Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) Tablets 500mg (TGP AM-EURO) – 100

Vitamin C is an important nutrient that your body needs in order to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle, and collagen in your bones. Our bodies also need vitamin C to aid in the healing process. It also helps absorb and store iron.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects our cells against the harmful effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced when our body breaks down food, or from exposure to external sources such as when we inhale tobacco smoke, radiation from the sun, X-rays, chemicals, or other sources. 

Because the body cannot naturally produce vitamin C on its own, we must get it from citrus fruits like calamansi and oranges, and supplements such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C) tablets.

Mechanism of Action

In humans, an exogenous source of ascorbic acid is required for collagen formation and tissue repair by acting as a cofactor in the posttranslational formation of 4-hydroxyproline in Xaa-Pro-Gly sequences in collagens and other proteins. Ascorbic acid is reversibly oxidized to dehydroascorbic acid in the body. These two forms of the vitamin are believed to be important in oxidation-reduction reactions. The vitamin is involved in tyrosine metabolism, conversion of folic acid to folinic acid, carbohydrate metabolism, synthesis of lipids and proteins, iron metabolism, resistance to infections, and cellular respiration.
