• Cures scurvy
• Is less acidic in the buffered form
• Is stored in many tissues throughout the body
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is stored in many tissues throughout the body‚ but the adrenal glands contain the highest concentration. Vitamin C cures the world's oldest known nutritional deficiency disease‚ scurvy. It was first isolated by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi in 1928 from pork adrenal glands and called hexuronic acid. In 1933‚ its chemical structure was established. It was successfully synthesized‚ and the name was changed to ascorbic acid. Humans are one of the few species that cannot manufacture vitamin C. We must depend on our diet‚ or nutritional supplements‚ as a source of this vitamin. Vitamin C exists in nature in both its reduced form‚ l-ascorbicc acid‚ and in its oxidized form‚ l-dehydroascorbic acid. L-ascorbic acid is the most active form. However‚ in the body they convert back and forth to each other in a reversible equilibrium‚ and both prevent scurvy (antiscorbutic). Buffered vitamin C refers to the sodium‚ calcium‚ magnesium‚ and potassium ascorbate salts. These forms of vitamin C are buffered from acidic to a pH of 6.5-6.8. This buffering may be less likely to cause gastric irritation when taken in higher doses. When not being taken as a nutritional supplement‚ the best dietary sources of vitamin C are found in fresh fruits like citrus fruits‚ strawberries‚ cantaloupe and currants‚ and fresh vegetables like Brussels sprouts‚ collard greens‚ lettuce‚ cabbage‚ peas‚ and asparagus.
