From the research that I have done, I know that antioxidants such as vitamin c donate electrons to oxygen free radicals and effectively neutralize them. They themselves do not become free radicals as they are stable in both forms.
So, would it be correct to say that after the vitamin C is oxidized(giving electrons to free radicals) so much that it can no longer give any more electrons(not sure what the actual limit is):
- What happens to vitamin C (does it get broken down and therefore decrease)
- Is it any useful in destroying free radicals?
