What is the best vitamin c supplement?

Lypo-Spheric C: Until recently i would have said most vitamin c is created equal, but a relatively new formulation called lypo-spheric c is much better absorbed and can cross cell membranes better. See http://www.Livonlabs.Com/ it is pricier than other forms of c, but if you are motivated you can make your own liposomal vit c at home: see http://www.Quantumbalancing.Com/liposomalc.Htm.

After searching on their web sites, I can tell anyone who is interested that Lypo-Spheric C does not contain ANY vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate sold as "vitamin C" is not vitamin C and does not have all the components of complete vitamin C. It may be digested easier, but will not help your health or well being. The same is true for most ascorbic acid and sodium acetate products sold in the USA.

Is vitamin C the best cure-all vitamin?

No: There are no magic pills. The best "cure-all" has always been and remains eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

I'm looking for best vitamin C supplements. What do you recommend?

Not necessarily one: Best. If you really feel like you need to take a vitamin C supplement, as it will always be better to derive it from natural sources like fruits and vegetables, consider purchasing a supplement which is either USP or NSF certified. At least in these instances there is third party validation for the potency, purity, and limits of contamination.
