Description

Vitamin C is a key compound in the body’s “antioxidant network ” a chain of synergistic inextricability linked well studied antioxidants that includes glutathione (GSH) and vitamin E. When vitamin E uses its antioxidant function in neutralizing free radicals it also loses this antioxidant function. Vitamin C can change this status; it can regenerate vitamin E back to its native form and is thought to “spare” glutathione in the body as well. Importantly when ascorbate donates an electron and becomes itself oxidized or “consumed ” the ascorbate radical is relatively harmless. In a double blind placebo controlled study in which blood GSH was measured in healthy subjects at several stages 500 mg of vitamin C taken daily for 2 weeks significantly raised erythrocyte (red blood cell) glutathione levels. The researchers concluded that vitamin C supplementation at that level can benefit the overall antioxidant capacity of the blood. In another study of similar design 1000 mg of vitamin C taken daily for 4 weeks bolstered vitamin E and glutathione content in erythrocyte cell membranes compared with placebo. The highest concentrations of vitamin C in the body are found in the central nervous system (in neurons of the brain & spinal cord) and the adrenal glands. Although the presence of ascorbate in neurons is in part explained by its neuromodulatory enzyme activity its high concentration suggests that vitamin C is so greatly retained by neurons in order to address the higher rates of oxidative metabolism experienced by the brain. This has led to the conclusion that under normal conditions vitamin C helps safeguard the integrity of neurons (and therefore the brain) largely through neutralization of the free radicals of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Low levels of blood vitamin C and the resulting accumulation of ROS are thought to be detrimental—especially to aging populations.
