By Now Foods46 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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.
