This surprised me.


"Ascorbic acid is not vitamin C.  The complete complex of vitamin C as found in natural food sources is composed of these elements:

- Rutinbiofavonoids (vitamin P) factor K

- Factor Jfactor P Tyrosinase

- Ascorbinogen ascorbic acid

All of the above elements must be present in order for the body to absorb and benefit from the vitamin complex. Since synthetic ascorbic acid does not contain the full complex, your body must either gather the missing components from the body's reservoir, or simply eliminate the ascorbic acid from the body through the urine without benefit to the body. "


Ascorbic acid kills your good bacteria. They add ascorbic acid to many juices, including some organic apple juices, and do not have to list it in the ingredients.

Better than nothing ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_hip

Medical uses
 
Rose hips are particularly high in vitamin C content, one of the richest plant sources available. However, RP-HPLC assays of fresh rose hips and several commercially available products revealed a wide range of L-ascorbic acid content, ranging from 0.03 to 1.3%.[2] Rose hips of some species, especially Rosa canina (Dog Rose) and R. majalis, have been used as a source of vitamin C. During World War II, the people of Britain were encouraged through letters to The Times newspaper, articles in the British Medical Journal, and pamphlets produced by Claire Loewenfeld, a dietitian working for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, to gather wild-grown rose hips and to make a vitamin C syrup for children. This was because German submarines were sinking many commercial ships: citrus fruits from the tropics were very difficult to import.
 
Rose hips contain plenty of lycopene, an important and strong antioxidant that is an integral part of low density lipoprotein (LDL) as well as of many cellular membranes.[3] Lycopene in rose hips differs more in its isomer distribution than in other sources (tomatoes, pink grapefruit).[citation needed]
 
Rose hips also contain some vitamin A and B, essential fatty acids, and antioxidant flavonoids.[citation needed]
 
A study of a rose hip preparation for treating rheumatoid arthritis concluded that there was a benefit, apparently due to both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects.[4]
 
Rose hips are used to help prevent colds and influenza.[

Beware of Ascorbic Acid Synthetic:

There are many cheap vitamins sold in grocery stores that are synthetic, and not worth the money you pay. It's best to buy from natural food stores and know your ingredients!
Don't believe me. Look it up yourself!
