What is EXTRA C?

Enhanced absorption and assimilation

Extra C contains the branded ingredient PureWay-C which is considered the best absorbed and assimilated vitamin C formula. It is a blend of ascorbic acid, bioflavonoids and fatty acids which produce a slightly alkaline formulation that is well tolerated.

In in-vitro conditions Pureway-C demonstrated the greatest uptake and cellular absorption than other forms of vitamin C, including ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate and a calcium ascorbate-threonic acid blend. The increased rate of absorption correlated with an increased protection of the T-lymphocytes test cells from pesticide toxins. 

In healthy participants PureWay-C led to the highest total serum vitamin C in comparison to ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate and a calcium ascorbate-threonic acid blend. Oral supplementation with PureWay-C also led to a greater reduction in plasma C-reactive protein and oxidized LDL-C levels compared to the other vitamin C formulations. 30 It was concluded that vitamin C-lipid metabolites PureWay-C exerted a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenging capabilities. While in humans it was more rapidly absorbed and led to higher serum vitamin C levels and a greater reduction of plasma levels of inflammatory and oxidative stress markers than other forms of vitamin C.


Extra C is a high potency form of vitamin C, developed and clinically researched to deliver enhanced absorption and retention.

The addition of lipid metabolites enhances bioavailability, making it more rapidly absorbed and more highly retained by the human body than other traditional forms of vitamin C. The result is an increase in the distribution of vitamin C to the cells helping to deliver optimal levels. Extra C formulated from natural ingredients with the vitamin C derived via a corn fermentation process.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for the body.
