Vitamin C Supplements

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin. It is the most sensitive of all vitamins to heat. It is destroyed by alkalis, copper salts, cooking and canning. Slow cooking is more damaging than rapid cooking, even at raised temperatures. It can be saved in cooking/canning in absence of oxygen.

It is an actively reducing substance present in living tissues, and reduces silver nitrate, ferricyanide, methylene blue etc. Being water soluble it can penetrate every cell membrane, except, the fat cells, and helps to keep the cell membrane intact which is important for the efficient functioning of the cell.

Ascorbic Acid is easily absorbed into the bloodstream from the upper part of the small intestine. The amount of Ascorbic Acid in different tissues: liver, adrenals, pituitary, brain, kidney, spleen and corpus luteum have relatively high concentration; blood cells contain over more than the bloodstream.

Vitamin C also makes collagen, which holds connective tissues together in skin, bone, teeth, and other parts of the body.
