Also known as ascorbate and ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that’s absolutely essential for our survival. A well-known antioxidant nutrient, vitamin C supports the immune system and is involved in tissue growth and repair due to its role in the formation of collagen, the body’s main structural protein.*
Vitamin C is an electron donor, which is important for the synthesis of enzymes, and it’s a cofactor in the production of numerous essential biochemicals. Vitamin C is also involved in the synthesis of the amino acid carnitine, as well as various neurotransmitters.*
There are various forms of vitamin C available, so you may be wondering what the best form of vitamin C is, or whether or not it even makes a difference. Because vitamin C is acidic you’ll often find vitamin C supplements that include mineral ascorbates, which are mineral salts of ascorbic acid that are buffered and therefore, less acidic. There are also a number of natural substances that support and even enhance the absorption, bioavailability and benefits of vitamin C, including rutin, rose hips, and other natural sources of bioflavonoids.
The best form of vitamin C for you will depend on your lifestyle and health goals. Check with your health care provider or a certified nutritionist if you’re not sure what form is right for you.
