Vitamin C Crucial to Collagen Synthesis

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22698725
The effect of growth factors on both collagen synthesis and tensile strength of engineered human ligaments.

The predicted optimal growth media (50 μg/ml TGFβ, IGF-1, and GDF-7 and 200 μm ascorbic acid) was then validated in two separate trials: showing a 5.7-fold greater MTL and 5.2-fold more collagen than a minimal media.
