Can you tell me does sodium ascorbate work with lysine to clear arteries as well as ascorbic acid?
Great question, unfortunately no studies and all we have to go on is the weight of the anecdotal evidence, which has mostly been with ascorbic acid. So the answer is we don't know and recommend as much ascorbic acid as you can tolerate, then using sodium ascorbate for the rest of the dosage.
There is a difference between how ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate enter the blood stream. Ascorbic acid is fast and almost immediate, and would be in the blood stream before the vitamin has a chance to break down.
Sodium ascorbate, while easier on the lower throat, is released into the blood stream more slowly, so there is time for the vitamin to break down before it reaches the blood stream. I think higher dosages of sodium ascorbate should compensate.
