Sodium Ascorbate

Sodium ascorbate is a more bioavailable form of vitamin C and an alternative to taking ascorbic acid. As a food additive, it's used as an antioxidant and an acidity regulator. Bioavailability refers to the degree to which a nutrient becomes available to the target tissue after it has been administered. 1,000 mg of sodium ascorbate contains 889 mg of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and 111 mg of sodium.

Ascorbic acid is a sugar acid with antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid and its sodium, potassium, and calcium salts are commonly used as antioxidant food additives. Birds and most mammals produce ascorbic acid in the liver where the enzyme L-gulonolactone oxidase converts glucose to ascorbic acid. Humans, some other primates, and guinea pigs are not able to make L-gulonolactone oxidase because of a genetic mutation and are therefore unable to make ascorbic acid.
