Interactions with other medicinal products or other forms of interactions
The simultaneous use of acetylsalicylic acid with other acids from the NSAID class (non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory) can cause stomach irritation. Large doses of ascorbic acid can increase blood levels of acetylsalicylic acid and other medicinal or antibiotic acids such as tetracyclines.

L-ascorbic acid is a biologically active substance that has been identified as a distinguishing factor of fresh fruits and vegetables, able to prevent the onset of scurvy in humans. L-ascorbic acid is synthesized naturally (birds and pigs) in sufficient doses for normal physiological requirements. In special physiological moments of the lifespan of animal species of zootechnical interest, a rapid intake and high consumption of L-ascorbic acid is necessary. The main mechanism of action of ascorbic acid is based on reducing the oxidation potential, depending on this it can reduce metals. This allows the acid to take part in many hydroxylation reactions, important for metabolism. L-ascorbic acid is much more effective when administered with bioflavonoids, calcium and magnesium. In order to develop its antioxidant function, it should be administered together with other biological antioxidants, which ensure a strong synergism between them, especially with Vitamin E.
L-ascorbic acid is distributed in all animal tissues; no proteins were found that would create any specific connection with it. In all species, the metabolic process begins with the reversible conversion of ascorbic acid into dihydroascorbic acid. In general, the acid that is absorbed is eliminated through urine, sweat and feces. Acid excretion through urine depends on the reserves present in the body, on the amount from which it is taken and on the kidney functions.
