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.

"Absolutely Brilliant!"
By Anonymous , 24 Mar 2021
We have used this product for years after being recommended by a friend. We find if you take at the first symptoms and keep taking regularly throughout the day, you can ward off most colds/ fluey type bugs and I also find it helps when I start getting water infections.
I would panic if this wasn't in my cupboard!!
I've had 3 children and they've had very few bad colds or throats since we used this.
Known as 'magic powder' in our house. Vitamin C actually needs to be taken in big quantities if you're fighting an infection - when your stomach starts to feel a bit funny, then you can reduce the amount. I've taken 16,000 mg in a day when I'm fighting a germ. Really really works.
Saying all that, you have to have common sense, and do what works for you.
Recommend to a friend: Yes
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

Please be aware that we cannot recommend taking more than 2g of this daily.

Purchased on your advisor recommendation as I find it hard to swallow in tablet form. Regrettably this is even harder to take as it feels as though my mouth is full of grit, even when mixed in with a drink. Total waste of money as completely indigestible.
