  • Antioxidant Protection
  • Threonic Acid & Alpha Lipoic Acid Enhanced
  • Buffered, Bioavailable Vitamin C
  • Superior to Ester-C
  • Patent Pending
  • Vegetarian Formula

 

NOW AlphaSorb-C contains the Vitamin C metabolite, Threonic Acid, which has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C.  This buffered, non-acidic Vitamin C supplement is superior as it also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, an antioxidant known to help regenerate Vitamin C in the body.  Furthermore, studies suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may enhance the body's utilization of Vitamin C.  The addition of Bioflavonoids as synergists helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective Vitamin C supplement.

Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals. Calcium ascorbate has the benefit of calcium helping the body absorb ascorbate—the productive part of vitamin C—by temporarily protecting it from oxidation. Calcium Ascorbate is a neutral salt and not an acid, so more people can take larger amounts without acid upset or diarrhea. Equally important is that Calcium Ascorbate replenishes the calcium that is excreted in the urine due to the chelating properties of Vitamin C.

Bioflavonoids strengthen the blood vessels & improve circulation. They have the ability to neutralize reactive oxygen species by donating one of their electrons, thus stabilizing the molecule and breaking the oxidative chain.
