Buffered Vitamin C Powder

Buffered Vitamin C Powder

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits and green vegetables. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress.21-28 Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation.29,30 Vitamin C is a vital co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.25-27

More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress.31-34 Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals,35-40 cigarette smoking,41-44 immune impairment,45-51 extreme temperatures,52-56 and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also signal the need for increased intake of vitamin C.57

Vitamin C Powder contains four buffering minerals, in addition to ascorbic acid. When mixed with water, this product produces a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach or intestinal lining. The minerals also make it a more pleasant-tasting and healthful drink. The substances used in this product make it effervesce for a short while when first mixed with water.
