Although the vitamin C is listed on the label as ascorbic acid, as soon as you add water to this product, the ascorbic acid is converted into mineral ascorbates, due to the presence of sodium bicarbonate. If you do research on the Internet, you'll see that a common recipe for vitamin C in ascorbate form is to take ascorbic acid, then add baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and water. So don't worry - even though the label says "ascorbic acid", as soon as you add water, all the ascorbic acid is converted to mineral ascorbates - a highly absorbable, non-irritating form of vitamin C.
Keep in mind that vitamin C transits through the body very quickly, so to increase absorption: drink one packet at a time and sip slowly. It can also have a bit of a diuretic effect, so best not to drink it before bed (or you may have to get up in the night to pee). Or if you have kids that might wet the bed, don't let them drink any within 3 to 4 hours of bedtime.
