EL ASHRY Chapter 8, DOI: /bach Publication Date (Print): June 1, F.M. Steinberg, R.B. Rucker, in Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry (Second Edition), Abstract. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an important redox cofactor in plant and animal systems.
Most animals make sufficient ascorbic acid; however, for those that lack the enzyme necessary for synthesis, ascorbic acid is a true vitamin. The addition of ascorbic acid as an antioxidant should be appropriately marked in the list of ingredients on the label of the final product.
Ascorbic acid and its salts are practically insoluble in lipids (fats), for this reason that is often used in the food industry as an antioxidant and preservative greasy foods, in order to avoid rancid.
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.
The predictive utility of the concentration of cholesterol in serum or plasma (Fredrickson and Levy, ) and the identification of many dietary components that can alter these concentrations have been the sources of most interest among nutritionists in the metabolism of cholesterol.
drug metabolism and urinary hydroxyproline excretion. Vitamin C and Cancer Cancer is a global public health problem with increased mortality levels. Though there are many types of cancers, the review presents a general picture of the role of ascorbic acid in cancer.
Vitamin C is effective in protecting against oxidative damage in tissues. ascorbic acid were analyzed by the method of Loeffler and Ponting (). Daily fasting plasma levels of ascorbic acid, using blood samples obtained by fingerprick, were determined for each child by the micro-method of Farmer and Abt ().
With each of the two groups of subjects, three intake levels were tested for one week each. Thus, though ascorbic acid was discovered in 17th century, the exact role of this vitamin/nutraceutical in human biology and health is still a mystery in view of many beneficial claims and. Chemistry of ascorbic acid Structurally, L-AA is one of the simplest vitamins.
It is related to the C6 sugars, being the aldono-1, 4-lactone of a hexonic acid (L-gluonic acid) and contains an enediol group on C2 and C3. The stereo-isomer of L-AA, D-iso-ascorbic acid has little any anti-ascorbutic activity and should not be confused with D. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an abundant component of plants.
It reaches a concentration of over 20 mM in chloroplasts and occurs in all cell compartments, including the cell wall. It has proposed functions in photosynthesis as an enzyme cofactor (including synthesis of ethylene, gibberellins and anthocyanins) and in control of cell growth.
Many enzymes require the binding of certain cofactors or coenzymes to be able to catalyze their reactions. Since enzymes catalyze many important reactions, it is critical to obtain sufficient vitamins and minerals from diet and supplements. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a coenzyme necessary for the action of enzymes that build collagen.
Guinea pigs with a latent, chronic ascorbic acid deficiency were injected with 26‐ 14 C‐cholesterol and the conversion of the labeled chofesterol into bile acids was estimated by following the output of 14 CO 2 for several weeks. Deficient guinea pigs accumulated serum and tissue cholesterol and had a lower output of 14 CO 2 than did the controls.
In addition, the turnover time of the. John J. Jeffrey, G.R. Martin, The role of ascorbic acid in the biosynthesis of collagen I. Ascorbic acid requirement by embryonic chick tibia in tissue culture, Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - General Subjects, /(66),2, (), ().
While most studies relating ascorbic acid to atherosclerosis have used the rabbit as a model, those concerned with elucidating the role of ascorbic acid in the regulation of cholesterol metabolism. The pharmacokinetic characteristics of ascorbic acid have been investigated in normal adult volunteers, using a two-compartment open model.
After oral administration in a normal gelatine capsule the bioavailability of ascorbic acid was 69%. It was 98% when a sustained-release preparation was given in an identical capsule. During daily oral intake of ascorbic acid 1 g in the sustained-release.

THE adrenal glands contain the highest concentration of ascorbic acid of any tissue in the body. Changes in the concentrations of ascorbic acid and cholesterol are related to steroid secretion in. For a healthy, powerful and elegant mixture of our Antioxidant Beauty Blend and Phoenix Immune Booster, try our Cinderella Fusion Hydration that is a ml IV drip ( min.
infusion) and potently supported with an anti-aging and skin refining cocktail of Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Glutathione Antioxidant, and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). Ascorbic acid is one of the important water soluble vitamins. It is essential for collagen, carnitine and neurotransmitters biosynthesis.
Most plants and animals synthesize ascorbic acid for their own requirement. However, apes and humans can not synthesize ascorbic acid due to lack of an enzyme gulonolactone oxidase. Hence, ascorbic acid has to be supplemented mainly through fruits. Ascorbic acid is an organic compound with formula C 6 H 8 O 6, originally called hexuronic is a white solid, but impure samples can appear yellowish.
It dissolves well in water to give mildly acidic solutions. It is a mild reducing agent. Ascorbic acid exists as two enantiomers (mirror-image isomers), commonly denoted "l" (for "levo") and "d" (for "dextro"). The relationship between serum ascorbic acid concentration and prevalence of elevated blood lead levels among youths aged 6 to 16 years (left) adults aged 17 years or older (right) enrolled in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey,based on the multivariate model in Table s are based on 22 youths and 57 adults with elevated blood lead.

Current Estimates from the Health Interview Survey, United States, Vital and Health Statistics. Ser Data from the National Health Survey:DHEW publication (PHS) Ascorbic acid is vitamin C, an antioxidant that’s sometimes used as a dietary supplement or to prevent and treat scurvy (a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C in the body).
