Vitamin C is best known as an antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals.* NOW® AlphaSorb-C® includes Transport C-PLUS®, a trademarked combination of Threonic Acid-enhanced, buffered (non-acidic) Calcium Ascorbate with Alpha Lipoic Acid. Threonic Acid is a Vitamin C metabolite that has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C.* Alpha Lipoic Acid functions as a free radical scavenger that can help regenerate Vitamin C in the body and may also enhance its utilization.* With this unique formula, NOW has created a well-absorbed and highly biologically available Vitamin C supplement.*


Suggested Usage

Take 1 capsule 1 to 3 times daily, preferably with food.
