How are synthetic and natural vitamin C distinguished from each other?

In brief: Same chemical but...

Both natural & synthetic vit.
C are the same chemical, ascorbic acid, so most feel there's no difference but most synthetic is from gmo corn, which i feel is wise to avoid. Natural c usually has beneficial flavonoids too. See http://vitamincfoundation.Org/naturalc.Htm for the argument that there is essentially no difference & see comment for link to the argument in favor of natural vit c.
