Vitamin C, unlike other vitamins, cannot be made by the human body. Most animals can make it by a simple conversion of glucose, but somewhere along the evolutionary track, the human body lost the enzyme that makes this possible. Animals make large amounts to help them stay healthy— often 100 mg or more per kilo of body weight (the equivalent of over 7 grams for an average 75 kg adult). Vitamin C is a main component of collagen, the most abundant protein in the body (up to 35% of the body’s protein is collagen)*.
