By the gram this is the cheapest source of vitamin C. Don't waste your money buying pill versions of vitamin C, just use this powdered form. This is Pharmaceutical grade which means the pH must be within a set range. Now Foods sodium ascorbate is consistently very close to neutral value of 7.0 pH, the best. Use this a a substitute for salt in salad dressing. Mix 1-3 grams in fruit salads. Add it to all store bought fruit juice. Put a teaspoon (3 grams) in a cup of hot water flavored with tea or citrus juice and sweetened with styvia or xylitol. Dink this and you will instantly stop a cough. What ever you do, get at least 10 grams of this into your body every day spaced out in 3-4 doses, 2-3 grams each. Occurrence Colds and flu will be reduced dramatically and you will feel better. Your night vision will improve. Read the book "Ascorbate" by Dr. Hickey and Dr. Roberts for a summary of current research and more info on how this vitamin works.

Best vitamin C powder EVER

Purchased at iHerb

I have tried numerous brands of vitamin C powder, and unlike every other brand, this doesn't have that horrible bitter taste. Try mixing a teaspoon of this into 1 cup of orange juice or grape juice - you won't even taste that it's there. It's especially good in Apple & Eve's grape juice with a few pretzels on the side. Try a small bottle of this to see if you like it as much as I do before saving yourself some money and buying this huge size.

The master nutrient

Vitamin C is the ultimate nutrient, everyone should take several grams a day for optimal longevity and health. Sodium ascorbate is the best form because it is alkaline and doesn't have the downsides of ascorbic acid. I recommend 5 to 10 grams a day, for women it is best taken with meals to increase iron absorption, for men it should be taken on an empty stomach as increased iron absorption isn't a good thing for men unless you're deficient. Take it everyday especially under highly stressful conditions, stress depletes vitamin C downhill fast. Vitamin C is a truly polyvalent multivitamin, it prevents cancer, it repairs organs from damage, it sustains skin collagen and skin health, it helps with adrenal fatigue, it helps with stress, it helps with blood coagulation, etc... This huge pot is excellent, it is enough to last for 6 months and is cost effective.

The perfect vitamin

Posted by Reviewer1949588 on Jul 22, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

I first started taking Vitamin C at the suggestion of my Mother and then a few years ago by Dr Alfred Libby who suggested taking larger quantities, 8 -12grams a day. To do this I needed to do it in the form of Sodium Ascorbate to be able to take that much. The result is that I have not had a cold or the flu for years. If I could only take 1 vitamin it would be Vitamin C.

Vitamin C intake and keeping an alkaline base

Posted by WholeFoods4HealthyLiving on Jun 29, 2010

Purchased at iHerb

Great way to take vitamin C and maintain an alkaline base in your system. Tablets tend to be more acidic.
