Calcium ascorbate is a non-acid form of Vitamin C that does not irritate the stomach. Since it is non-acidic, it does not cause acid upset in the stomach or diarrhea. It also replenishes the calcium that is excreted in the urine due to the Vitamin C's chelating properties. Vitamin C is an important factor in the normal development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums, it promotes healthy skin and bolsters the immune system to assist in the body's natural healing processes. In the body, it is involved in the absorption of iron, maintains collagen - a protein necessary for the formation of skin, ligament and bones - and acts as an antioxidant in the protection of the body from free radicals. Rose hips, a natural source of bioflavonoids, have been added in Trophic's formula to enhances the absorption of Vitamin C.
