WHAT IS RESILIEN-C?
Resilien-C is a whole food source of vitamin C.
Whole food vitamin C is simply vitamin C, with many of the additional factors found in plants that synthesize vitamin C. The key molecule that provides all of the benefits is still vitamin C. However, with the additional factors involved, there may be some interplay that has yet to be discovered.
So what are some of those factors?
- Vitamin C transporters that help transport vitamin C inside of the plant cells effectively - though, there is no confirmation it would work on human cells that are dramatically different.
- Certain sugars and their epimers. These are essentially sugars that are mirrors of one another. Like D-glucose, D-mannose and L-galactose.
- OXR proteins involved in increasing the amount of vitamin C in plants to help them combat damage.
- Ascorbigen which is simply a precursor molecule before vitamin C gets liberated in the first place.
- Vitamin P, or the so called PJK factors, which actually are simply flavonoids. This is the one true benefit of whole food vitamin C. With flavonoids, vitamin C can be retained within tissue slightly better. But in a diet with adequate flavonoids, it becomes redundant.
So while not exactly the same as pure vitamin C, the entire point of the supplement is simply to provide vitamin C in the first place.
Resilien-C also consists of amla berry, camu camu, rosehips, and contains very trace amounts of copper, other minerals and some of the bioflavonoids mentioned.
For those that are afraid to take isolated nutrients such as ascorbic acid, Resilien-C is a great alternative.
The only thing is that you have to consume a large amount of whole food C to get the same amount of vitamin C as concentrated ascorbic acid powder or capsules.
The bioflavonoids have unique effects separate from ascorbic acid including:
Rutin, a bioflavonoid in whole food vitamin C, attaches to iron (Fe2+) and prevents it from binding to hydrogen peroxide, called the Fenton Reaction. It also decreases capillary permeability, making the capillaries less leaky and improving circulation. It is also neuroprotective, hepatoprotective, antihypertensive, antivaricose, an internal sunscreen, and an immunomodulator.

The Vitamin C of ALL Vitamin Cs. One I can truly trust to do what it needs especially during the cold/flu season! I was sick off and on throughout winter last season, and since taking this Vitamin C (and a group of other MitoLife products) I can gratefully say I have not been sick once this winter. Thankful for vitamins you can truly trust!
This Vitamin C protects against colds and other common ailments. It is NOT ascorbic acid, but real fruits and berries and I trust it to get me through stressful times when my immune system is really challenged. I am nearly 80 years old and use Resilien-C every day.
I love all the supplements sold here. I’m curious why the vitamin c is said not to be taken while pregnant or lactating?
This vitamin C has made a huge difference in clearing up my skin from acne and dark spots. I will never go without it!
Great quality products are becoming difficult to find! Very happy I found this brand MitoLife! One of the view Vitamin C supplements I can take! No negative side effects like other brands have caused. I will definitely continue to use Resilien vitamin C!
