Vitamin C Ascorbic acid Test

Vitamin C Ascorbic acid Test

also known as: ascorbic acid

Vitamin-C and ascorbic acid are the synonyms of each other. If we want to grow, develop and maintain the tissues of our body then, we require Vitamin C or ascorbic acid. If there is a need to repair our tissues and to fight infection then there comes Vitamin-C. It is found in fresh fruits like kiwi, oranges and lemons. Excessive Vitamin C leads to diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, abdominal bloating and cramps, headache, insomnia and kidney stones. The test which is used to determine deficiency and excessive intake of Vitamin C is termed as the Vitamin-C-ascorbic-acid test.

We have to do certain preparations for the Vitamin-C-ascorbic acid test. These preparations are as follows.
• We have to do the urine test and blood test for this test. Before urine test, 6-8 glasses of water have to be drunk.
• We should not eat food rich in Vitamin-C before the test.
• It is preferred to do overnight fasting.

The test of Vitamin-C-ascorbic acid is fruitful for us in every respect. The uses of this test are as follows.
• If its deficiency is detected then, we can cure infection, severe burns, cancer and scurvy
• If its excessive consumption is determined then, it will cause vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal bloating and cramps, heartburn, kidney stones, insomnia and headache.
• It avoids worsening of the condition.
