Health Tip: Get Enough Vitamin C

(HealthDay News) - Vitamin C is an antioxidant that's found primarily in citrus fruits, leafy green vegetables, broccoli, potatoes and other fruits and veggies.

Significant enough vitamin C deficiency can lead to a condition called scurvy.

Here are warning signs that you're not getting enough vitamin C, courtesy of the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
  • Excessively dry hair with ends that split easily.
  • Scaly, rough, dry skin.
  • Bleeding or inflamed gums.
  • Wounds that heal slowly, frequent infections, and bruising easily.
  • Frequent nosebleeds.
  • Pain and swelling in the joints.
  • Anemia.
  • Weakened tooth enamel.
