In this video, we’re going to talk about vitamin C, and something called a subclinical vitamin C deficiency. 

You may have heard of scurvy, which is a severe vitamin C deficiency. This is also called a classical vitamin C deficiency. A subclinical vitamin C deficiency means you have some vitamin C, but you don’t have the full amount. 

What does vitamin C do?

• It works as an antioxidant 
• It’s involved in collagen growth and repair 
• It helps make noradrenaline 
• It’s necessary in the function of carnitine 
• Your white blood cells are saturated with vitamin C

Scurvy symptoms:

• Wounds that can’t heal
• Gingivitis
• Perifollicular hemorrhage 
• Fatigue 
• Red/purple blotches

 Foods that are rich in vitamin C:

• Papaya (I don’t recommend)
• Kiwi (I don’t recommend)
• Bell peppers
• Greens 
• Berries
• Cruciferous vegetables 

Many people also take vitamin C supplements. Just be sure your supplement is not synthetic. Make sure it’s food-based. Acerola cherry is also a great source of vitamin C. 

Things that can inhibit vitamin C absorption and potentially cause vitamin C deficiency signs:

• Smoking 
• Pregnancy 
• Age
• Overtraining 
• Sugar
