There is a very popular belief that has been circulating for about a decade that vitamin C is a complex found in whole foods and that ascorbic acid is only a fraction of that complex and thus, ineffective and even harmful.

In this solo show I tackle the two most common arguments supporting that view including: 1) does ascorbic acid negatively affect tyrosinase, and 2) does ascorbic acid negatively affect ceruloplasmin?

Vitamin C pioneers Linus Pauling and Dr Hugh Riordin of the Riordin Clinic did not use a "whole food vitamin C complex" - they used ascorbic acid. Make sure to read the show notes to catch all of the clinical studies that I linked supporting the safety of supplemental ascorbic acid.
