Introduction
 

L-ascorbic acid or as known as vitamin C is an essential water-soluble nutrient that cannot be manufactured by our body. Most of us are well acknowledged that vitamin C is functioning as an immune system booster. However, not many of us realize that vitamin C could also help to accelerate wound healing. In fact, the role of vitamin C in wound healing has been published in medical literature since 1937.

The mechanism of wound healing includes vitamin C as the co-factor in proline and lysine hydroxylation, a necessary step in the formation of collagen, the most abundant protein in our body. As a result, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine stabilize the triple helix structure of collagen with strong hydrogen bonds and crosslinks. Without this stabilization, the collagen structure will disintegrate rapidly. Besides, vitamin C provides tensile structure to the newly built collagen to prevent it from tearing when stretched.

Other than that, vitamin C enhances neutrophil function, increases the development of new blood vessels, and serves as a powerful antioxidant. The needs of vitamin C increase especially during stress or injury. For instance, during wound healing process, excess free radicals would be produced. As an antioxidant, vitamin C will assist to neutralize free radicals, prevent further cell damage, and promote wound healing.

However, wounds heal more slowly in diabetics due high blood glucose level, neuropathy, poor circulation, and weak immune system, which thereby affects the body’s ability to heal wounds. Hence, it is very important for them to consume sufficient amount of vitamin C from diet or supplement continuously because vitamin C could not be stored in the body and need to be replenished every day.

Typically, fruits are restricted in diabetics’ diet. Therefore, those diabetics can consider taking vitamin C supplementation as an alternative.
