Description

In this sustained release form, vitamin C does not upset the digestive system, even in high doses.  Mineral ascorbates do not lower stomach pH or cause irritation.  Since the body can only absorb a certain amount of the vitamin during a given period of time, sustained release also allows for better absorption.

Mineral salts of ascorbic acid (mineral ascorbates) are less acidic and therefore, considered “buffered”.  Therefore, mineral ascorbates are often recommended to people who experience gastrointestinal problems (bloating, upset stomach or diarrhea) with other forms of vitamin C, such as plain ascorbic acid.

Multi-Scorb® provides 1,000mg of vitamin C from mineral ascorbates as well as a potent bioflavonoid complex to provide support for the immune system, to support wound healing, to support the cardiovascular system, and other benefits.‡
