Product Description

Most of the isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C consumed is unused by the body. What's worse, it puts a negative strain on your liver and kidneys to excrete it, and it is quite acid forming in the body! If a vitamin C is an ingredient of a product, it is synthetic and/or isolated. If it is naturally contained in the ingredient(s), it is naturally occurring (as it is in our product)! Ascorbic Acid and Calcium Ascorbate are synthetic/isolated forms of Vitamin C. "Ester-C" has a few elements added back to an isolated vitamin C molecule and is therefore more absorbable than Ascorbic Acid or Calcium Ascorbate. However, Truly Natural Vitamin CTM has all of the naturally occurring elements synergistically present and bonded (including naturally occurring bioflavonoids) because it is 100% food (100% Acerola Cherry Powder). Other products sometimes give the illusion of being totally or partially whole food products, but in reality, they actually are not! There are many "Vitamin C with rose hips and acerola" type products out there. Every one of those products we have seen has a very small amount of rose hips and/or acerola with a whopping amount of synthetic and/or isolated Vitamin C! Vitamin C mixed with whole foods is not the same as vitamin C contained in whole foods. The superfoods added "on the side" are good for you, but not the main ingredients or the supplement as a whole! Get your Vitamin C the way nature truly intended!

In line with other reviewers here, I believe this is a good quality product. Dissolves easily, glass bottle, taste's ok, so why the 3 star review??? When purchasing this product, I believed it contained 171 grams of vitamin c. Only after going to the manufacturer's website did I get the real skivvy. I don't think anybody here is trying to misrepresent anything, just that what's listed may lead to some wrong conclusions about what amounts of vitamin c is contained in this product. If the information I provide below was clear on the Amazon listing, I would not have bumped down the stars on this review.

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.

WHAT I LIKE:

* 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:

THE LABEL:

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.

THE PRICE:

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.

Finally, a truly natural Vitamin C supplement! I was relieved to find a safe alternative to ascorbic acid which uses genetically modified (conventional maize starch based) micro-organisms in it's production.

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.

I bought this vitamin c powder to combine with glycerin to make a vitamin c mask for my face and back of hands. It seems to be working well!

I know it may sound funny, but I judge the quality of a vitamin c product on how I "gravitate" toward it in my refrigerator. Crummy vitamin c will sit there for a year and never really "call me" to crave it. Next to Pure Radiance C this is the best vitamin C product, but Pure Radiance C is rather pricey, so for the price and the super saving shipping, this is a great product. I will order it again and really I love all Health Force products I have tried.

Bough this expecting good Vitamin C powder, but I discovered that the plastic seal on the outside is the ONLY seal on the bottle. The brown color of the glass is *not* dark enough to keep out light, so unsurprisingly the powder had oxidized. Oxidized Vitamin C powder is pretty much useless. They really need to rethink their packaging, and add an inner seal underneath the cap to keep air out. If you get this and it's brown, return it. If you happen to get this and it's still white then you're good to go.
