Now Sodium Ascorbate Powder is an inexpensive buffered form of Vitamin C and is Pharmaceutical Grade.
Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health. Vitamin C is also needed for amino acid metabolism, hormone synthesis, and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals generated during normal metabolism. This product supplies Sodium Ascorbate, a buffered form of Vitamin C that is gentler on the stomach.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/2 level teaspoon daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: Citrus Bioflavonoids, Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
This product sold by weight not volume.
Store in a cool, dry place after opening. Please recycle.
Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

There is something about the "salt" form of Vit. C., sodium ascorbate, that performs much better in the body than conventional Vit. C (ascorbic acid). I get an energy hit every single time I take this, whereas taking ascorbic acid never did much for me -- I still bruised a lot, for instance. I can feel the difference with sodium ascorbate. Some places charge a lot for USP grade sodium ascorbate, but NOW brand is identical and very reasonably priced (it isn't expensive to manufacture). I mix mine in a half glass of hot water to dissolve it, and drink it, several times a day; it tastes a little salty but isn't unpleasant. Highly recommended.
This product improved the growth of my corals in my reef tank and also keeps the algae growth in check....amazing. I use 1tsp/day in 100gallons of salt water.

Dear reader, This product is very beneficial, it helped my sister when she was about to get a cold. She just took half a teaspoon and the symptoms were gone in an hour. Literally! Also my friend who got stomach virus and threw up for two days straight, called me on the 3rd day and I gave her full teaspoon. After she drank it, the nausea and the pain in her stomach gradually disappeared throughout the day. Not only this product is an amazing antioxidant, it's also good for killing bacteria and viruses since it contains sodium bicarbonate. I only have positive experience with it, and so do my friends and family!
Seems okay, the cat tolerates it.

This seems okay, like it is all the buffered sodium ascorbate. I don't know if it is originally from sugar beets or corn, and it is impossible to know if there is any GMO or not, but NOW products are generally reliable and reasonably-priced. The taste is equivalent to some guaranteed pure sodium ascorbate I used to buy - that's the simplest indication.
