Antiscorbutic in Spanish is Escorbuto
Prevenir o aliviar el escorbuto. El escorbuto es una avitaminosis producida por la deficiencia de vitamina C, que es requerida para la síntesis de colágeno en los humanos. El nombre químico para la vitamina C, ácido ascórbico, proviene de una raíz latina scorbutus. Era común en los marinos que subsistían con dietas en las que no figuraban fruta fresca ni hortalizas (reemplazando estos con granos secos y carne salada). Fue reconocida hace más de dos siglos por el médico naval británico James Lind, que la prevenía o curaba añadiendo cítricos a la dieta. - See link
