Ascorbic Acid and Vitamin C are not the same. They are two different things. Vitamin C is a much bigger molecule and contains many different constituents apart from Ascorbic Acid - Ascorbic acid is found within the Vitamin C complex. Vitamin C contains a number of inseparable cofactors, such as rutin, bioflavonoids, factor k, factor j, factor p, ascorbinogen, protein chaperones, and various enzymes like tyrosinase, which together in their entirety constitute the Vitamin C complex. So kindly do not equate Ascorbic Acid with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is extremely powerful yet completely harmless compound and can be used in mega doses beneficially against many prevailing deceases including Cancer, AIDS and Heart deceases. The same cannot be said of Ascorbic Acid though. Kalyankrisnan P
