Is it true that Vitamin C is the most important micronutrient?

Is it true that Vitamin C is the most important micronutrient?
I mean if you eat whole foods, and are consistently hitting macros, and are eating all sorts of varieties including fruits, sea food, meat, dairy, eggs, etc... it doesn't really matter what micros you hit, as long as protein, fat, carbs and Vitamin C is in check.

    I dunno if true but I have had nurse tell me vitamin C helps with protein absorption so I take 2 vitamin C pills a day just in case.

      Vitamin c is necessary for collagen formation. In all the studies I've seen of collagen supplementation effect on connective tissue, they always supplement with vitamin c as well. Not sure if it's necessary for muscle building, but muscles are bound by and dependent on connective tissue. 1/3 of the body's protein is collagen. I try to get some source of vitamin c in every meal, some strawberries, leafy greens, bell pepper, etc.

    I'd say yes. Every time I feel week or just starting to get sick, I consume 1/2 of a vit C lethal dose and I recover almost instantly.

      I also read you can't really overdose on Vitamin C. Any excess that the body doesn't use, you piss it away but it's unlikely because almost every important process in your body uses vitamin C

      I dunno if true but I have had nurse tell me vitamin C helps with protein absorption so I take 2 vitamin C pills a day just in case.

      And Vitamin V is vital in Vitamin D metabolisation

        I believe so. I just don't try to set a world record or die alone in my apartment. But yeah I've never experienced any side effects, it just makes me feel great that's all.

    Are you even supposed to have vitamin c in the winter? If the modern industrial world didn't exist where would you even get a source of vitamin c from if you live in a place that's not temperate year round. Somewhere like most of Europe. Everything's dead in the winter where are you getting fruits from?

      You’re dumb as shit. Pine trees and other roots and trees have tons of vit c. You boil them to make tea or even beer and ciders. Settlers in the USA did it, so did natives.

    Vitamin C is important because it improves absorption of all the other nutrients.

    Its been known that vitamin C is supposed to help with immune system but it helps the most with maintaining connective tissue. Keeps your skin elastic and keeps you looking young.
