Ultra C 1000 by Metagenics is a proprietary, patented vitamin C formula that features a unique blend of metabolites designed to enhance the utilization of the preparation. Its buffered delivery system is designed to help prevent the potential stomach upset that is sometimes associated with high vitamin C intake.

Preliminary scientific research suggests that vitamin C in the form of Ultra C® may result in improved uptake of the vitamin by white blood cells when compared to regular ascorbic acid.
