Buffered Vitamin C Powder

by Allergy Research Group

Vitamin C is th body's most important water-soluble antioxidant nutrient and is involved in a wide variety of biochemical reactions throughout the body. Included in its functions is the synthesis of collagen, the basis of connective tissue, found in virtually every cell of the body. Because of its molecular structure, vitamin C is able to donate hydrogen atoms from two hydroxyl positions to neutralize free radicals. In addition, the body uses vitamin C during detoxification and inflammation processes, as well as immune system functions including white blood cells production, histamine release and degradation, the reduction of glutathione and the metabolism and protection of several other nutrients. In combination with other nutrients, vitamin C also supports the production of some neurotransmitters.

In addition to buffered vitamin content of absorbic acid, it also supplies potassium and the macrominerals calcium and magnesium at approximately one half of RDI per level teaspoon. Due to its generous complement of calcium (405 mg per teaspoon), supplementation with our buffered vitamin C may be desirable for individuals who do not regularly consume dairy products.

Each 1 teaspoon (4.7 g) contains: Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 2135 mg, Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate) 405 mg, Magnesium (as Magnesium Carbonate) 215 mg, Potassium (as Potassium Carbonate) 90 mg.

Other ingredients: Cellulose.

Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, 1 heaping teaspoon or more in 8 to 12 ounces of liquid, between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. As with all vitamin C formulations, as one begins to achieve body saturation, bowel tolerance may be temporarily exceeded and diarrhea or loose stools may occur. As the high levels of vitamin C in the tissues become used up, the bowel symptoms should ease. Ideal for controlling acidity often associated with hypersensitivity reactions. Supplies full dose, non-corn calcium/magnesium ascorbate.
