Thorne Research, Buffered C Powder, 8 oz (227 g)36 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- Dietary Supplement
For individuals sensitive to the acidity of pure ascorbic acid
- A buffered vitamin C supplement for individuals with a sensitive or compromised digestive system
- Made with pure, crystalline vitamin C
- An inexpensive source of vitamin C and the major minerals
- The easiest way to take a higher amount of vitamin C
High amounts of vitamin C – several grams daily – have been advocated for optimizing both immune function and antioxidant support. Evidence for the efficacy of consuming high amounts of ascorbic acid is due in large part to the groundbreaking research conducted in the 1970s and 1980s by two-time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, PhD.
Taking high amounts of vitamin C can be a challenge for individuals who have sensitive or compromised digestive systems. For these individuals, Thorne Research has developed Buffered C Powder. Each scoop supplies the same pure, crystalline vitamin C found in Thorne's Pure Ascorbic Acid, along with a blend of calcium, magnesium, and potassium mineral ascorbates that serve as a buffer, allowing sensitive individuals to take large amounts of vitamin C with ease and comfort. In addition to 2,350 mg of vitamin C in each scoop, Buffered C Powder provides 350 mg each of calcium and magnesium and 99 mg of potassium.
Add 1 heaping (5.3g) scoop to 8 ounces of water one to two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.
Tamper Evident: Use only if bottle is sealed.
If pregnant, consult your health care-practitioner before using this product.
Store tightly sealed in a cool, dry place.
