Liver is also a very high source of vitamin C. In a 100 gram comparison of apple has 7mg of vitamin C, liver has 27mg.

That's very true Anecorbie, I'm pretty sure that Limes actually have a higher vitamin C content then oranges or lemons, meaning that limes would help to prevent scruvy better than oranges or lemons.

You're getting that vitamin through other means - veggies, or other fresh foods or vitamin supplements.

Eat Valencian Oranges... or don't. They are the most MYSTERIOUS substances in the spiral. I'll explain why very soon.

Actually, due to the poor water treatment available during age of pirates, and because water itself can actually go bad most sailing ships preferred to keep large quantities of whiskey, rum, or other spirits depending on which country the ship sailed from. A common technique was actually to mix water with whiskey or rum, thus prolonging the storage life of the water, as well as making the spirits last longer.

British sailors were even rationed a specific amount of rum per day.

Then eat something else that has vitamin C in it. Ascorbic acid is an additive to a number of foods anyway; you'll get it somehow.

Take a multivitamin if you have a really unbalanced diet. I wouldn't go with one that claims to have 100% of all your RDA of anything, but that's because I assume you eat something.
