Comfort C(R) Provides Significantly Higher Absorption Than Other Leading Brand
Date:4/3/2008

SAN DIEGO, April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study presented today at the Experimental Biology 2008 Annual Meeting by researchers for Scientific Food Solutions (http://www.scientificfoodsolutions.com/pages/clinicals.html) demonstrates that Comfort C(R), the only clinically validated Vitamin C with Bioperine(R), provides 275 percent faster absorption in the first 60 minutes.

Gretchen Reece, President of Scientific Food Solutions said, "Body weight adjusted vitamin C concentration changes from baseline were significantly higher with Comfort C(R) than the other brand at 60 minutes. Comfort C 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.

"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. 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(R), 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."

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(R) than the other brand at 60 minutes (4.33+/-1.47 vs. 1.68+/-0.90; p=0.043). Vitamin C excretion in the urine did not differ between the supplements, despite the greater rate of absorption.

Conclusion: Comfort C(R) provides significantly faster absorption in the first 60 minutes, and may provide greater retention.
