Ascorbic Acid is another name for Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is a popular antioxidant and one of the most widely used vitamins in the world.  Fine Ascorbic acid is a bioavailable form of Vitamin C in a powder form, so it can be combined with other powdered supplements or dissolved in liquid for easy ingestion. Vitamin C crystals are a soluble powder with concentrated levels vitamin C, intended to be mixed with water or juice for a daily supplement.

Unlike many mammals, humans cannot produce or store vitamin C in their bodies, so daily supplementation is recommended.  Vitamin C crystals may provide the body with maximum efficiency in using the vitamin. It is absorbed in the small intestine, and maximal absorption is believed to be attained by taking several small doses spaced throughout the day rather than one large dose. The crystals enable this type of dosing, as persons can drink an enriched beverage several times each day.

Vitamin C is essential for collagen formation and helps to maintain the integrity of skin and connective tissue, bone, blood vessel walls and dentine. It is essential for wound healing and facilitates recovery from burns.  It also facilitates the absorption of iron.

Vitamin C is best known as an antioxidant,  forms of molecules that help keep chemical reactions in our body in check. Damage to the lens of the eye, damage to molecules circulating around in our bloodstream, and damage to genetic material (DNA) in our cells are all examples of damage that have been shown to be prevented by vitamin C.
