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.
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. Laboratory 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. Research has also demonstrated ascorbic acid’s ability
to positively affect function of the immune system by optimizing
synthesis of integral components of our immunological defenses.
C is absorbed in the small intestine by a sodium-dependent transport
process that is intake dependent. At normal dietary intakes of 60 to
100 mg, up to 80 or 90% of the vitamin C is absorbed. At higher
intakes, absorption becomes less efficient. Absorption efficiency and
vitamin C utilization may be greatly enhanced during conditions of
physiological stress, such as trauma or infection.
