Experts say that Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients. If there’s one vitamin I’d like to take everyday, that would have to be vitamin C. Us humans are not capable of producing this in our bodies thus we have to ingest it whether in food or supplements. A lot of readers have been asking me what vitamin C I take and I always have the same answer. Fern C. It’s high time that it finally gets reviewed don’t you agree? Continue reading for the full review and benefits of taking a non-acidic vitamin C.

How Much Vitamin C Do We Need?
According to experts, we need at least 500mg (for adults) of Vitamin C to be able to fully feel its benefits. There is minimal risk of overdose, since excess amounts gets excreted through our urinary tract. WARNING though, if you take too much Ascorbic Acid it would make you acidic and cause you more harm than good. That’s why I’m so relieved when Fern-C finally arrived in the Philippines.
Fern C Review
Most vitamin C is made out of ascorbic acid. Sodium ascorbate consists of a combination of sodium and vitamin C, or ascorbic acid. In this mixture, sodium serves as a buffer, creating a less acidic supplement than those made entirely from ascorbic acid. This means it may be easier to tolerate if your digestive system is sensitive to acid. This is perfect for me because I am actually acidic. When I used to take Vitamin C in ascorbic form, my stomach feels painful and gives my throat a burning sensation.
As a Sodium Ascorbate, FERN-C can be taken on an empty stomach. With its pH level at 7.5 to 7.8, it’s alkaline-based to neutralize acidity in the stomach. This makes it the perfect vitamin for on-the-go, busy bodies, who don’t always eat on time.
I started taking Fern-C again this year, and I must say I haven’t had colds or flu ever since! That’s a feat! Considering I never gave myself a flu-shot. I take 2 capsules daily, one in the morning and one at night. This also helps boost the collagen production for our body’s supply! I look and feel great everyday thanks to this vitamin. I highly recommend this to everyone in any age!
They also have COFFEE! Packed with not only Vitamin C but B Vitamins too. Perfect to give us that energy boost throughout the day! Woot woot!
