Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation. Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth. A major immune-supporting activity of vitamin C is boosting glutathione levels in human lymphocytes, cells that make up about 25% of all white cells in the blood.
More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress. Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals, cigarette smoking, immune impairment, extreme temperatures, and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also signal the need for increased intake of vitamin C.
Vitamin C Powder contains four buffering minerals, in addition to ascorbic acid. When mixed with water, this product produces a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach and intestinal lining. The minerals also make it a more pleasant-tasting and healthful drink. The substances used in this product make it effervesce for a short while when it is mixed with water.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
Mix one (1) teaspoon of Buffered Vitamin C Powder into a glass of water. Wait for the fizz to stop before consuming. The minerals buffer out the normally acidic vitamin C to make a pleasant tasting drink.
Density may vary from lot to lot.
To ensure product consistency store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.
Caution: Consuming high doses of this potent product can initially cause diarrhea, especially when taken on an empty stomach. Take with meals starting off low and gradually increasing the dose.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I've taken mega-doses of vitamin c daily for decades. This is my favorite. It is buffered, so it won't cause stomach upset. It is also quite economical, and doesn't taste too bad. Highly recommended. I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.
I like this powder. Put it in my daily water. The ingredients are good, it has a slight fizz to it and no sugar. One teaspoon provides 4,000 mg. of Vitamin C and it doesn't upset my stomach
Don't know what you mean?

Relief of Abdominal Pain & Bloating.

I have been to 5 doctors in 2 years, and no one could find out why I am constantly bloated, with sever abdominal pain. A sever Constipation. They have run every test and tried surgeries. I switched to a Homeopathic Dr. in Feb. 2014. He started me with the Stress out series. It works to stop the pain. Which was my most important goal. I looked on my own for the buffered Vitamin C, and found this. It gets rid of the pain and the bloating. The constaption is easier. Now I just have to keep taking it to see if it will get rid of all my fatigue. It taste great if you mix it with Miso drink enhancements and a little sugar. It has a sour kick. BUT It WORKS! I LOVE IT!!!!!
