Let’s talk about the best indicators of a vitamin C deficiency.

It’s crucial to understand that synthetic vitamin C is very different from natural vitamin C. In nature, vitamins come as a complex. Ascorbic acid, which is synthetic vitamin C, is only one piece of the vitamin C complex.

The natural vitamin C complex includes:
• Ascorbic acid
• Vitamin P
• Vitamin K
• Vitamin J
• Copper

Overall, vitamin C is essential to support your immune system, connective tissue, and capillaries. It’s also a very powerful antioxidant.

The top signs of low vitamin C:
1. Bleeding gums
2. Small red and purple dots on your skin
3. Bruising
4. Dry, rough, or scaly skin
5. Chicken skin
6. Nose bleeds
7. Dry, splitting hair

The best sources of vitamin C are foods high in vitamin C or food concentrates.

Foods rich in vitamin C:
• Lemons
• Peppers
• Cabbage
• Blueberries
• Sauerkraut
