Eigenschaften

Power for the immune system

Vitamin C contributes to a normal functioning of the immune system and nervous system. 3

In addition, a vitamin C deficiency impairs immune responses, particularly chemotaxis, complement activation and interferon production. 4 Ascorbic acid improves the absorption of iron salts by reducing iron(III) ions and by forming iron chelates.

The antioxidant functions of vitamin C lead to biochemical interactions closely related to those of vitamin E, vitamin A and carotenoids. 3

Valuable antioxidant

Vitamin C is essential for human life.4

It helps protect cells from oxidative stress, as its components, ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid, form an important redox system. 3,4

Vitamin C also contributes to the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E. 3,4

Due to its redox potential (antioxidative effect), vitamin C acts as a cofactor in numerous enzyme systems (collagen formation, catecholamine synthesis, hydroxylation of steroids, tyrosine and exogenous substances, biosynthesis of carnitine, regeneration of tetrahydrofolic acid and alpha-amidation of peptides, e.g. ACTH and gastrin).4

It thus contributes to normal collagen formation, for a normal functioning of the teeth, gums, skin and cartilage. 3
