Buffered C Powder by Thorne Research is a natural vitamin C supplement for individuals sensitive to the acidity of pure ascorbic acid.
- Buffered vitamin C supplement for individuals with a sensitive or compromised digestive system*
- Made with pure, crystalline vitamin C
- An inexpensive source of vitamin C and the major minerals
- The easiest way to take a higher amount of vitamin C
High amounts of vitamin C - several grams daily - have been advocated for optimizing both immune function and antioxidant support.* Evidence for the efficacy of consuming high amounts of ascorbic acid is due in large part to the groundbreaking research conducted in the 1970s and 1980s by two-time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, PhD.
Taking high amounts of vitamin C can be a challenge for individuals who have sensitive or compromised digestive systems. For these individuals, Thorne Research has developed Buffered C Powder. Each scoop supplies the same pure, crystalline vitamin C found in Thornes Pure Ascorbic Acid, along with a blend of calcium, magnesium, and potassium mineral ascorbates that serve as a buffer, allowing sensitive individuals to take large amounts of vitamin C with ease and comfort.
In addition to 2,350mg of vitamin C in each scoop, Buffered C Powder provides 350mg each of calcium and magnesium and 99mg of potassium.
