Product Overview


  • Antioxidant Protection
  • Threonic Acid & Alpha Lipoic Acid Enhanced
  • Buffered, Bioavailable Vitamin C
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian Formula
  • Patent Pending

Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.

Now Alpha-Sorb C contains the Vitamin C metabolite, Threonic Acid, which has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C. This buffered, non-acidic Vitamin C supplement also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, an antioxidant known to help regenerate Vitamin C in the body. Furthermore, studies suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may enhance the body's utilization of Vitamin C. The addition of Bioflavonoids as synergists helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective Vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals.

"Magnesium Stearate or Stearic Acid cause a rapid collapse of T-cell membrane function and cell death HEALTH WARNING!The Truth About Vitamin Supplementshttp://www.qnlabs.com/warning.phpCheck your vitamin labels. Do they contain Magnesium Stearate or Stearic Acid? Studies by the University of Texas Health Science Center and the East Carolina University School of Medicine reveal that these toxic excipients cause a rapid collapse of T-cell membrane function and cell death; therefore suppressing the immune system. (Immunology, 1990, Jul.)It is estimated that 90% of the vitamin and mineral products consumed today contain stearates. Stearates are used as binders in tablets and in the processing of gelatin capsules. Consumers often take handfuls of capsules and tablets to get vitamins, minerals and other key nutrients from supplements that contain stearates, and instead, in reality, get a powerful immune suppressive treatment.For more information on this topic and copies of the above-quoted studies as well as other studies and warnings concerning stearates, contact us at service@.... QNL Quantum Rx Nutrition nutritional supplements are 100% free of toxic excipients, including magnesium stearate or stearic acid."The public must be more aware of nutritional products that initially bring a good vitamin or mineral but hurt you in other ways." (Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, Commissioner - Texas Department of Health, speaking before the Texas Strategic Health Partnership,University of Texas, Sept. 25, 2003..." http://www.indiadivine.org/audarya/ayurveda-health-wellbeing/1073808-magnesium-stearate-stearic-acid-cause-rapid-collapse-t-cell-membrane-function-cell-death.html

Exceptional Vitamin C

Posted by HuskyZen on Jun 01, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I like that this product includes bioflavenoids, which help with the absorption of vitamin C and improves the ease of breathing for asthmatics. When I take it on a regular basis I do not get any bronchitis episodes. Brilliantly buffered formulated to protect stomach. Great value!

I like it

Posted by Reviewer3092315 on Dec 08, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I believe that this vit c works more effectively than the buffered vit C tablets that I have been taking. I do like the fact that it has alpha lipoic acid in it too, as I've been intending to add this to my supplements to take.
