Not Your Typical Vitamin C
To see how our Pure Radiance C is so fundamentally different from other vitamin C supplements, all you have to do is unscrew the lid or open a capsule. Instead of being an unnaturally bright white like synthetic crystals of vitamin C, Pure Radiance C is a radiant mixture of tans, pinks, and golds. What you’re seeing is a vibrant, living blend of wildcrafted camu camu and organic amla, acerola, blueberries, raspberries, lemons, cranberries, cherries, rose hips, and sprouts — 100% natural sources of vitamin C. And unlike isolated ascorbic acid powders, which have been chemically synthesized in a laboratory, Pure Radiance C provides all the well-researched, immune-supporting phytonutrients that only accompany genuine, 100% natural vitamin C.
Our Pure Radiance C, with its handpicked, Amazonian camu camu berries, embodies everything we value and pursue as a company. Creating a partnership with the rainforest peoples allows us to help preserve their ancient lifestyle and protect a priceless ecosystem while providing a truly remarkable product. It is genuine “synergy” in which everyone and everything benefit — the Amazonians, the rainforest, the planet…and you!

Bursting with the proven goodness of 100% natural vitamin C, Pure Radiance C combines timeless nutritional wisdom with modern innovation. Pure Radiance C is made exclusively with wildcrafted ingredients and contains no additives, fillers, corn, gluten, or synthetic ascorbic acid.
Wild Camu Camu Berries
One of the world’s richest source of natural vitamin C (30-50 times more than an orange!), our camu camu berries are wild harvested by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest and then gently juiced and dried to retain all their precious nutritional cargo. Your purchase not only supports your health, it also helps to preserve the planet's precious tropical ecosystem.
Organic Amla Berries
Organically grown in the Himalayan valleys, amla is the most revered and regenerative herb in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Called “Mother Nature” in India due to the myriad of medicinal properties they possess, amla berries are brimming with antioxidants including vitamin C, tannins, and polyphenols, most notably ellagic acid.
Organic Blend of Acerola, Blueberries, Raspberries, Cranberries, Cherries, Rose Hips, and Lemon
The luminous blues, purples, and reds of the berries and rose hips in our organic fruit blend reflect what’s buried within: natural pigments called flavonoids and anthocyanins which, alongside naturally occurring vitamin C, exhibit impressive antioxidant capacity to keep your body vital and well.
Organic Buckwheat Berry Sprouts and Black Pepper Berry Extract
Buckwheat berry sprouts are an abundant source of naturally occurring rutin and quercetin, two very important vitamin C cofactors. Black pepper berry extract has been shown to improve the uptake of vitamin C in the body to ensure this important vitamin can make its way to all the cells throughout your body.

Acerola Cherry ConcentrateAcerola Cherry Concentrate Malpighia glabra Certified Organic
Famed for its vitamin C content, the acerola berry also contains free-radical busting anthocyanins and many other valuable phytonutrients. Together, these compounds help fight oxidation both inside and out, keeping your cells and whole body flourishing. Skin cells reap the rewards too, with potential benefits for healthy collagen production and skin tone.
Our Amazonian-sourced, certified organic acerola berries are highly concentrated to 20% vitamin C content to further amplify their incredible health-supportive properties. Our acerola berries are handpicked at the optimum time, when the color reveals their peak vitamin C content. At the processing facility, the berries are stored at temperatures just above freezing to preserve their vital nutrients. This stringent temperature control is maintained throughout the entire standardization process. In a proprietary process, our acerola berries are gently concentrated in a cold-liquid extraction. The syrup is then filtered and dried in a vacuum to protect the fragile, heat- and oxygen-sensitive vitamin C. Our gentle extraction process allows us to create an unusually potent product that retains the whole-fruit matrix of vitamin C and its important cofactors. This is a truly natural ingredient of the highest caliber — 100% organic vitamin C with absolutely no synthetic ascorbic acid.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_acerolacherry.jpg

Black Pepper Berry ExtractBlack Pepper Berry Extract Piper nigrum Certified Organic
Who knew that pepper was so much more than the counterpart seasoning to salt? Highly prized since ancient Greece, it was not only used as a seasoning but as a currency and a sacred offering. Black pepper is rich in micronutrients, including vitamin C, and can support healthy digestion. It also has the ability to improve uptake of vitamin C in our bodies, helping it make its way to all our cells. Our SuperPure black pepper berry extract is certified organic, and, as with all our extracts, it is created 100% without any harsh chemicals or solvents so commonly used by other companies.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_blackpepperberry.jpg
Buckwheat Berry SproutsBuckwheat Berry Sprouts Fagopyrum esculentum Certified Organic
Buckwheat is an amazing superfood that is actually an ancient fruit seed (it is not a grain and is gluten free). Sprouting takes a seed that is dormant and sparks it to life with an impressive array of live enzymes and nutrients. Buckwheat berry sprouts are an abundant source of naturally occurring rutin and quercetin, two very important vitamin C cofactors. These phytonutrients can support healthy capillary integrity, skin health, and much more.
Our certified organic buckwheat berry sprout powder begins as certified organic seeds that are carefully selected to produce the most nutritious sprouts. Our seeds are gently activated in a proprietary broth, rich in catalytic minerals and other essential nutrients. After they burst to life, our buckwheat berry sprouts are harvested, flash frozen and immediately placed in a vacuum and freeze-dried for optimum nutrient preservation.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/32_thesynergycompany_buckwheatberrysprouts.jpg
Camu Camu ExtractCamu Camu Extract Myrciaria dubia
One of the world’s richest sources of natural vitamin C, our camu camu berries are wild harvested by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest. These prized berries grow only in remote, hard-to-reach areas of the Amazon rainforest, significantly limiting their availability. We were one of the first companies to overcome this limitation to create the world’s first naturally occurring vitamin C from camu camu standardized to 20%.
Our camu camu berries are handpicked at the optimum time, when the color reveals their peak vitamin C content. At the processing facility, the berries are stored at temperatures just above freezing to preserve their vital nutrients. This stringent temperature control is maintained throughout the entire standardization process. In a proprietary process, our camu camu berries are gently concentrated in a cold-liquid extraction. The syrup is then filtered and dried in a vacuum to protect the fragile, heat- and oxygen-sensitive vitamin C. Our gentle extraction process allows us to create an unusually potent product that retains the whole-fruit matrix of vitamin C and its important cofactors. This is a truly natural ingredient of the highest caliber — 100% natural vitamin C with absolutely no synthetic ascorbic acid.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_camucamu.jpg
CranberryCranberry Vaccinium oxycoccos Certified Organic
Not just for your Thanksgiving table, cranberries are to be commended for their diverse profile of phytonutrients (that, incidentally, cannot be found in the sugar-laden cranberry juices lining the store shelves) – only pure cranberry will do! Most known for their positive effects on urinary tract health, these scarlet red super-berries may also promote gastrointestinal and oral health, and support healthy cholesterol levels. Our pure, certified organic cranberries are fresh freeze-dried and concentrated to amplify their full spectrum of healthy goodness.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_cranberry.jpg

Our certified organic lemon peel is grown right here in the USA in an ideal sunny climate where lemon trees can flourish.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_lemon.jpg
Manioc RootManioc Root Manihot esculenta
Manioc root, aka cassava or yucca, is used as a natural carrier for our acerola cherry and camu camu juices, which can be very sticky due to their highly concentrated nature. Most other products on the market simply use GMO corn derived maltodextrins for this purpose. Manioc root is the most consumed food staple in the entire world. It is native to Brazil and today grows in tropical regions of the Americas. Not unlike a great many traditional plant foods, our manioc root is transformed to make it entirely safe and nutritious to consume. This is done via fermentation, sprouting, and applying heat to convert it into a safe, natural, non-GMO functional and nutritive ingredient.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_maniocroot.jpg
Red RaspberryRed Raspberry Rubus idaeus Certified Organic
Nothing is better than a mouthful of succulent red or black raspberries ripe off the bush. But raspberries are so much more than just tasty treats. Raspberries contain a special compound known as ellagic acid that is being clinically researched for its regulating effects on healthy cell growth and a healthy inflammation response. The long list of goodies in raspberries is extraordinary and puts it neck in neck with the best of the superfruits. Our certified organic red raspberries are fresh freeze-dried and concentrated to amplify their full spectrum of healthy goodness.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_redraspberry.jpg

As such, they offer a great support for a healthy immune system and radiant skin. Also naturally dense in a variety of carotenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols, catechins, and many more nutrients, rose hips are considered an excellent overall wellness booster. Our certified organic rose hips are cultivated in South America and transformed into a rich, free-flowing powder through our specialty steam-drying and sterilization process.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_rosehips.jpg
Wild BlueberryWild Blueberry Vaccinian corymbosum Certified Organic

We also freeze-dry our wild blueberries so that all of their goodness is captured in the best way possible.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_wildblueberry.jpg
Why Choose Pure Radiance C®?
Pure Radiance C offers so much more than your typical, synthetic vitamin C.
We’ve gone to great lengths to deliver a product with the magnificent synergy of whole food vitamin C — something that could never be chemically recreated in a laboratory. On top of that, we’ve scoured the globe for pure, wildcrafted, and sustainable sources of every single one of our meticulously selected ingredients that comprise the magic that is Pure Radiance C. Our devotion to creating the finest vitamin C product on the planet translates into better health for all of you! And that’s our ultimate goal.
Pure Radiance C is gentle yet potent, and perfectly balanced for absorption.
Just like a bowl of fresh berries, our vitamin C is gentle on your stomach, incredibly bioavailable, and in a form exactly as nature intended. Plus, it is created without any harmful additives, fillers, corn, gluten, GMOs, and, of course, synthetic ascorbic acid megadoses that can all be hard on your system. From our point of view, potency of a nutrient has less to do with the number of milligrams on a supplement label, and more to do with how your body recognizes, utilizes it, and most importantly, benefits from it.
Pure Radiance C contains a myriad of valuable phytonutrients proven by science.
Even Dr. Szent-Györgyi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in the 1930s for identifying vitamin C and its powerful health role, knew then that it was vastly superior to obtain vitamin C in its natural food state, not as a fraction of the whole. But somehow this part of his research was left in the dust until recently. Studies now confirm that the benefits we associate with vitamin C rich foods come not only from the vitamin C, but also from all the other goodies that accompany it — just like those found in Pure Radiance C.

How is whole-food vitamin C different from synthetic vitamin C?
In nature, vitamins never exist as single components that act in isolation. Vitamins are composed of numerous cofactors that work together in synergy to nourish the body and produce health benefits. Vitamins that occur naturally in whole foods include all these essential cofactors. However, the majority of vitamins on the market today are synthetic vitamins, which are only isolated portions of the whole. Vitamin C is a good example. Most other vitamin C supplements contain only synthesized ascorbic acid, often made from genetically modified corn. Pure Radiance C is completely different — it is created from 100% natural fruits, berries, and whole-food sources of vitamin C. Along with its vitamin C-rich camu camu and acerola berries, it also contains a special blend of several other wildcrafted berries, rose hips, lemon peel, and sprouts that contribute highly beneficial cofactors such as bioflavonoids, quercetin, hesperiden, anthocyanins, proanthocyanins, and rutin. These cofactors are crucial for your body to obtain the full benefits of whole-food vitamin C.
How and why is whole-food vitamin C superior to synthetic vitamin C?
While biochemically speaking natural, whole-food vitamin C and synthetic ascorbic acid are essentially indistinguishable from one another, this is where the similarities end. The significant advantages of taking a truly natural, whole-food vitamin C go far beyond the ascorbic acid portion of the vitamin. Natural, food-form vitamin C provides your body with much more than just ascorbic acid. For example, our bodies require many of the phytonutrients and compounds that only accompany natural vitamin C (flavonoids, flavanols, polyphenols, carotenoids, lignans, and many more) to manufacture our collagen, which is the natural glue that holds your skin, bones, and body together. Synthetic, isolated ascorbic acid does not provide all the pieces of the puzzle required to manufacture not only collagen but so many other important compounds as well. As 100% whole-food vitamin C, Pure Radiance C provides all of these essential components in addition to an abundance of natural vitamin C.
Is Pure Radiance C acidic?
No, it’s not. Unlike isolated and synthetic ascorbic acid (which is the form of vitamin C found in nearly all other vitamin C supplements), the berries of Pure Radiance C are very gentle on your stomach.
Is the natural vitamin C in your Pure Radiance C more concentrated than the ascorbic acid in synthetic vitamin C?
Comparing amounts of synthetic ascorbic acid to the natural, whole-food vitamin C in Pure Radiance C is difficult because they are not really the same thing. Our vitamin C is so much more than synthetic, isolated ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is always connected to a multitude of other highly beneficial compounds wherever it is found in food sources. The health benefits we associate with vitamin C come not only from ascorbic acid, but also from the synergistic interaction of numerous phytonutrients, including bioflavonoids, polyphenols, catechins, anthocyanins, rutin, enzymes, and tyrosinase. As such, vitamin C from whole-food sources has so much more to offer than isolated, synthetic ascorbic acid.
How does Pure Radiance C powder taste?
The camu and acerola berries are harvested just before they are ripe, to obtain the highest content of natural vitamin C. Therefore, the resulting powder is naturally tart, not sweet. Nearly all our customers, who mix the powder in water or juice, tell us they enjoy the taste.
Our Certificate of Compliance Program
Quality isn't just a word we speak; It's a long standing company ethos permeating everything we do.
Our Certificate of Compliance (“C of C”) is just one way we walk the talk. It demonstrates our commitment to you when it comes to product safety, purity, and quality. Each C of C document verifies a particular product’s safety in regards to unwanted microbes, heavy metals, radiation, gluten, and GMOs. Using either our certified in-house testing or a third-party validated laboratory, we test every lot of finished product to ensure it meets international safety standards — and our even more stringent internal safety limits — for these specific contaminants.
Our mission is to bring the purest, safest, highest quality products to you and your loved ones — while earning your trust along the way. Learn more about our various certifications.

What does “Pass” mean on the Certificate of Compliance?
You will see that each of the tested components (heavy metals, microbes, etc.) has a “Pass” associated with it in the Results column. This means that the product meets the strict, well-established safety specifications and limits for this particular component as verified by either our in-house certified testing and/or by an independent, third-party validated laboratory. We have studied the guidance, recommendations, and regulations of a wide variety of reputable and scientific international organizations to determine our strict safety limits when it comes to microbes, heavy metals, radiation, gluten, and others. “Pass” essentially means that our products fully meet these strict and well-established parameters across the board.
What does “Complies” mean on the Certificate of Compliance in reference to GMOs?
We use the term “complies” to refer specifically to our audited compliance with all the guidelines and regulations of the organic programs of the U.S., Canada, European Union and Japan, which disallow the use of genetically modified organisms in any of our ingredients, products, or in our facility.
Why are there so many different standards for what is considered safe for these various compounds and elements—isn’t there one federal standard?
Perhaps surprisingly, but no, there is not one single acceptable federal standard for safety when it comes to microbes, heavy metals, and radiation. Various scientific and reputable organizations around the world, including the FDA, USDA, EPA, WHO, and others, have studied these topics and their health implications. Subsequently, many of them have issued their recommendations for safe ranges. It is up to each manufacturer to determine which established standards they will follow. The Synergy Company has done an exhaustive analysis of ALL of these organizations’ guidance and set our safety standards at the strictest, safest levels in the industry.
What are the actual numbers & ranges associated with the various standards listed on the Certificate of Compliance?
For more information about the standards established by each of these organizations, please ask. We would be happy to direct you to the websites where some of this information is available. Each organization or agency has established its own set of standards based on their analysis of the contaminant. The Synergy Company has taken all of the guidance into consideration and selected the most conservative, safe standards for each testing parameter.
Are these tests listed on the Certificate of Compliance performed on every lot?
Yes, our Quality Assurance Program at Synergy mandates that we perform all of these tests listed on every lot of product to ensure absolute quality and safety for you. Not only do we test every lot of our finished products, but we also test every lot of each of our incoming ingredients that go into these products for many of these elements and contaminants. This type of extensive testing is very rare in the industry and shows our dedication to leading the way when it comes to the highest quality standards.
