C/Lysine Plus may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals wishing to supplement their diet with Vitamin C and L-Lysine.
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. It also
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 lipoprotein (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage.
addition, Vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alpha-lipoic 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.
L-Lysine is required for collagen cross-linking. Collagen cross-linking
is important for resiliency and elasticity of the collagen and elastin
present in all connective tissues and blood vessel walls.
formation of new collagen, fibroblasts secrete immature collagen
strands and a Vitamin C- and copper-requiring enzyme, lysyl oxidase.
Lysyl oxidase oxidizes the free amino group of the immature collagen’s
lysyl side chains. Once oxidized, these lysyl side chains spontaneously
engage in various reactions between collagen strands to bring about
cross-linking. As a result, a complex network of collagen strands is
formed, providing elasticity and resiliency. L- Lysine has also been
shown to be effective in supporting the immune system.
