Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is essential for normal growth and development, used in the growth and repair of tissues of the human body. Notably, vitamin C helps the body to synthesize normal, mature collagen, a protein that provides the structural framework for skin, cartilage, blood vessels, and other connective tissue. Vitamin C is also involved in healing wounds; and repairing, and maintaining bones and teeth. It is one of many antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals. The buildup of free radicals maybe be responsible for the aging process and many chronic, degenerative diseases. Vitamin C can also strengthen the immune system.
For those who are iron deficient, consuming vitamin C at the same time as non-heme (plant-sourced) iron will help its uptake. It can even reverse the inhibiting effect of such substances as tea, and calcium/phosphate. Ascorbic acid (vit. C) binds to the iron at an acidic pH, allowing it to remain soluble in the high (basic) pH of the upper small intestine, where nutrients are absorbed.(3) This is especially important for those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.
The body cannot make or store vitamin C, therefore it is important to include vitamin C in your daily diet.(1) Transport C-PLUS™ is a patented formulation of buffered vitamin C specifically designed to enhance the ascorbic acid (vit. C) transport and absorption in the body. It has been clinically shown to increase the amount of ascorbic acid taken up by the immune system’s T-cells, and enhance its antioxidant activity. TransportC-PLUS™ diminished the oxidative stress that breaks down virgin vitamin C so quickly during human consumption thus providing quicker utilization and storage of the vitamin C in key storage cells.

Transport C-PLUS™ is a patented formula of ascorbic acid, buffered calcium ascorbate, and alpha-lipoic acid, which enhances vitamin C transport and absorption in the body with scientific evidence of performance & bio-availability.
Vitamin C’s skin health benefit is largely due to its role in the synthesis of normal mature collagen network.(3) Collagen is a structural support protein that provides framework for the skin, essential a for firm and youthful appearance. Collagen in the skin tends to decline with age due to factors like sunlight, smoking, free radicals, and inflammation. Supplying the body with vitamin C is one of the most effective ways to boost collagen synthesis.(4)
Vitamin C is not only necessary for collagen production and maintenance, but it is also a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals in the skin. The buildup of free radicals can be responsible for the aging processes in humans. Free radicals steal electrons from one of the proteins in a strand of collagen, causing a change in the chemical structure creating tiny breaks in the strand. As a result, the skin sags and wrinkles.(5) Vitamin C is an electron donor and therefore an excellent free radical scavenger.(2) A clinical study investigated the effects of vitamin C on UVB induced epidermal damage. The intake significantly reduced sunburn reaction and also provided antioxidant protection of DNA in skin cells.(6)
