Vitamin C is best known as an antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals. NOW AlphaSorb-C includes Transport C-Plus, a trademarked combination of Threonic Acid-enhanced, buffered (non-acidic) Calcium Ascorbate with Alpha Lipoic Acid. Threonic Acid is Vitamin C metabolite that has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C. Alpha Lipoic Acid functions as a free radical scavenger that can help regenerate Vitamin C in the body and may also enhance its utilization. With this unique formula, NOW has created a well-absorbed and highly biologically available Vitamin C supplement.

This product is unbelievable! I have a friend who has 8 children and they are never sick. I have one son and he was always sick with colds and allergies and he reacted poorly to allergy medication. One day I asked my friend how her children stayed so healthy. She told me about this product and I've been a believer ever since. I take 1 in the morning and 1 with dinner. If I start to feel like I'm getting sick or if I am plagued by post nasal drip due to allergies, I take one with lots of water and feel better, noticeably quick. I highly recommend this product !

No side effects

Posted by iHerb Customer on February 25 2017 | Verified Purchase

This uses the C to my wife because with other forms of vitamin has some problems with the stomach. Since the uses has not complained. Without any particular explanation I generally preferred the vitamins of C NOW who thought they were in good price and offer good results.

Thanks for your feedback!

Vitamin C + ALA

Posted by dr-alex on November 21 2015 | Verified Purchase

Why AlphaSorb? Higher absorption - "move more Vitamin C through the body over a longer period of time", gentle to the stomach and of course the inclusion of Alpha Lipoic Acid, a truly multi-talented antioxidant "recycling plant!" You see, ALA has the ability to recycle or regenerate other antioxidants that have become inactive, such as vitamins C and E, CoQ10 and it even itself! Recommended serving size is 1 cap/day but when my body's immunity is compromised, I increase the dose to 3 caps/day (1-1-1). Highly recommended.

Thanks for your feedback!

Excellent Vit C

Posted by iHerb Customer on June 1 2015 | Verified Purchase

For anyone but especially a person who has AFS, this is an excellent Vit C taking less adrenal to break down and absorb.
