Buffered Vitamin C Powder
454 grams (16 oz)
Item Catalog Number:
00084

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress.1-8 Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation.9,10 Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.4-6 A major immune-supporting activity of vitamin C is boosting glutathione levels in human lymphocytes,38 cells that make up about 25% of all white cells in the blood.

More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress.11-14 Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals,15-20 cigarette smoking,21-24 immune impairment,25-31 extreme temperatures,31-36 and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also signal the need for increased intake of vitamin C.37

Vitamin C Powder contains four buffering minerals, in addition to ascorbic acid. When mixed with water, this product produces a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach and intestinal lining. The minerals also make it a more pleasant-tasting and healthful drink. The substances used in this product make it effervesce for a short while when it is mixed with water.

        Comments about Life Extension Buffered Vitamin C Powder, 454 grams (16 oz):

        I am convinced an extra boost of Vitamin C is just that, an extra boost to my health and well-being. What's really nice is that if I am feeling my bowels are being sluggish, doubling or tripling the usual amount produces an immediate laxative effect for immediate relief and it is easy to resume normal functioning. All this and getting your C too. What's not to like?
        My only question about it is using it as a first aid for burns. I haven't tried using the buffered form on a burn. I know it really works to use the regular powdered C on a burn. Just mix up a solution of water and enough C to produce a saturated solution, soak a tissue with it, and place it on the burn. It is miraculous! When a large blob of hot grease fell on my wrist, I applied a solution and after a brief sizzle, the wincing discomfort vanished completely. I was able to apply the solution quickly enough, and there was no blistering! Just a slightly reddened and rough surface that healed quickly. Not sure if the buffered form does this?

            After reading Dr. Andrew Saul, I decided on the addition of buffered C to my morning routine. This is easy to take - I stir into organic tomato juice. In addition to providing my body with an immediately available antioxidant, it is also helpful with regularity.

                  First started taking Vitamin C in mid 80s after reading Linus Pauling's book recommending it. Now 80
                  I have never had any health issues to this date which is all the proof I can offer. The magnesium in this product may be as useful as the ascorbic acid
                  according to some researchers. Excellent as a occasional laxative when the dosage is increased.

                      Why anyone would take a regular acidic Vitamin C product, that can cause stomach and intestinal distress is dificult to understand.
                      This product is the absolute best I have ever seen or used. I take 1/2 the recommended dose, but I take it 3x per day, immediately after each meal. Done this way, you should experience no side effects, and all the benefits of this essential nutrient. It should be taken with other anti-oxidents included in your daily regimine. Over time, your collagen and arteries will benefit if used properly.
