other anti-oxidants, scavenges free radicals without becoming one itself. Silica also helps chelate heavy metals from our systems.
Is there anything artificial in Ener-C?
We used natural sourced ingredients wherever we can.
All Ener-C’s ingredients are Non-GMO and naturally-sourced, with the exceptions of the Vitamins B12 (methylcobalamin) and B6 (pyridoxine). There are stringent guidelines for supplements around the presence of heavy metals, and vitamins B6 and B12 generally test above 2 parts per million for their presence, which is not acceptable for our product. Furthermore, food sources for B vitamins such as dairy, fish or other animal sources are not suitable ingredients for Ener-C as we are committed to offering a formula that can be taken by vegetarians and vegans. The small amount of sugar we use in our multivitamin and sport formulas is fair trade, non-GMO evaporated cane sugar source. This is a low glycemic sugar that is a monosaccharide or “simple” sugar that goes through minimal refining.
When should I take Ener-C Multivitamin?
We suggest taking 1 packet of Ener-C once or twice per day. Because the main source of Vitamin C in Ener-C is mineral ascorbates, there is less chance the product will upset your stomach if you exceed 2 packets per day. If you are feeling dehydrated or ill, you may want to bump up your intake. The electrolytes and B vitamins will help with rehydration and energy, and the zinc may reduce the duration and intensity of symptoms of a cold or flu.
Is it safe to take Ener-C when pregnant or nursing?
Always consult your physician or health care practitioner prior to taking any supplements when pregnant or nursing. Ener-C is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can children take Ener-C?
Ener-C contains an adult dose of vitamins and minerals. If you wish to give a child under 18 years of age Ener-C, please consult your healthcare professional prior to use.
Is Ener-C safe to take with a multivitamin?
Ener-C is a multi-vitamin, and taking your vitamins already dissolved in water makes them easier for your body to absorb than taking them in pill form. The only other vitamin you may want to take on a daily basis (that isn’t present in our formula) is vitamin D.
How to Take:
- Mix with 4-6 ounces of water (less water = mouth party, more water = light and subtle)
- Watch it fizz
- Drink & feel refreshed
