InVite’s buffered Vitamin C Crystals are a highly absorbable, non-acidic form of Vitamin C. When Vitamin C is buffered, it is bound to Calcium to produce Calcium Ascorbate, making it gentle on the stomach. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in food sources including citrus fruits, berries, cruciferous vegetables, tomatoes, and cauliflower. It is a key antioxidant required for protecting against free-radical damage, the effects of aging by providing cell repair. It also helps support the longevity of Vitamin E, another key antioxidant. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for nearly all areas of health including immunity and healing, but it is not created naturally in our bodies. We must consume a sufficient amount through our diet or supplementation.
You have many forms of Vitamin C to choose from, including tablets, powders and capsules. So, why choose InVite’s Non-Acidic Buffered Vitamin C Crystals? Several studies strongly support the fact that Vitamin C Crystals are superior in absorbability to tablets and even powder forms of this essential vitamin. Crystals release their nutrient power directly through the digestive system very rapidly, without having to be broken down. Vitamin C crystals are non-acidic and buffered with Calcium. Magnesium and Potassium are added as well, making them very gentle on your stomach and digestive tract. In addition, Vitamin C crystals are a convenient form of Vitamin C because they can be taken either mixed with a liquid beverage or even sprinkled onto foods. Vitamin C crystals are alkalinizing as well. InVite’s Buffered Vitamin C Crystals are an excellent source of:
- Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid): 2250mg (3750% DV)
- Calcium Ascorbate (supplying 3500mg Vitamin C and 875mg Calcium): 405mg, (40.5% DV)
- Magnesium Carbonate (supplying 94mg Magnesium): 215mg (53.75% DV)
- Potassium Bicarbonate (supplying 94mg Potassium): 90mg (2.6% DV)
Vitamin C is one of the most exhaustively studied of all vitamins, and there is a promising amount of clinical research to support the fact that Vitamin C is highly beneficial for a variety of body functions. These include its powerful antioxidant protection, its role in the formation of collagen and wound healing, and its ability to protect the body from damaging free radicals. It is also a very effective nutrient for maintaining a healthy immune system. Vitamin C mediates the inflammatory pathways throughout your body, fighting various sources of inflammation and increasing overall immunity. It boosts your energy levels and increases stamina, and it also helps other important nutrients become quickly and effectively absorbed into your body. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins such as Vitamin C, may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer.
Normally, scurvy is associated with a historical condition relating to those lost at sea. However, the National Nutrition Examination Survey found the prevalence of vitamin C deficiency and depletion to be up 23% of the American population, and less than 18% of adults consume greater than 30mg of vitamin C per day (half of the RDA). Symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include low-grade inflammation, fatigue, limping, gum bleeding, or swollen extremities, and often mimic other conditions such as vasculitis, rheumatic disorders, and poor lung function. The study showed that smokers, those who did not use supplements, and non-Hispanic Black males had elevated risks of vitamin C deficiency, while Mexican Americans had lower risks. The study concluded that health professionals should recommend consumption of vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C, and should recommend supplementation for individuals at risk of vitamin C deficiency.
As a dietary supplement for adults, mix approximately one-half to one scoop per day in an 8-12 ounce glass of water preferably in between meals, or use as directed by a healthcare professional.
