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.

This gives me funny effects in my tummy. Does anyone have the same experience? I know some vitamins contradict with each other..
28/06/2021, By Fay
I was taking this to help my teeth, as I was experiencing some occasional pain. It really helped but was causing some unnecessary acid reflux so decided to discontinue it.

Seems to work, always hard to tell with vitamins really. But we haven’t been horribly sick and it’s easy to put in kids’ water/milk etc as it’s tasteless and it doesn’t upset the stomach.

My family loves this vitamin C. We take it daily for prevention and if we feel we're coming down with something then we take every hour until bowel tolerance is reached. Mixed with water it doesn't have much taste, so my kids drink it with no problems.

This is a great product. My fiancé moans about the taste, he wants to know why it doesn't taste like oranges. LOL

When I had a cold coming on I took 1mg/per hour for about 5 hours until bowel tolerance was reached and thereafter I felt so much better!
31/12/2019, By Tracy
Great for when you want to take large doses, better than trying to swallow lots of pills. Dissolves easily.
04/11/2019, By Heidi
A superb immune booster
21/10/2019, By s.j
Tasteless and buffered, so it's perfect for fussy kids
10/10/2019, By s.j
My picky eater kids drank this in plain cold water without a fuss, almost zero taste
26/09/2019, By Portiah
Great stuff, like that I can mix it in my son's juice to mask the taste.
26/09/2019, By Portiah
Great product to add a vit C boost. My 4 year old likes it, and I like that I can mix it with his juice to mask the salty-ish taste. Glad I tried it.
10/09/2019, By Wendy
Will need to use this longer to know how effective it is but what I can say now is that it has quite a salty taste. Glad that it is pure but it is quite expensive for only 100g.
10/09/2019, By Claudette
I am taking it every morning to boost my immune system after a bad bout of flu and sinus infection and gets me to drink water. No bad taste and I have found after 2 weeks now my body is functioning better.
28/08/2019, By Lauren
Live how clean this product is. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to supplement vit c
18/07/2019, By Inebelle
Good value for money. 1/4 teaspoon = 500 mg vit c. I am giving it to my son and it is working well thus far.

19/06/2019, By Heidi
A great Vitamin C
10/06/2019, By Vanessa
Second time buying this. I find it easy to use and not unpleasant tasting. Love that it has no sugar or other nasties in. But I struggle somewhat to get it into my kids - definitely easier if I mix it with honey instead of with juice though. Will definitely keep this in stock at home!
08/06/2019, By megan
Really wonderful vitamin C
07/05/2019, By Gill
Good value, easily absorbed Vitamin C. Pleasant taste. Helps with absorption of iron and other vitamins and minerals.
18/03/2019, By Hellizma
Take this with msm and it absorbs much better
12/03/2019, By Sadiya
Used it to treat my toddler's whooping cough.
Using it in pregnancy as well.

Reordered as it's brilliant!
04/02/2019, By Melanie
This is a great product and I like to use to help with the absorption of Collagen that you can mix in smoothies, since the collagen molecule is large and hard to absorb, Vit C is required to help with the absorption.
30/12/2018, By Caddie
Glad it’s ok sugar and healthy!
08/10/2018, By Heidi
A great vitamin C and it lasts ages.
06/10/2018, By Eliziah
Great that this is available in SA. If mixed with enough water it is drinkable.
27/08/2018, By Nicolette
So my sister told me to start using this - and I was amazed at how a little goes a long way - that maintenance dose that keeps you from catching the office sniffles or feeling poorly. And the added benefits - Vit C actually helps you retain the youthful look. All round a great product and a must-have in every household!
20/08/2018, By Suzanne
Very happy to find this in SA. This was the only thing that cleared my whooping cough. I will never go without it again.
08/07/2018, By Jonah
It works.
04/07/2018, By Heidi
When I feel a cold coming on, I take a quarter tsp of this every hour and soon I am right as rain. It lasts long and doesn't have much of a taste.
14/06/2018, By Sam
Great vitamin supplement
31/05/2018, By Angela
Tastes a bit odd but that's because its not artificially sweetened like most Vic powders. Fine taken in orange juice.
11/05/2018, By Robyn
Great to finally find a good quality, unsweetened sodium ascorbate powder. And it's affordable. Have recommended it to many people already
08/05/2018, By Tandy
Really good price and for the first time I have found a vitamin C powered product that is not sweetened
26/04/2018, By lee
i always used to get the flu and with this product i am as healthy as ever. It has boosted my immune system.
30/03/2018, By Ria
A great essential mineral to add to your diet
13/03/2018, By Tracy-leigh
Effective immune booster. Great for getting you through illness very quickly and for maintenance as an anti-histamine compliment.
03/03/2018, By Heidi
An effective vitamin C without any nasties.

11/01/2018, By Monique
Nice for my kiddies, it's tasteless when mixed into some fruit juice.
02/01/2018, By Heidi
My first time trying this and so far so good. I'm used to a sweet tasting vitamin C, but this one doesn't have much of a taste.
07/12/2017, By Beth
Not a strong taste and the first vit c to not affect my husband's ulcers
13/11/2017, By Tracey
Great product with no unnecessary additives
24/08/2017, By Allison
Have been giving it to my Dad who has dementia and will no longer drink anything that does not taste good. 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 Lara
Perfectly palatable
12/06/2017, By Elijah
Not 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.
