Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous
biological functions. Foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of
collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all
connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint
cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups
of enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers - lysyl
hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases.
As such, Vitamin C is
essential for normal wound healing and capillary health. Vitamin C
participates in the biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain
neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine. Vitamin C is among the
most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a
water-soluble, chainbreaking antioxidant that reacts directly with
superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen.
studies show that Vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and
low-density lipoproteins (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage.
In addition, Vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alphalipoic acid,
and regenerates Vitamin E. The antioxidant functions of Vitamin C
appear to have clinical significance in providing protection from free
radical damage to the eyes, lungs, blood and the immune system.
