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 needed for amino acid metabolism 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 and reactive oxygen species generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/2 level teaspoon 1 to 3 times daily, in juice or water.
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 is sold by weight not volume.

I have found this to be the best price and best item on the market. I take on average 20,000 mlg daily and if for some reason I get to feeling sick like during pollen season I just pump it up. I have taken as much as 150,000 mlg in a 36 hour time and did not get sick with what ever I was coming down with. Also my 88 year old father-in-law had surgery and was not doing well I started giving him mega doses of vitamin c and within 36 hours he was back to his old happy self. I love this product and believe in it so much I have order extra every time for friends.
I have been taking Vitamin C on a regular basis now for 30 years with nothing but beneficial effects. I have discovered through much tedious trial and error that all formulations save Emergen-C and Ascorbic Acid are completely worthless. Emergen-C and Ascobic Acid work equally well but Ascorbic Acid is a lot cheaper. I go through about 6 lbs. of Ascorbic Acid a year. It is one of the very few supplements for which the effect is obvious and almost immediate. I can't praise it highly enough.
I CAN'T RATE THIS FAIRLY as I have stayed with the more expensive option, 1000mg capsules

"NOW" make a great capsule so this should be good too, but I only keep this in reserve in case I run out of the 1000mg capsules. It disturbs me a little that it is on the label as Made in China.... can we trust it?

it doesnt say if its made with GMO corn. nutribiotic says its GMO free. plus theirs are cheaper in the 5lbs version. Been taking this now food version and it works fine. but will purchase the other brand in the future due to GMO safety.

"If you want results, use adequate ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)"

I am a fan of Vitamin C powder from the NOW company. However, with the crystals version of this product, My stomach becomes VERY bloated within 30 minutes of consuming one serving size of ½ teaspoon dissolved in water – This feeling of fullness and discomfort, along with a distended belly, persists the whole day. Very distressing. I will start taking smaller doses more frequently and dissolve them in a protein powder shake. If these actions does not alleviate the bloating, I’ll switch to another ascorbate form of Vitamin C. Finally, Also noticed a discrepancy between the back label content in the 3 lbs package I received and the label posted in the site. My version of the product states “Product of China. Packaged in the USA.” The posted label states this is “Manufactured in the USA” . Very disappointed, at the moment, with the label content discrepancy and with a $45+ product creating these distressing issues.
Great Vit. C

This large quantity of Vit. C is great to have on hand to treat any illness. Look into mega dosing with Vit. C. It is very tart tasting so I have to mix it in juice. Applesauce would probably work for kids and toddlers. I started mega dosing when I felt the start of a cold and with just 3 doses in one evening, I could tell a big difference. The symptoms had majorly decreased and by the next day had stopped. I was trying to take a tsp about every 45 minutes or so. Avoiding all processed sugar and junk will also greatly help stopping an illness.
