Buffered C w/ Bioflavonoids
A Must Have
My husband and I both take this Vitamin C and have great results from it. Years ago there was a more expensive, name-brand we would buy from Swanson. But it became unavailable so we switched to this and have been extremely satisfied. It is a "staple" in our home. Thank you Swanson for the affordable price.

As good as Ester C
As an older adult, some vitamins cause digestive upset. I like this product.

Vitamin C buffered
This is a staple in my daily vitamin's and as it
is buffered which I need it is a huge plus.

Excellent product. Will purchase again. Would like to see this product in a 1,000 mg. capsule. It currently is sold only in tablet form for the 1,000 mg. strength.

Love this product
I love this buffered C. It never causes stomach upset, like other brands that are not buffered. The capsule is a little too big for me, so I just open up 2 capsules, add to some applesauce. I won't take any other vit C. The price is great too. Thanks Swanson!

a great vitamin C
My Husband and I have been taking this buffered C with bioflavonoids for quite a few years and really like it - get your vitamin C and flavonoids together!
Since we each take them twice daily, this bottle of 100 caps only lasts 25 days. I wish that Swanson would offer it in a larger size = perhaps 250 in a bottle.

The first vitamin C supplement I've been able to take without suffering from severe acid reflux, heartburn and indigestion. Good stuff!

I used this regularly in part because it had no magnesium stearate. But recently they put magnesium stearate in it, which causes me leg cramps at night. I did not know they had put magnesium stearate in it but I started having cramps and checked al my supplements and there it was. Quit this and my leg cramps quit. Found other sources of C with no stearates.
Swanson had a study done that showed Magnesium sterates causes no harm. I see lots of such studies that later are not correct.
I love Swanson except for the fact that they are putting stearates into many supplements that previously had none

I love the price of this great quality product. I've purchased this many times and am pleased to buy again and again. Does not upset my stomach.

Swanson Premium Buffered C w/ Bioflavonoids
Qualified product at competitive price. My biochemical metabolism tells me that this is qualified one.

A better C
This vitamin C does not hurt my stomach because it's buffered. I take 2,000 mg. per day. I like the fact it comes in capsules as opposed to tabs. Great product at a great price.

Buffered C w/Bioflavonoids
Great product for the price. Great for digestability and not hard to swallow for its large size. I have been using this for years and recommend it.

This product is a very good value. It does not leave you with the vitamin burps and can be taken without food but I always take with a full glass of water. It is part of the daily routine in our family and we are all very healthy. Would highly recommend it.

Easy on the tummy!
I love this product because I get my vitamin C without the acidic stomach!

This is a very nice combo of vitamin C and bioflavonoids at a price you can't beat.

great buffered product
I can't take regular Vit. C so this is a good alternative. It doesn't bother my stomach or give my cankers like regular vitamin C-not even after my gastric bypass 3 months ago!

This is a great Vitamin C for persons with high acidity. It's also gentle on the body. Love it, and take it several times daily. Great for the immunity system, too!

Hurt my stomach
I purchased "buffered" C thinking it wouldn't bother my sensitive stomach, but it did. The Emer'gency-C and Ester C are the only vitamin C I have found that is easy on my stomach.

Best Buffered Vitamin C
My Naturopath recommended I take a buffered or ester-C because I was having stomach discomfort. Have been taking this product for a long time; recently decided to start with 1,000 but most are in tab form and/or are not buffered. Whoops, I'm back to this form.

Find it to be efficacious, as well as more reasonably priced than anything I have ever found. Easy on the stomach as well! Love it! Can't do without it!

Easy to Take, Digest
I take at least 4mg per day first thing in the morning before breakfast. Capsules are easy to swallow. Works for me!

I have to open them
The content in the capsule is very good, I am sure it absorbs better than the usual acid. However, the capsule wrapping is very hard, so in order to assure that my body will make use of it, I must open the capsule and swallow it opened.

Not a good value
This product does not desolve...we find whole pills in our stool. Never had this problem before. If it doesn't desolve it can't be used by the body.

Buffered C is very good to take because it has calcium ascorbate which is good for the bones and the vitamin C is good for everything else. It is the base the body needs to absorb all nutrients; so, it is important to get enough vitamin C.
