INTRODUCTION. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential micronutrient required for normal metabolic functioning of the body (1). Humans and other primates have lost the ability to synthesize vitamin C as a result of a mutation in the gene coding for l-gulonolactone oxidase, an enzyme required for the biosynthesis of vitamin C via the glucuronic acid pathway ().Cited by: Vitamin and mineral requirements in human nutrition World Health Organization The Joint FAO/WHO group of experts reviewed the full scope of vitamin and minerals requirements, including their role in normal human physiology and metabolism and in deficiency disease conditions.

In the book Vitamin C and the Common Cold published inDr. Pauling devotes a chapter to orthomolecular medicine. The use of high levels of ascorbic acid in the prevention and treatment of the common cold is a practical application of the principles of orthomolecular medicine.

L-ascorbic acid (C 6 H 8 O 6) is the trivial name of Vitamin chemical name is 2-oxo-L-threo-hexono-1,4-lactone-2,3-enediol. L-ascorbic and dehydroascorbic acid are the major dietary forms of vitamin C [].Ascorbyl palmitate is used in commercial antioxidant : K Akhilender Naidu.
