I've only just started this product as I had to use up another product I had. I was horrified to see the size of the tablet, it is not huge but for me it is rather large. I've choked several times on larger tablets so am petrified of swallowing them. I have to cut them up. I don't know if this ruins the slow release but I cannot do anything about that. The size of the Magnesium slow release are perfect for me to swallow. I would have given 5 stars but for the large tablets. I think it's a great product considering it is slow release.
Alda, yes, I'd have to agree with you, the Vitamin C w/SRT tablets are on the large size. As you noted, Jigsaw Mag w/SRT tablets are about 1,000mg in size, a very managable size for most. But the Vit C w/SRT tablets are about 1,250mg in size in order to deliver 1,000mg of Vitamin C & 100mg of Lysine per tablet.
However, it is ok to cut the tablets in half as the SRT will still do it's job of breaking the tablet down slowly. Just don't grind it down into a powder as that would ruin the SRT.
Otherwise, if that's too much trouble, please do contact us at 480-0951-0840 so that we can get your a full refund. -Patrick Sullivan Jr., Jigsaw Health CEO Alda Venables on 24th Nov 2016
This is hands down the best Vitamin C supplement I've ever taken. I bought this as soon as it came out a couple weeks ago. I was VERY excited about it being sustained-release because I've always had digestive problems when I've taken high amounts of vitamin C. There's a ton of research supporting the benefits of higher doses, but I could never follow it because taking that high of a dose (even just 1 or 2 grams a day) always gave me diarrhea. Super frustrating! But so far with this vitamin C, I have not had a single emergency bathroom stop! I took 2 tablets - which is 2 grams! - right when I received it, and I had absolutely NO hint at all of stomach issues! Took another 2 at night like the suggested use says to do, and still great. After a couple days, I increased to taking 4 pills at a time to test that dose out, and still no problems at all! I'm so thankful for this product and SO excited that I finally found a vitamin C I can take a lot of!! Can already tell a boost in immunity while everyone around me is getting sick. And I'm also seeing an improvement in my skin healing quicker too, which is a bonus. Feel more energized and like I've been bouncing back better from stressful stuff in life. Love that. Thank you Jigsaw for creating it... All of my family members are getting a bottle for Christmas. :) kesoccer10 on 23rd Jan 2015
Jigsaw's C w/srt has been a boon to my family's health. We've been taking it regularly without any tummy upset (1000 mg for the kids and 2000 mg for the adults). When any of us has experienced a hint of something coming on - a scratchy throat or extra phlegmy-ness - we've added on regular dosing throughout the day. In the throes of winter and all of us are still hale and hearty! Sarah on 23rd Jan 2015
This is some magical Vitamin C, beyond explanation. It gives me energy! :) enc on 23rd Jan 2015
