  • There exist altogether four stereoisomers of ascorbic acid. Erythorbic acid (D-isoascorbic acid) differs in the spatial configuration at carbon 5 and has less than 5 per cent of biological vitamin C activity. In guinea pigs, depending on an exogenous supply of ascorbic acid, a possible interaction of erythorbic acid with absorption, transport through the cell membranes at the tissue level, or with catabolism of ascorbic acid has been investigated. After oral administration, results suggest no… CONTINUE READING
