Description Ingredients Suggested Use

 Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) has several mechanisms of action that give it wide-ranging value to body structures and functions. It is an important water-soluble antioxidant; it enhances the immune system; and it supports connective tissue formation.*

Vitamin C is essential for the support of wound healing because it is a cofactor for the synthesis of collagen and other connective tissue components.* The combined effects of vitamin C on collagen synthesis, antioxidant status, and immune function make it an important nutrient for surgery patients and wound healing.*

Vitamin C is necessary for the action of the enzymes involved in phase I liver detoxification.* In addition, as an antioxidant it helps quench the free-radical intermediates created during this first phase of detoxifying substances in the liver.* Furthermore, vitamin C raises levels of the important antioxidant glutathione by increasing its rate of synthesis, thus enhancing the liver's phase II detoxification as well.* Vitamin C can also protect against the toxic effects of heavy metals such as lead, aluminum, and cadmium.*

The ascorbic acid products manufactured by Thorne contain only pure, crystalline vitamin C – without added corn starch, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents – to ensure greater bioavailability and efficacy.*

Ascorbic Acid One Gram is NSF Certified for Sport®.
