the only C for me
Alive Vitamin C powder is the only vitamin c I take. Our morning ritual involves this powder, fresh and frozen fruit and some juice blended in our Vitamix. Anytime someone is under the weather in our house, I give them a dose of Alive and they almost instantly feel better. I make sure to have a few on my shelf at all times.... nothing better.

It's very expensive if you want a lot of vitamin C but I like the fact it's not a synthetic vitamin C. The taste is good if you mix it with fruit juice.

Tastes like what it is made from
This has good ingredients, but a low level of vitamin C for putting up with the flavor (sour and not very good, but not totally nasty). Still trying to figure out a what to mix it with to make it drinkable.

Good and not so good
I have generally trusted Nature's Way products. Vitamin C does not have a noticible effect so that I could rate it's quality or effectiveness. I ordered the product, however, because it's ingredients are organic and it uses no ascorbic acid, difficult to find in a fast-absorption form of vitamin C (powder or liquid).
The two downfalls, however, are that it doesn't mix well nor does it taste very good. Perhaps it would require something artificial in order to be more easily mixed. But if there were a natural way to make it more mixable, I'd be appreciative!
Also, I'm surprised at the unpleasant taste when there are so many yummy sources of Vitamin C. Seems like they could have found something to make it a little tastier.
I may go back to the "pill" form as it's more convenient and palitable.
