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.
