Unique C contains Vitamin C in a buffered Ascorbate form. Ascorbate is a Vitamin C molecule with a mineral ion. All Vitamin C must link up with a mineral before it can be absorbed into the blood stream. By supplying minerals along with Vitamin C, Unique C supports the immediate assimilation of Vitamin C in the body. Because Unique C is in the Ascorbate form and the presence of minerals help to act as natural buffers, it helps prevent stomach irritation that is common in non-buffered formulas.
Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid belongs to a class of vitamins which are termed water-soluble nutrients.

As a water soluble vitamin, the body is able to excrete any unneeded levels of Vitamin C, which allows for flexible dosing.
