  • pure, crystalline vitamin C
  • a potent water-soluble antioxidant*
  • supports the immune system*
  • promotes connective tissue formation*

High amounts of vitamin C – several grams daily – have been advocated for optimizing both immune function and antioxidant support.* Evidence for the efficacy of consuming high amounts of ascorbic acid is due in large part to the groundbreaking research conducted in the 1970s and 1980s by two-time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, PhD.

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 &ndash to ensure greater bioavailability and efficacy.*
