- 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.

I have chronic fatigue and having tried many different brands of Vitamin C this Thorne product is the easiest on my stomach. Other brands were acidic and an irritant and some gave me heart burn.
I add this to my dog's food and she has recovered amazingly well from a life-threatening condition. My cats get some in their food as well. It's easier on all of our digestive systems than straight ascorbic acid. Thorne Research makes the best quality, magnesium stearate-free products I have found!
Great quality and gentle on the stomach

I can really feel the difference having switched from tablets (a different brand) to the powder. Thorne products are always so reliable, excellent quality. It's much easier to take the buffered C in larger quantities than unbuffered.
high quality, but...

Great product, love the effervescence. I take it when I'm stressed out or working hard, and an hour or two before bed for a good sleep. I notice a big difference in sleep quality and energy levels without it.

Quick and easy way to get good quality vitamin C. Just mix it in water and drink. This is my first purchase from iHerb and it was so quick and easy that I will definitely be buying all my supplements here from now on.
