What is Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)?

Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is of paramount importance to life. In 1937, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Albert Szent-Györgyi (Wikipedia) for his studies of its biological functions: vitamin C supports numerous body functions including the immune system. Despite its importance, the body does not manufacture vitamin C and it is water-soluble. As a result, vitamin C is not stored in the body and must be consistently replenished by consuming fresh foods or taking supplements. All fruits and vegetables contain some amount of vitamin C. Rich sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, sweet peppers, berries, tomatoes, broccoli, leafy greens, potatoes and cantaloupe. 

Among common nutrients and biochemicals, vitamin C is probably the most popular. Once ingested, vitamin C is readily absorbed by the intestines and continues its transport through the watery components of the human body, 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.

Vitamin C helps the body repair damaged tissue, maintain healthy collagen, and promote healthy teeth and bones. 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.

Is PureBulk Vitamin C the bioactive form L-Ascorbic Acid?

Yes. PureBulk has never sold anything but the bioactive form of Vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid. In fact, there are no major manufacturers producing the non-bioactive form of vitamin C, D-ascorbic acid, or the racemic DL-ascorbic acid that contains equal parts of the bioactive and non-bioactive forms of vitamin C.

Purity and Concentration of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

PureBulk's L-ascorbic acid is a food grade product derived from corn and contains no fillers, additives or anti-caking agents. Keep cool and dry, away from strong light and heat. Do not freeze.

Bioavailability, Mixing and Solubility of Vitamin C

L-ascorbic acid, the chemical name for Vitamin C, is the most bioavailable form of ascorbic acid (more than D-ascorbic acid) and is frequently added as a nutrient in commercially produced foods and beverages. This product is a white or yellowish white fine granular powder that dissolves quickly in water and has a sour taste. It can be mixed with water or fruit juices or drinks. It is normal for ascorbic acid crystals to discolor slightly upon exposure to air and moisture. 

For people who are sensitive to sour products or for those who do not like the sour taste of ascorbic acid supplements, we suggest using ascorbic acid capsules. 

Please note that ascorbic acid is a relatively fragile molecule and it may be lost from foods during preparation, cooking, and/or storage. Ascorbic acid is easily destroyed by oxidation, particularly in the presence of heat and alkalinity.

FAQ
Is your Ascorbic Acid non-GMO?
PureBulk’s ascorbic acid is non-GMO. We have a non-GMO certification from the supplier but since it is not possible to test or validate non-GMO status after the fact, we do not claim this on the label.
Is it from china? Is it lead-free?
It is purchased from a reputable supplier based on our specifications. Our strict compliance to all current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) regulations ensures that you get exactly what you order, and that the quality, potency, and purity of our products meet the standards you require. If a raw material doesn’t meet our quality specifications, we reject it. The lead content is batch specific. Typically, the lead has been less than 1 or 2 ppm using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS). A COA of any batch purchased can be also requested through our COA Request Form
Why does the label not say L-ascorbate?
Our Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is not L-ascorbate. It is however, L-Ascorbic Acid and we have chosen, as most other manufacturers, not to put it on the label.

This is a great Vit. C, I put it in my orange juice in the morning to take my collagen pills and in the afternoon at work I put it in cold water with Splenda and it tastes just like lemonade, so you can actually make lemonade with this vitamin C.
