  • Threonic Acid & Alpha Lipoic Acid Enhanced

  • Buffered, bioavailable vitamin C

  • Vegetarian/vegan

Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals. NOW AlphaSorb-C 1000 includes Transport C-PLUS, the trademarked blend of threonic acid enhanced buffered (non-acidic) calcium ascorbate and alpha lipoic acid. Threonic acid (a vitamin C metabolite) has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of vitamin C. Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant known to help regenerate vitamin C in the body. Furthermore, studies suggest that alpha lipoic acid may enhance the body's utilization of vitamin C. The addition of bioflavonoids as synergists helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective vitamin C supplement.
