Appearance

White to slightly yellow crystalline powder, practically odorless

Description

Because the vitamin is water-soluble, it must be regularly replenished and is commonly found in fresh fruits, especially in the citrus family that is dominated by oranges, lemons, limes, and tangerines. Vitamin C (commonly referred to as ascorbic acid) is also abundant in green leafy vegetables.

Function

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is a water soluble, white crystalline material that is stable in dry form. Vitamin C has many functions: it can function as a coenzyme or as a cofactor in the body. In metabolism, vitamin C functions to accept and donate hydrogen. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, compounds which allow nerve impulse transmission between nerve axons.

Synonyms

Ascorbic Acid Coated USP FCC; Acidum Ascorbicum; Ascobic Acid; Vitamin C
