Product Information

This is a gentle, non-acidic form of Vitamin C in powder form which is great for people who require large amounts of this vitamin or those who find tablets difficult to swallow. Calcium ascorbate is an excellent source of Vitamin C as the ascorbic acid (the official name for Vitamin C) is readily released from the ascorbate compound after it has been absorbed by the body.

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.
Daily Intake
Take 1 to 2 grams daily. Do not exceed recommended daily dose. 1/4 teaspoon = 1 gram.
These non-acidic calcium ascorbate crystals are most effectively absorbed when taken with food. It can easily be stirred into drinks, taken with water or sprinkled onto food.
Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

I use this product when I can get it as it is easier in the stomach than straight Ascorbic Acid.
Currently I am having to use Ascorbic Acid because the ordered Calcium Ascorbate has not arrived after 5 weeks from order.

I take vitamin C with every meal as it helps reduce the amount of nickel absorbed from food and I have SNAS, systemic nickel allergy syndrome.
Recommend to a friend: Yes
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

The evidence for this being of specific benefit for reducing nickel absorption is a little thin on the ground. However, I am pleased to hear that you have found this helpful. If you are not already doing so, we would suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.
