Sodium ascorbate is one of many mineral salts of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). The compound has the formula C6H7NaO6. As the sodium salt of ascorbic acid, it is called an ascorbic acid mineral. It is not more bioavailable than any other form of vitamin C supplement.
Sodium ascorbate is produced by dissolving ascorbic acid in water and adding an equivalent amount of sodium bicarbonate in water. After cessation of effervescence, the sodium ascorbate is precipitated by the addition of isopropanol.
As a food additive, sodium ascorbate is an antioxidant and acidity regulator under E No. E301. It is approved as a food additive for the EU, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. NutriBiotic sodium ascorbate is a non-bitter, non-acidic, fully reactive, highly soluble form of buffered vitamin C. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that the body cannot produce and, therefore, must be supplemented daily. Vitamin C has several beneficial purposes, including developing and maintaining healthy skin and bones, and plays an important role in many biochemical reactions. Vitamin C supports the body's immune system by protecting cells from oxidative stress.
Sodium ascorbate is used as a cosmetic additive due to its properties for resisting wrinkles and making the skin fair.
