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.
