Vitamin C 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. 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,
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 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 system.
Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine by a sodiumdependent transport process that is intake dependent. 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.
