Incredibly, by 1937, Szent-Gyögyi had deduced that the vitamin C complex (not just vitamin C) neutralizes the oxygen free radical (a term not yet invented!) in two stages:Ascorbic acid oxidase oxidizes [ascorbic] acid with oxygen to reversible dehydro-ascorbic acid, whereby the oxygen unites with the two labile H-atoms from the acid to form hydrogen peroxide. This peroxide reacts with peroxidase and oxidizes a second molecule of ascorbic acid. Both these molecules of dehydro-ascorbic acid again take up hydrogen from the foodstuff .
But peroxidase does not oxidize ascorbic acid directly. I succeeded in showing that another substance is interposed between the two, which belongs to the large group of yellow, water-soluble Y plant dyes (flavone, flavonol, flavanone). Here the peroxidase oxidizes [the flavon, the bioflavonoid] which then oxidizes the ascorbic acid directly, taking up both its H-atoms. (ibid)

Dr. Paul Wand wrote:Our direct observation, based on carotid ultrasound testing, show that very high vitamin C supplement users have remarkably healthy carotid arteries. When adjusted for other factors such as age, elevated homocysteine, LDL cholesterol and glucose, these very high vitamin C takers as a group appear to have less carotid pathology than the general population. A review of previously published findings indicates that consuming a wide variety of very high potency dietary supplements, combined with blood screening to monitor cholesterol, homocysteine, glucose, iron and other atherogenic risk factors, confers a significant protective effect against the development of carotid artery disease.
