100g of Gaia Organics Buffered Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C powder
Buffered vitamin C, which is vitamin C buffered with sodium ascorbate, is often gentler on the body than other highly acidic supplements, and can be taken without stomach upset and provides a longer-lasting effect.
A few reasons to take Buffered Vitamin C
Immune Booster Large doses of vitamin C can help in fighting cancer, colds, and cholesterol. Some scientists believe free radicals overwhelm the system and use up vitamin C stores quickly, impairing the immune system. Ingesting large amounts of the vitamin allows the immune system to destroy these free radicals, and restore patients to health. Buffered vitamin C may also be better suited for the body when taking high doses of the supplement.
Slow Release Due to its calcium and magnesium addition, buffered vitamin C is more slowly absorbed into the system. This slower absorption leads to both better "quality control" and gives "longer-lasting benefits." Buffered vitamin C allows the body to benefit from one dose for up to sixteen hours, and is therefore often used in time-released variants.
Cancer Prevention Taking ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate can help with cancer prevention and treatment. Patients who take sufficient amounts of vitamin C have a lower chance of developing various forms of cancer like breast, lung and colon cancer. High vitamin C blood levels can shrink tumours and abnormal growths.
Cardiovascular Health The antioxidant effects of this supplement contribute to cardiovascular health. Oxidative damage due to free radicals is one of the major causes of cardiovascular disease; this type of damage takes place in the body’s cells. Too many chemical changes in these cells increase the risk for chronic cardiovascular conditions.
As a dietary supplement, mix 1/4 teaspoon in a glass of water, apple or vegetable juice. Take with or without meals.

I mixed it in Apple juice and water and had no problems with him drinking it. I also found it very palatable.24/07/2017, By LaraPerfectly palatable12/06/2017, By ElijahNot bad. Slightly "bicarb-like" taste, as its buffered, but not too unpleasant and perfectly palatable just mixed in water. Great mixed in juice for little ones. Reasonably priced.
