Why you shouldn’t rely on orange juice for Vitamin C

One of my favorite things to do is take my daughter Harley to music class…

She’s 2 1/2, so this is a fun time for her to get some social skills and meet other kids. But meeting new kids comes with meeting new germs that can be tough for her immune system to handle. Of course, I wash Harley’s hands before and after class, but DURING class things get a little tricky. Especially when a little 6-month-old decides to drool all over the drum Harley wants to play with… RIGHT BEFORE Harley decides to rub her face. Perfect.

As a mom – you can see it all unfold right in front of your eyes in slow motion. You don’t even have time to grab a wipe and before you know it, her immune system can’t cope and she ends up getting sick. And then it spreads…

I get sick… my husband gets sick… it’s a vicious cycle. 

When I was sick as a child, my mom would give me orange juice. It’s a great source of vitamin C and good for your immune system, right? Well, not quite. Watch this video to see why orange juice isn’t the best way to get your vitamin C and what we now use instead…


Introducing Truvani’s Immuno-C made from organic amla berries…

Orange juice does have vitamin C, and it can help support our immune system. But, nowadays, most people don’t get Vitamin C from oranges. We fill our bodies with vitamin C supplements made from Synthetic Vitamin C. Isn’t it about time we started thinking about what we get our vitamin C from?

First of all, shouldn’t it be REAL?

Believe me, you don’t want your vitamins made in a lab. Synthetic vitamin C is made from ascorbic acid, and not only is this form difficult for the body to absorb, it can even upset your stomach. Why feel better in one way and feel awful in another? That’s like curing a headache with a nosebleed.

Second, shouldn’t it be STRONG?

Most people think oranges have the most vitamin C, when in fact, they are super low on the list. Oranges are like most politicians. A lot of promise. No delivery. Other fruits and vegetables aren’t that much higher, and you’d need to eat A LOT of them to get enough vitamin C.

But, there is ONE that’s higher in Vitamin C than them all…

The Amla Berry.

And after months of research and development, I’m so excited to share with you…

Truvani’s Immuno-C: An organic Vitamin C supplement made from organic amla berries.

The majority of the top vitamin C supplements on Amazon are synthetic and most “real food” supplements use less expensive ingredients, such as conventional citrus fruits. Truvani’s Immuno-C supplement was created with organic amla berries because they’re the only fruit that can retain their potency through the drying process and deliver the highest concentration of vitamin C. In fact, fresh amla juice contains 20 times as much vitamin C as is present in orange juice. Who knew right?

And EVERYONE needs some help in the immune support department… Vitamin C is key for giving yourself a fighting chance against the immune compromising condition known as “daily life”.
