Vitamin C

Vitamin C acts as an electron donor for 11 enzymes. Concentrations of vitamin C appear to be high in gastric juice.Schorah et al. found that the concentrations of vitamin C in gastric juice were severalfold higher than those found in the plasma of the same normal subjects. Vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bean sprouts, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens, red and green peppers, peas, and potatoes may be more important sources of vitamin C than fruits. Sodium Ascorbate is a natural, non-acidic (pH-neutral) form of Vitamin C, which is gentler on the digestive system than the commonly used ascorbic acid. Sodium Ascorbate can be added to many foods such as milk and soup without affecting taste. Sodium Ascorbate is more commonly used for therapeutic dosages.
