What is Ascorbic Acid?

Ascorbic acid is the Vitamin C: it belongs to the group of water-soluble vitamins. These substances cannot be accumulated in living organisms, so they have to be taken through nutrition. Ascorbic acid is sensitive to high temperature, so it's suggested the use during the coolest hours of the day.

What is Ascorbic Acid for?

Ascorbic acid has a strong antioxidant power that protects the oxidation of polyunsaturated fats, controlling the oxidation of Vitamin E too. It keeps plants healthy, It's essential in many metabolic reactions and biosynthesis of amino acids and hormones. Thanks to the antioxidant properties it enhances defence mechanisms of plant and prevents foliar infections. It also prevents free radicals.

Vitamin C, reducing Iron (III) to Iron (II), favours the Iron absorption. It also allows:

  • Normal functioning of the immune system;
  • Energetic metabolism;
  • Physiological functions;
  • Protect cells from oxidative stress;
  • Reduction of plant stress;
  • Hydroxylation of lysine and proline by proline hydroxylase and lysine hydroxylase;
  • Reduction of folic acid;
  • Regeneration of Vitamin E from α-tocopherol radical.
