Comfort C® Fact Sheet
The health benefits of vitamin C are well known. It is a key antioxidant and one of the most important nutrients helping to protect the body from free radical damage, infection and many other ailments. Calcium is a critically important mineral in the human diet. Vitamin C is very acidic with a pH of 4.2. Forty-four percent of the US population has either Acid Reflux or occasional heartburn and cannot tolerate this acidity. Comfort C is the only clinically validated Vitamin C with Bioperine®, a patented and proven natural absorption enhancer. Until now, the only solution for these consumers was to either not take a Vitamin C supplement or to buy a leading premium Vitamin C brand.
Scientific Food Solutions (http://www.scientificfoodsolutions.com/) using natural, USP grade calcium carbonate and vitamin C formulate Comfort C®; (http://www.scientificfoodsolutions.com/pages/comfortC.html) delivers a neutralized vitamin C product far superior to blended alternatives. It combines all natural ingredients to deliver increased bio-absorption of nutrients while being comforting to the stomach.
Comfort C assists in raising the pH of vitamin C, so it is gentle on the stomach. Comfort C can increase consumer consumption of both vitamin C and calcium supplements and offers new branding opportunities.
Latest Clinical Findings:
A clinical trial comparing the bioavailability of two buffered vitamin C supplements in healthy non-smoking males
Methods: Prospective, comparator, double blind, randomized, crossover trial. Five healthy, non-smoking male subjects, (32.0 ± 6.2 years), received 2 different vitamin C products (one gram doses) in random order preceded by at least 7 days of a low vitamin C diet. Blood was drawn pre-ingestion and 30, 60, 90, 120, 210 and 240 minutes post-ingestion for serum ascorbic acid. Average urine concentrations of vitamin C were determined by twenty-four hour collection. [NOTE: Male subjects were selected to reduce variability due to menstrual cycle hormonal influences; non-smokers as smoking can reduce body stores and perhaps response to vitamin C supplementation.]
Result: Body weight adjusted vitamin C concentration changes from baseline were significantly (275%) higher with Comfort C® than the other brand at 60 minutes (4.33±1.47 vs. 1.68±0.90; p=0.043).
Conclusion: Comfort C® provides significantly faster absorption in the first 60 minutes.
