Vitamin C Powder

Vitamin C Powder

This crystallised acid is a synthetic copy of one of the compounds or ‘vitamer’ that make up vitamin C. Being a very popular additive in today’s market Indigo Herbs brings you this fine unadulterated Ascorbic Acid to add to whatever you might like to give you that extra vitamin C kick to your diet. Our bodies do not produce Vitamin C naturally like plants and animals, so we need to take it in through our diet. This powder can supplement our daily intake. Taking a higher dosage of Vitamin C is thought to bring additional health benefits.  

The history of how this crystal was discovered came from the observation of how lemon juice helped sailors reduce the chances of getting the dreaded scurvy. First thought to be the acidic content of the lemon juice that helped combat this disease tests were then carries out using vinegar. When vinegar didn’t have the same results as the lemon juice a Norwegian research team deduced that it must be a lack of a dietary supplement that was causing the disease. Several studies were conducted until the British chemist Walter Norman Haworth was able to correctly determine the structure of Vitamin C/Ascorbic Acid in 1933. From this point Ascorbic Acid has been produced synthetically to become an additive in many foods to enhance flavour and nutritional content.

Also known as: Ascorbic acid powder, Vitamin C, Vitamin C crystals

Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the safest and most effective vitamins whose benefits are many.  It is absolutely vital in collagen production – collagen is a simple protein and an essential part of our connective tissue – the very framework of our body.  All of the components that hold our bodies together such as skin, bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums, tendons and cartilage rely upon collagen.  Vitamin C is directly responsible for influencing collagen synthesis and helps to shield us from the symptoms of collagen deletion – most famously scurvy!  A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals which are harmful by-products of digestion or foreign substances in the atmosphere.  Inside the body it changes form to a negatively charged compound called ascorbate which helps to protect nerve cells and improves psychological function.  It has been known as the antioxidant’s antioxidant because it functions to protect vitamin E from oxidation too, another vitamin that interacts with free radicals to prevent cell damage.  Vitamin C strongly enhances the absorption of iron - when they are consumed and digested together, vitamin C combines with the iron to form a compound that is more easily absorbed.  Crucial to the overall health of the body in its efforts to fight off infections – both bacterial and viral – white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than other cells and require constant replenishment to keep the immune system working to its optimum capacity, especially during and after intense physical exercise.    

Vitamin C contributes to:

  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels
  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones
  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage
  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of gums
  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin
  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of teeth
  • normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • normal functioning of the nervous system
  • normal psychological function
  • the normal function of the immune system
  • maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise
  • the protection of cells from oxidative stress
  • the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E
  • Vitamin C increases iron absorption

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Simply scoop the recommended dosage into water or fruit juice and stir.


½ a level teaspoon of Vitamin C Powder equates to around 2,000 mg of Vitamin C which is far more than the recommended daily allowance. Just under ¼ of a teaspoon will equate to the highest recommended daily allowance of 1000 mg. 

Please Note: A detoxifying reaction may occur if you take too much Vitamin C and result in an upset stomach.

1 teaspoon equals 4 grams (1 tsp = 4g)

Although I am familiar with Vitamin C powder, this is the first time I bought this brand. I think this product is great, at a good price. It does dissolve properly. To anyone thinking of purchasing this product, I can fully recommend it. As a bonus, international delivery, very helpful for those living abroad or in case you want to make a present to someone living overseas. Well pleased. Thank you!
