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.

This product is excellent because it is easily absorbed and there is no abdominal discomfort. I take megadoses of C and this is the best one I've found.
