Kirkman Labs Buffered Vitamin C Powder Unflavored 7 oz (198.5 g)
HK$ 126.00
iHerb

Casein & Gluten Free Bio-Max Series Hypoallergenic Dietary Supplement Ultra Tested - Tested for More Than 950 Contaminants! Heavy Metals Bacteria Yeast Mold Pesticides & More... Kirkman developed our buffered Vitamin C products in response to the need for a higher daily dose of vitamin C (one to three grams) that physicians were recommending to our customers. At the time, Kirkman offered two forms of vitamin C — our popular chewable tablets and hypoallergenic capsules. These are dosed at 250 mg, but for customers who needed a higher dose, these products may have been impractical or inconvenient. Kirkman's Buffered Vitamin C Unflavored Powder offers 1100 mg (1.1 gm) in each recommended serving size of ¼ teaspoon. It is easy to administer and is great tasting. Our Buffered Vitamin C Powder is formulated with sodium, potassium and magnesium ascorbates to produce a buffered, acid balanced product. This product is very gentle on the stomach because the normal high acidity of ascorbic acid is counteracted by the ascorbates. This product is part of Kirkman's Bio-Max series, ensuring a form of vitamin C that is formulated to be extremely high in absorption qualities. The Bio-Max series of Kirkman products utilizes the form of the specific nutrient which has been clinically shown to be the best or one of the best forms of that nutrient with respect to absorption and bioavailability. Vitamin C is the most popular vitamin supplement in the United States. The human body does not manufacture its own vitamin C, therefore dietary sources and supplementation must be relied on to prevent deficiency. The list of health conditions where vitamin C has shown promise is very long. Its value in the good health of children is extremely important for the following reasons: Vitamin C supports the immune system Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and possesses free radical activity Collagen is the main protein substance in the human body. It holds our body together in the form of tissue, tendons, cartilage, etc. Vitamin C is essential in the production of collagen.

Vitamins, keeping us in good health

What are vitamins?

Vitamins are some sort of organic chemical and nutrient that are present in all living things, be it humans, animals, or plants. Vitamins are very important and are needed to sustain our life. Humans get vitamins through the food they eat as our body usually does not in amounts that are enough to sustain our life. It should be noted that humans' vitamins needs are vastly different than that of animals or plants as we have different biology. There are 13 different vitamins that are currently recognized.

Where do we get our vitamins?

We (humans) get our vitamins from food sources mainly, although Vitamin D is produced in our skin by exposure to the sunlight - or ultraviolet B light from the sun, to be precise. The vitamins that we absorb from food usually come from healthy alternatives such as fruits, vegetables, and meat. Therefore it is very vital that we should have a balanced diet that involves proper portion of every type of food to get the optimal amount of vitamins.

Besides food however, we can take vitamin pills nad supplements in the event we cannot receive enough vitamins through our daily food intake.
