Oshun Health’s Citrus C is a whole fruit extract of organic oranges, lemons and baobab in a liposomal base. The product differs from the more commonly found ascorbic acid/synthetic Vitamin C’s in that it offers a natural Vitamin C together with all the synergistic effects provided by the phytochemicals and nutritional cofactors of whole fruit. This is important as research shows that the nutritional value of the phytochemicals in whole fruit and vegetables have been hugely underestimated. It’s been established, for instance, that the actions of antioxidant nutrients – like Vitamin C – alone cannot explain the reduced risk of developing chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease in people with diets rich in fruit and vegetables. In fact, studies on whole fruit like apples show that the Vitamin C, without the phytochemicals and other nutritional cofactors, only account for 0,4% of the very potent antioxidant value of apples. (reference: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC442131/). It, therefore, makes sense not to take a single supplement Vitamin C but to take the Vitamin C with all the phytochemicals in whole fruit. This is what Oshun Health’s Citrus C offers.

The other reason why it’s important to take a natural Vitamin C, instead of the synthetic ascorbic acid, is that ascorbic acid doesn’t represent Vitamin C in its entirety. It represents only the outer ring that serves as a protective shell for the entire Vitamin C complex, much like an orange peel that serves as a protective shell for an orange. Real Vitamin C found in whole foods like fruits and vegetables contains the following components:

Rutin
Bioflavonoids (Vitamin P)
Factor K
Factor J
Factor P
Tyrosinase
Ascorbinogen
Ascorbic Acid

When only ascorbic acid, as found in a synthetic Vitamin C, is taken the body must gather all of the other components of the full Vitamin C complex from the body’s tissues in order to utilise the ascorbic acid. Should the body not have adequate reserves of the other components, ascorbic acid itself does not provide any of the health benefits that the full Vitamin C complex does. Moreover, if ascorbic acid is taken in high doses, it can deplete the body of the abovementioned components. (reference: http://drbenkim.com/articles-vitamins.html)

Oshun Health’s Citrus C is made using proprietary extraction technology that does not affect the phytochemical structure of the plant and keeps it preserved for an extended period of time. It also uses fulvisome absorption technology which encapsulates fulvic acid, together with the active ingredients, in the liposomal vessicle. The formula has been tested and, in terms of absorption, shown to outperform anything that is currently available in the market. Citrus C and the pursuit of whole food nutrition is in line with Oshun Health’s view that the less synthetic, and the closer the source of nutrition is to the way nature itself presents it, the better.

“Well, you know the industry isn’t really regulated so who knows what’s in there? Your guess is as good as mine and even if you knew and started taking it it’s probably in on the one side and out on the other”. My GP’s cynical response to a question about a good iron supplement kind of took the wind out of my sails, but if I had to be honest, it echoed my own sentiments about the wellness industry. So what would persuade a mother of three with not much business experience, a small player in a world of big brands, to venture out into exactly that industry? Mariëtte Marais, Founder Oshun Health
