One such example of oxidation can be found in apples.
When you take a bite of an apple and you leave it sitting on your kitchen counter for as little as 30 minutes, the inside of the apple will start to oxidize and turn brown.

The parts of the cells damaged are DNA, lipids and proteins that make up the cells.
This slows down the production of collagen and elastin, which is essential in keeping the skin firm and preventing wrinkling.
A coupling of the hexosemonophosphate (HMP) shunt via the pyridine nucleotide, NADPH, to DHA has been demonstrated.
The suggestion is made that the rate of ASC oxidation in vivo is probably adequate to reoxidize a significant fraction of the NADPH generated by the shunt.
It can be oxidized by one electron to a radical state or doubly oxidized to the stable form called dehydroascorbic acid.The oxidation product, dehydroascorbic acid, then goes on to form other products by hydrolysis.The change in enthalpy associated with the oxidation reaction was determined as - 130.9 k J mol(-1) and the reaction has a first order rate constant, with respect to the oxygen concentration, of 1.8 x 10(-4) s(-1).For example, the site cannot determine your email name unless you choose to type it.Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.Let me first talk about how vitamin C works and how it’s beneficial to your skin.
