Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a natural water-soluble vitamin and non-enzyme antioxidant. Vitamin C inhibits the production of ammonium nitrate, enhances immune function, resists stress, detoxifies, lowers oxidized lipids and lowers serum cholesterol. As a free radical scavenger, vitamins can exert antioxidant functions, thereby enhancing the body's ability to stress the external environment, enhancing the body's immunity and improving resistance to disease. Vitamin C is also involved in many physiological processes in the human body, such as growth, reproduction, development, wound healing, stress response, etc., and is an essential nutrient for the human body.
It is well known that glutathione
can dilute stubborn stains and has excellent effects on removing wrinkles, increasing skin elasticity, shrinking pores, diminishing pigments, and whitening the body. Vitamin C is also an important antioxidant in the body. Since vitamin C can reversibly hydrogenate or dehydrogenate, vitamin C plays an important role in many redox reactions in the body. For example, the active group of many enzymes is thiol (-SH). Vitamin C maintains -SH in a reduced state while maintaining enzyme activity. Vitamin C can convert oxidized glutathione to reduced glutathione (GSH), which reduces the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) produced by the body's metabolism. Vitamin C also protects vitamins A, E and certain B vitamins from oxidation. Therefore, when glutathione is used, it can be used in combination with vitamin C to improve its efficacy.
