Sodium Ascorbate Powder Vegetarian - 8 oz.


Sodium Ascorbate is buffered (non-acidic) and will not contribute to gastric irritation in acid-sensitive persons.  Sodium Ascorbate is synthesized from a combination of Sodium Bicarbonate and Ascorbic Acid to form Sodium Ascorbate. NOW Sodium Ascorbate Powder is an inexpensive buffered form of Vitamin C and is Pharmaceutical Grade.

Buffered vitamin C offers the same benefits of regular Vitamin C, but is ideal for those with sensitive stomachs. Vitamin C is a well known antioxidant and is very popular for its ability to neutralize free radicals and support the immune system.

Vitamin C can help boost your immune system, and in addition to fighting off the common cold can help treat gum disease, acne, bronchitis, stomach ulcers and even bladder and prostate infections.

It is one of the most effective and safest nutrients, and is a water soluble vitamin. It is a powerful antioxidant for the synthesis of collagen, which helps to make blood vessels and body muscles strong. The human body doesn’t have the capacity to generate Vitamin C, so it needs to be received through food and supplements.

Scurvy is prevented by an insufficient intake of vitamin C. The symptoms of scurvy appear due to the weakening of connective tissues, bones, and blood vessels that include collagen. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, is required for the production of collagen.
