On Products-With-Reviews page, I have more reviews of other products I have bought and used. WHOLEFOOD vitamin C supports your immune health. But it has another quality often overlooked by dermatologists and the skin-care industry. Vitamin C could very well be one of the most underappreciated beauty enhancers in the world. Not only does it protect your skin from free radical damage to help keep your face smooth and even-toned, it also helps your body create something that is the telltale marker of youth – collagen. Topical collagen is too big to be absorbed through the pores in your skin. It’s much more effective to supplement vitamin C. And if you can get enough, you’ll start to notice a difference in the elasticity and overall feel of your skin. Vitamin C will help keep your body producing healthy, normal amounts of collagen for fresh, glowing skin, hair and nails.
That 'natural C' is completely differnet to ascorbic acid is just complete guff. They act the same way in the body, except buying 'natural C' like this costs you hundreds of times more and make it very unlikely you'll ever take a dose big enough to do anything much for you at all. Ditch this and take 10 or more grams of the vitamin C the vitamin C experts and pioneers all use - ascorbic acid. This is the form of vitamin C that animals make in their livers and kidneys and that humans used to make in their livers and kidneys. Our bodies are primed to use this form of vitamin C! This product is fine to take alongside ascorbic acid..extra bioflavs are always good, but it is not enough by itself as the dose is far too low.
Great Whole Food C, but too many dang caps to take!

I am a "C" enthusiast, so was excited to take Whole Food C, not the synthetic stuff. Low and Behold, to get to my standard 1,000 per day, I would need to take EIGHT (8) of these capsules. WHAT? Obviously something I overlooked in my hurry to get on the "glee-bus" of whole C. I will finish up the bottle, but look for other sources (I've been fond of Solgar, but spendy) Any ideas for a quality C would be graciously appreciated! :0)
Why sent from the Ohio warehouse in 98°F weather to S. California
Posted by PurplePegasus on Jul 03, 2016
it was a balmy 74 degrees in Southern California when I ordered this. I expected it to come from the Inland Empire warehouse in California. For some silly reason they shipped this from Ohio, where it was 98°F and it took 3 days to arrive and roasted in 98° F weather. Goodness knows how hot it was in the back of a UPS truck & warehouses those 3 days, possibly reached 120°F in there. heat-sensitive supplements such as these are not to be sent in such heat and I am always responsible buyer and never buy anything when our weather here is in the upper nineties. However since iherb has opened a warehouse in Ohio I can no longer control this so my shopping here has decreased by 80% in the past two years. Bottom line, this might be a good product but it is not effective for me like my other vitamin C.
Too many pills necessary
Posted by Reviewer3186500 on Apr 26, 2016
Is a good product, but 6 pills a day are too much. I've been taking only 2, and it seems to work properly. I've liked not having digestive problems taking this.

Not much better than synthetics unless you are allergic to citrus
