Natural C Plus 500 tablets from Douglas Laboratories

provides 500 mg of Vitamin C with rose hips and an

additional amount of bioflavonoid complex.

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. It also 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 lipoprotein

(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

sodium-dependent transport process that is intake

dependent. At normal dietary intakes of 60 to 100

mg, up to 80 or 90% of the vitamin C is absorbed. 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.

Bioflavonoids (also called flavonoids) are a class of

phytochemicals that are potent antioxidants, which

scavenge many potentially damaging free radicals.

The bitter tasting flavanones hesperidin and naringin, from the white albedo layer of citrus peels, have been

shown to extend the nutritional functions of vitamin C.

Bioflavonoids such as rutin can also support the

health of the body’s circulatory system by helping

maintain capillary blood flow and proper vascular

permeability, integrity, and resiliency.
