According to pubmed.com, Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Moreover it supports epithelial barrier function against pathogens and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin, thereby potentially protecting against environmental oxidative stress.
“Vitamin C accumulates in phagocytic cells, such as neutrophils, and can enhance chemotaxis, phagocytosis, generation of reactive oxygen species, and ultimately microbial killing”.Pubmed.com
