stress causes PF because....Posted by scott on 3/07/99 at 00:00 (005326)
Vitamin C is THE main compound in your body that relieves mental and physical stress. Since humans are just about the only animals who do not make C in their bodies, they do not get enough. Additionally, animals (except humans) produce up to twice as much C when they are under stressful conditions because animals (including humans) get their C depleted under these conditions. C is the primary limiting factor in how much collagen (for tissue strength) is produced so that injuries heal slower under stressful conditions unless there is adequate C intake (at least 1,000 mg with each meal).
These facts have been known since 1950. You may not have known this before because the medical community is more interested in your money than your health.
