If you need to give your immune system a boost‚ one of the best ways to do so to make sure that you get more vitamin C on a regular basis. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can protect you against common viral infections such as the common cold and the flu. Aside from enhancing your immune system‚ vitamin C is also known as an effective histamine inhibitor. It also helps promote faster wound healing‚ and can help your body cleanse itself from pollutants and toxins. This nutrient may work to prevent the build-up of carcinogenic nitrosamines found in tobacco‚ smoked meat‚ beer‚ cheese‚ and other processed food products inside your stomach. Furthermore‚ vitamin C helps improve your body’s ability to absorb iron‚ and can delay the effects of age-related health conditions such as poor vision and macular degeneration.

Vitamin C can naturally be found in strawberries‚ tangerines‚ guavas‚ bell peppers‚ broccoli‚ brussels sprouts‚ papayas‚ oranges‚ and green leafy vegetables. If you want to strengthen your immune system‚ it’s recommended that you include these food types in your diet. However‚ vitamin C is naturally acidic‚ making it less than ideal for those with sensitive stomachs. Fortunately‚ there are several pH balanced vitamin C supplements available; one of them is Pure Encapsulations’ Buffered Ascorbic Acid. In addition to vitamin C‚ this supplement also contains:


  • Calcium ascorbate‚ a calcium and ascorbic acid compound that has a neutral pH‚ allowing for increased vitamin C absorption while limiting side effects like stomachaches and loose stools.

  • Magnesium ascorbate‚ a mineral responsible for converting blood sugar into energy while also supporting nerve and muscle function and preventing excessive blood clotting.

  • Potassium ascorbate‚ another non-acidic mineral rich with vitamin C‚ which works to slow down the aging process.


One bottle of Buffered Ascorbic Acid provides 250 vegetable capsules‚ and should last for at least one month. Take two to eight capsules daily in between meals‚ unless otherwise prescribed by your physician.

Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypo-allergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

      Pros

      Different quantities offered.

      Cons

      Nothing
      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      The buffered formula is easy on the digestive tract. It is a daily part of my supplement routine as an important must-have for immune support as well as overall metabolic health.

      Pros

      Easy to swallow, efficacy and absorption. Quality always from Pure Encapsulations.

      Cons

      Nothing.

      I bought this instead of the Vitamin C powder that I usually buy I'm thinking it would be easier to use but then when I looked at the ingredients after I ordered it, I saw that it contains a corn-based ingredient. I am grain-free so this will not work for me

      Pros

      Capsules

      Cons

      Corn!

      This is a lifesaver if you have stomach/bowel issues taking regular ascorbic acid. Pure encapsulations is a great brand if you like pure supplements.

      I have been taking this Buffered Ascorbic Acid by Pure Encapsulations daily for over a year. My natural path recommended it as a supplementation to my overwhelming histamine levels and hives I was experiencing in addition to other supplements. I take 1 capsule 3x/day. I love this brand and find that it is gentle on my stomach. Would highly recommend it to others.

      Pros

      Gentle on my stomach

      Cons

      I have no dislikes
