Product Overview

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) has several mechanisms of action that give it wide-ranging value to body structures and functions. It is a potent 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.

Thorne in my side.

Posted by noneofyourfrigginbusiness on Jan 01, 2011

Supposedly OK quality (who knows) but if you email Thorne Research directly with specific questions about this product they play games and ignore you. The person who answers emails never states their name and job title either. Thorne Research needs to realize that their business model (which includes dealing with actual customer inquiries!) is in need of serious help. I never did get a reply to any of my questions after over 45 days. Shame on you, Thorne Research.

Love Thorne products but...

Posted by Reviewer2025838 on May 04, 2011

I just can't take ascorbic acid, bothers my stomach too much. Ascorbyl palmitate as in TwinLab Allergy-C gives me no problems at all.
