It plays an important role in the body and it is needed to maintain the health of the skin, cartilage, teeth, bone, and blood vessels. Vitamin C can be taken as a tablet or pill by mouth with or without food, 1 to 2 times daily.

Ascorbic Acid PKA

Ascorbic acid is a vinylogous carboxylic acid and forms the ascorbate anion when deprotonated on one of the hydroxyls. This property is characteristic of reductions: enediols with a carbonyl group adjacent to the enediol group, namely with the group –C(OH)=C(OH)–C(=O)–. The ascorbate anion is stabilized by electron delocalization that results from resonance between two forms. For this reason, ascorbic acid is much more acidic than expected. 

Ascorbic Acid in Food

Vitamin C occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables, although if the food is heated the vitamins can be diminished.
