Getting enough Vitamin C? These test strips give fast accurate results for ascorbic acid levels in fruits, vegetables, juices & even urine; only $21.95 pack/100; discounts for quantity.

Details

These test strips are calibrated with vitamin C dissolved in water which you can also do with store bought tablets. This is useful for controlled science experiments and for comparing against different fruit & vegetable juices or urine.

Vitamin C levels are shown as percentages where 0.01% equals 10mg/100ml & 0.1% equals 100mg/100ml. A 1000mg vitamin C tablet dissolved in 1000ml of water should give you a reading of 0.1%.

Fruit juices that claim 100% or more of recommended daily allowance (RDA) may read higher than the strips can measure so you might need to dilute the juice. e.g. 9 parts water & 1 part of juice will reduce the concentration to 1/10 the original.

The color chart below shows what you might expect if there is a lot of citric acid in the juice. The citric acid can make the strips look more purple than blue. You can test the acidity of different fruits, try these pH 0-7 acid test strips.

I purchased this product to monitor urine levels of ascorbic acid after beginning Liposomal Vitamin C. These test strips are an indispensable tool to verify that, yes indeed, Liposomal Vitamin C greatly increases blood levels of Vitamin C. Anyone in doubt on the subject of Liposomal Vitamin C can easily and inexpensively confirm for themselves how effective this method of administration actually is. I heartily recommend these test strips to anyone considering Liposomal Vitamin C as an addition to their daily diet. Liposomal Vitamin C works and these test strips confirm it.
