Buffered Vitamin C Powder
Cassava root source buffered vitamin C is processed with corn derived ingredients and is generally well tolerated by corn allergic individuals. It provides macro minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium carbonates which become mineral ascorbates in solution with a buffered, alkalizing action (6.8 in water).
As a dietary supplement, 1 heaping teaspoon or more in 8 to 12 ounces of liquid, between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Two teaspoons supply approximately the recommended dietary allowance of magnesium.
These nutrients are the highest quality obtainable, are free of all common plant and animal allergens (antigens), and do not contain artificial additives.
Appropriate for food-sensitive individuals.
Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped.

I have taken this for years with very great results. I started taking it at the recommendation of a chiropractor whom I heard lecture about fibromyalgia. She said to dissolve a rounded teaspoon in a LARGE glass (or even a pitcher) of water and drink it throughout the day and that it would take the edge off the pain of fibromyalgia... And that's exactly what it does.
We have tried a number of Buffered C powders and ARG's is our best choice. You get a lot more than just C and without a lot of common allergens. My husband is recovering from a serious illness and when he starts to feel bad physically, he will take a dose of Vitamin C powder. He can literally feel it hit his system within minutes. I think this is a definite benefit over pills or capsules that must take time to dissolve. We think this is an excellent product and value.
Works great!!! ♥♥♥ Click on my username for more reviews!

This helps with constipation and not just helping with colds. This buffered Vitamin C isn't a laxative, but it contains quickly absorbing vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. I put 1 tsp in a small 8oz water bottle since I can keep in mixed better and get all the 'gritty' stuff and follow with another cup. I don't think it has much taste.
Cost and nutrient efficient

I use this with my patients for good buffered C with added benefits of Cal, Mag, and potassium in the bargain!

We use it for supplementation of my ASD son on chelation. It is a good source of both vitamin C and essential minerals Ca, Mg, and K. The taste is almost nonexistent, which enables us mixing the powder into my boy's drinking water (+ a drop of liquid stevia).
