Regular Vitamin C is just ascorbic acid. This can be hard on some people’s gastrointestinal systems. However, when the ascorbic acid is “buffered” with the mineral salts potassium, magnesium, or calcium, it is easier on the stomach and allows for higher servings to be taken.
Buffered Vitamin C
Clarke Bioscience’s Buffered Vitamin C is an all-natural supplement that is designed to be easy on the stomach while maintaining your daily intake of this incredible nutrient.
Buff up your immune system with Buffered Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a naturally occurring vitamin that is produced in citrus fruits and vegetables. For our bodies’ metabolic functions to work, Vitamin C is essential. Vitamin C assists in many different ways, from supporting collagen formation to building blood vessels, heart valves, bone, skin hair and teeth, to reducing oxidative stress at the cellular level.
Buffered Vitamin C is a powerhouse nutrient that is well known and commonly used for its wide array of benefits.
Buffered Or Unbuffered – What’s the Difference?
Unlike regular Vitamin C, Buffered Vitamin C’s lower acidity is easier on sensitive stomachs.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) becomes “Buffered” when a mineral salt is combined with the acid. Because of this, the pH level of Vitamin C becomes more neutral and less acidic. This more neutral pH level makes Buffered Vitamin C easier to digest.
There is no nutrient discrepancy between Buffered and Unbuffered Vitamin C. So you’ll get the same element, but be able to take a higher concentration of Vitamin C, maximizing the documented health benefits of this amazing vitamin.
Why Increase Your Vitamin C Levels?
Support upper respiratory health
Similar to Vitamin D, most research reveals that Vitamin C supports the upper respiratory system and immune health, supporting your health year round.
A natural antioxidant
Vitamin C is an antioxidant which helps protect your body against the effects of free radicals at the cellular level.
Free radicals are cell damaging oxygen species formed as a by-product of your body burning fuel (sugar) for energy. You cannot stop it. However, we can reduce the oxidative stress through the use of antioxidants such as Vitamin C, thereby promoting healthy aging.
Vitamin C is not naturally produced by the body
Unlike most other mammals, humans do not produce Vitamin C. We can only absorb Vitamin C through our diet.
Fruits and vegetables contain high amounts of Vitamin C.
While it is possible to get the amount of Vitamin C you need through a healthy well-maintained diet, for many, that can be difficult to manage.
Promote cellular and cardiovascular health
Research has shown that Vitamin C can help play a role in supporting cellular and immune health and preliminary evidence suggests it helps support cardiovascular health.
Protect and preserve smooth skin
Vitamin C supports skin health by supporting the production of collagen and elastin. This helps keep your skin plump and firm.
The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C help fight free radicals in your skin cells. Through these properties, your skin’s natural regeneration process is aided at the cellular level.
Likewise, Vitamin C halts melanin production which can help improve the appearance of uneven skin.
Why Take Buffered Vitamin C As a Supplement?
While Vitamin C is abundant in fruits and vegetables, it is noted that a majority of adults do not intake the necessary amount of servings each day. Likewise, it can be impractical to expect anyone to meet their necessitated amount of daily Vitamin C based on diet alone.
By taking Vitamin C a supplement, you can ensure that your daily intake is being met while also continuing to eat healthy and meet your nutritional goals. A combination of a healthy diet, exercise and proper vitamin intake is one of the most effective ways to maintain a healthy body and improve emotions.
Who Is At Risk For Vitamin C Deficiency?
- People dependent on drugs and alcohol
- Older people
- People without a balanced diet or who lack an abundance of citrus fruits and vegetables
- Pregnant and breastfeeding women
- People with issues relating to digestion and absorption of food, like those with Crohn’s disease
