Each 1.5 Teaspoons Provides: 302 mg of naturally occurring, truly natural, absorbable, non-toxic Vitamin C complex from a whole food extract of acerola berry (containing naturally occurring cofactors including bioflavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients). Naturally buffered. This product does not contain isolated vitamin C! This truly natural acerola concentrate is not excreted in large amounts in the urine (visible as a yellowish tint), is not highly acidic, is non-toxic, and does not cause nutrient imbalances (does not imbalance iron and copper levels or promote anemia). Vitamin C never occurs as an isolate in nature; it is part of an entire vitamin C complex! Food sources of the entire vitamin C complex are the only way to get nutrition as nature intended.
1.5 teaspoons or more per day. Store at room temperature. The amber glass bottle, metal lid, and oxygen absorber preserve nutrients optimally. Mix with purified water, fresh juice, soy milk, rice milk, freshly made sesame seed milk, smoothies, Vitamineral Green, Vitamineral Earth, or other food.
Suggested Adjuncts: A whole foods, organic, Vegan diet with emphasis on high-water-content, fresh, raw/live foods (see the book "Uncooking with Jameth & Kim"); Vitamineral Green and Vitamineral Earth (unique and comprehensive superfood nutrient and detoxification complexes), Liver Rescue; exercise (try rebounding); fresh air (get lots of plants); and everything else healthful. HealthForce truly cares and is committed to researching and developing the highest quality, most regenerative, life-enhancing products.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I just received this and when I looked at the label, I saw "Non GMO corn maltodextrin as a drying medium" listed under "Other ingredients." I didn't know whether that meant there was a dessicant packet inside or whether the maltodextrin was in the product itself, so I called the LifeForce company and they told me that the product is TWENTY PERCENT Corn maltodextrin (which is a fancy name for corn SUGAR)! I did not bother to open the jar and I'm bothered that this was NOT fully disclosed in the iHerb listing of the product. To me, that's deceptive and not in keeping with the otherwise good information on this site. LifeForce also was not totally honest in not listing that on the label, because it surely will affect the amount of carbs as well as its behavior in the body. Nutrient information is supposed to include those kinds of things, as far as I know. Anyone who is concerned about carbs or high glycemic foods should stay away from this entirely, not to mention all of those who might be allergic to corn! Sheesh!
Great product except it doesn't say anywhere on the product that it is organic - only "truly natural" which is a bunch of marketing BS. I just assumed it was organic when I bought it since it was a healthforce product...should have looked closer (cherries are HEAVILY sprayed). Sheridan, please make this product organic and add camu camu! I love your other products.

Well, HealthForce are not honest. In Other Ingredients they say: Non-GMO corn maltodextrin as a drying medium but they "forgot" to say it's 20% of corn sugar in the bottle.
Excellent Vit C.

Extremely pleased with this vitamic C. Like it because it is totally natural. I usually just add 1.5 tsp. to my smoothies or shakes or even juices. Even though I am pretty strict with my eating habits. My family and I all follow a plant based vegan lifestyle with lots of fruits and vegetables. This vitamin C has certainly kept the colds at bay.

Great as a little extra something to mix with water during the day, or add to store-bought juice for extra nutrition. Naturally sour, really like that it's not ascorbic acid (like 99% of vitamin C available in shops)
Food based Vit C

most pure i have found. great price!
Just buy pure Acerola Berry Powder or Camu Camu instead
Posted by 4645879242895850993 on Dec 05, 2014
This Is the email i got from HealthForce Support: Dec 3 1:49pm Thank you for contacting us today. There is 20% maltodextrin in the vitamin c. This means there is 1 gram of maltodextrin for every 5 grams of vitamin c. Hope this helps and have an excellent day! ------------------------------------------ So the product is just tainted Acerola berry powder with better marketing. Acerola powder is great, BUT! it is mixed with 20% Corn Maltodextrin, which is good for profit... But not your health. 1g of Maltodextrin equals 4 calories, which means there is 100 grams of sugar and 400 calories in this product. This is not mentioned at all. This is clearly a very significant detail (Which is not included) Instead it just says: "Other ingredients: Non-GMO Corn Maltodextrin as a drying medium." Now with this much "honesty" i would take the statement non-gmo on this product with a pinch of salt. After all this product is not organic. Do yourself a favor and just buy the pure Acerola Berry Powder, or Camu Camu powder for vitamin c instead. Thanks to the reviewer below (You were right)
