Vitamin C is the most consumed vitamin in the world. It is not only essential in building a strong immune system – its role as the chief water-soluble antioxidant in the human body adds many more benefits. Recent studies are now linking Vitamin C in slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss.
Most of us are not getting the vitamin C dosage we need for good health. This is because illness, trauma, stress, and injury all use up large quantities of vitamin C in animals, including us humans. But the main difference between us and other animals is that we’ve lost the ability to make our own vitamin C.
