Pure ascorbic acid is bio-identical to the vitamin C molecules that are made endogenously by most plants and animals.

What makes this vitamin C so special?
UltraFINE™ Vitamin C is a unique ultrafine L-ascorbic acid powder that dissolves almost instantly in water and has almost no taste. Doctors familiar with this product tell us that the DSM ultra-fine grade of powder is better absorbed and more effective than other vitamin C powders.
Tests show that UltraFINE™ Vitamin C is among the most absorbable, and thus most bioavailable form of ascorbic acid on the market.
Thank you for the ultrafine vitamin C. I didn't think it was possible to have a Vitamin C powder that dissolves as quickly and easily as the ultrafine product. My children think that it is also less sour, which has made it easier to make sure they are getting enough each day. Thanks! – Mark L.
What is the benefit of L-Ascorbic acid form of vitamin C?
Generally speaking, vitamin C can be purchased as either L-Ascorbic acid, a weak acid, or as Sodium L-Ascorbate. Ascorbic acid is the most common form of the vitamin and was used and recommended for oral consumption by Linus Pauling.
Vitamin C expert Robert Cathcart III, MD, prescribed high-doses of vitamin C to thousands of patients. Dr. Cathcart found oral ascorbic acid to be twice as potent as sodium ascorbate and other ascorbate forms for many therapeutic applications.
Vitamin C authors and experts Steve Hickey, PhD, and Hilary Roberts, PhD, explain that oral ascorbic acid (but not sodium ascorbate) enters the blood stream through the stomach lining.
Preliminary studies show that UltraFINE™ ascorbic acid rapidly enters the bloodstream, with levels peaking between fifteen and twenty minutes after intake. Four grams of UltraFINE™ ascorbic acid powder produces a blood concentration of 40 mg/dl, or roughly 24 times the steady state maximum. (Note: The maximum steady state vitamin C level in human beings is 1.3 mg/dl (women) to 1.5 mg/dl (men))
Sodium ascorbate, having further to travel through the gut, is released more slowly when ingested orally and a slighly larger dose (4.9 g) reaches a maximum of around 20 mg/dl or 13 times the steady state maximum.
"I have found that vitamin C in the ascorbic acid form is the best form to take orally. I have been able to achieve what I call the ascorbate effect with only ascorbic acid by mouth. Mineral ascorbates by mouth, while being fine sources of vitamin C, do not seem to carry the same punch." Robert Cathcart, III, MD
Finding Vitamin C that Isn't Made in China Isn't Easy
UltraFINE™ Vitamin C is not manufactured in China. Why don't other vitamin C products tell you where they were manufactured? Because almost all vitamin C products on the market are made from inexpensive Chinese vitamin C!
The new UltraFINE™ Vitamin C product is made entirely from highest-grade vitamin C manufactured in Europe. We use the finest powder (ultra-fine) of the highest-quality product on the market which has been trademarked as Quali-C***™ manufactured by DSM Nutritional products.
