Top Signs of Vitamin C Deficiency

Tuesday, 31 May 2011 12:30 PM

Vitamin c deficiency is usually a result of reduced dietary intake of vitamin C rich sources and underlying disorders that impair the absorption of vitamin C in the body. Vitamin C deficiency can be easily corrected by increasing the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables and by adding vitamin C supplements such as pure vitamin C and effervescent vitamin C.

Vitamin C deficiency symptoms include scurvy (a gum-related disorder that causes bleeding, pain, and swelling), muscular weakness, fatigue, dry hair, and scaly skin. Another important sign of vitamin C deficiency is that wounds refuse to heal quickly and immunity becomes impaired. The risk for vitamin C deficiency becomes higher for individuals who smoke and drink excess alcohol or are pregnant.

Vitamin C deficiency can be countered by adding special forms of vitamin C supplements, which are easily absorbed by the body and often are fortified with other vital nutrients and trace minerals.

• Pure vitamin C supplements are available in stores as powders, capsules, or drinks. These supplements help fight vitamin C deficiency and improve cardio vascular and skin health.
• To counter vitamin C deficiency, effervescent vitamin C supplements are often preferred because of their pleasant taste and ease of consumption (effervescent vitamin C supplements come in liquid form) and claimed lesser content of sodium than chewable vitamin C tablets.
