Vitamin C is a commodity vitamin: we require large amounts of it for collagen synthesis, but we cannot produce it; 100% of our vitamin C needs are met by means of dietary intake. Sodium ascorbate is a buffered form that is less acidic, and therefore less likely to cause stomach irritation.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that we often assume we are getting enough of; yet, a dietary deficiency can leave us prone to a variety of illnesses, ranging from coronary heart disease to skin disorders and gum disease. Vitamin C also protects the body from the ravaging effects of oxidative stress by means of scavenging free radicals. Supplementation of vitamin C gives your body the tools it needs for collagen production; collagen is necessary for the growth and repair of your body’s tissues as a response to the wear-and-tear of daily life.
