The L-enantiomer form of Ascorbic Acid is known as Vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient that must be ingested due to the inability to synthesize Ascorbic acid. It is believed that the antioxidant property of Vitamin C is one of its greatest benefits. Antioxidants play an important role of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen such as free radicals and peroxides.
Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and an important part of skin, bone, and joint health. Vitamin C is needed for amino acid metabolism and the utilization of many nutrients such as folic acid and iron.

I take C myself but recently my vet suggested that I start using it for my cat with urinary problems which he feels come from stress. After reading The Healthy Cat Book by Belfield DVM I immediately started all by cats on vit C
I've been a HR customer for over 15 months now and have tried many of their products, always good product delivered on time at a good price. I looked at the ingredients of popular retail supplement brands, and found that many of the basic ingredients can be purchased online here at HR at a significant per serving price savings. If you have a little do-it-yourself initiative stop spending money on the brand/coloring/flavoring/packaging of the retail favorites, and get your basic ingredients here at HR. For full disclosure, I have to make a higher initial investment to get the ingredients I want and many of them don't taste the best without flavor enhancement. But if you are serious about your supplementation for workouts or general health, in my experience at HR you get well packaged quality ingredients that arrive on time and will save you money on a per use basis over time.
Arrived quickly & packed well. Like the ziplock top. Very fine powder that mixes well with my smoothies, juice, water whatever. Like not having to take alot of large Vit.C pills as I megadose. Would order from this company again.
As pure as it gets; powerful and bitter taste, just like it should be. Very fine powder that dissolves fast in water.
