Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Oxidate batch The most batch I got of 3 bottles had the powder yellowish to dirty orange color. After noticing lack of effectiveness in Liposomal C form, I researched the color issue and this color of Sodium Ascorbate indicates oxidation & breakdown (even though the expiration date is August 2016). For comparisons, the Swanson's powder is off-white, which is the right color for non-oxidated product. While NOW has a good price, their uneven quality is a big problem. I had to dump 3 bottles into trash. Hence, the only pure Sodium Ascorbate powder on Swanson's is their own brand. May 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well Has a mineral taste, but more effective than other Vit C & great price! December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I really like this product. I use it daily. November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swansons normal Greatness Great product, I would recommend it to anyone. October 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Alkaline Vitamin C There are many Vitamin C in the market but mostly acidic because they're made with ascorbic acid. This one is different, it's alkaline, a very beneficial thing to your immune system. My family had been talking this for many years and are happy for its valuable benefits and good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Is what it is Sodium ascorbate is the kind used for ultra hi doses of IV vit C. It tastes not bad, is cheep, can be added to any liquid with easy dissolving, and the pharma-grade from Now is what you want. April 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for esterified Vitamin C Sodium ascorbate powder can be hard to find. I'm glad Swanson carries this product. It is very convient. When I add it to water it tastes like I'm drinking softened water. The kids like it in water also. However, I can't get my husband to drink it. His taste buds are much more sensitive than mine and he thinks it tastes and smells like fish. But we'll continue to use it because its a great value if you are looking for an esterified form of vitamin C. March 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sodium Ascorbate This is a convenient, economical way to get vit. c February 22, 2013
