Optivida Vitamin C is not Ascorbic Acid.
Most Vitamin C supplements are ascorbic acid. This synthetic Vitamin C is created by taking corn starch and breaking it down with heat, enzymes, acetone, and hydrochloric acid. Ascorbic acid is used by the supplement industry because of the known challenges and the cost of extracting natural Vitamin C from fruits and vegetables. 90% of all the ascorbic acid used in supplements is made in China, often in unsafe conditions.
Optivita uses patented dehydration technology called OptiDri™.
OptiDri™ uses specific natural light wavelengths to evaporate water without using heat. This process has the unprecedented ability to leave the original phytonutrients, plus the skin, seed, and pulp of the cherries totally intact without the loss of any color, flavor, or nutrients.
OptiDri™ is the only technology for drying and preserving whole foods that maintains 100% of the goodness of the fruit or vegetable.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin.
Vitamin C dissolves in water and is delivered to your body’s tissues but your body does not stored it, so it must be taken daily through food or a natural supplement.
