- Gentle on the tummy, allows you to take more without upset
- Convenient to use powdered crystals
- Easy to mix into drinks or sprinkle on food
- Useful for anyone taking larger intakes
The soluble crystals can be easily added to drinks or sprinkled on to foods, and each gram provides almost 900mg of Vitamin C plus 100mg of calcium.
We also sell calcium ascorbate in tablet form (see Gentle Vitamin C), which may be a more convenient way to take it during the day.
Vitamin C is well known for its role in the healthy functioning of the immune system, and it also contributes to the normal function of joints and blood vessels.
I already took 3g of C a day, plus 300g magnesium citrate. Didn't fancy most of the calcium supps I'd come across so far but with this stuff, 3g a day gives me almost the same amount of C as before but also gives me an ideal ratio of 1:1 of calcium and magnesium. With all the calcium fortified food we eat I believe an equal intake of both as supplements to be ideal. Also this calcium is highly absorbable yet much cheaper than solo calcium supps.
I have learnt that calcium ascorbate is a better form of vitamin C to take, as it is well tolerated, better absorbed and non-acidic.
