The Molecular Structure of Ascorbic Acid – MasterKey to Health & Disease

In their 2019 landmark study, Osipyants et al. not only showed that prolyl hydroxylase depended upon ascorbic acid as substrate, but demonstrated definitively for the first time that ascorbic acid MUST BE IN THE SPECIFIC MOLECULAR STRUCTURE of L-ASCORBATE in order to suppress HIF-1a [25]!!
