What Is It?
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is a powerful antioxidant and offers a wide range of support for the human body. It provides support for numerous physiological functions, including vascular integrity and immune function.
Uses For Ascorbic Acid
Cellular Function: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It is also involved in a variety of metabolic processes including cellular respiration and nutrient metabolism. Vitamin C aids in the absorption of iron and the formation of red blood cells, as well as the conversion of folic acid to active folinic acid. Vitamin C is also required for the synthesis of carnitine, neurotransmitters and steroids.
Immune Defense: Vitamin C supports the body’s defense system by enhancing white blood cell function, interferon levels, antibody responses, and secretion of thymic hormones. Additionally, it maintains healthy histamine release and supports lymphocyte formation.
Endothelial Health: Vitamin C is essential for the formation and maintenance of intercellular ground substance and collagen. Research suggests that it may also support endothelial function and healthy blood flow.
What Is The Source?
Ascorbic acid (l-ascorbic acid) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. The corn is GMO-free. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
