Buffered Vitamin C Powder is ideal for individuals sensitive to the acidity of pure ascorbic acid.  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 Thorne Research's 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 2,350 mg of vitamin C in each scoop, Buffered C Powder provides 350 mg each of calcium and magnesium and 99 mg of potassium.

The use of potassium supplements with potassium-sparing diuretics (spironolactone, triamterene, amiloride) may lead to hyperkalemia.  This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.  If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product.  Vitamin C can cause diarrhea in some individuals in large doses, which can vary from person to person. This resolves when the dosage is reduced. Do not use if security seal inside the cap is broken. Store tightly sealed in a cool, dry place.
