  • Calcium Ascorbate-C



  • Buffered, non-acidic



  • With bioflavonoids


Vitamin C is perhaps the most popular vitamin known to man. It is consumed in a supplemental form by millions of people across the world for its antioxidant properties, which are well-documented in medical research. Calcium ascorbate is an optimal nutritional supplement that combines ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with calcium carbonate. By combining these two dietary ingredients, we have created a buffered source of vitamin C that will not contribute to gastric irritation in sensitive persons.

finally a form of vitamin C that agrees with me! January 5, 2014
Good vitamin C This is a good product for vitamin C and Calcium. It does not cause stomach upset in my experience. August 29, 2013
Now Foods C 500 I chose this form of vitamin C as it is not an ascorbate acid, but a mineral (Calcium) ascorbate which is more gentle on my stomach. It also has bioflavonoids which I prefer. February 21, 2013
Good product This is a good product. High potency of vitamin C without all the other undesirable ingredients found in a lot of other vitamin C supplements. October 16, 2012
NOW Foods C-1000 I really appreciated that this product offered a really nice combination of ingredients including the calcium ascorbate form of vitamin C with bioflavonoids and rutin. However, after trying this product, I later switched to Now Foods' smaller 500mg size calcium ascorbate/bioflavonoid product in the CAPSULE form as I had much trouble swallowing these HUGE 1000mg tablets! As an aside, I will say that these tablets smelled GREAT! (Dr. Mercola says it is important to smell your vitamins. If they smell bad, you should not take them. It is your body's signal that they are not good for you.) December 30, 2010
