Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is an essential water-soluble vitamin required for various biological and physiological processes of the body. Most plants and animals synthesise ascorbic acid for their own requirement. However, human is unable to synthesise vitamin c, it must be solely obtained from the diet, mainly through fruits and vegetables to maintain a normal metabolic functioning of the body.
- Water-soluble vitamin important for collagen formation, a protein that gives structure to bones, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels.
- Powerful antioxidant because it can donate a hydrogen atom and form a relatively stable ascorbyl free radical.
- Contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of immune system.
Oral vitamin C is absorbed for approximately 70-90% at moderate intake (30-180 mg day), but absorption rate falls below 50% at intake above 1000 mg day. Excessive vitamin C intake that is not metabolised is excreted mainly in the urine, and to a lesser extent in the faeces.
