Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a key antioxidant, protecting cells throughout the body from free radical damage. It also plays an integral role in the production of cellular energy, in addition to helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, preventing LDL oxidation, promoting wound healing, and maintaining healthy immune function. Taking a high amount of vitamin C – several grams daily – has been advocated for optimising both immune function and antioxidant support. Taking high amounts can be a challenge for individuals who have a sensitive or compromised digestive system. Thorne’s Buffered C Powder supplies not just vitamin C, but also calcium, magnesium, and potassium mineral-ascorbates that serve as a buffer, which allows sensitive individuals to take a larger amount of vitamin C with ease and comfort.
Directions: Mix 1 scoop with 200ml of water one to two times daily or as recommended by your health professional.
If pregnant, consult your health professional before using this product.
Warning: Vitamin C can cause diarrhea in some individuals in large doses.
