Vitamin C

Vitamin CSodium Ascorbate is a natural, non-acidic (pH-neutral) form of Vitamin C, which is gentler on the digestive system than the commonly used ascorbic acid.

Sodium Ascorbate can be added to many foods such as milk and soup without affecting taste. Many like the slightly salty taste as a substitute for table salt. It can also be used as a sugar-free, additive-free, substitute for toothpaste (brush and swallow). Never use ascorbic acid on teeth. Sodium Ascorbate is a much milder form of Vitamin C and ascorbic acid is highly acidic.

Sodium Ascorbate is more commonly used for therapeutic dosages. We do not offer a tablet form of Sodium Ascorbate. This significantly reduces the excessive intake of capsules and fillers.

The sodium content may be objectionable to those with hypertension or water retention problems; however, this particular formula is used in intravenous drips where 50-150 grams per day are given safely. Sodium is a required part of a healthy diet. Recent research has portrayed sodium chloride (table salt) as a possible undesirable of sodium.
