Do this, since they are deficient in the enzyme gulonolactone oxidase, which is involved in AA synthesis [22]. Vitamin C is therefore an ‘essen­ tial’ vitamin and must be introduced with fresh vegetables and fruits. At a physiological level, AA is involved in several metabolic processes: corticosteroid hormones, biliary acids, carnitine, prostaglandins, histamine, collagen, iron, thyro­ xine, and some neurotransmitters. Vitamin C also improves the immune response and favors the elimination of xenobiotics and radicals.

Similarly, polymorphisms are also being identified in the systems that regulate the metabolism of both xenobiotics and essential and nonessential nutrients in plant-derived foods [47]. Functional polymorphisms in affected genes will need to be used to identify cohorts that can be pre­ dicted to be responsive or nonresponsive to a particular class(es) of plant secondary metabo­ lites [44,48–53]. While complex, the opportu­ nities for new insights will grow with the availability of an increasing number of high dimensional datasets that are derived from genomic, proteomic and metabolic analyses of human tissues and body fluids as well as the metabolomic profiles of plant foods and of the microbiome that is likely to have a profound yet unappreciated impact on both the com­ pounds absorbed from the gut and the activity of key metabolic processes within the mamma­ lian system [54–57].
