When choosing a vitamin C supplement, one must make sure that the chosen product is easily absorbed in the body and bio-available. All high quality supplements should be free of common allergens, free of gluten and casein, etc.
The primary form of Vitamin C is ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid can be buffered in different ways, making it gentle on the stomach and organs. The preferred method of buffering is done by means of sodium and is know as sodium ascorbate. This is also the form of Vitamin C reccommended by Dr Suzanne Humpries (See the link for more information). Ordinary forms of oral vitamin C – tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even the vitamin C from your diet – may not be processed and absorbed efficiently by your body. As a result, much of this vitamin C is never transferred into your bloodstream and even less of it makes it into your cells where it’s needed most. In fact, when you take 1,000 mg or more of regular oral vitamin C, more than half of it is passed as waste by your body.
