When you hear the words ascorbic acid‚ you might think of a chemical or something that’s harmful to your health‚ but it’s far from that. In fact‚ it’s pure vitamin C! Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant‚ which means that it destroys free radicals that can harm your cells. Free radicals come from a number of things that we encounter in everyday life‚ including tobacco smoke and pollution.

Many people know that vitamin C‚ helps support your body’s immune system‚ but this vital nutrient also has a number of other responsibilities. Ascorbic acid can prevent or relieve joint problems by supporting the creation of collagen‚ an essential building block of the cartilage that cushions your joints.

While many people know of the health benefits of getting enough vitamin C in their diets‚ it seems that they often don’t know what level is required to avoid a deficiency. The recommended daily allowance of ascorbic acid is set at only 90 mg‚ but research has shown that this simply may not be enough‚ especially if you’re fending off a cold. The best sources of vitamin C include fruits and vegetables like oranges and broccoli. However‚ you may find that your schedule makes it inconvenient for you to consume a balanced diet. This is where a product like Pure Ascorbic Acid by Pure Encapsulations can help.

This supplement contains 1000 mg of ascorbic acid and 20 mg of ascorbyl palmitate—a fat-soluble derivative of vitamin C—in each dose. Pure Ascorbic Acid provides nearly 11 times more vitamin C than the recommended daily allowance‚ making it an excellent choice to boost your health.

One bottle of Pure Encapsulations’ Pure Ascorbic Acid contains 250 vegetable capsules‚ which can last you for up to eight months‚ depending on your dosage. Take between one and four capsules per day with meals. Consult with your doctor about the dosage that’s right for you.

      High potency pure vitamin C

      from Howell NJ on 11/21/2022
      Our holistic MD recommends ascorbic acid over C complex for efficacy. I can take bioflavanoids & quercetin separately as needed.


      Easy to swallow, high potency caps, ample 250 caps per jar. Good value for the price.

      Good value & Easy to Digest

      from Atlantic City NJ on 1/31/2021
      I used to buy loose Vitamin C for the price value but wanted something quicker & easier to take at 5000mg in one form vs. measuring out 5,000mg using measuring a measuring spoon. This is more efficient and easy on my stomach.

      Best value for best quality

      from Oakland, CA on 1/12/2021
      My naturopathic doctor recommended this supplement to me, and I have been taking it over a year. I found through research that Pure Encapsulations is a very highly regarded brand and, hence, has a hefty price tag. I found the 250 capsules of Ascorbic Acid to be the best value in the Vitamin C category of this brand. I order this product regularly. I have found that I get sick FAR LESS frequently since I started taking it. I take quite a lot (for adrenal issues), that is, 2,000 mg two times a day.


      high quality naturopath recommended large amount/value


      high cost
