  • 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.

    I found that Buffered C Powder by Thorne Research is the best on the market. In addition to having the THORNE labelling this Buffered C powder delivers 2350 mg per scoop and has the added benefits of calcium magnesium and potassium. Its an easy and great way to get the C I need.


    Pros

      The easiness of the scoop and its quick dissolvability in addition to the added ingredients of calcium magnesium and potassium.

    Cons

      Nothing!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

      Nothing.

    Pros

      nothing

    Cons

    Excellent

    Ive been taking Buffered C Powder for 5 years. Because it is a powder form it is easy to adjust the dosage. Im currently taking 2500mg to regulate my BM. I even tried Vitamin C flush under the instruction of my doctor to help eliminate candida. I dont know if it helped but I sure had good diarrhea! Excellent source for people with constipation. Good absorption as well. I gave 4 stars because I dont like the fizz and the flavor. Eventually youll get used to it but still it is not something I enjoy. Other than that Buffered C Powder is a great product and I would recommend it to everyone.


    Pros

      Easy to adjust the dosage. Good absroption Helps regulate BM

    Cons

      I dont like the fizz and the flavor Because it is powder and need to be mixed with fluid it is hard to take it with you when you go out.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Buffered C powder

    I like the fact that Buffered C Powder is powder goes directly into the system. As it is stated "no stomach" irritation this is true! I can not take effervescent form. The taste is not pleasant but the benefit of not having your gut irritated makes me not think too much about the taste.


    Pros

      powder form no fillers quick acting no stomach irritation

    Cons

      taste is not very pleasant

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
