What is Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is of paramount importance to life.

 

Among common nutrients and biochemicals, vitamin C is probably the most popular helping to build collagen protein and doubling as an antioxidant along the way. Ascorbic acid, together with sodium, potassium, and calcium salts, are typically used as antioxidant food additives. Commercial vitamin C is often a combination of ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbate and/or other ascorbates.

 

Together with flavonoids, polyphenolics, and water insoluble compounds (such as Vitamin E), l-ascorbic acid helps other antioxidants become more effective and successful in their work.
