Ingredients & DescriptionAllergy Research Group - NutriCology -Buffered Vitamin C Powder, Cassava Source(300 grams)
Cassava root starch serves as the starting material for a multi-step process of manufacturing pharmaceutical grade ascorbic acid. It is well tolerated by individuals unable to tolerate other sources of vitamin C.
Buffered Vitamin C Powder contains high-purity ascorbic acid buffered with carbonates of potassium, calcium and magnesium. Buffered C has an acid-alkaline buffering action that can help control the increased acidity often associated with allergic reactions.
Developed by Stephen A. Levine, Ph.D. Cassava, or Manihot esculenta, is a bushy South American shrub with long tuberous roots, which are traditionally eaten like potatoes. Cassava root starch serves as the starting material for a multi-step chemical process of manufacturing ascorbic acid. The cassava root source vitamin C is processed with corn derived ingredients and is generally well tolerated by corn allergic individuals.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, 1 heaping teaspoon or more in 8 to 12 ounces of liquid between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. As with all vitamin C formulations, as one begins to achieve body saturation, “bowel tolerance” may be temporarily exceeded and diarrhea or loose stools may occur. As the high levels of vitamin C in the tissues become used up, the bowel symptoms should ease. Ideal for controlling acidity often associated with hypersensitivity reactions.
