- Vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble micronutrient. A key marker of all around wellness, it supports numerous important bodily processes – including cell repair and protection, immune system regulation, joint function and detoxification.
- Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant. It’s been shown to shield cells and DNA against free radical damage, helping to quell chronic inflammation. This may lead to neuroprotective effects and enhanced blood flow.
- PuraThrive™ Radiant C uses the very best nutrient delivery technology available today. Our breakthrough Micelle Liposomal delivery method protects the fragile Vitamin C molecules from breakdown in the digestive tract, providing a powerful serving right where you need it.
How it works
Are you getting enough vitamin c? Just 10% of people eat the recommended daily serving of fruits & vegetables.
That means you could be missing out on a whole range of micronutrients, including the all important, inflammation-battling powerhouse – vitamin c. And if you’re a college student, smoker, or older adult – you may be at an even higher risk of experiencing sub-optimal levels. Why is this an issue?
A few warning signs of a vitamin c deficiency include:
- Easy bruising
- Inflamed gums
- Weight gain
- Leaky gut
- Weakened immune system
- Dry hair & rough skin
- Swollen & painful joints
- Time to lighten your day with radiant c
In an ideal world, simply eating more fruits and vegetables would be enough to sufficiently improve your vitamin c levels. But due to soil degradation and declining nutrient levels in foods, the reality is you probably need a helping hand from a supplement source.
But here’s the thing:
Most conventional vitamin c products are nothing more than glorified sugar pills, using a cheap, poorly bioavailable form of vitamin c that often results in nothing more than stomach distress and a lighter wallet.
Intravenous vitamin c delivery is another option, but it’s often painful, inconvenient to arrange an appointment, and very expensive if you want ongoing support (usually costing hundreds of dollars per treatment).
We decided things needed to change
Here at purathrive, we believe everyone should have consistent access to a high-quality form of vitamin c (without having to take out a small loan).
After intensive research and experimentation, the result was radiant c – a carefully crafted vitamin c supplement designed with maximum absorption and potency in mind.
Unlike many traditional vitamin c products, we use an all-natural, highly bioavailable, fermented and buffered form of l-ascorbic acid that’s easier for your body to digest.
To top things off, our breakthrough micelle liposomal delivery method has been clinically proven to protect the vitamin c molecules from breakdown in the digestive tract and deliver up to 140x absorption – giving you more bang for your buck.
