What is XYMOGEN Xcellent C?
XYMOGEN Xcellent C is a high-potency vitamin C formula with the addition of 7.5 mg of BioPerine® per capsule. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential to humans and must be obtained exogenously. While most mammals are able to synthesize vitamin C, humans are unable to. This is because humans lack one of the enzymes required to synthesize vitamin C from glucose. Stress, smoking, pollution, radiation and heavy metal exposure, immune challenge, and temperature change all increase the human requirement for vitamin C. Well-known functions of this versatile vitamin include antioxidant protection from free radicals and oxidative processes; synthesis of collagen, carnitine, and neurotransmitters; and immune stimulation and support. Vitamin C functions as a cofactor for several metabolic enzymes and is involved in protein metabolism. It also plays a lesser-known role in the deactivation of histamine.
Collagen is a fundamental component of bone, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C’s role in collagen formation makes it vital to maintaining skin, capillary, gum, joint, and skeletal health. Vitamin C’s role in promoting and maintaining collagen, and consequently skin integrity, was recognized as early as the 1930s in published surgical journals.
Ascorbate, the reduced form of vitamin C (the form found in Xcellent C™), is a generous donor of electrons, allowing it to counteract oxidative free radicals. This property makes ascorbate an ideal antioxidant that can protect cells and tissues as well as regenerate other antioxidants. Recognizing the importance of vitamin C as a protective antioxidant, the Institute of Medicine, an independent and non-profit organization that provides advice on health and science to decision makers and the public, recommended increasing vitamin C requirements for smokers due to their exposure to toxins and oxidative elements in cigarette smoke. Additionally, vitamin C is able to limit the formation of carcinogens, such as nitrosamines.
