Ascorbic Acid is more commonly known as Vitamin C. The most common natural sources of this essential nutrient are fruit and vegetables, but some people require extra. Ascorbic Acid is included on the World Health Organisation’s Model List of Essential Medications.Ascorbic Acid’s most vital role is in boosting the vascular and immune systems, helping the fight against a wide range of diseases.
