Buffered Vitamin C (formally called Calcium L-Ascorbate) is a factor in the normal development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. Calcium Ascorbate is another name for vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which has been buffered by a specific quantity of the mineral calcium. Combining ascorbic acid with calcium produces a supplement that is less acidic and therefore easier on the digestive tract. This allows for the use of higher doses without side effects such as diarrhea, rashes and stomach aches that may occur in sensitive individuals taking pure vitamin C. Powdered form so it is easy to add to smoothies.
Who Benefits from Buffered Vitamin C? Individuals with bleeding gums or frequent colds and infections may not be getting enough vitamin C to suit their needs. Physical and mental stressors, such as inadequate sleep, excessive or intensive exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption, and a diet low in fresh fruits and vegetables will increase daily requirements. Oral contraceptive users as well as pre and post surgery patients may maintain vitamin C status with supplementation.
