For Sensitive Digestive Systems
It can be a challenge to ingest higher amounts of vitamin C for those who have a sensitive digestive system. Our Buffered Vitamin C Powder formula addresses this concern head on by including buffering minerals to help avoid irritation to the stomach and intestinal lining.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while inhibiting its oxidation. Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones and teeth.
Vitamin C needed when stress hits
More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress. Physical stresses may also increase the need for vitamin C.
Our Buffered Vitamin C Powder contains four buffering minerals, in addition to ascorbic acid. When mixed with water, it produces a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach and intestinal lining. The minerals also make it a more pleasant-tasting and healthful drink. The substances used in this product make it effervesce for a short while when it’s mixed with water.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
Mix one (1) teaspoon of Buffered Vitamin C Powder into a glass of water. Wait for the fizz to stop before consuming. The minerals buffer out the normally acidic vitamin C to make a pleasant tasting drink.
