Like every natural phenomenon, vitamin C has a good and a bad side; consequently, high doses do good and bad things simultaneously in our bodies.
So to make a better vitamin, first we must remove the negatives of the vitamin. Then we must strengthen the positives. We can only tease out slight improvements at a time because nature is dialectical to the core of its core. But even a mere 5% improvement per year in functionality of just this one vitamin would be a 13,150% improvement in just a century. The incredible power of compounding.
