Supports Healthy Immunity, Bones, Joints, Blood Vessels, Skin and More
Vitamin C is a factor in the maintenance of good health and in the normal development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth, and gums.
Vitamin C is the most popular vitamin and antioxidant. The body cannot make its own, so getting enough vitamin C from the diet is essential. Vitamin C is sometimes considered the “go-to” supplement as it has a wide range of benefits in the body. It is most commonly used to strengthen immunity and prevent the cold and flu, but it also improves wound healing time, boosts immunity, and promotes healthy, youthful skin, strong bones and clear blood vessels. Interestingly, the only species that cannot produce their own vitamin C are also the only species who develop atherosclerosis, ie. hardening of the arteries. This suggests a clear role for vitamin C in cardiovascular health.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, protecting the body from disease and aging and even helping recycle other antioxidants such as vitamins A and E, glutathione and lipoic acid, making them more effective. Due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine effects, vitamin C is also effective for allergy relief, and at high doses it can act as a gentle laxative for occasional constipation. Vitamin C is needed for the synthesis of adrenal hormones, making it an important nutrient for combating the negative effects of stress.
AOR’s Vitamin C formula is a high dose, pure ascorbic acid and can benefit everyone, especially those who have a family history of cardiovascular disease, seasonal allergies, weak immune system or people who do not regularly consume citrus fruits or other foods rich in vitamin C.

This is always helpful when I'm avoiding getting sick in the winter.
This is one the the cleanest products on the market from a health food store perspective. Healthy Planet offers this product as a much more reasonable price but it is still expensive but only because we are probably comparing it to a a large chain drug store, typical shelf offering. AOR is by far one of the better companies
All vitamin C supplements are synthetic, the only natural type is from foods. That being said if you are going to take any supplement make sure it has the least amount of fillers. I chose this brand because looking at the ingredients, it had the shortest and safest ingredients. The capsule casing itself is supposed to be vegi-based. I was previously taking a big box store brand and only noticed recently that it contained talc, which I suppose gave it some sort of anti caking effect, hence the chalky texture. Big mistake, it is well known that talc is not the safest of substances. True or not I would rather not take any chances. So the AOR product costs more, but if getting more for you money is more important than your health you should not bother with taking supplements to begin with. As for C truly believe, along with D, that we need extra of it, as long as I have been taking both I have felt a lot better and have been healthier. Always read the ingredients and always look them up, less is better and in this case AOR fits the bill.
High quality, but very expensive. I am a student and I might have to choose a cheaper price, next time.
The price is very expensive. I usually buy the same quantity of an equivalent supplement from another store, for much less.
My Naturpath recommended this product.
Vitamin C should be a staple supplement for everyone as a primary antioxidant. Almost every cell in the body needs vitamin C and it's a great anti-stress companion to B vitamins. The adrenal glands, the heart muscle, the white blood cells of the immune system, the lens of the eye and more have high demands for vitamin C.
AOR is a solid Canadian company and maker of premium supplements; a bottle count of 300 capsules of pure ascorbic acid at the price that Healthy Planet Canada sells it for is a 'steal'. I keep a bottle on my desk at work and in my home office so the larger bottle is ideal for my needs.
