C - SALTS
VITAMIN C AS EFFERVESCENT
MINERAL ASCORBATE CRYSTALS
"The BEST form of vitamin C I have found is
called C-SALTS, an effervescent powder that
is non-acidic and sodium-free. It's made by
Wholesale Nutrition" says Andrew Weil, MD,
in "Natural Health, Natural Healing", p.340
C-SALTS COMES in 2 sizes:
* 227 grams ( 8 oz, 43 drinks)
* 735 grams (26 oz, 140 drinks)
Each non-sodium carbonated drink provides:
Vitamin C 4000 mg 6700%
Potassium 365 mg 14%**
Calcium 145 mg 14%
Magnesium 55 mg 14%
Zinc 2 mg 14%
* Percentage of US Recommended
Daily Allowance for adults.
** RDA not established. This is
a research estimate.
- What's the best way to take
megadoses (from 2 - 50 grams) of Vitamin C
every day? All the solutions to this
problem, until now, have had disadvantages
such as: (1) High acidity and sour taste
(ascorbic acid, crystal and tablet form).
(2) High sodium (chewable tablets & sodium
ascorbate crystals). (3) Very bitter taste
(calcium ascorbate crystals). (4) Unwanted
excipients (all tablets). (5) High cost
(all tablets and calcium ascorbate). Many
persons buy the least expensive form of C,
ascorbic acid crystals, and mask the taste
by mixing in orange juice, not realizing
the high-sugar juice costs more than the C.
C - SALTS - You'll
get your vitamin C as a good-tasting
carbonated mineral water beverage for less
than 5 cents per gram, PLUS a good supply
of hard-to-get minerals all in solution as
their highly-absorbable ascorbates. Notice
there is NO SODIUM. Of course, there are
NO sugars, flavors, or colors of any sort.
In fact, there are NO excipients whatever,
you get just what's on the label.
IT TAKES JUST A FEW SECONDS to mix up a
C-SALTS drink and is just the ticket as a
digestive aid after meals, or just as a
convenient, pleasant source of megadoses
of vitamin C. In addition, over 94% of the
ascorbic acid's acidity is neutralized by
the effervescent reaction resulting in a
carbonated drink similar to mineral water.
Add JUST 1 OUNCE of cold
WATER onto a slightly rounded teaspoon of
C-SALTS. Swirl the mixture. Add more water
or juice only after the bubbling subsides.
Drink and enjoy. Add more water and drink
any leftovers. C-SALTS is normally cloudy.
- It's imperative to understand that
with EACH drink you'll be getting 4 full
grams (4000 milligrams) of vitamin C. Most
persons can handle this amount in one
dose, but some who are unaccustomed to
large doses can easily get diarrhea and/or
gas with as little as 1 gram. It'll help
to take your C-SALTS with or after a meal.
C-SALTS looks and tastes much like mineral
water, so be careful how much you take.
THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT NOTICE APPLIES TO
POTASSIUM & MAGNESIUM ASCORBATES & C-SALTS
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS REPLACE THE CAP AS SOON
AS POSSIBLE since C-SALTS quickly absorbs
water from the air. DO NOT REFRIGERATE
C-SALTS since humidity in the bottle will
condense onto the crystals and start the
reaction. Effervescent forms of vitamin C
are VERY HUMIDITY-SENSITIVE. So DO NOT PUT
DAMP SPOONS into the bottle! DO NOT ALLOW
WATER TO SPLASH into the cap or bottle! DO
NOT REFRIGERATE! Replace DRY cap TIGHTLY.
C-SALTS will effervesce & pour easily for
two years after opening if kept properly.
Folks in humid areas such as Florida,
Hawaii, or Louisiana: TAKE SPECIAL CARE!
