Granted, ascorbic acid is ascorbic acid, regardless of where it comes from, and, even if it were synthesized from petroleum it would still be the same stuff. BUT: in nature you NEVER find pure Ascorbic acid; you ALWAYS get vitamin C together with numerous co-factors, the major ones being rutin, hesperidin, and various other bioflavonoids. You need at least these co-factors to fully absorb and utilize vitamin C. So buying the cheap brand to save a few dollars is just paying to pass the vitamin in your urine, and keep the sewer system healthy.
Same kind of thing goes for various forms of iron, calcium, magnesium and many others.
