It's easy on the stomach because it's buffered with calcium, and helps to relieve constipation along with magnesium citrate or oxide powder. I take it daily on an empty stomach and eat an hour later. The dose varies and I take between 1g and 3g once a day. The taste is not too bad.
Ascorbic acid, while a great antioxidant and immune booster, can have the effect of being harsh on the stomach. A buffered form like this retains the same potency, without the aforementioned drawback and strong taste. An added bonus is a few extra mg's of calcium to boot! I've always liked the quality of NOW products, and this one doesn't disappoint either. Packaged as a powder, you can vary the dosage instead of being stuck with a set sized capsule. Very few filler ingredients means you're only getting what you need and nothing else.
Wonderful quality as always from NOW, huge size, perfect for immunity and has a wonderful effect on all areas of health! Most people do not consume enough vitamin C daily and a small boost would greatly help their health. Make sure to increase dosage by two or three if sick, search up bowel titration with vitamin c!
I cant take any form of acid so have to take calcium Ascorbate to get my Vit C intake. this brand is the best brand ive found very happy with this product. I also suffer from asthma & allergies 🤧 this form of Vit C helps me year round .💜
This low-acidity form of vitamin C is gentle on your stomach. This means you can take higher doses (i.e. 1/4tsp = 1000 mg) without it causing diarrhea. So you get all the antioxidant and immunity effects... without cramping and loose bowels.
This type of Vitamine C is for ones don't want the acidic form for any reason (heartburn, problem with the taste). So this brands Calcium ascorbate is a good choice for Vitamin C users.
Great buffered vitamin c product with pretty clean ingredients. Pretty gentle on my stomach which is nice. Isn't flavoured, which I love. There is a funny taste, but I've gotten use to it
This product is so good in improving my bone health, and it also brightens my skin in just a couple of days of taking it, I'm impressed!
We’ve been using this for years. Great source of vitamin C and easy to take mixed with a little juice, you don’t taste it. Doesn’t bother my stomach at all.
This vitamin works well to keep your immune system at peak performance. The quality is great. I mix a teaspoon in my smoothie everyday. A bonus is it does not upset your stomach since it is buffered.
