Product Overview

  • Antioxidant Protection
  • Vitamin C Powder
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian/Vegan

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.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1/2 level teaspoon daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: Citrus Bioflavonoids, Alpha Lipoic Acid.

Other Ingredients

Superior product

Posted by Reviewer1837533 on Jan 19, 2009

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.

- Convenient to Take High Dose -

Posted by Christal on Sep 19, 2011

This is more like crystals than powder, but it dissolves easily in food or drink; tastes SLIGHTLY salty as it has sodium. I add it to my cats' wet food for extra Vit.C when they need it; a tiny little bit is enough since the crystals pack so much power and they eat it happily and it seems to give them more energy. I pour it into empty capsules to make my own high-dosage Vit.C caps minus all the fillers. I even add it in my drinking water to drink throughout the day; since it's non-acidic, it does not irritate my sensitive stomach. It's a great convenient way to take high-dose Vit.C without having to swallow so many pills and the fillers that come with them. Thanks iHerb and Now Foods!

Great solution

Posted by ShanniP on Jul 19, 2012

Vitamin C powder is the best way of supplimenting the vitamin C that in this era the food just not have enough of. Better than swallowing pills. Usually I recommend the pure Ascorbic Acid powder (AKA Crystals), but the buffered Sodum Ascorbate is a wonderful solution for people with difficulty taking in the sour form. We sometimes addd it to salads or popcorn instead of adding salt. Since the sodium is connected to vitamin C and not to chlorine, it does not raise blood pressure like regular salt.

Great product

Posted by Reviewer3320551 on Jun 29, 2012

Used to use this product but they switched suppliers and I don't tolerate the new formula. Was a 5 star now it is a 2.
