  • This Buffered Vitamin C Powder was designed by Thorne Research specifically for people who are sensitive to the acidity of pure ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is the pure version of vitamin C.

    If you have shown a sensitivity to pure vitamin C‚ or if you have a compromised digestive system‚ you may benefit from this buffered version of vitamin C. This supplement‚ by Thorne Research is made with pure‚ crystallized vitamin C‚ which results in the easiest way to take high doses of this acidic vitamin.

    Benefits of High-Dose Vitamin C

    High doses (of several grams daily) may improve the functioning of the immune system function and antioxidant support. Vitamin C may work to combat stress‚ remove heavy metals (like mercury and lead) from the body‚ kill Candida bacteria‚ support a good balance of healthy bacteria in the gut‚ and promote cardiovascular health.

    Vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits‚ broccoli‚ kale‚ bell peppers‚ parsley‚ cauliflower and strawberries‚ among many other fruits and vegetables. Still‚ with the standard American diet‚ it is quite common for people to consume low levels of this vitamin. If you think you may not be getting enough vitamin C‚ or if you think you can benefit from additional antioxidant support‚ a vitamin C supplement would be a suitable addition to your daily routine.

    Certain people‚ such as those who smoke‚ are pregnant‚ suffer from alcoholism or take certain drugs‚ require an additional supply of vitamin C in their diet in order to support proper functioning of the immune system. If you fall into any of these categories‚ talk to your doctor about supplementing with Buffered C Powder.

    The Thorne Research Difference

    Certain people have trouble absorbing and digesting vitamin C‚ especially in high doses. If you have a sensitive or compromised immune system‚ this is especially so. This is exactly why Thorne Research developed its Buffered Vitamin C Powder. Each and every scoop contains the same quality of ascorbic acid that is in Thorne Research’s Pure Ascorbic Acid product. In addition to the pure vitamin C‚ this buffered C supplement also includes a blend of magnesium‚ potassium and calcium mineral ascorbates that function as a buffer. It is this buffer that helps soften the impact of the high doses of high ascorbic acid. When creating this supplement‚ Thorne Research made it its mission to provide a product that would allow sensitive people to take high doses of ascorbic acid with comfort and ease.

    This supplement includes a full dose of 470 milligrams of vitamin C in each scoop‚ accompanied by 350 milligrams of calcium‚ 350 milligrams of magnesium‚ and 99 milligrams of potassium.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Can't live without it

    Thorne Research Buffered C Powder is recommended by my Natropath, I've been using Buffered C Powder for approx. 5 years, I have sever food and environmental allergies and it is a huge help in downgrading my symptoms.

    Pros

      Buffered C Powder is easy to use and does what I expect. Thorne Research is a great product line and I buy several of their items. Thank you PureFormulas for the free shipping. A local retailer is NOT convenient.

    Cons

      I suppose it could be flavored but that would negate the fact that it would no longer be a "pure" product.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    wonderful product

    I've been using Buffered C Powder by Thorne Research for several years now. Buffered C Powder helps my bowel movement to stay regular. Also, I rarely get sick from cold or flu. I think this C is helping me a lot. I would recommend Buffered C Powder by Thorne Research for anyone.

    Pros

      Because it is powder, it is easy to adjust the amount. I usually take two scoops a day, which is a lot of C. The price is very reasonable as well.

    Cons

      The fizz. I don't like soft drinks, so the fizz also bothers me. But I got used to it after a while.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Chemical sensitivity relief!

    I was told that buffered C worked great when you are having an allergy attack in my case chemical sensitivities from perfumes/colognes in the office. This has helped me GREATLY. I have told a few others that suffer from allergies as well. I highly recommend this product as it is pure from filler additives that I certainly dont need to worry about causing me additional problems and it is a high dose of C per scoop. It is buffered with mag/cal which is good for my bones and makes the C gentle on my stomach. I have ordered 3 times now buying 2 each time. I take 2-3x a day. Great product!

    Pros

      pure great way to get magnesium and calcium gentle on my stomach works for allergy reaction within minutes (chemical sensitivities)

    Cons

      little pricey but worth it for me because it works

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Vitamin C helps me detox

    I enjoy taking vitamin c when I dont feel well due to candida die-off and bad bacteria toxins. I thought to try this Thorne product as I have used other Thorne products in the past and have felt they are of great quality.

    Very helpful for detox

    This was recommended by my chiropractor to help support my body detoxing heavy metals and other toxins. It really does help. I also started giving it (smaller amount) to my son because he was getting DAILY nosebleeds and we had tried so many other things to no avail when I came across a recommendation to take vitamin C for nosebleeds. I figured it wouldnt hurt to try it so I started giving this to him and his nosebleeds (which previously happened daily - often more than 1/day) stopped. If we accidentally forget a day he almost always gets a nosebleed. Pure Formulas has the best price I found for Thorne Research products. And I love the free shipping!

    Great Product

    My 10 year old son with Autism has had chronic constipation since beginning solid food. After years of prescription medication we were advised by our doctor to try this product. We have been using 1 cap full mixed with water or juice for over a year and it works wonderfully. He is now off all medication for constipation. We are so thankful for this wonderful product!!

    Pros

      Easy to use inexpensive and does a great job!!

    Cons

    Very good product

    My chiropracter internest recommended this product. I tried switching to a similar less expensive product and discovered the other product had LEAD in it. I returned the product and ordered more Thornes brand. I seem to be getting healthier all the time. Also I give this to my husband. We are in our 70s and the doctor said all seniors should be taking this.
