Kira and Bill Van Ittersum call Vitamin C the KING of vitamins because of all the processes that it facilitates in the body. The United States Food and Drug Administration have set a very low dose for daily intake of vitamin C. Many scientists and researchers claim that a daily dose this low is barely enough to keep the effects of scurvy away—that many people with a daily intake this low are actually in a “pre-scurvy” condition. So, how much vitamin C do we need daily to be optimally healthy?
Bill and Kira discuss the current research findings and share their own experiences with daily vitamin C supplementation to their diet. Along the way, they relate many interesting and informative stories about vitamin C and how a lack of it, at times, has affected our ancestors throughout history.
