Hello folks, Today I show you how a single nutrient could change the face of healthcare, forever. Coming up… For human beings, vitamin C (known in its synthetic form as “L-ascorbic acid”, or C6H8O6) is a water-soluble essential nutrient. “Essential” means our bodies do not synthesize it internally, so we need to obtain it from our food and through supplements. Humans, great apes, many other primates, guinea pigs and some species of fruit bats and a handful of other obscure species, are the only animals on Earth that are not capable of producing their own vitamin C internally. in their livers This is likely due to a genetic mutation that occurred far back in our distant prehistoric past that stunted our ability to synthesize the gulonolactone oxidase enzyme. Most animals in the wild typically make a human equivalent of around 4000 to 12,000 mg of vitamin C per day internally when healthy and can produce up to 100,000 mg per day if under physical, chemical or emotional stress.
