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 also needed for amino acid metabolism, hormone synthesis, 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 generated during normal metabolism. This product supplies Magnesium Ascorbate, a buffered form of Vitamin C that is gentler on the stomach.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 level teaspoon daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: Citrus Bioflavonoid Caps, Pycnogenol and Alpha Lipoic Acid.

I love having vitamin C and magnesium together. My favorite form of non-acidic vitamin C. Powder is more cost effective than capsules/tablets and is a great way to avoid fillers. Taste is ok.
Not what I expected

This gave me lots of gas and made my stomach very uncomfortable. I will stick to Ascorbic Acid. iHerb provides good customer service and picks, packs and sends out my orders in a timely manner and provide DHL service which is very fast. Thank you.

Earlier I used ascorbic acid which was acidic and had caused me intestinal cramps. now this product is really nice and i could even consume large doses without any issue.

This seems very good. Does what vit C is supposed to do - i.e. gets rid of very early infections in a big dose (3gms) and doesn;t seem different in results to other vitamin Cs. I take it cos the buffered sort is supposed to be better and cos i need Mg.
Not easy to take small doses - be mindful of vit C effects on hormones

Suggest any woman struggling with hormonal issues avoid mega doses of vit C - it's a proven aromatase inhibitor and will therefore cause a decrease in estrogen (though obviously that can be advantageous when estrogen is too high). At higher doses it can cause a decrease in both estrogen and progesterone. I've read that amounts over approx 750mg can start to cause hormonal changes that may not be beneficial.

This is a convenient and economical way to get your vitamin c while simultaneously increasing your magnesium intake. I use a quarter teaspoon every afternoon in my greens drink. I mixes well and I can really feel a difference when I use it. The taste is a bit sour (it would probably mix nicely with juice for those who find the flavor objectionable). Now Foods is an excellent company, making high-quality products at affordable prices. I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.
