Although in horses vitamin C is produced in the liver, optimum health during periods of stress, intensive exercise, illness or injury may require more vitamin C than the body can produce. Vitamin C, sometimes called the “workhorse of the vitamins”, is required in hundreds of metabolic processes. Vita Flex Pure C™ contains only premium grade, very palatable pure ascorbic acid, for maximum flexibility and value. Pure C is the most economical, most effective way to enhance horses' diets with the benefits of vitamin C.
The horse's body needs vitamin C to grow, maintain, and repair structural tissues. The first vitamin to be chemically isolated, vitamin C was originally noted for its ability to prevent scurvy, a disease marked by the breakdown of circulatory and connective tissue. More recent research has shown the need for vitamin C in producing specific proteins, such as collagen, and other structural elements of connective tissue. Because of this connection, many studies have focused on the impact of vitamin C on healing rates, bone modeling, blood vessel integrity, and tooth formation.
Vitamin C is also an important “helper” nutrient, assisting in the absorption of iron and calcium, the formation of folic acid, and the metabolism of the amino acids tyrosine and tryptophan. Vitamin C also enhances the activity of bioflavonoids (hesperidin, quercetin, rutin, etc.), plant products that have been studied for their role in maintaining capillary integrity and scavenging free radicals.
The optimum long-term health of the horse rests upon a strong defense, against both external and internal threats. Vitamin C has long been noted for its support of the immune system. Current research is looking at the impact of vitamin C on the incidence and progress of viral infections. Also a potent antioxidant nutrient, vitamin C eliminates damaging free radicals produced within the body during oxidation and inflammation. Even the basis of the “macro defense system”, the adrenal gland, depends on vitamin C to maintain reserve capacity and healthy balance in stressful situations.
