    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that is involved in quite a few bodily processes. Due to the fact that it is water-soluble‚ you need to consume it daily in order to fully benefit. While citrus fruits like oranges are great dietary sources‚ supplementation can provide additional insurance.

    One of the most important functions of vitamin C (which is also known as ascorbic acid) is to serve as an antioxidant. This means that the vitamin works to fight off free radicals that can enter the body and damage cells. Free radicals may also contribute to an older-looking appearance.

    Furthermore‚ vitamin C may strengthen your immune system. Contrary to popular belief‚ it can't prevent or cure the common cold. However‚ it may lessen the severity or duration of its symptoms.

    In addition‚ ascorbic acid is needed to support the repair and growth of tissues throughout the body. It can help you heal from wounds and form protective scar tissue while also working to maintain strong bones‚ teeth‚ and cartilage. The tendons‚ blood vessels‚ skin‚ and ligaments are all created with a protein that requires vitamin C in order to be made.

    Unlike other vitamin C supplements‚ Pure Encapsulations' Buffered Ascorbic Acid Capsules are less likely to irritate the stomach. If you have a sensitive gastric system‚ this formulation may be for you; it creates a neutral pH form of vitamin C by combining magnesium‚ potassium‚ and calcium ascorbate.

    Take two to six vegetarian capsules daily‚ in divided doses. You can use this supplement either with or between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 90-capsule bottle should last from 15 to 90 days.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Pros

      No additives and does not upset my system.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great Product

    I love Pure Encapsulations products. No fillers not gelatin capsules. Buffered Ascorbic Acid is great. Does not upset my stomach and is better for you because it contains a proper balance of the major essential buffering minerals: calcium, magnesium and potassium. I use the powder for my Vitamin C flush and the capsules daily in between. I have some severe food intolerances, so I was actually suffering from scurvy!!! It is not as uncommon as one might think. One vitamin C flush and three days of these capsules and my symptoms disappeared.


    Pros

      Pure Encapsulations has no fillers or other inactive ingredients.

    Cons

      It is missing Zinc Ascorbate.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
