Calcium Ascorbate is non-acidic (pH neutral), making it gentle on the digestive system. Vitamin C plays a vital role in the formation of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue), amino acid metabolism, hormone synthesis and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a key factor in the body's immune system.

The best I've tried
Doesn't dissolve completely
Posted by Reviewer1184969 on Sep 13, 2015
Despite what the label says (dissolves instantly), my experience was that it didn't completely dissolve. When I tried a different (more popular?) brand, it did dissolve completely. The taste of this product may also be somewhat more bitter than the other product.

I use it always when it comes to colds.It's not upsetting my stomach like other C forms do.
Too acidic for me
Posted by mcalmont-butler on Mar 18, 2014
Got this as ascorbic acid is way too acidic on my system. However, this is also pretty acidic and the taste is horrible. Money down the drain.
For people who can't tolerate ascorbic acid
