Discovery of vitamin C
One of the most serious threats to mariners in ancient times was the increasing weakening of their blood vessels. This had various internal and external bleeding effects, eventually leading to death due to severe blood loss. Nobody knew what the cause of this terrible disease was, that from the 16th to the 18th century took the lives of tens of thousands of sailors.

That lasted until the Scottish physicist James Lind (1716-1794) with a simple experiment proved that bleeding and bleeding can be prevented by giving. Mariner’s sufficient lime and lemon juice Through his successful search for a natural way to prevent scurvy in sailors and heal, he saved thousands of lives.

Today of course we know that the vitamin C present in fresh fruit is responsible for optimal production of collagen and connective tissue and optimum durability of the vessel walls. When Lind made his discovery, it was no one to the precise operation. The main thing was that it helped.

Surprising is the fact that the British Admiralty took to bring the discoveries of James Lind in practice and giving.

British sailors limes over 40 years The old dogmas about the secrets of scurvy apparently opposed four decades before they were finally abolished. During these 40 years, thousands of British sailors died an unnecessary death, because the Admiralty clung to outdated dogmas.
