Everyone knows that you can get vitamin C from an orange, but did you know that a yellow bell pepper contains 5 times more? Did you know that nearly all animals on the planet make their own vitamin C, but us humans are one of the few species that don’t? And how about this: a goat makes around 10 to 15 grams of Vitamin C per day, but when it’s ill, a sick goat can produce up to 100 grams of Vitamin C a day to self-medicate!
