What is Vitamin C?

In 1769, William Stark, an English physician, conducted an experiment on himself. His diet consisted only of bread and water for an entire month. [1] He then started adding meat and dairy to his diet but still no fruits or vegetables. After eight months, he died of malnutrition, the disease then known as scurvy. [2] Upon further review, Stark’s experiment boiled down to seeing what a diet lacking Vitamin C would do to his body. After eight months of experimenting, he turned from a “healthy 6 foot tall man” into a corpse. The experiment proved that Vitamin C is not an endogenously produced vitamin, thus it must be consumed through one’s diet, or the consequences could be fatal.

Potential Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which may be vital to boosting your immune system. Antioxidant deficiencies may lead to any number of diseases, many of which being chronic. Vitamin C likely encourages the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, both of which fight the growth of infections. [3] Vitamin C may also help to absorb iron, repair body tissues, and keep bone and cartilage healthy. [4] There have been numerous studies on Vitamin C in recent years due to the lengthy list of its potential benefits. [5]
