Vitamin C:

Vitamin C, known as ascorbic acid, is not produced by the human body and must therefore be obtained through your diet.  Two major functions of vitamin C are as an antioxidant and as an enzyme cofactor, whereby it readily donates electrons to recipient molecules in an oxidation-reduction process (redox).

During normal metabolic processes and through exposure to toxins and pollutants, free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are generated.  Small amounts of vitamin C can protect essential molecules in the body such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage caused by these free radicals.
