If you need to give your immune system a boost, one of the best ways to do so to make sure that you get more vitamin C on a regular basis. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can protect you against common viral infections such as the common cold and the flu. Aside from enhancing your immune system, vitamin C is also known as an effective histamine inhibitor. It also helps promote faster wound healing, and can help your body cleanse itself from pollutants and toxins. This nutrient may work to prevent the build-up of carcinogenic nitrosamines found in tobacco, smoked meat, beer, cheese, and other processed food products inside your stomach. Furthermore, vitamin C helps improve your body’s ability to absorb iron, and can delay the effects of age-related health conditions such as poor vision and macular degeneration.
Vitamin C can naturally be found in strawberries, tangerines, guavas, bell peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, papayas, oranges, and green leafy vegetables. If you want to strengthen your immune system, it’s recommended that you include these food types in your diet. However, vitamin C is naturally acidic, making it less than ideal for those with sensitive stomachs. Fortunately, there are several pH balanced vitamin C supplements available; one of them is Pure Encapsulations’ Buffered Ascorbic Acid. In addition to vitamin C, this supplement also contains:
Calcium ascorbate, a calcium and ascorbic acid compound that has a neutral pH, allowing for increased vitamin C absorption while limiting side effects like stomachaches and loose stools.
Magnesium ascorbate, a mineral responsible for converting blood sugar into energy while also supporting nerve and muscle function and preventing excessive blood clotting.
Potassium ascorbate, another non-acidic mineral rich with vitamin C, which works to slow down the aging process.
One bottle of Buffered Ascorbic Acid provides 250 vegetable capsules, and should last for at least one month. Take two to eight capsules daily in between meals, unless otherwise prescribed by your physician.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality, hypo-allergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

Buffered Ascorbic Acid 250 Vegetable Capsules by Pure Encapsulations
January 1, 2012
My doctor recommended Buffered Ascorbic Acid and I take 6 capsules a day. I never have an upset stomach from them, and my nutritional evaluations are improving. I have a malabsorption problem and have to supplement, so improved nutritional evaluations are good news.
