Vitamin C Crystals
Vitamin C Crystals, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contains 100% pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in a powder.
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 Crystals may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily intake of this important antioxidant vitamin.
