Vitamin C provides support to the body's immune system by protecting cells from oxidative stresses.

Calcium helps maintain bone density. Adequate calcium as part of a healthy diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life. Calcium not only serves as the principle component of skeletal tissue, but also plays a vital role in many bodily functions.
Calcium Ascorbate Powder Information
Calcium not only serves as the principle component of skeletal tissue, but also plays a vital role in many bodily functions.
This is Nutribiotic's most alkaline (buffered) form of vitamin C. Helpful for those bothered by more acidic forms or people desiring a calcium boost from their vitamin C.
NutriBiotic Calcium Ascorbate is manufactured by dissolving pharmaceutical grade ascorbic acid in a solution with calcium carbonate (mined from the earth). NutriBiotic Calcium Ascorbate is a fully reacted compound and not a dry mix of calcium carbonate and ascorbic acid.
The manufacturing procedure for NutriBiotic Pharmaceutical Grade Ascorbic Acid involves 15 steps.
- Steps 1 thru 9 (Starch Hydrolysis): Vegetable starch is broken down into simple sugar (D-Glucose) by the action of heat and enzymes.
- Step 10 (Hydrogenation): D-Glucose is converted into D-Sorbitol.
- Step 11 (Fermentation): D Sorbitol is converted into L-Sorbose.
- Step 12 (Acetonation): L-Sorbose is combined with an acid at low temperatures.
- Step 13 (Oxidation): The product is then oxidized with a catalyst, acidified, washed and dried forming L-Gluconic Acid.
- Step 14 (Hydrolysis): L-Gluconic Acid is treated with hydrochloric acid forming crude ascorbic acid.
- Step 15 (Recrystallization): The crude ascorbic acid is filtered, purified and milled into a fine crystalline powder.
This is Nutritbiotic's most alkaline (buffered) form of vitamin C. Because the 10% calcium content of this product is fully reacted with and bound to the vitamin C component, there is not hint of tartness. It provides significant levels of calcium with vitamin C in a gentle, alkaline form. Helpful for those bothered by more acidic forms or people desiring a calcium boost from their vitamin C.
In 1980, after nearly ten years in the nutritional supplement industry, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of the world's only two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., NutriBiotic began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. NutriBiotic felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, they found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. NutriBiotic Rice Protein powder meets that need without soy, milk, egg, wheat or yeast.
In 1987 NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of their labors in their range of products containing Citricidal, including their skin cleansers, shower gel and bubble bath, dental gel, deodorant stick, foot powder, multi-purpose liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.
At NutriBiotic, they stand committed to providing the very best for you and your family and are pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.
