  • Vitamin C (chemical names: ascorbic acid and ascorbate) is a six-carbon lactone which is synthesized from glucose by many animals. Vitamin C is synthesized in the liver in some mammals and in the kidney in birds and reptiles.
  • Vitamin C acts as an electron donor for 11 enzymes. Concentrations of vitamin C appear to be high in gastric juice.Schorah et al. found that the concentrations of vitamin C in gastric juice were severalfold higher than those found in the plasma of the same normal subjects.
  • Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is water-soluble and easily destroyed. Vitamin C is also known as, L-ascorbic acid, dehydroascorbic acid, the antiscorbutic vitamin, L-xyloascorbic acid and L-threo-hex-2-uronic acidy-lactone.
  • Ascorbate is found in many fruits and vegetables. Citrus fruits and juices are particularly rich sources of vitamin C but other fruits including cantaloupe and honeydew melons, cherries, kiwi fruits, mangoes, papaya, strawberries, tangelo, tomatoes, and water melon also contain variable amounts of vitamin C.
  • Vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bean sprouts, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens, red and green peppers, peas, and potatoes may be more important sources of vitamin C than fruits.
  • Vitamin C has been produced commercially by extraction from plants, by chemical synthesis, by fermentation and by mixed fermentation/ chemical synthesis methods.
  • Vitamin C is important for the production of collagen, connective tissue and protein fibres that give strength to our teeth and gums, muscles, blood vessels and skin. In the immune system, vitamin C helps the white blood cells to fight infection. It helps the body to absorb iron. Iron is needed to make haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood which transports oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
  • It is essential in wound healing and in the formation of collagen, a protein important in the formation of healthy skin, tendons, bones, and supportive tissues.
  • Sodium Ascorbate is a natural, non-acidic (pH-neutral) form of Vitamin C, which is gentler on the digestive system than the commonly used ascorbic acid. Sodium Ascorbate can be added to many foods such as milk and soup without affecting taste. Sodium Ascorbate is more commonly used for therapeutic dosages.
