Love this quiz!

Can I make a suggestion? Could you accept pyridoxine for vitamin B6, Ascorbic acid for vitamin C and folate also as an alternative for folic acid?

Suggest allowing just letter & number for the vitamins, I knew most of them but not enough time to type vitamin each time

If I accept just A, C, D, E, etc, then it will count Vitamin C when people type Chromium, Calcium, Copper, Chlorine... However, I will add more time to the clock!

23/27. It definitely helped that I spent last week memorizing a lot of these for a Nutrition test I had :)
