Buffered Vitamin C contains 100% pure, corn-free
vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), specially buffered with
calcium and bioflavonoid complex.
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
Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in
humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chain-breaking
antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl
radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory studies show that
vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and lowdensity lipoproteins (LDL) against atherogenic
peroxidative damage. In 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
Research has also demonstrated ascorbic acid’s ability to
positively affect function of the immune system by
optimizing synthesis of integral components of our
Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine by a sodiumdependent 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.
Buffered Vitamin C tablets may be a useful dietary
supplement for individuals who wish to obtain the
antioxidant action of vitamin C in a buffered mineral
ascorbate form that may minimize stomach irritation
associated with the acidity of regular vitamin C
