Vitamin C - Esterfied (60 capsules)
DESCRIPTION: Vitamin C 500mg Esterfied is a scientifically advanced form of Vitamin C which binds ascorbic acid to lipid metabolites such as fatty acids, esters, and fatty alcohols to enhance digestion, absorption, cellular uptake and retention as well as utilization of essential Vitamin C in the body.
FUNCTIONS: Vitamin C has numerous biological functions. 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. Vitamin C also participates in the biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norephrine. 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. Absorption efficiency and Vitamin C utilization may be greatly enhanced by the esterification process utilized in Vitamin C 500mg Esterfied. Numerous studies have demonstrated that esterfied Vitamin C demonstrates significantly better absorption and retention than other forms of Vitamin C including calcium ascorbate and ascorbic acid. And comparative studies using esterfied Vitamin C have shown significantly greater antioxidant activity over other forms of Vitamin C. Citrus bioflavonoids have been added to this formulation to enhance the biological benefits of Vitamin C.
