Is it okay to take calcium ascorbate (non-acidic vit. C) if you're acidic and had acid problem?

Yes: I recommend everyone take 500-2000 mg of Vit C twice a day and if you have an acid problem it's wise to take a buffered form like calcium ascorbate. You should not have any difficulty tolerating this. If by "acid problem" you mean tendency to heartburn please see http://tinyurl.com/p88fxjm for great advice on approaches to curing it. ...Read more

Is Sodium Ascorbate the sane as Ascorbic Acid? What's the difference? Is it safe to megadose?

Not exactly the same: Sodium ascorbate is one of the mineral salts contained in ascorbic acid/vitamin C. It does not seem to be more bioavailable (available for use by the body) than other forms of vitamin C supplementation. There is also the down side that it contains sodium. I would discourage you from considering megadosing anything, including vitamin C. Stay well:) ...Read more

Can your body the same amount C-vitaming from absorb calcium ascorbate and ascorbic acid? I have problems with my stomach.

Yes: Yes, buffered ascorbate (including calcium, magnesium and sodium ascorbate) is absorbed as well as ascorbic acid. The best-absorbed form of vitamin C is liposomal Vit. C. Lyposphreric C, which is sodium ascorbate mixed with phospholipids for enhanced absorption, is a product I often recommend.

Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?

Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?

Not necessarily;same: All vitamins go by 2 names, their letter name & chemical name. Ascorbic acid is the chemical name of vit c, as pyridoxine is the chemical name of b6 etc.Ascorbic acid refers to both natural & synthetic forms.Almost all vit c supps are synthetic & most derived from corn which is likely gmo.I favor c from non-corn sources like cassava root.Calcium & sodium ascorbate are equally effective.See comment:. ...Read more
