Buffered Vitamin C
If you have been a listener or follower of Joe for any amount of time, you know that Buffered Vitamin C is one of his favorite nutriceuticals. However, it is important to understand not only the benefits of Buffered C, but also why is it crucial to use the correct formulation.
The Buffered Vitamin C has to be L-Ascorbate and pH neutral. It cannot be a mixture, or ascorbic acid because that form is simply too acidic for the body.
We are all aware of the effectiveness of Buffered Vitamin C for the immune system and other areas, but what people do not realize is the effect that Buffered Vitamin C has on other areas and functions in the body. Such as:
- Collagen Structure
- Liver Support
- Mood and other Brain/Neurological Functions
- Circulatory Issues
- Bone Health
- Cellular Detoxification
- Cardiac Support
- Raising Glutiathione
The body’s demand for ascorbates (Buffered C) increase with the increase of life demands. Such as:
- Chemical Exposures
- Exercise Routines
Additionally, disease states can increase the body’s demand for Buffered C. Such as:
- Diabetes (Shown to improve elasticity of vessels)
- Heart Disease (Decrease damage to vessels)
- Depression, Anxiety (Increase dopamine production)
- Osteopenia, Osteoporosis (Increases collagen formation)
- Joint Inflammation (Improves repair mechanisms)
With Buffered Vitamin C, the more you can tolerate the better. You cannot really “overdose” on C. You should attempt to go to bowel tolerance, as the body will eliminate any excess.
1000mg twice a day, if taking the tabs, or ½ teaspoon twice a day, if using the powder.
