Vitamin C is very similar in structure to glucose, as it only takes one enzymatic reaction to convert it. Unfortunately, humans do not possess this enzyme and therefore cannot synthesize Vitamin C from glucose. Vitamin C deficiency is called scurvy, and was first cured with the dietary inclusion of citrus fruits. Some of the best dietary sources are broccoli, red capsicum and tomatoes.
