I have been taking this magnesium ascorbate vitamin C powder supplement for the pastyear and have already noticed significant improvements in my energy levels and immune system. The powder dissolves easily in water and has a neutral taste. I love that it's non-acidic and gentle on my stomach. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a high-quality and effective vitamin C supplement.
Now Foods Magnesium Ascorbate is a good alternative to ascorbic acid for those who are sensitive to the weakly acidic Ascorbic Acid, the more common form of vitamin C. Mineral ascorbates such as Magnesium Ascorbate are essentially buffered forms of vitamin C, and although there's not a lot of information about the advantage of these supplements in terms of vitamin C bioavailability, from personal experience they are definitely gentler on the stomach. It also adds a modest amount of magnesium to the diet. Now Foods has very high standards for their products, and usually are priced better than many other brands when it comes to things like Magnesium Ascorbate.
s with all the products from the Now brand - this is a complete winner! Easily dissolves into water or juice with no funny after taste. This will supply both vitamin c and magnesium - and it is even gentle enough that I put a little in my 19 year old cat's food to help him with his immunity and constipation! Do your self a favor and check this gem out today!

A wonderful, easy to take and easy on the stomach, form of vitamin C, buffered with Magnesium. Stated from someone sensitive. Being in a powdered form, it has no added ingredients, which is very appreciated by those of us with histamine intolerance and MCAS. We all know vitamin c is a wonderful supplement to lower inflammation, and in many cases, help with histamine issues, so the benefits are great for the ones dealing with these things. Taste is mild «citrusy» - recommend blending the powder with a glass of cold water, and drinking with a straw, to spare the tooth enamel, as well as if you are sensitive to the taste - it will much easier slide down that way. However, the taste does not really bother me. The size of the packaging is good - I imagine it will last for a while. I have not been using for long but, overall, it seems like a good quality vitamin c, for a fair price, considering the size. Cheers!
