Cee Cee, a shining example of vitamin C health.

C-fit GOAT meet Cee cee

As you can see from the smile, Cee Cee is a happy goat. And does Cee Cee even lift?  You bet Cee Cee does.  A lot.  And lives a long and healthy life as a result.  Which is why Cee Cee is the G.O.A.T.  The Greatest of All Time.

But what makes Cee Cee really happy?  Vitamin C.  It is because Cee Cee knows that goats make more vitamin C inside their own bodies than almost any other animal in the world.

A typical 155 pound goat is capable of producing over 13,000 milligrams of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) daily. More when under stress, such as when they are ill or injured.

As a comparison, humans produce no vitamin C on their own and the recommended dietary allowance for humans of vitamin C proposed and used by nutritionists, is 90 milligrams.  That is over a 13,000% difference.  And goats, like most wild animals, rarely if ever suffer from heart disease and other typical human maladies.  For example with heart disease, it is because goats like Cee Cee produce large amounts of vitamin C, (which optimizes collagen production and ensures maximum stability of their artery walls), that prevents this horrible affliction.



The true cause of heart disease in humans is a deficiency of vitamin C and other essential nutrients in the cells composing the heart and coronary arteries – not high cholesterol as is so commonly believed. Once the artery wall is weakened by this vitamin deficiency, the body responds by producing excess cholesterol in the liver and depositing it in the injured artery. It acts almost like a dam blocking a river.  If this process continues without nutritional intervention, the buildup of fats in the arteries will eventually lead to atherosclerosis, the cause of heart attacks.


Cee Cee’s vitamin C production and stress

The ability to synthesize vitamin C was somehow linked through evolutionary development.  This would explain why under stress goats like Cee Cee are able to produce a higher level of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) than when unstressed. As a biological defense mechanism, during times of stress, ascorbic acid would be created in massive amounts. The beneficial effect of ascorbic acid in stress is now a well-established fact. When facing significant health stresses, C-making animals can dramatically increase ascorbic acid production by as much as 13 times normal levels. This could explain why wild animals tend to remain vibrantly healthy until they succumb to old age as shown in countless studies.

Despite all this evidence, the recommended dietary allowance for humans remains extremely low. But when looking at Cee Cee and other animals, it really illustrates the need for humans to supplement vitamin C in high doses. Is it possible that nature knows something the government doesn’t?  Think of the stress you are under when lifting weights.  When ill.  When going through the daily pressures of everyday life.  Your body is constantly being bombarded and needs help.


Consider these facts:

  • Most animals synthesize their own vitamin C
  • Although defective, humans carry the gene that would provide the ability to synthesize vitamin C
  • C-synthesizing animals produce vastly more vitamin C than the 90 mg government RDA
  • C-producing animals radically increase production when faced with severe health challenges
  • Non-C-producing animals are much more susceptible to disease than animals in the wild
