"I strongly recommend you sell ultrafine powder labeled as world finest. There is no problem in using DSM fine powder, but there is clear difference when you go mega dose with ultra-fine powder reaching more that 10 g a day. You can sell the fine powder or crystals, but they are second or third grade (larger) at least in terms of size of the granules of ascorbic acid. Those differences result in the difference in bowel tolerance doses, which Dr. Robert Cathcart, III, insisted as the ideal dose of oral megadose Vitamin C therapy to individuals." - Byeong Keun Ha, M.D., Ph.D.
Inteligent*Vitamin*C Supplies Doctors and Retailers with the World's Finest Vitamin C
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.
Physicians prescribe UltraFINE™ to achieve high ascorbic acid blood levels. Ascorbic acid is vitamin C. Humans lack the capacity to make this molecule and must obtain it in their diet. Pure ascorbic acid is bio-identical to the vitamin C molecules that are made endogenously by most plants and animals.
Generally, 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. The late vitamin C expert Robert Cathcart III, MD, prescribed high-doses of vitamin C to thousands of patients.
Doctor Cathcart found oral ascorbic acid to be twice as potent as sodium ascorbate and other ascorbate forms for many therapeutic applications.
Note: both both liposomal and intravenous vitamin C are administered as sodium ascorbates.
UltraFINE™ is Highly Bioavailable Vitamin C
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[ * ] Our preliminary studies show that UltraFINE™ ascorbic acid rapidly enters the blood stream, 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))
Ascorbic Acid Oral Gulp
Sodium Ascorbate Oral Gulp
Sodium ascorbate, having further to travel through the gut, is released more slowly when ingested orally and a slightly larger dose (4.9 g) reaches a maximum of around 20 mg/dl or 13 times the steady state maximum. (See table 2.)
"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 (more)
