Vitamin C as ascorbate - 300g powder

For people who have problems swallowing big vitamin C tablets

Vitamin C was discovered as one of the first vitamins at the beginning of the 20th century by the Hungarian Albert Szent-Györgyi. He isolated it from paprika and cabbage. The British chemist Walter Norman Haworth determined the molecular structure of the vitamin in 1933. Both received the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Chemistry in 1937.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others and available as a dietary supplement. Unlike most animals, humans are unable to synthesise vitamin C, making it an essential part of a healthy diet.

Function of vitamin C in the body

Vitamin C is required by the body for the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine and certain neurotransmitters. It is also involved in protein metabolism. Collagen is an essential component of connective tissue and supports normal functioning of blood vessels, cartilage, bones, skin, teeth and gums.

Vitamin C is an important physiological antioxidant and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants in the body, including the reduced form of vitamin E. It can protect cells from oxidative stress and respond to the immune system.

The highest concentration of vitamin C in the body is found in the leukocytes (white blood cells), eyes, adrenal glands, pituitary gland and brain.

Stomach-friendly form of vitamin C

Calcium-L-ascorbate is a natural form of vitamin C. After consumption, it is hydrolysed in the stomach into calcium and ascorbate ions. The gastric acid converts the ascorbate ions into ascorbic acid. Thus there is no increase in the acid concentration in the stomach.

Stomach-friendly vitamin C is also referred to as buffered vitamin C. Calcium ascorbate is a buffered salt form (mineral) of the water-soluble antioxidant vitamin C (ascorbic acid). The calcium is bound to ascorbic acid to buffer the acid nature of this vitamin, making it more gentle for the special needs of people with a sensitive gastrointestinal tract. The pH value of this buffered vitamin C is about 6.8 - 7.4 compared to ascorbic acid, which has a pH value of about 2.5.
