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.

"Great Source Of Calcium!"
By , 30 Jul 2017
Why do you use this product Calcium Ascorbate ?
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.

"Flexible C"
By , 23 Oct 2015
Why do you use this product Calcium Ascorbate ?
Recommended by a nutritionist for my wife as a means of taking vitamin C without the risk of upset stomach but to help the immune system.
Very easy to increase the dose in case of infection or take a lower 'maintenance' amount.
