Cold and flu season has arrived and I'm sure many of us are feeling like we are consistently "fighting" something. I know I am. Thankfully, I have strong immune enhancers on my side. This smoothie is a power-packed punch of Vitamin C, Polyphenols, Antioxidants, and delicious ingredients.
Super Natural C is so much different than just taking your average ol' Vitamin C supplement.
1) It's not made of ascorbic acid (synthesized vitamin C that comes from corn sugar)
2) It IS completely plant-based from HI-ORAC plant extracts
3) NO genetically modified ingredients
4) Safe for vegetarians
With Vitamin C coming from organic Acerola, organic Amla, and wild-crafted Camu-Camu extracts, you know you are getting 100% natural and pure vitamin C. Now, that's how I like to arm myself for the fight against cold & flu season.
