Danie, I had thought that my body needed vitamin C. That's why I wanted to take it. The organic kind, such as one that my chiropractor showed me, does not have asorbic acid in it, at least not as a main ingredient. It also doesn't have peppermint but the only reason that I decided not to take the one that he suggested is because it has shellfish in it and I kind of keep kosher (I can't eat shellfish).
I know that you had written a post saying that chiropractors don't know about nutrition (because he asked me not to eat grain for 14 days and only eat fruits at night, for a liver cleanse with no sugar)...But, he is very supportive of natural healing and believes in the alkaline diet. So you would actually probably like him!
