We’ve had many a laugh in our family watching members try to drink other vitamin C supplements which twist one’s mouth inside out from sourness. But we all LOVE this one and it’s super powerful!
Optimal Vitamin C Powder by Seeking Health provides over 2,500 mg of buffered vitamin C in a great-tasting effervescent powder. This important antioxidant may help support the immune system, healthy connective tissue and skin and normal levels of glutathione within the body. As an antioxidant, vitamin C may protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed as normal products of metabolism and in response to environmental exposures. We are exposed to free radicals each day in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun. In addition to supporting the body’s healthy response to these exposures, the body also needs vitamin C to make collagen, a protein required to help wounds heal.*
Optimal Vitamin C features antioxidant- and immune-supportive bioflavonoids quercetin, rutin and hesperidin. These are all naturally occurring bioflavonoids found in citrus fruits. Quercetin is also found in red wine and tea. Our vitamin C is buffered with calcium and magnesium, making this product a gentler vitamin C option than other powders on the market. It is sweetened with stevia extract, without fructose or other undesirable sweeteners. When added to water, the powder turns into a delicious fizzy drink, making it easy for kids or others with finicky palates to use.*
Also try our Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C, providing 1000 mg of vitamin C per serving with an advanced liposomal delivery format to facilitate optimal absorption.*

May not be best for sensitive folks
I love SH products and this is the first time I've reacted to one of their supplements. I believe that I am becoming very sensitive to ascorbic acid which I blame on my postpartum health since I used to tolerate it just fine. I took this for a few days to fight a possible infection and it ended up irritating my bowels (to be expected with high doses) and my urinary tract. I'm only sharing my review to caution those who may be sensitive to certain supplements. Otherwise, I think it's a great product and I would probably use again if I were facing an infection of some sort.
No better Vitamin C on the market!!!
I have tried SO many vitamin C brands and I have finally found the one I like. This one not only tastes AMAZING, that I actually crave it, but it also has some of the highest Vit C content per scoop vs other brands.
