Douglas Ascorbplex 1000 Buffered is a high potency vitamin C supplement specially buffered with calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which help to minimize stomach irritation associated with the acidity of many vitamin C preparations. Ascorbplex 1000 Buffered also contains bioflavonoids, which have been shown to increase the bioavailability of vitamin C in supplemental form compared to vitamin C taken alone.
Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans. Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that can react directly with superoxide and hydroxyl radicals to decrease potential damage to cells within the body. In addition, vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid, and can regenerate the antioxidant potential of vitamin E. Vitamin C helps in the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth, and gums. In bone, Vitamin C helps form collagen in the bone matrix while scavenging free radicals that can be detrimental to bones. Vitamin C supplementation has been associated with increased bone mineral density and lower fracture probabilities in adults.
Vitamin C is also essential in the formation of connective tissue and aids in wound healing by decreasing proinflammatory responses and medicating proliferative and remodeling stages in the healing process.
