Source Naturals Ultimate Ascorbate C™ Powder -- 16 oz

Supports Immune System. Ultimate Ascorbate C™Powder contains vitamin C as a blend of five fully reacted mineral ascorbates. Ascorbate C is a natural and better form of vitamin C than ascorbic acid because it is pH neutral making it gentler on the digestive system. It is also more easily absorbed and utilized than ascorbic acid and provides key minerals which may aid vitamin C metabolism. Vitamin C plays a vital role in collagen formation amino acid metabolism hormone synthesis and the body's immune system.

Unbearable taste
 May 16, 2012
"I've had other vitamin C powders and have been able to tolerate them fairly well. This one though has an almost unbearable taste. I was literally having to choke it down. This was a waste of my money because the product tastes so salty to me (almost like sea water) that I cannot use it any longer. I will stick to regular Buffered C powder from here on out."

Flavor is Bitter
 June 12, 2011
"The flavor was bitter, I prefer the Vitamin C crystals, which dissolves faster than the powder version for my raw veggie/fruit smoothies."

Good mix, but a little oxidized
 March 31, 2011
"Mixed ascorbates are much better than ascorbic acid. My only gripe is that the stuff came a little bit oxidized. I've gotten mixed ascorbates from c-salts before (the only good thing that they carry, actually. They're made by an odd company) and those stayed white and unoxidized for much longer."
