Although healers and scientists as far back as Hippocrates knew that fresh vegetables and fruits were important for health, it wasn't until the 1930s that vitamin C or ascorbic acid was discovered and its far-reaching benefits understood. Since then, vitamin C's importance has been established: it is available as ascorbic acid in pills, powders, drinks, tablets, and crystals.
But only in the past decade have we understood the importance of obtaining vitamin C from plants and food, rather than only from purified ascorbic acid. This natural vitamin C - called the vitamin C complex - includes ascorbic acid but it also contains a wide array of nutrients like bioflavonoids, ascorbigen, rutin, hesperidin, choline, vitamin K tyrosinase and organically bound copper. According to the vitamin C pioneers Dr. Royal Lee and Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi, ascorbic acid is the outer shell of the naturally occurring vitamin C Complex.
Planetary Herbals True To Nature C is the vitamin C that nature has provided all along.
Life on the High C's: Appreciation of the benefits of vitamin C began in the 1700s - long before vitamin C was even discovered. It was a time when the British navy traversed the world, exploring the far reaches of the globe and protecting colonies and business interests. The British East India Company filled the country's coffers with gold, yet many sailors got sick or died on long ocean yoyages, from what we now know as a lack of vitamin C. English sailors had diets of ale or cider, dried biscuits, and salted pork.
In 1747, James Lind, a British Royal Navy surgeon, while at sea, provided some crew members with two oranges and one lemon per day, while the others continued with cider. He noted the results and published his findings. It was the first recorded, conclusive study showing the benefits of citrus in preventing many illnesses. Within a few years, limes (then cheaper and more available than lemons or oranges) became standard issue on sea voyages, thus began the term "limeys" as a nickname for British sailors.
Almost all plants and animals on earth manufacture their own vitamin C as a natural part of their metabolic processes. But primates, including humans, are among the few animals that are an exception; we must obtain vitamin C from our diets. In ancient times, this was no problem; humans obtained sufficient vitamin C directly from food: fresh meat (particularly organs), raw fruits and vegetables, berries, and nuts. However, with civilization came domestication, food storage, and diets further and further away from natural sources of nutrients. Ever since, humans have suffered from various levels of vitamin C deficiencies.
Vibrant compound: Most fruits and vegetables contain some ascorbic acid. True To Nature C consists of natural ingredients that not only contain ascorbic acid, but further deliver the micronutrients necessary for the full benefits of Vitamin C Complex.
Among the ingredients are: 1) Acerola cherry (Malpighia emarginata): A native of Central and South America, this plant contains ascorbic acid and several polyphenols such as cyaniding, pelargonidin, and quercitrin, all of which possess strong antioxidant activity. 2) Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia): A plant from Peru, camu camu has numerous anthocyanins and ellagic acids, along with ascorbic acid, and many consume it as a tonic for blood, tissue, and joint health. 3) Amla (Emblica officinalis): Amla is an Indian fruit that has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic health tradition. It has many uses, including organ health, blood health, and heart health. 4) Rose hips (rosa canina): A virtual goldmine of nutrients, rose hips contain ascorbic acid, carotenoids, catechins, flavonoids, ceucoanthocyanins, pectins, and polyphenols. 5) True To Nature C also includes cabbage powder, elderberries, parsley leaf, cranberry, lecithin, grapeseed extract, and bilberry.

True To Nature C seems ok. But don't notice much difference from the Sams club brand we had been purchasing.
kind of pricey for the amount and didn't break down how much ascorbic acid vs amla in the product
