Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential vitamin that plays a crucial role in overall health.** It was first understood to be an important nutrient centuries ago during long sea voyages, when sailors who ate vitamin C-rich citrus fruits would generally be in better health than those who did not—though of course at the time they did not know about vitamin C.** It was first isolated in 1928 and has become an increasingly popular supplement ever since.
Vitamin C in its “buffered” form means it has been synthesized by combining ascorbic acid with sodium bicarbonate or calcium to create a form that is less or non-acidic and therefore gentler on the stomach.** Buffered C in the form of calcium ascorbate is a better choice for those who are sensitive to sodium.
Buffered C Supplements
Buffered C supplements deliver vitamin C’s legendary antioxidant activity, helping to support immune system wellness while also promoting the production of collagen.** These supplements are especially popular during times of seasonal changes, and can be paired with citrus bioflavonoids and rosehips for enhanced nutritional support.**
