Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble form of vitamin C that is of paramount importance to life. In 1937, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Albert Szent-Györgyi (Wikipedia) for his studies of its biological functions: vitamin C supports numerous body functions including the immune system. Despite its importance, the body does not manufacture vitamin C and it is water-soluble. As a result, vitamin C is not stored in the body and must be consistently replenished by consuming fresh foods or taking supplements. All fruits and vegetables contain some amount of vitamin C. Rich sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, sweet peppers, berries, tomatoes, broccoli, leafy greens, potatoes, and cantaloupe.
Among common nutrients and biochemicals, vitamin C is probably the most popular. Once ingested, vitamin C is readily absorbed by the intestines and continues its transport through the watery components of the human body, helping to build collagen protein and doubling as an antioxidant along the way. Ascorbic acid, together with sodium, potassium, and calcium salts, are typically used as antioxidant food additives. Commercial vitamin C is often a combination of ascorbic acid, Sodium Ascorbate and/or other ascorbates such as Calcium Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate.
Vitamin C has multiple functions as both a coenzyme and cofactor. Vitamin C is responsible for helping to build and maintain our tissues and strengthen our immune system. The body needs it to synthesize carnitine, which is vital in the transport of energy to mitochondria and to produce dopamine in the nervous system and adrenal glands. It is also essential for the oxidation of phenylalanine and tyrosine, and the conversion of folacin to tetrahydrofolic acid. Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants that help block damage caused by free radicals, byproducts of our bodies transforming food into energy. Vitamin C neutralizes potentially harmful reactions in the watery parts of the body, such as blood and fluid both inside and surrounding cells.
Ascorbic acid is required for collagen synthesis and plays a structural role in bone, cartilage, and teeth. As a participant in the hydroxylation of proline, vitamin C is needed for the production of collagen, a protein substance that all fibrous tissue integrity depends on. These fibers are found throughout the body, providing a firm but flexible structure. Collagen is the "glue" that strengthens many parts of the body like the muscles and blood vessels. Vitamin C can help the body repair damaged tissue, maintain healthy collagen, and promote healthy teeth and bones. Together with flavonoids, polyphenolics, and water-insoluble compounds (such as Vitamin E), l-ascorbic acid helps other antioxidants become more effective and successful in their work.
