DESCRIPTION
Orange-Chew™ 500mg chewable tablets from Douglas Laboratories contain vitamin C buffered with ascorbate
and flavored with natural orange and fructose.
FUNCTIONS
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of
collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin,
blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of
enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers - lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases. As such,
vitamin C is essential for normal wound healing and capillary health. It also participates in the biosynthesis of
carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine.
Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chainbreaking
antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory
studies show that vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) against
atherogenic peroxidative damage. In addition, vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid, and
regenerates vitamin E. The antioxidant functions of vitamin C appear to have clinical significance in providing
protection from free radical damage to the eyes, lungs, blood and the immune system.
Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine by a sodium-dependent transport process that is intake dependent.
At normal dietary intakes of 60 to 100 mg, up to 80 or 90% of the vitamin C is absorbed. At higher intakes,
absorption becomes less efficient. Absorption efficiency and vitamin C utilization may be greatly enhanced
during conditions of physiological stress, such as trauma or infection. Maximal absorption is attained by the
ingestion of several doses spaced throughout the day rather than in one, larger dose.
INDICATIONS
Orange-Chew™ 500mg may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily intake of
this important antioxidant vitamin in a pleasant tasting chewable form.
