It is recommended that we take vitamin C when we have a cold or the flu. It is also great for many diseases, as well as for our beauty. However, if your body lacks this vitamin, you can experience many health issues.

1. You easily bruise

If you are anaemic and you lack vitamin C, you can bruise easily. You should consume more foods that are high in this vitamin, such as oranges, kale, and peppers so that you won’t lack vitamin C.

2. Nosebleeds

If your body lacks vitamin C, the capillaries in the nose become more sensitive and the result is nosebleeds.

3. Wounds heal slower

Our body needs to have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen through our body. They are responsible when a blood clot is formed, or when new cells grow. If you lack vitamin C, your body will struggle producing new cells. Therefore, if you have any wounds they will heal slower.

4. Fatigue and depression

If you often feel tired or moody you may lack vitamin C. Consult your doctor if you don’t see any changes and you regularly consume vitamin C.

5. Irregular heartbeat

If your body lacks iron, you may have problems with your heart or pregnancy, or develop anaemia. You need to take vitamin C because with its help iron is absorbed better in our body.

6. Swollen gums
