So, what is l-ascorbato sódico?

L-ascorbato sódico, also known as sodium ascorbate, is a natural and highly bioavailable form of vitamin C. This white, crystalline powder is derived from ascorbic acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Sodium ascorbate is water-soluble and commonly used as a food additive to preserve freshness and prevent discoloration. It also enhances the flavor of certain foods and beverages. As a dietary supplement, l-ascorbato sódico is known to support immune function, promote collagen synthesis, and improve iron absorption. Its mild taste and easy digestibility make it a popular ingredient in health products and supplements.
