Vitamin C Deficiency

Tuesday, 01 Feb 2011 03:25 PM

One of the initial signs of vitamin C deficiency is weakness. A person who does not have enough vitamin C as a part of their regular diet may get tired very easily.  

Deficiency of this pure vitamin also affects the oral organs. Swollen gums are another important sign of a person who lacks vitamin C. Additionally, individuals may suffer from oral infection and bleeding gums. Such an individual must ensure adequate natural sources of pure vitamin C are being taken in by the body; otherwise vitamin C supplements should be added to the diet. Vitamin C supplements are readily available even without a prescription at a drugstore.
Apart from oral infection and bleeding gums, a bleeding nose is a common symptom of vitamin C deficiency. Generally, bleeding from the nose occurs when a person is exhausted or feeling hot. Inadequate red blood cells in the body also require vitamin C supplements. Anemia, therefore, is another sign of vitamin C deficiency.  Lastly, tingly, heavy arms are a sign of vitamin C deficiency. To recap, the top five signs that indicate that individuals require vitamin C supplements include:
· Exhaustion
· Swollen and bleeding gums
· Nose bleeds
· Anemia
· Tingly and heavy arms
In addition to the above, severe vitamin C deficiency can lead to scurvy and gingivitis. Vitamin C deficiency is also associated with high blood pressure, cancer, and gall bladder disease. Including lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet can ensure adequate vitamin C and prevent the risk of these conditions.
