Mechanism of Action
Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, is required for the body to form collagen and repair tissue. Ascorbic acid acts as a cofactor in the post-translational formation of 4-hydroxyprolin in -Xaa-Pro-Gly- sequences in proteins such as collagen.
Vitamin C is also used in tyrosine metabolism, conversion of folic acid to folinic acid, carbohydrate metabolism, synthesis of lipids and proteins, iron metabolism, immunity building, and cellular respiration.
