On the front of the pack it states - "120 grams of powder". On the other side it states - "for 500 mg of Vitamin C take 1 rounded teaspoon daily", "30 servings in a container". Using simple maths we can calculate that in these 120 grams of powder there is only 15 grams of vitamin C, 15 grams of vitamin C for $15? No. thank you! Secondly, I did not witness any changes whatsoever.
I don't know why supplement companies can't stop using fillers in their products. Instead of the usual toxic fillers like stearic acid (sometimes listed as "vegetable lubricant" so we don't know, some companies like this one and pure synergy have switched to manioc root as a filler. This is yucca root, which contains saponins. Saponins mimic cortisol in our body but it is not real cortisol. I couldn't figure out why Alive C was making me agitated and gave me a bad case of the shivers. I know that cortisol places thyroid hormone into the cells, so my thyroid level must have dropped due to the cortisol blocking effects of the manioc root. (?) My gut feeling that it did. I also woke up at 3AM with a bad headache when I took the product at bedtime. I am going to stick with camu camu powder, which iherb also sells, and give up on trying to find a high dose natural C. Madre Labs has great looking product, but sadly has worse fillers than Alive C. Vitamin C is supposed to ease stress by helping the adrenals not stress them, so I know it is probably the manioc root filler that is the cause. This product might not be good for high blood pressure because of the saponins. Do some research before buying.

More than Just Vitamin C

This is more than just Vitamin C. It is a powder that has a foundation of nutritional support in addition to the Vitamin C. I usually dissolve it in a cup of water along with some acidophilus and psyllium seed for a smooth, easy, and gentle laxative.

The taste is mild and powder is fine. alive vitamin c is definitely the best type of vitamin c you should get! Don't buy those as ascorbic acid type out there!!!!ascorbic acid is not pure vitamin c! It is a singled out chemical compound from vitamin c and cannot be considered true vitamin c! Ascorbic acid are produced from labs and are essentially synthetic. alive vitamin c is using 4 fruits grounded into powder and freezed dried to lock in all the nutrients. U are actually eating the full spectrum of all the 4 fruits like eating the real fruits! That should be the type of vitamin c u should be eating into your body! Eat fresh! However, if u eat actual real fruits, u can never eat enough qty to enjoy the therapeutic effects. Hence, a good quality "real" vitamin c like alive vitamin c is definitely highly recommended.
Good vitC probably but not cost effective.

This powder is likely a very safe and high quality Vit C (at laest in theory). It has very little taste so can be added to juice or cereal as claimed. Was a bit disappointed that it actually didn't have any flavor. Was expecting something refreshing in water I guess. The amount you have to use makes it rather uneconomical, but if price is no object and you don't mind messing with powders, then it is a good choice.
