What is Magnesium Ascorbate?
Magnesium ascorbate is a non-acidic buffered form of Vitamin C (ascorbate) bound to the magnesium ion. Magnesium ascorbate provides a benefit over regular Vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) as it provides around 60mg of bioavailable magnesium per gram (1000mg) making it around 6% magnesium by weight. This product is 100% magnesium ascorbate with nothing else added or taken away, this product contains no fillers or binders.
Many who cannot tolerate regular ascorbic acid (due to its weak acidity) are recommended magnesium ascorbate as a non-acidic buffered alternative.
