Vitamin C is one of the most important water-soluble antioxidant nutrients and is involved in a wide variety of biochemical reactions throughout the body. Humans, unlike most other mammals, cannot manufacture vitamin C, so we must rely on food or nutritional supplements. Vitamin C is stored in tissues throughout the body and is especially concentrated in the adrenal glands, where it is crucial for the production of adrenal hormones involved in responding to stress. The body uses vitamin C in immune system functions including white blood cell production, histamine release and degradation, the reduction of glutathione, and the metabolism and protection of several other nutrients. Vitamin C is involved in detoxifying heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and nickel. It is involved in the production of collagen and elastin, important connective tissue proteins. Vitamin C may also support HDL cholesterol within normal levels, and bone mineral density.
