Super C capsules contain a non-acidic, calcium ascorbate form of Vitamin C combined with potent antioxidants to support the healthy functioning of the entire body.
Super C is a unique form of Vitamin C that is created through a patented, water based process that combines Vitamin C and calcium. Super C is non-acidic and should be well-tolerated by those who are sensitive to the acidic nature of ascorbic acid.
- Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. 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 other neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine.
- Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chain-breaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory studies show that Super C (Vitamin C) completely protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) against peroxidative damage. In addition, Vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alphalipoic acid, and regenerates Vitamin E.
