This study was performed to determine whether synthetic ascorbic acid (AA) alone or in a natural citrus extract containing bioflavonoids, proteins, and carbohydrates was more bioavailable to human subjects. The effect of a single 500-mg ascorbate dose of the two forms and a placebo citrus extract on plasma ascorbate was examined in eight fasting subjects. A comparison of the areas under the plasma concentration-time curves showed that the citrus extract was 35% more absorbed than AA (p less…

Absorption and excretion of ascorbic acid alone and in acerola (Malpighia emarginata) juice: comparison in healthy Japanese subjects.

Young Japanese males after the ingestion of commercial ascorbic acid or acerola (Malpighia emarginata DC.) juice are tested to compare the quantities absorbed and excreted, indicating that some component of acerolas juice favorably affected the absorption and excretion of ascorBic acid.

The results suggest that the metabolic rate induced by feeding is the primary factor regulating ascorbate requirement.

Hesperidin, a citrus flavonoid, increases the bioavailability of micronutrients of Gallus domesticus (chicken) eggshell: in vitro study

Vitamin C: the known and the unknown and Goldilocks.

Vitamin C physiology; the many phenomena involving vitamin C where new knowledge has accrued or where understanding remains limited are reviewed; questions about the vitamin that remain to be answered are raised; and lines of investigations that are likely to be fruitful are explored.

Comparative bio availability of synthetic and natural vitamin c in guinea pigs

The two forms of ascorbic acid gave similar peak concentrations of serum ascorBate but the natural vitamin C peaked later and remained in the serum for a longer time period and the bioavailability of thenatural vitamin C was significantly greater than that of the synthetic ascor bic acid.

Ascorbic acid absorption in humans: a comparison among several dosage forms.

There was considerable intersubject variation in ascorbic acid absorption and there appeared to be good and poor absorbers of the vitamin.

Influence of Vitamin P (Vitamin C2) upon the Amount of Ascorbic Acid in the Organs of the Guinea Pig

The view that vitamin P acts upon vitamin C as a ‘sparing factor’ by slowing down its oxidation is put forward; this factor should be indispensable, for without it the organism would need vitamin C in much larger quantities than can be supplied by a normal diet.

Plasma and leukocyte ascorbic acid levels in the elderly.

A survey of ascorbic acid blood levels in the elderly population of a South Wales town found that more fruit was eaten by women than by men and more by nonsmokers than by smokers, and the levels were higher in women than in men, and higher in nonsmoker than in smokers.
