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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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!

i used this to add to drinks as well as on skin. it gave me a flush on my facial skin. not sure what that meant. but i did feel like i received a bit of energy boost when i took it internally. so something must be right with it. i have not compared this to any other Vit c products out there. This was my first time trying and did not know what to expect. i'd say it seems ok so far. i did feel a difference. i'm going to take it more consistently to observe any other changes. Be careful not to take too much. It will have you running to the bathroom!
Great Value - love this product

I really need vitamin C due to various health conditions however, this one is not great. It dissolves relatively easily in water with a good stir for a minute or so, and the taste is ok but I find it often seems to cause me stomach issues. If I try to spread drinking it throughout the day and keep diluting it with extra water - that seems to help. But I never know if I will get the stomach pain and lots of BM's for sure or not. I am going to try Thorne Buffered Vitamin C as this is similar and I think might be better. I need the magnesium and calcium which it contains anyway. Plus Thorne is a higher quality brand, although NOW is ok.
