What is Sodium Ascorbate?
Sodium ascorbate, a water-soluble salt, contains ascorbic acid or vitamin C combined with sodium. As a nutritional supplement, sodium ascorbate provides a less acidic alternative to the more common ascorbic acid. Besides its use as a nutritional supplement, sodium ascorbate is also found as a food additive.
Compared to other forms of vitamin C, sodium ascorbate may provide a more bio-available source of vitamin C, meaning that it is easier for the body to absorb and make use of sodium ascorbate.
Sodium ascorbate contains 111 mg of sodium and 889 mg of ascorbic acid. The addition of sodium buffers the acid content of vitamin C, resulting in lowered acidity.
Sodium ascorbate and other forms of vitamin C are important for the health of bones, connective tissues and blood vessels, and help the body to absorb iron needed for the production of red blood cells. It also acts as a highly effective antioxidant, preventing damage to essential molecules in the body.
Humans do not have the ability to make vitamin C, and must receive it through food sources or nutritional supplements. The FDA recommended daily allowance for vitamin C is 75 to 90 mg per day. Pure Source Nutiriton Sodium Ascorbate benefit those who do not eat a diet high in vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate is preferred over ascorbic acid by those who want to avoid food acidity.
