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 cell 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.

NOW needs to get on the non-GMO bandwagon. I wrote to them and asked if it was non-GMO and they said, no, it's not non-GMO. Bunch of double negatives in there but this is made with GMO corn. I threw away 3 bottles of this. I'll pay more for a non-GMO Vitamin C powder.
All is good with this Vitamin C product offered by Now Foods, except it is NOT a Non-GMO product. It means, this is a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) product. If you take a Vitamin C supplement with Ascorbic Acid and you guessed it, you are likely consuming a supplement with GMO origins, unless the corn was certified organic. The main source for Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C is corn which extensively corrupt material made by Monsanto and others. In fact, 98% of corn crops are GMO tainted. Regarding the taste, with the pH level in the range of 2.5 to 3, it's in the range of strong Acidic level and one can definitely expect a strong sour taste on this product as no sweetener/flavouring ingredient is added. Alkaline tastes a bit bitter in general. If you are looking for something Non-GMO Vitamin C product, this will not suit you. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects. I hope you'll find my review Helpful to you. Best wishes and good health to everyone!

Somebody adviced me this vitamin C in high doses. I started taking it and in in the beginning it felt good, clearing me in someway. But then I started to get something that look like urine/blather infection and the whole time its like i needed to go to toilet, a little pain and even blood was coming, I was shocked. A friend of my also began taking it and felt such a bakcpain en pressure behind the eyes...we both decided to stop, i adviced her. I know detoxing because i am a therapist but this wasn't it. I want to warn you that be carefull, I was afraid that my health stayed like this, but when i stopped, these health problems went, it took a while, also for my friend. Now I am gonna start a different brand from Holland, acid free, somebody said maybe the acid is to much for you.....I have never had troubles with this brand, but this one, really was not good for me.
