Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is also 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 such as folic acid and iron. It is also highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen molecules generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors. This product supplies Calcium Ascorbate, a buffered form of Vitamin C that is bioavailable and non-acidic; it is enhanced with Bioflavonoids, which work synergistically to support Vitamin C utilization.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 teaspoon (slightly rounded) 1 to 4 times daily. Mix into orange juice or other strong tasting juice to mask the taste. Consider taking these other NOW products: Alpha Lipoic Acid and Advanced Gamma E Complex.

Fantastic Vitamin C Supplement!!
Fantastic Vitamin C Supplement!!
I've bee using this supplement for years. It's the purest cleanest one I can find other than some of the "whole food" organic one's out there for $40 a tiny bottle. I'm a little surprised at some of these bad reviews on this supplement. This isn't candy or food , it's a supplement. Very natural and not bombarded with sugars ,fillers, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, or even magnesium Stearate not to mention it's buffered and has Rose hips, Acerola and Bioflavonoids. It's VERY difficult to find a supplement on the market like this. One review states they put it in a smoothie and can't even taste it yet still only gave it a two stars. It does taste terrible but that has absolutely no effect on the quality and results of this as a supplement. It's NOT candy, it's a supplement and a VERY good one at that.

Mixes readily enough and isn't overly-powerful in flavour. Does make anything I mix it with a horrible colour, though!!

Not a fan of how this tastes. Not planning to re-order this.

I meant to buy Now Foods Vitamin C CRYSTALS, but received this instead. It's buffered but doesn't dissolve well in water or juice. Very dry in the mouth. Not even sure I'm consuming the full amount. Seems to be at the bottom of the blender bottle.
Excellent use it all the time

I use this powder all winter to help keep immunity up. If I have a bug starting as I do now, I take a 1/4 teaspoon every 2 or 3 hours and it makes a huge difference. (Feel free to go to my iherb page by clicking on my username for my 100 plus reviews).
