Buffered Vitamin C combines a highly absorbable form of vitamin C together with the buffering minerals magnesium, potassium and calcium to allow higher doses without stomach upset, and for supporting proper muscle relaxation and contraction. Great for “Flu Season” and great for avoiding sickness altogether. Powerful antioxidant. I like it is pure powder without fillers, it is easy to regulate the dose. It dissolves in water well. The taste is not so sour but still artificial. Stay healthy!

Ascorbic acid, while a great antioxidant and immune booster, can have the effect of being harsh on the stomach. A buffered form like this retains the same potency, without the aforementioned drawback and strong taste. An added bonus is a few extra mg's of calcium to boot! I've always liked the quality of NOW products, and this one doesn't disappoint either. Packaged as a powder, you can vary the dosage instead of being stuck with a set sized capsule. Very few filler ingredients means you're only getting what you need and nothing else.

Wonderful quality as always from NOW, huge size, perfect for immunity and has a wonderful effect on all areas of health! Most people do not consume enough vitamin C daily and a small boost would greatly help their health. Make sure to increase dosage by two or three if sick, search up bowel titration with vitamin c!

I love this product as it's not acidic to the stomach. The vitamin C is buffered with calcium. I use it regularly to help any healing going on. I use a heaped 1/2 teaspoon as it's roughly 2000mg of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. And this is the best price I can find for vitamin C.

I was taking larger doses of the regular Now Vitamin C, but it was too acidic for my system, and I was struggling to drink the water I'd dissolved it in. Buffered Vitamin Cakes is alkaline, and it has a smoother mouth feel when you drink it. I highly recommend this product.

We use a lot of Vitamin C to help the family through the winter cold & flu season. I purchase a big bottle (2-3lb - 1-1.5kg) of sodium Ascorbate, and then add one of these in to lower the sodium content, and increase calcium intake. Kids need the calcium, so adding it via Vitamin C seems like a great option. The calcium by itself doesn't have the taste you would expect, so if you are looking for a Vitamin C that doesn't drive your taste buds mad, then this is also a good option. This is a cost effective form of Calcium Ascorbate - you may be able to find slightly better on iherb, but with Now products you know the quality is also good. So this is my "go to" to balance the large 3lb Now "Vitamin C crystals" that contains only sodium Ascorbate. I can mix this container into the large one, roll it around to mix, and have a better tasting product.

I’m very happy with this efficient c vitamin supplement. The calcium ascorbate is much better for the stomach than the c vitamin supplements I used before. The absorption also seems better. I use high dosage with it whenever I feel itchy in my throat or if I suspect a cold or a flu is brewing. So far it has worked.

We’ve been using this for years. Great source of vitamin C and easy to take mixed with a little juice, you don’t taste it. Doesn’t bother my stomach at all.
