Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good source of Vitamin C Not based on Calcium I wanted an ascorbic acid that was magnesium based since it usually is calcium based and I'm happy I found this. Keep in mind that you are also getting a dose of magnesium with this. With 1600 mg of ascorbic acid you get 240 mg of magnesium...relaxing so it could be taken in the evening. If you want to take more then you may not have to take much magnesium. Great way to get your vitamin C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I like NOW Foods products in general, but had never tried their Magnesium Ascorbate before. I'm very pleased with the results. I've always used another brand of this supplement, but that product is now disappearing from the market. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the NOW product is even better quality than what I had been using IMO. I would certainly recommend NOW Foods Magnesium Ascorbate to anyone who needs this particular form of vitamin C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from glad you finaly have it!!! Now I can order it from you in a combined order instead of resorting to supplier X. In my opinion magnesium ascorbate is one of the best ascorbates and a fine way to get magnesium and buffered Vitamin C at the same time. Buy some calcium ascorbate too if you want to shoot for a calcium magnesium ratio. Magnesium ascorbate tastes better than the calcium and sodium ascorbates. With this mag ascorbate powder I just dip a teaspoon into the bottle and get out 1/3 teaspoon which is about a gram (I think). Put it right in my mouth where it dissolves instantly
