Ascorbic acid is not vitamin c - hogwash!

What is vitamin C? Is there such a thing as a vitamin C complex? Why do so many people now believe in the complex?

Ascorbic acid is not vitamin c - hogwash!

Natural News has a new feature called Imagine my surprise when I clicked on vitamin C and this came up:

Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means
Ron Garner (See book keywords and concepts)

The drug industry calls it vitamin c. Ascorbic acid is not vitamin c, but rather a fraction, the outside layer of the biologically utilizable vitamin c complex, as shown in Figure 16.1. i- ASCORBIC ACID -1 ASCORBICEN BIOFLAVINOID COMPLEXES TYROSINAS E P FACTORS K FACTORS J FACTORS 1- ASCORBIC ACID -1 Figure 16.1 Complete vitamin c complex Likewise, alphatocopherol, which is sold as Vitamin E, is only part of the Vitamin E complex. As Richard Murray points out: ... synthetic vitamins are not vitamins at all but synthesized FRACTIONS of a vitamin complex ...

It is unfortunate that this mythical disinformation continues because of ignorance and/or greed.
Here are some keys to understanding the nature of ascorbic acid/vitamin C:
