Vitamin C According to Merriam Webster

Historically, we’ve been taught, as Merriam Webster proclaims, that Vitamin C prevents and treats scurvy.  The inference is that if you take just a little bit regularly, scurvy will never be a problem.  Well, that is absolutely true.  Although small doses of Vitamin C alleviate the visible signs of Vitamin C deficiency, like scurvy, it doesn’t address the invisible needs of our bodies that higher doses will solve.
