Product Overview


  • Antioxidant Protection
  • Threonic Acid & Alpha Lipoic Acid Enhanced
  • Buffered, Bioavailable Vitamin C
  • Transport C-Plus
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • GMP Quality Assured

NOW AlphaSorb-C includes Transport C-Plus, the trademarked blend of Threonic Acid Enhanced Buffered (non-acidic) Calcium Ascorbate and Alpha Lipoic acid. Threonic Acid (a Vitamin C metabolite) has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of vitamin C. Alpha Lipoic Acid is 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 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.

Vitamin C + ALA

Posted by dr-alex on Nov 21, 2015

Why AlphaSorb? Higher absorption - "move more Vitamin C through the body over a longer period of time", gentle to the stomach and of course the inclusion of Alpha Lipoic Acid, a truly multi-talented antioxidant "recycling plant!" You see, ALA has the ability to recycle or regenerate other antioxidants that have become inactive, such as vitamins C and E, CoQ10 and it even itself! Recommended serving size is 1 cap/day but when my body's immunity is compromised, I increase the dose to 3 caps/day (1-1-1). Highly recommended.

For anyone but especially a person who has AFS, this is an excellent Vit C taking less adrenal to break down and absorb.

Highly absorbable

Posted by vitality on Apr 17, 2012

Excellent product. Does a great job of strengthening the immune system - more absorbable than most forms of vitamin C. Also contains some bioflavinoids, which support capillary strength (the pith of an orange contains these as well).
