The RHP Vitamin C Complex

Did you know that most of the supplements on the shelves of health-food shops, drug stores and supermarkets contain "vitamins" that are just man-made chemicals and "minerals" that are simply ground up rocks or mineral salts.

For example, nearly all "vitamin C" sold in the US is ascorbic acid. This is a man-made as ascorbic acid by itself is found no where in nature by itself.

Isolated ascorbic acid is manufactured in chemical plants by applying heat and pressure and additional chemicals to glucose (sugar), which converts the glucose to ascorbic acid. Not exactly like drinking orange juice, is it?

Ascorbic acid isn't absorbed or utilized the same way as food, and can often upset the stomach and digestive tract because it's an acid. The body needs the whole complex Vitamin C.

Some companies will combine ascorbic acid with other chemicals to "buffer" it (make it less acid). This results in the "sodium ascorbate" or "calcium ascorbate" salt forms of ascorbic acid.

The bottom line is that these forms of "vitamin C" as well as most other "vitamins" you find on store shelves, are man-made chemicals. They are nothing like the true vitamins found in fresh fruits, vegetables and meat.

Now, let's take a look at the "minerals" that are available on store shelves. For example, 70% of the "calcium" supplements sold in the US is calcium carbonate. This is factually finely ground up limestone rock, seashells or coral.

Only 4-7% of calcium carbonate taken as a supplement is actually absorbed by the body. Calcium carbonate is sometimes combined with other chemicals to try and improve this very poor absorption rate.

Regardless of the many different chemical forms calcium carbonate can get changed into, none of them are the same as the calcium found in a cabbage. Not even close!These man-made chemical vitamins and ground up rock and mineral salts are called "USP" vitamins and minerals. (USP stands for United States Pharmacopoeia, which is a set of standards these vitamins and minerals are measured by.)

You may also come across vitamins and minerals that are labeled "food based". These mayb be USP vitamins and minerals that have been physically mixed in with alfalfa or soy or some other food.

This mixing with food is done in an attempt to increase the absorption of these chemicals and ground up rock into the ody. That is why you often see "take with food" on their labels.

Occasionally these "food based" products will be labeled "organic". This simply means that the alfalfa or soy the chemicals were mixed in with was grown organically.

Today you can find vitamins and minerals dissolved in liquid form. If the product is made with man-made vitamins and minerals, you're just pumping man-made chemicals into your body.

When you plant a cabbage in the ground, its roots grow down nto the soil and rocks, and they pull up from the ground calcium and other minerals in a form that you and I can't eat.

Then through the normal life processes of the plant, it converts these minerals into a part of the plant body itself. Now the calcium has actually become a food we can eat, and our body knows how to absorb and utilize it.

To be effectively absorbed and utilized, vitamins and minerals must be the way they are in food.


Vitamin C 


RHP® Vitamin C contains only organic camu camu extract, a real food source of vitamin C, that is highly bioavailable because it literally is a food!

What is camu camu? Camu camu is a shrub that grows in swampy or flooded areas of the Amazon rain forests of Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. The shrub bears large berries that can look like cherries. These berries turn out to be one of the top vitamin c foods, for they have more of this vitamin in hem than any other food source on the planet, sometimes as much as 60 times more vitamin C than an orange *

It is vitamin C in a whole food extract which contains bioflavonoids, protein and all the other food factors that enables the body to absorb, retain and utilize this vitamin C much more efficiently.

RHP® Vitamin C will not upset the stomach and digestive tract. You can even take it on an empty stomach.

RHP® Vitamin C is now available for you and your family.
We are currently offering a 120-tablet bottle for $32.20. You aren't going to find a better deal for vitamin C sourced from camu camu. Don't wait to get your bottle!
