Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid and ascorbate, is a vitamin found in various foods and sold as a dietary supplement. It is used to prevent and treat scurvy. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient involved in the repair of tissue and the enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters. It is required for the functioning of several enzymes and is important for immune system ncy category: A (to RDA), C (above RDA). Ascorbic acid (AsA), vitamin C, is one of the most abundant water-soluble antioxidant in plants and animals. In plants AsA serves as a major redox buffer and regulates various physiological processes controlling growth, development, and stress tolerance. Recent studies on AsA homeostasis have broadened our understanding of these physiological.

  In the early s, ascorbic acid was isolated and identified as the nutrient that prevented scurvy. Humans, it was discovered, are among the few animals that cannot manufacture vitamin C in their own bodies, and must obtain it from an outside source (fresh fruits, vegetables, or vitamin C pills) on a regular basis in order to avoid illness.   Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) has important antioxidant and metabolic functions in both plants and animals, but humans, and a few other animal species, have lost the capacity to Cited by:

FORMS OF THE VITAMIN Vitamin Ascorbic acid in domestic animals book is available as ascorbic acid, ascorbate sulphate, ascorbyl palmitate, and sodium ascorbate. However, for most animals requiring a dietary source of the vitamin, only ascorbic acid (see Figure 9 for reduced and oxidized forms) has significant antiscorbutic prop.

Vitamin C (VC) is the generic term for all compounds showing the biological activity of ascorbic acid (AsA). The majority of VC exists as AsA in the bodies of animals, and AsA can be reversibly oxidized to dehydroascorbic acid (DAsA) (McDowell, ).Cited by: 9.

Ascorbic Acid. Humans, unlike many other animals, are unable to synthesise (make) ascorbic acid. It must, therefore, be obtained from the diet.

Inadequate dietary intake results in scurvy, a potentially fatal disease. As little as 10 mg/day of vitamin C is sufficient to prevent overt scurvy. A STUDY OF ASCORBIC ACID SYNTHESIS BY ANIMAL TISSUE IN VITRO* BY C.

SMYTHE AND C. KING (From the Department of Chemistry, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh) (Received for publication, November 7, ) It is well known that the tissues of albino rats, without an.

Ascorbic acid is synthesised by almost all higher plant species whereas animals having capacity to oxidize L-gulono-1,4-lactone only can synthesize ascorbic acid. Three different biosynthetic pathways have been proposed for ascorbic acid synthesis in plants. The ascorbic acid content of the blood plasma, liver and spleen was determined by the method of Birch et al.

(Abst.Vol. 3) in certain diseased animals and in normal controls receiving the same type of ration. Hill bulls with rinderpest and blackquarter, and ponies with holminthiasis had values significantly lower than those of normal animals, but low values were not observed in a number Author: S.

Ray. It is known that animals generally do not require vitamin C in their diets. Almost all mammals, and virtually all animals, synthesize ascorbic acid in the liver or kidney. While most animals synthesize ascorbic acid, there is no scientific evidence that any animal synthesizes the ill.

Ascorbic acid is widely distributed throughout the tissues, both in animals capable of synthesizing vitamin C as well as in those dependent on an adequate dietary amount of the vitamin.

In experimental animals, highest concentrations of vitamin C are found in the pituitary and adrenal glands, and high levels are also found in the liver, spleen. Extremely limited evidence suggests that ascorbic acid could be beneficial in animal models of coronavirus (Atherton ).

Administration of a moderate dose of IV vitamin C could be considered (e.g. grams IV q6 ascorbic acid plus mg thiamine IV q12). This dose seems to be safe. Robert B. Rucker, Andrea J. Fascetti, in Clinical Biochemistry of Domestic Animals (Sixth Edition), b Chemistry.

Ascorbic acid is of general importance as an antioxidant, because of its high reducing potential. However, under some conditions ascorbic acid can also act as a prooxidant. Some question whether ascorbic acid is an essential requirement for these species. The need for ascorbic acid may be very small for these species therefore they may supplement via their diet to maintain the proper levels of ascorbic acid.

Although they can produce some vitamin C, domestic dogs and cats make much less than wild animals. This may explain why pets eventually suffer from the. Vitamin C or ascorbic acid (AsA) is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties, found in both animals and plants.

It functions as a redox buffer which can reduce, and thereby neutralize, reactive oxygen species. It is a cofactor for enzymes involved in regulating photosynthesis, hormone biosynthesis, and regenerating other antioxidants; which also regulates cell Cited by: 4.

This article discusses the role of nutrition in animal reproduction, with emphasis on the adverse effects of nutritional deficiencies (protein deficiency, vitamin A, B, B-complex, C, D and E deficiencies, and phosphorus, calcium, manganese, cobalt, copper, iron, iodine, Cited by: 4.

Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble antioxidant vitamin, non-toxic, sustainable and readily metabolized by the body of most domestic animals and humans (Hickey et al.

Fourteen essential vitamins are discussed with information on requirements in various species, deficiency symptoms, metabolism.

Ascorbic acid is often used but if your pet has a sensitive digestive system, you may wish to use a buffered vitamin C which is easier to digest. Dosage will vary based on the animals' weight. Always start with a low dose and work up to the maximum dose over the course of weeks. Methionine: Also an acidifying agent for the urine.

In addition, vitamin C potentiated the antidepressant effects of antidepressants in animals [ 10 ].
