It's so rare to find a natural C vitamin, so I was really happy to find this one, as ascorbic acid is NOT vitamin C - it's just a synthetic part of the vitamin C complex, that can bring more harm than good, especially to people whose health is already fragile. It can even impact your blood vessels gravely making them more fragile as well as your adrenal glands, as it's mostly made of corn starch and sulphuric acid. Vitamin C in nature comes as a complex and in doses of 100 mg. The ascorbic acid is just the outer protective antioxidant layer of a broader complex of vitamins (J - the lung vitamin, K - the clotting factor , P-bioflavonoids & Copper in an enzymatic form, a precursor to building the adrenal hormones) that are the actual, natural form of the vitamin, and it's not the active ingredient of vitamin C at all. If you take too much of this synthetic vitamin C, you can create deficiencies in the other part of natures natural package. So, natural vitamins are always the best option.
You almost never can tell a difference when you take any product.
So why did I give this one a 5 star?
This, my friends, is one of the most respected brands on iherb!!! By me of course.
The reason for this is this. Look at the nutritional information. Not only it is all natural and organic but the most important thing of all for me personally is that there are no proprietary blends. They put weight next to every tiny ingredient/compound that’s in the blend!!! Even Dr.Berg doesn’t do it. When a company shows that many details it gains my respect.
This bottle is truly well formulated for natural source of vitamin C. I notice that it doesn’t irritate my stomach at all, thanks to the quality of materials. As I know Vitamin C is a kind of acid but when you get a good source, it will not harm your body.
Bought primarily for my growing cataract and I am so happy that it
started to melt it, together with Camu camu, Amla, DMSO, Cayenne, Eyebright
for eye wash solution + additional consumption of vitamin A and Rutin.
Before that (for the eye wash) I tried almost everything for my cataract removal-
beside cayenne & eyebright solution also all other non natural vit. C forms, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, curcumin, glutathione, lutein, bilberry, matcha tee, ginger, garlic, NAC,..) + castor oil with no success.
Additionally, my prostate - urination problems much improved.
Recommended! Thank you very much.
This is a quality natural vitamin c product but unfortunately this version contains piperine which my body cannot tolerate. This is why I only rate it 4 stars. For those who can handle piperine it is a good product, but be cautious if taking many supplements containing piperine.
It is unfortunate that so many supplements are being spiked with piperine now. For a natural vitamin C without piperine I use Pure Radiance C now.
I give this 3 stars because although the ingredients are top notch the dosage is extremely low and the price is expensive. If you're looking to get 1000 mg of vit c then you need 8 pills. When I'm sick i try to take a higher potency and this is simply too expensive of an antioxidant.
