Vitamin C is involved in controlling synthesis of glucocorticoids in the adrenal gland. The protective effect of Vitamin C on health may partially be a result of reducing circulating levels of glucocorticoids (Nickels’, 1990)
Vitamin C reduces adrenal glucocorticoids synthesis, helping to maintain Immuno-competence.
Vitamin C can regenerate the reduced form of alpha Tochopherol.
It can donate and electron to the Tochopherol free radical, regenerating the reduced anti-oxidant form of Tochopherol.
