What kind of company takes FOUR YEARS to create a SINGLE INGREDIENT product? One that cares about purity and potency, of course. 🙂
I use Perfect Supplements products every day because I love their transparency and commitment to quality. They don’t just ask you to trust them when they say their grass-fed gelatin and collagen are free of glyphosate residue – they post the lab results on their product listings.
Potency is just as important to them, which is why they test their freeze-dried rhodiola (an adaptogenic herb that supports stress resilience) in order to make sure it contains sufficient levels of salidroside and rosavins. (And they publish those results, too.)
That’s why when I heard they were creating a 100% food-based vitamin C supplement I knew they’d come up with something amazing.
Then they finally released it and it was . . . one ingredient. Most whole-food based vitamin C powders are a blend of different fruits like acerola, camu camu and amla, so I was curious about their reasoning.
When Less Is More
Turns out, they tried all kinds of complicated blends with kakadu plum, camu camu, amla, sago palm and more, but none of them met their strict requirements. They wanted a product that was:
- Sourced exclusively from food
- Naturally abundant in Vitamin C
- Free of added ascorbic acid
- Freeze dried to keep nutrients intact
- Lab tested for purity
- Free of fillers, flow agents and other ingredients
- Pleasant tasting
The only fruit that made the cut was acerola. When they tried blending it with other fruits, either the nutrient levels decreased or purity was compromised.Sometimes less really is more, so they chose to make their vitamin C supplement with 100% pure acerola.It’s been so popular that it’s sold out four times since it was introduced last year, but it’s BACK IN STOCK and Perfect Supplements is celebrating with a 3 DAY SALE.
