Fine Ascorbic Acid dissolves more readily in liquids than regular crystalline ascorbic acid. This product 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 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.
Store in a cool, dry place after opening.
Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

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.
Excellent as expected

I make my own apple juice. I use this product in the juice to prevent oxidation of the juice which gives the juice a brownish color. With each batch of juice, about 2 1/2 gallons, I add about 3 tablespoons of Vitamin C Crystals. This gives the juice a much more desirable color and is more appealing to the eye.

I've been using this brand of vitamin C crystals for a while, and I am very happy with it. I usually combine it with lecithin granules.
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.
