NutriBiotic Ascorbic Acid/Sodium Ascorbate
100% Pure Buffered Vitamin C
Hypo-Allergenic pH 4.6
A Dietary Supplement
NutriBiotic Ascorbic Acid/Sodium Ascorbate is a 50/50 mix of Ascorbic Acid and Sodium Ascorbate.
The manufacturing procedure for ascorbic acid (natural source vitamin C) involves a 15 step process. Vegetable starch is reduced to a simple sugar (D-glucose) which is then converted to pure ascorbic acid. For more details on this process, see our ascorbic acid labels.
The manufacturing procedure for sodium ascorbate involves dissolving ascorbic acid in solution with sodium bicarbonate (prepared from sea water). This process removes the bicarbonate from the sodium replacing it with ascorbic acid forming sodium ascorbate. This process produces a truly buffered vitamin C.
The Ascorbic Acid/Sodium Ascorbate is another pure vitamin C that is readily disguised in prepared foods. It has also been a favorite among health professionals who prescribe mega doses of vitamin C to treat illness. It combines moderate acidity to enhance digestion with fully-reacted, tissue compatible sodium ascorbate to create a form of vitamin C. It can also be used in veterinary applications with animals accustomed to mildly tart flavors (herbivores and omnivores).
As a dietary supplement, mix 1/4 teaspoon or more in a glass of juice or water. Take with or without meals.
