Good for Daily Regimen
by Dan from Illinoison Jul 1, 2009
This seems to be a very easy way to get Vitamin C, plus the fairly good balance of minerals.
(I would have liked it to contain a higher proportion of magnesium versus calcium, but this is remedied by taking magnesium ascorbate separately or adding to make a custom mix.)
The fine powder dissolves quite quickly and thoroughly, and the taste is quite different than plain ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate.
Personally, I don't like the taste of sodium ascorbate, plus it leaves my mouth with a salty taste all day.
Ascorbic acid is OK, but it does not dissolve very quickly, and I think having the additional minerals is a benefit for daily use.
I use the ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate over and above my daily regimen when I get sick, but as I am becoming more sophisticated (e.g. taking extra Vitamin D in the winter, and taking the Vitamin C four or five times a day without fail), I find that I am not getting sick nearly as much as I used to, and it is not as serious when I do.
I also give this to my kids (and also magnesium ascorbate).
Infants and toddlers have a hard time sleeping when they are sick -- even if they just have a cold.
The Vitamin C will often relieve the symptoms long enough for them to get to sleep and have a good rest -- and then my wife and I can get some rest, too!
I just wish I had read about Klenner, Cathcart, and Pauling before our first child was born;
it would have saved a lot of misery for the whole family!
C-Salts and magnesium ascorbate are easy to give to the young ones because they dissolve quickly and the taste seems to be OK for them when some juice is added.
Shake well after dissolving when using a sippy cup in order to get all of the bubbles out -- otherwise the pressure will tend to make the liquid leak out if the cup is left on its side.
