In brief: Not likely

Asorbic acid or known as vitamin c does not play a therapeutic role in removing lead toxicity.
Chelation therapy is required.

In brief: Oral chelation

The removal of lead from the body is called chelation.
Caedta has been the usual method, but oral treatment with Ascorbic Acid can be effective in reducing the lead burden.
