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.
- Keep out of reach of children.
- Do not exceed recommended dose.
- Do not purchase if outer seal is broken or damaged.

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.
won't be ordering again. Vitamine C does it's job and the price is good. But I just didn't like it, also didn't completely solve well.
Definitely NOT a "pleasant tasting drink" - one star because I can't select zero stars

Tastes disgusting! Taste can only be disguised by adding to smoothies with strong flavours and/or magnesium powder which seems to hide the soapy taste sufficiently. Each time I've only taken 1 rounded teaspoon as recommended and have had the worst digestive discomfort all day! This might be a suitable product if you a) have perfect digestive health, and b) can stomach gross, soapy drinks...but otherwise stick to the usual Vitamin C tablets or powder!!! Wish I hadn't wasted my money!

This is super powder vitamin C supports immune system specially for cancer patients who need large amount of vitamin C during conventional treatments yet it's very gentle on the stomach. My mother has been taking 10 hm per day on divided dosages for nearly 11 months now with no complains...I highly Recommend ! If you like my review PLEASE hit YES button ^__^

concentrated C buffered and effective... a little goes a long way. I have to doctor the 'flavor' for my husband - but that is OK

Did you know a sick dog creates up to 25g of vitamine C to heal again? Vitamine C shows up in literally EVERY pathalogy, but beware when you take antacida containing aluminiumhydroxide. Anyway, I love this product!!
