Ascorbic Acid (Vit. C): ingredient of Lastevolution

Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble compound similar to glucose. Although very stable in acidic suspension, is usually the least stable of vitamins and is very sensitive to light, heat and air as they stimulate the activity of oxidative organics.

A peculiar task of vitamin C is to maintain functional collagen which is a protein essential for the composition of the connective tissue of the skin, joints and bones. Vitamin C has an important task in the healing of wounds and burns as it promotes the composition of connective scar.
The cells of the arterial wall using collagen to expand and contract with the Pulsations of the heart and is also necessary for the capillaries that use due to their fragility. Another important feature of the antioxidant vitamin C, which makes it useful as a food preservative.

Ascorbic acid also contributes to the composition of red blood cells and prevents bleeding, defeats the viral infections and limiting the effects of certain substances that trigger allergies.

Vitamin C acts synergistically with other nutrients and participates in the metabolism of various amino acids like phenylalanine and tyrosine, which are hormones. Vitamin C converts the inactive structures of folic acid in active form of folinic acid and can express an important role in the metabolism of calcium and iron.

Also supports the thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid, Pantothenic acid, vitamin A and E from oxidation. Protects the brain and spinal cord from the dangers posed by free radicals. The research on vitamin C as a cancer remedy continuing but there is already evidence concerning the protective effect of vitamin C against certain types of cancer in large sections of the population.
Adrenal glands are abundant concentration of vitamin C allowing the same release of epinephrine and norepinephrine in stressful situations.

Beneficial effects in diseases

Vitamin C facilitates the forma-
tion of bones and teeth in good health
, safeguarding the enamel and the pulp. Limiting negative outcomes on the organism of some substances that cause allergies.

The Oiler fluid joints, synovial fluid, becomes more smoothly when the serum Ascorbic acid levels are consistent and a better range of motion. It’s a nutritional substance of great interest for the treatment of wounds because it favours the process of healing.
Ascorbic acid can reduce the cholesterol content in the blood of patients suffering from arteriosclerosis. Decreases cholesterol level of 35-40% with therapy of vitamin C.

The need for vitamin C increases with age due to a greater need for reformation of collagen. With the passing of years, the sex glands require a more significant amounts of vitamin C and the purchase from other tissues that in this way remain exposed to disease.
It is for this reason that an appropriate integration helps to limit their impoverishment. Vitamin C has provided positive results in cases of male infertility because it was found that increasing the use of zinc, magnesium, copper and potassium which are essential ingredients for a smooth functioning of the seminal fluid.

Functions of vitamin C in the body

Vitamin C is responsible for implementing important activities such as collagen by biosynthesis in transformation of hydroxyproline and proline and lysine into hydroxylysine by Proline hydroxylase and lysine hydroxylase requiring Fe ++ (vitamin C maintains the iron in reduced format).

Encourages the synthesis of the neurotransmitter nor epinephrine from dopamine and in all likelihood of tryptophan into serotonin.
Ascorbic acid promotes the synthesis of carnitine, essential for the passage of fatty acids into mitochondria and catabolism of tyrosine to fumaric acid and acetacetic acid composition using omogentisinic.

Vitamin C promotes the amidation of hormonal peptides such as vasopressin, oxytocin, cholecystokinin, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and liberating the hormone thyrotropin. It also acts on the activation of folic acid in tetrahydrofolic acid (FH4) biologically active in its structure.

The ascorbic acid regulates endogenous histamine levels by limiting the release and supporting their degradation. Promotes the biosynthesis of steroid hormones of the adrenal cortex, when as need increases in hormone, there is a shortage of both cholesterol and vitamin C.
Vitamin C acts on reduction of superoxide ions, hydroxyl radicals, hypochlorous acid and more powerful oxidant, protecting the DNA structure of proteins and membranes from the deterioration that these oxidants are capable of causing.
