...Back in seventeenth century, sailors discovered that eating limes prevented scurvy, a disease which we now know results from a lack of vitamin C. It was not until the 1930's that scientists discovered what the critical nutrient was in limes - vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. The first vitamin discovered was vitamin B1, or thiamine. Because it was "vital" to life, and contained a group of atoms known as an "amine", it was called "vitamine"...
But water is vital to life & is a chemical - but it's not classed as a vitamin.
Ah, ora capisco!
Yes, finally your poor English worked very well!
