Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
Now Alpha-Sorb C contains the Vitamin C metabolite, Threonic Acid, which has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C. This buffered, non-acidic Vitamin C supplement also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, an antioxidant known to help regenerate Vitamin C in the body. Furthermore, studies suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may enhance the body's utilization of Vitamin C. The addition of Bioflavonoids as synergists helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective Vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablet daily, preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Pycnogenol and Tru-E BioComplex.

This is a great vitamin C supplement, but don't take too much at first as it may upset the digestive system.
Exceptional Vitamin C

I like that this product includes bioflavenoids, which help with the absorption of vitamin C and improves the ease of breathing for asthmatics. When I take it on a regular basis I do not get any bronchitis episodes. Brilliantly buffered formulated to protect stomach. Great value!

I believe that this vit c works more effectively than the buffered vit C tablets that I have been taking. I do like the fact that it has alpha lipoic acid in it too, as I've been intending to add this to my supplements to take.
