► All is Good BUT This is NOT a Non-GMO Vitamin C Product !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on November 29 2013 | Verified Purchase

This Calcium Ascorbate product offered by Now Foods combines Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) with Calcium Carbonate. Calcium Ascorbate is a form of Vitamin C which is much more readily absorbed in the blood stream than the other forms of calcium. Importantly, Calcium is coupled with Vitamin C to deliver the benefits of both Calcium & Vitamin C. All is good with this Vitamin C product except it is NOT a Non-GMO product. It means, this is a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) product. If you take a Vitamin C supplement with Ascorbic Acid and you guessed it, you are likely consuming a supplement with GMO origins, unless the corn was certified organic. The main source for Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C is corn which extensively corrupt material made by Monsanto and others. In fact, 98% of corn crops are GMO tainted. Regarding the taste, with the pH level in the range of 7 to 7.5, it's pH neutral, very gentle to stomach and basically almost tasteless when mixed in water with no sweetener/flavouring ingredient added. This product is suitable for those who are sensitive to strong acidic or have gastric irritation. However, if you are looking for something Non-GMO Vitamin C product, this will not suit you. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects. I hope you'll find my review Helpful to you. Best wishes and good health to everyone!

Vitamin C as Calcium Ascorbate Powder

Posted by iHerb Customer on October 17 2011 | Verified Purchase

This form of vitamin C may be taken at high-dosage without any side effects. Linus Pauling used calcium ascorbate for his research into the many, many benefits of vitamin C. Dr. Levy wrote a book, "Curing the Incurable", describing the amazing cures he obtained in his own medical practice by infusing patients with 100,000mg IV of vitamin C, including reversing otherwise fatal doses of poisons and curing cancer. Calcium ascorbate powder is easily dissolved in water or juice in order to achieve high doses of C, plus it supplies calcium and supports an alkaline diet.

Tastes better than the other one.

Posted by Jennie on August 24 2009 | Verified Purchase

This taste better than the other vitamin C powder by Now Foods. I can't remember the name but it's the one with rose hip. This one has a bit of a tart/chalky taste but when mixed with juice you can't taste it all as whereas the other one would alter the taste of the juice.

Less expensive than other brands.

Posted by iHerb Customer on November 16 2009 | Verified Purchase

This powder version is very easily dissolved in juice, tea, coffee. As long as you have at least 6oz. of drink, you will not notice a taste. The taste is bitter straight up or mixed in water. Since it's buffered with calcium, you have to make sure you don't take too much. My son's pediatrician recommends 1/2 teaspoon (about 1,600 mg of vitamin C) per day, and that's 200 mg of calcium, which the doctor said is not very absorbed by the body.

Excellent C

This is a great form of C, easy to mix with juice and not objectionable in taste. Try it at the first sign of a cold -- it really helps!

Great antihistamine

Posted by iHerb Customer on October 23 2013 | Verified Purchase

I appear to suffer from a condition called "Histadelia" - too much histamine in the body, which not just makes you way more susceptible to allergies, it also makes you more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression. Whether you believe Histadelia is a real illness or not, I do know that I have way more histamine than usual floating around my body. I sprayed some deodorant on, which always makes me very wheezy. I then took about 1/2 teaspoon of this powder, and within 20 minutes my airways were completely clear. It worked just as well as my Ventolin inhaler that I take for asthma! I have been taking 1/2 teaspoon three times a day for the last week and my mood is starting to get a bit brighter. Vitamin C destroys histamine while calcium is supposed to release it from the cells, so together it is a great natural way to remove histamine from the body, instead of just blocking the symptoms of it, which is all antihistamine tablets do. One thing I have noticed is that about 2 hours after I take it, I get a histamine reaction (feeling itchy in my body) but as far as I know this is a temporary thing as all the histamine is being released out of your cells. I will update in a few weeks/months.

I mix this in with a drink with Super Collagen and a Whey powder. After catching things constantly, this mix seems to be helping me overcome tiredness and I heal faster.
