Too acidic

3 people found the following review helpful

Posted by Reviewer1148576 From Australia on Dec 27, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this as an alternative to calcium ascorbate, which I add to mineral water and drink. However, the mag ascorbate tasted very acidic and when tested with a ph strip tested highly acid. I had to add coral calcium to the drink. I would not purchase this again.

Should be used by everyone. Excellent detoxifier. No problem when used by toddler children. Shelf live is somewhat short so use fairly quickly. Short shelf life is a GOOD sign. NOW please DO NOT change this product. I wish that NOW would use screw on tops so I could recylce the bottles for other uses.

Misleading title - won't buy again

It appears to be a quality product, but it's way too acidic - it upsets my stomach even in much lower doses. I've also noticed some weird reactions with fruit juice (it formed some grey lumps before dissolving). The product name is totally misleading, made me believe I was buying a magnesium supplement improved by vitamin C and not the opposite. They should call it buffered vitamin C or something and write magnesium ascorbate on the back label only, with tiny letters - unless this confusion really helps their sales...

i like this. it's a powder. but i don't mind. ascorbate is a higher absorption/bioactive than say oxides, carbonates or sulfates (i've been told).

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.
