Target

  • RelevanceVitamin C (L ascorbic acid and its reduced form, dehydroascorbic acid) is a water-soluble nutrient and vitamin essential for life and for maintaining optimal health. It's best-defined function is as a cofactor for the enzyme required in the hydroxylation of proline and lysine in collagen formation. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and is used by the body for many purposes. Almost all animals and plants synthesize their own vitamin C, with a few exceptions, such as humans and a small number of other animals, including, apes, guinea pigs, the red-vented bulbul, a fruit-eating bat and a species of trout. No bodily organ stores ascorbate as a primary function, and so the body soon depletes itself of ascorbate if fresh supplies are not consumed through the digestive system, eventually leading to the deficiency disease known as scurvy. There is continuing debate within the scientific community over the amount and frequency of intake of Vitamin C for maintaining optimal health in humans.
