Vitamin C (or as it is known by its more technical term, ascorbic acid) that is essential to all of life. Vitamin C is an important factor in many of the body’s various life-giving and life-maintaining functions including the successful operation of the immune system. Unfortunately, Vitamin C is not water soluble (meaning it cannot be saved in the body’s fat content for later) and it is not something that the body naturally produces. This means that although it is an essential vitamin, it must be replenished every day in order for good health to be maintained. There is at least some vitamin C content in all fruits and vegetables though one particular type of fruit that seems to have a higher concentration is fruit in the citrus family. The orange is most closely associated with Vitamin C for this reason.

Directions

Serving Size & Timing

It is generally suggested that a person take about 1000mg, (or one quarter of a teaspoon) daily, however personal preference in this regard seems to be erratic. The generally guideline provided by the FDA cautions against taking more than 60mg per day, but this in itself seems to be an exaggerated low. It is known that 60mg is a sufficient amount to take so that the person does not begin to suffer from deficiency; however it is possible that this may not be enough to see the true healing powers of Vitamin C. According to one survey, in between 5 and 17 percent of adults have some kind of Vitamin C deficiency.

Taking the recommended dosage of Vitamin C daily is also necessary so that when tragedy occurs and mental or physical trauma of some kind is suffered, plasma levels in the body do not become too erratic.

INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION

CONCENTRATION OF ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C)

This particular type of Vitamin C contains no fillers and is completely pure.

ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C) SIDE EFFECTS

Vitamin C is non-toxic and even in cases of extreme overdose well beyond the recommended daily dosage, negative side effects will rarely if ever be experienced. When these side effects do occur they are usually mild symptoms such as upset stomach or diarrhea. If you do experience these symptoms you merely need to lower your intake to less than 2,000mg daily and things will begin to level out.

If Vitamin C is taken at too high of a level, it could cause a reduction in copper levels in the body while stimulating the absorption of iron. Therefore anyone who has some kind of copper deficiency or any condition that causes iron deposits to form in their body should consult a doctor before Vitamin C is taken. In addition pregnant women should not take more than 6,000mg Vitamin C daily or there is a chance that the child may develop scurvy in the womb. Of course no more than 2,000mg Vitamin C should be consumed daily but if this cannot be adhered to it is especially important not to take more than 6,000mg.

BIOAVAILABILITY OF VITAMIN C

The reason that Vitamin C is routinely used as an additive in so many different foods is because of its remarkably high levels of bioavailability. Because Vitamin C is derived from citrus fruits, it maintains quite a sour taste even when in powder form so it is best to mix it with a fruit juice of some sort before consumption. Another alternative are the readily available ascorbic acid capsules. Of course, food cannot always be trusted alone as a reliable source of Vitamin C since it can be so easily lost while cooking or other types of food preparatory techniques. This is why the supplement is a much more practical source.

First, I greatly appreciate the amazingly quick shipping from this site. It was definitely a large plus! Second, my boyfriend was starting to have an itchy throat and he is quick to take store bought powders to for colds. Fortunately I received the Vitamin C quickly and he took it in some water. Within 24 hrs, his issue was gone. This Vitamin C is a genuinely wonderful product to have. Thank you so much!

A good Vitamin C source without fillers, you can instantly mix with anything, as a preservative, drinks, etc. I 'm funny with citrus fruit so this is not new to me, it taste just like that without the sweetness.

So far, I'd have to rate the product at 5 stars. Price and product are excellent.

I have been taking this supplement for the last two weeks and it has been great!! I take 1 teaspoon twice a day and have not experienced any negative affects that I may have with regular Vitamin C. My mother was visiting and was complaining about a sore throat. Gave her a teaspoon in a glass of water and the soreness was gone the next day. Highly recommend this product

This is my first order with "Bulk Supplements", and I'm very impressed with the packaging and quality of this product.

Thank you very much!

This is the first time I've used pure ascorbic acid powder, and I'll never go back to pills. I really like that I can control how much Vitamin C I take without having to consume any filler.

This Vit C is great. Pure and grainy like sugar. I tasted a bit of the powder without adding to my shake and it had a citrus taste.
