In brief: None. May hurt.

Vitamin c (ascorbic acid) is one of the most overused supplements for many reasons.
Few people need mega-doses, which interestly block the effect of choleterol lowering drugs (statins), along with high dose vitamin e. Both in large doses are associated with increased all-cause mortality!
