    i dont know much about the brand but the price looks good. I just did a quick search on bulk powders/vitamins etc from a few other sites and the one u have your eye on looks good.

    I often wonder if the slow release vitamin c tabs have greater benefits over normal vit c.
    Powder is definitely a better way of getting high doses of vit c.

    I just looked at pure organic rosehip powder on iherb - looks like a good way of getting a lot of a good product.
    I was advised to take a mixture of ester C and rosehip.

    I am taking this http://www.iherb.com/Life-Extension-Buffered-Vitamin-C-Powder-16-oz-454-g/3968#p=1&oos=1&disc=0&lc=en-US&w=buffered vitaminc powder&rc=71&sr=null&ic=1.
    It is effervescent in water, tastes pretty bad. You´ll need buffered Vitamin C if you have a sensitive stomach. This one in doses above 2 grams gave me diarreah. I am trying to slowly increase with divided doses.

    After this I will trial what maryb says, vitamin C from food sources. I have on eye an expensive product by New Chapter. Too bad they are owned by an evil company now

    I am switching to whole food supplements alltogether when possible.

    I like the Thorne buffered C. It is the only kind that doesn't bother my bladder with acidity.

    You can buffer your vitamin C (as ascorbic acid powder) yourself, by adding some sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to it.

    If you place say half a teaspoon of ascorbic acid powder in a glass of water, and then add roughly an equal amount of sodium bicarbonate to the glass, this will fizz up in the glass, making a nice refreshing fizzy vitamin C drink which is buffered, and no longer acidic.

    Be aware of what you vitamin C is buffered with. I recently realized that mine is buffered with calcium. It was doubling my Ca intake. I stopped taking my Ca until I am through this bottle of C.
