Which Vitamin C Supplement is for me? That is the question that most readers ask via e-mail, facebook or DM in instagram. I am not a doctor but all I can do is share my experience with brands I have tried. I categorized them to suit most types of people. Vitamin C has many benefits, from strengthening our immune system, building collagen, even skin lightening but with several brands out in the market. Which is right for me?
Recommended VITAMIN C FOR THE THRIFTY
Nagtitipid ka ba? (Are you trying to save money?) Then this brand is perfect for you. It only costs .80 cents per tablet and I think you can purchase it at 100s for more or less a hundred pesos (2 USD) and each tablet is already a whopping 500mg. Pros? It’s cheap. It works. Ascorbic Acid is pretty much the same thing and it just varies which brand. A generic brand such as Rhea works just as well as the more expensive kind.Cons? Not for the acidic and it is sour to taste since it’s tablet form.
Recommended VITAMIN C FOR THE ACIDIC
Okay, so you’re hyperacidic. You’re tummy is sensitive to ascorcbic acid. Why not try something like Sodium Ascorbate. I think there are 2 or more brands in the market but the most popular Sodium Ascorbate is Fern-C. Pros? It’s in easy to swallow capsule-form. It’s safe for acidic tummies Cons? It’s the pricier kind. I tried taking this because I had an acidic phase.
Recommended VITAMIN C FOR THE IMPATIENT
Recommended intake for Vitamin C for skin lightening is 1,500-3,000mg if you’re not up to swallowing 2-3 capsules a day then this one is for you. It has bonus of Rosehips too which I believe is good for the skin. It’s also pretty cheap at around 3-5php per tablet. Pros? It has 1,000mg of vitamin C per serving. Cons? Tablet is too big and hard to swallow. I tried taking this before when my mom was on her glutathione phase.
There you go! I hope these answers your questions! Just let me know if you’re curious pa on anything and I’ll try my best to return to them? 🙂 So, have you decided which to take na?
