UNLABELLED Vitamin C is present as ascorbic acid (Asc) with antioxidative properties and as its oxidation product dehydroascorbic acid (dAsc). Asc is actively transported from blood to gastric juice where it prevents formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines and protects mucosa from reactive oxygen species. Another important function of gastric mucosa is(More)
