Synthetic ascorbate will not kill off probiotic gut bacteria, unless the product contains residual mercury from the manufacturing process. The base ingredient for producing most ascorbate is corn syrup. The very hard corn kernel is broken down with an alkali, and the most common alkali used is caustic soda.
The United States produces 20% of its caustic soda from the Castner-Kellner process, an antiquated mercuric-cell manufacturing system from the 1800's. Some estimates claim that in the United States as much as 50 tons of mercury annually ‘disappears’ from the process. Most of it is not being discharged into bodies of water, or exhausted into the air.
Corn syrup has been shown to contain as much as .57 micrograms of mercury per gram, an enormously high number. At this upper limit a 12 ounce bottle of Coca-cola containing 39 grams of HFCS, would have more than 20 mcg of mercury.
If I choose to ingest a cassava-based form of ascorbic acid, it may have a binder like microcrystalline cellulose, which is produced from wood pulp, and caustic soda like sodium hydroxide and/or sodium hypochlorite as a bleaching agent.
Be extremely cautious in what you consume; carefully and thoroughly study all ingredients. Citric acid is made from caustic soda. Be suspect of anything bleached, whether it be foods like flour, corn, or rice, or bleached paper products like paper towels and toilet paper.
The microcrystalline cellulose in your healthy vitamin is being made in an enormous factory.

I recommend products that are natural to our well-being, and only ones that can be found in the grocery or health food store. Everything I recommend I do myself. Everything I do is on my website, and everyone can use my site to get back to good health, naturally. However, some people can be very deep in the woods, allergic to just about everything, while suffering from chronic pain and inflammation. Many times their intestines are a wreck, and their body is putting on weight to protect itself from toxins. Getting people back to a state of well being, naturally, takes time, patience, attention to detail, and experience.
