Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that is involved in quite a few bodily processes. Due to the fact that it is water-soluble‚ you need to consume it daily in order to fully benefit. While citrus fruits like oranges are great dietary sources‚ supplementation can provide additional insurance.
One of the most important functions of vitamin C (which is also known as ascorbic acid) is to serve as an antioxidant. This means that the vitamin works to fight off free radicals that can enter the body and damage cells. Free radicals may also contribute to an older-looking appearance.
Furthermore‚ vitamin C may strengthen your immune system. Contrary to popular belief‚ it can't prevent or cure the common cold. However‚ it may lessen the severity or duration of its symptoms.
In addition‚ ascorbic acid is needed to support the repair and growth of tissues throughout the body. It can help you heal from wounds and form protective scar tissue while also working to maintain strong bones‚ teeth‚ and cartilage. The tendons‚ blood vessels‚ skin‚ and ligaments are all created with a protein that requires vitamin C in order to be made.
Unlike other vitamin C supplements‚ Pure Encapsulations' Buffered Ascorbic Acid Capsules are less likely to irritate the stomach. If you have a sensitive gastric system‚ this formulation may be for you; it creates a neutral pH form of vitamin C by combining magnesium‚ potassium‚ and calcium ascorbate.
Take two to six vegetarian capsules daily‚ in divided doses. You can use this supplement either with or between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 90-capsule bottle should last from 15 to 90 days.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions? If pregnant or lactating‚ consult your physician before taking this product. People with the following conditions should consult their doctor before supplementing with vitamin C: glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency‚ iron overload (hemosiderosis or hemochromatosis)‚ history of kidney stones‚ or kidney failure. It has been suggested that people who form calcium oxalate kidney stones should avoid vitamin C supplements because vitamin C can convert into oxalate and increase urinary oxalate. Consult your physician for more information.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions? Buffered ascorbic acid may react with mixed amphetamines (a specific amphetamine combination used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit disorder) and blood thinning medications. Consult your physician for more information.

Buffered Ascorbic Acid is the best. Most C upsets my stomach but because these are buffered they don't. Recommended by my holistic doc. Have ordered them several times now.
