Vitamin C (Ascorbic
C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that maintains
skin integrity, helps heal wounds and is important in immune functions. It
also has antioxidant properties, helping to prevent cell damage by
neutralizing "free radicals" — molecules believed to be
associated with aging and certain diseases.
As a water-soluble vitamin, ascorbic acid performs its
antioxidant functions within the aqueous compartments of the blood and
inside cells and can help restore the antioxidant potential of vitamin E
(a fat-soluble antioxidant)
Vitamin C also functions as an essential cofactor for the enzymes involved
in the synthesis of collagen – the chief structural protein in
connective tissues such as bones, cartilage and skin. As such, vitamin C
is often recommended for wound healing and as an added ingredient in
supplements designed for healthy skin.
As a preventive against infections such as influenza and other viruses,
vitamin is thought to strengthen the cell membranes, thereby preventing
entrance of the virus to the interior of the cell. Support of immune cell
function is also a key role performed by vitamin C and an effect which may
help fight infections in their early stages. The combined effects of
cellular strengthening, collagen synthesis and antioxidant protection are
thought to account for the multi-faceted approach by which vitamin C helps
to maintain health.
