TO KNOW MORE
What is the activity of vitamin C?
Vitamin C has got a direct antioxidant capacity and contributes to protecting cells from the harmful effects of oxidative free radicals, for example during immunological activation or when our skin is exposed solar radiation. The human body actually counts on layers of fatty acids, especially skin and intestinal or lung epithelium, which are susceptible to oxidation. Vitamin C is involved in the maintenance of these structures.
Vitamin C is highly concentrated in immune cells like white blood cells and in skin cells.
In immune cells (for example white blood cells) its concentration is 50 to 100 times higher than that in blood, and this fact entails a relevant role in maintaining phagocytosis and the regulation of oxidation to face possible aggressive agents.
What is the activity of the mineral Zinc?
Zinc has got essential structural, regulating or catalytic functions in many enzymes. This mineral maintains the configuration of several proteins such as insulin and thymulin (of an immunological nature). It facilitates binding hormones to tissues or organs where they will carry out their activity and can maintain the integrity of biomembranes. Accordingly, Zinc takes part in the mechanisms and control of the main metabolic pathways involving proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and lipids.
