  • Gentle on the tummy, allows you to take more without upset
  • Convenient to use powdered crystals

  • Useful for anyone taking larger intakes

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.

"If you had to pick only ONE supplement to use....."
By , 10 Jan 2019
This would be it. I have been taking calcium ascorbate powder/crystals for years. Calcium ascorbate is easy on the digestive system, the powder is immediately soluble, and Vitamin C is something our bodies need but cannot make on its own. I am glad to find that Nature’s Best provides this great supplement.

"Vitamin c for mood"
By , 08 Apr 2018
I starting using this product after having a baby to improve mood and energy.
I take quite a high dose and seems to have made a difference to my mood and energy. I have taken this alongside quitting sugar and I am a noticeable different person. I would definitely recommend this product. Choose calcium ascorbate as it’s gentler on the stomach.
The service from nature’s best has been fantastic and arrived early then indicated on multiple occasions. Very impressed.
