Douglas Laboratories C/Lysine Plus
Douglas Laboratories C/Lysine Plus provides significant amounts of Vitamin C and L-Lysine in capsule form.
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 among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chain breaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen.
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.
L-Lysine is required for collagen cross-linking. Collagen cross-linking is important for resiliency and elasticity of the collagen and elastin present in all connective tissues and blood vessel walls.
L-Lysine has also been shown to be effective in supporting the immune system.
