The information listed on Health Force Nutritional's website about the actual vitamin c content led to my disappointment, not in the quality but the quantity of vitamin c contained in the bottle. The recommended serving is given as 1 and 1/2 teaspoons. That serving will contain 5.4 grams of product ("read" vitamin c powder"). So that means there are 31 servings per bottle. In other words, 1 teaspoon of this product does not equal 1000 grams of vitamin c. As explained on the manufacturer's website, 1.5 teaspoons of this powder (which is 5.4 grams of the product) will deliver 302 milligrams of vitamin c. So, using an online calculator, I get the following. Roughly 9.4 grams of vitamin c is contained in a product that claims to have 171 grams of powder.
So, if you want to take, say, 1000 milligrams of vitamin c (a gram) in a glass of water, you would have to dissolve (approximately) over 4.5 teaspoons of this powder in the glass. To reiterate, my disappointment is not in the quality of the product but an incorrect assumption I made when purchasing that this bottle contained 171 grams of vitamin c. It doesn't. It contains 171 grams of vitamin c powder. It takes 5.Read more ›
* It's more natural than most vitamin C supplements. Most are synthetic; this one is derived from food.
* Because it's more natural and is made from acerola berries, the vitamin C is presumably in a more absorbable form.
* I like the idea of taking supplements in powder form, not tablets or capsules, and like that you can just mix this in juice or water.
* The glass bottle. It's a high quality dark brown glass which protects the product inside from light, which can damage supplements.
* The taste is okay. Not terrific, but not terrible either.
WHAT I DISLIKE:
Products should be labeled clearly in a way that is easy to read and understand. This one is not. Most of the print on the label is small and white against a multicolored background, making it a challenge to find the simplest information. I needed a magnifying glass and lamp to understand it, and even then there were parts I couldn't read.
What matters when buying powdered vitamin C isn't the price per bottle, but the price per gram.
According to the label there are 302 mg of vitamin C in each serving, and 31 servings per container. The serving size is 1.5 teaspoons. This means there are only 9.3 grams of vitamin C in the entire bottle. The very cheapest I've found this product on Amazon is $17.17. $17.17 divided by 9.3 means you are paying $1.85 per gram.
Let's compare it to another product available on Amazon: Nutribiotic Ascorbate Bio-C Powder (which is pure vitamin C, no acerolo berries). A 16 ounce bottle costs of Bio-C powder costs about $22.00. Each teaspoon contains 3000 mg (3 grams) of vitamin C. There are 181 teaspoons in the container, which equals 543 grams.Read more ›
As an added bonus, this stuff is very palatable. I actually enjoy it mixed in a glass of water and it goes undetected in my children's smoothies. It mixes easily, I just stir with the spoon I scooped it with.
I've had no issues taking this in higher doses, unlike other C Supplements, it's never caused loose bowels or upset stomach.
Thank you Healthforce for offering such a high quality product! We added this one to our 'Subscribe & Save' subscription.
