Why take Buffered Ascorbic Acid?
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is stored in many tissues throughout the body, but the adrenal glands contain the highest concentration. Humans are one of the few species that cannot manufacture vitamin C. We must depend on our diet, or nutritional supplements, as the source of this vitamin.
Buffered vitamin C refers to the sodium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium ascorbate salts. These forms of vitamin C are less acidic and may be less likely to cause gastric irritation when taken in higher doses.
Those with an increased need for vitamin C include:
- Burns or Injuries
- Tobacco or Alcohol Abuse
- Chronic Illnesses
- Current Infection
- Prolonged Stress
- Post Surgery
- Exposure to Toxins
The following drugs can deplete vitamin C and may increase your need to supplement:
- Aspiring and salicylates
- Loop diuretics
- Oral contraceptives
- Tetracycline antibiotics
Approximately 15% of people taking moderately high doses of vitamin C experience abdominal gas, bloating, and cramping. The buffered vitamin C is not acidic and may solve this problem.
