Recent Customer Question

Q. What is the difference between natural Vitamin C and synthetic Vitamin C?

A. Dr. Gerry writes:

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your requested information.

My name is Dr. Gerry Bohemier. I work for Innotech Nutrition as their Nutritional Consultant and Research Director. I have 33 years of Clinical nutrition experience and as such, they have asked me to answer your query.

The question you pose is becoming more common as the use of vitamin C is steadily rising. The Ascorbate fraction of Ascorbic acid is the Vitamin C ion (molecule) used by your cells for literally hundreds of essential biological functions. All mammals synthesize their own ascorbic acid in their liver from blood glucose. Glucose is reduced 4 times with different enzymes yielding ascorbic acid on demand.

The large primates (which includes man) do not have the last of the necessary enzymes to transform the glucose molecule into an ascorbic acid (vitamin C) molecule and as such, Humans are chronically deficient in Vitamin C and must get adequate amounts from foods and supplements. The vast majority of Vitamin C in our diets come from supplements. In fact it is practically impossible to consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet the body’s demand for this vitamin. Large apes, like the gorilla, consume 40-50 lbs of vegetation daily to get their necessary amounts of ascorbic acid. Supplementation has been the most practical way of getting enough for man. Vitamin C supplements virtually all start out with man made ascorbic acid derived from the plant sugar glucose.

Innotech Nutrition uses the world standardized Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C powder derived from plant based glucose. Corn or rice starch is a by-product of Corn or rice protein meal extraction. Starch is basically a chain of glucose molecules bonded together. This seed grain derived glucose is reduced with enzymes and acids to yield Ascorbic Acid. It’s that simple.

So technically, commercial Ascorbic Acid is synthetic to answer your question. Interestingly though, the process resembles the natural synthesis in animal livers. Ascorbic acid is synthesized from glucose in nature and in the lab. The resultant ascorbic acid Vitamin C ion is bio-identical to that naturally synthesized in nature and the clinical benefits are the same.

Vitamin C can also be extracted from plants but this is very complex, commercially impractical and significantly more expensive. Low dose powders, capsules or pills are the only option in this form. They are no more therapeutic than plain Ascorbic Acid. 60 years of research has confirmed this. That is why very few products are marketed with this kind of natural Vitamin C. How natural is it after having gone through the extraction process? Is there scientific evidence that it is superior? None that I have ever come across. The marketing of Vitamin C “complex” is just that; marketing. Don’t be fooled. Synthetic Vitamin C is in the vast majority of the products sold and it’s the kind that has been successfully used and researched for decades.

CardioFlex is Innotech’s flagship product and is very therapeutic due to the large dose of Vitamin C, L-Lysine and Proline in every scoop. It works very well in maintaining optimum levels of ascorbate ions in the body. CardioFlex is a Dr. Linus Pauling inspired formula to restore and optimize collagen synthesis in our body which in turn strengthens the integrity of our tissues and blood vessels. As such, it is capable of preventing or reversing many degenerative diseases such as heart disease. All degenerative diseases are collagen deficiency or defective diseases. CardioFlex will help in all respects. The clinical effects of CardioFlex are dose-related and every person’s needs are different. 2 scoops for adults are the minimum daily recommendation for best results. Most people need extra Vitamin C in between scoops. Call me if you have questions related to CardioFlex use.

Thank you for your interest in this matter and I hope I have shed some light on the subject. Please feel free to e-mail me directly with any other comments or concerns.

Best regards,
Dr. Gerry
