While most mammals can synthesize vitamin C, humans lack the enzyme required to synthesize vitamin C from glucose and must obtain the vitamin from their diet. The primary function of vitamin C is to help manufacture collagen, the main structural protein of connective tissues in the human body. Still, vitamin C is crucial in variety of biological functions, particularly the immune system, skin, blood vessels, arteries and gums. It is an important antioxidant, providing protection from free radicals and the oxidative stress resulting from normal cellular function. In addition, vitamin C is important in brain health, where it supports neurotransmitter (brain chemical) synthesis, normal stress hormone production and serves as a cofactor for several metabolic enzymes, including hydroxylation reactions that are essential for collagen formation.
