I had read about the benefits of whole food vitamin C over regular ascorbic acid, but had never tried it. This product is the first one I've tried, and I am very impressed. It is a very gentle C, partly because the dose is less than regular AA, but also because it is a natural compound. I have adrenal fatigue, and will definitely continue to take whole food vitamin C to help make cortisol.
After learning more about vitamin c and hearing that ascorbic isn't the full vitamin-c I went about looking for a different supplement that covered it. This vitamin-c comes from camu berries which I had never heard of either. Regardless, I feel better knowing that I am getting the full vitamin-c package and not just an empty envelope (so to speak). I didn't notice any huge difference to be honest, so now I just try to make it a point to eat more fruit instead. Still, if I had to take a vit-c supplement, I'd buy this one again.
