Acerola cherry as natural source of Vitamin C
While it’s possible to consume raw acerola cherries, products like Xtend+ and ZinoGene+ deliver complimentary health benefits. Choosing the right vitamin C supplementary is important. A lot of products available today use a synthetic form of vitamin C (ascorbic acid, which is produced in a laboratory).
Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant found in the brain, blood, and muscles, is most beneficial to our bodies in its pure, natural form. Both Xtend+ and ZinoGene+ are packed with the highest quality of vitamin C, sourced directly from plants, just like all of our other ingredients.
In addition to the vital vitamin C, we’ve harnessed other nutrients, carotenoids and bioflavonoids as well. It’s important to make a habit of examining the ingredients list, even when a product claims to be natural. A key point to remember is that natural supplements should list food sources, not chemical names like ‘ascorbic acid.’ Xtend+ and ZinoGene+ use the best of what nature has to offer to rejuvenate and rebalance the body.
You’ll know exactly what’s in both of these products and where each ingredient is sourced from. In essence, these food supplements are nature at its best.
