The most well-known consequence of vitamin C deficiency is scurvy. Hundreds of years ago in Europe, sailors who had been sailing at sea for a long time often suffered from scurvy. Patients often suffered from gum bleeding, even skin congestion and bleeding, and finally died painfully. People have been unable to find out the cause. Strangely enough, as long as the ship came ashore, the disease soon went away. Through careful observation, a doctor on board found that it was difficult for sailors to eat fresh fruits and vegetables during navigation. This may be the reason why the sailors were ill at that time.
Scurvy is mainly characterized by general weakness, loss of appetite, punctate bleeding on the skin, and even hematoma or ecchymosis. At the same time, the gums are swollen and infected. In addition, osteoporosis is also a manifestation of scurvy.
If you usually brush your teeth, your gums often bleed or don't hit hard, you will have dark blue and blood stasis on your body. At this time, you need to be vigilant about vitamin C deficiency.
