Sodium Ascorbate

 

Sodium Ascorbate is a more bio-available form of Vitamin C that is an alternative to taking ascorbic acid as a supplement. Sodium Ascorbate can reverse the development of atherosclerotic disease and helps in heart attack prevention. In addition, Sodium Ascorbate plays a significant role in the elimination of the chronic and acute infections. Moreover, it is considered to be an anti-cancer agent. Sodium Ascorbate produces cytotoxic effect in an array of malignant cell lines which includes melanoma cells that are particularly susceptible.

Sodium Ascorbate is an Alkaline (non-acidic) form of Vitamin C   Sodium ascorbate is a form of vitamin C that has been bound to the mineral salt sodium. As vitamin C, the basic properties and health benefits of sodium ascorbate are virtually identical with ascorbic acid, but the mineral salt buffers, thus lowers the acidity of ascorbic acid. The buffered sodium ascorbate may enter the blood stream more slowly than ascorbic acid when taken orally.

Indication:

Prevent Vitamin C deficiency, common problems of individual suffering from diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, pulmonary and cardiovascular disease. Strengthens immune system and increases body resistance from infections.

Precaution:

Should be given cautiously to patients with sodium-restricted diet and patient with renal calculi.


 

What Is Sodium Ascorbate?

Sodium ascorbate is one of a number of mineral salts of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). The molecular formula of this chemical compound is C6H7NaO6 As the sodium salt of ascorbic acid, it is known as a mineral ascorbate.

 

Vitamin C Supplement

Sodium ascorbate consists of a combination of sodium and vitamin C, or ascorbic acid. In this mixture, sodium serves as a buffer, creating a less acidic supplement than those made entirely from ascorbic acid. This means it may be easier to tolerate if your digestive system is sensitive to acid. Your body absorbs and uses sodium ascorbate just as well as natural vitamin C, according to a review published in the October 2013 issue of “Nutrients.”
