Here’s some great info about Vitamin C that you may not have known about.
Most animals are able to synthesize vitamin C. However, primates (including humans), guinea pigs, and bats have lost this ability through the course of evolution and depend on dietary sources of the vitamin. Because vitamin C is water-soluble and unable to get stored in the body’s fat tissue, our vitamin C deposits are limited. Therefore, we need to consume the vitamin on a regular basis, not least to maintain our energy levels and support the brain and its functions.
