Douglas Labs Ascorbplex 1000 90t contains 100% pure, corn-free Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), specially buffered with calcium, magnesium, and potassium, with additional pectin and bioflavonoid complex. Ascorbplex 1,000 (Buffered) 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 preparations. 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 norepinephrine. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chainbreaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory studies show that Vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage. In addition, Vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alphalipoic 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.
