    to make you really paranoid, these are just the overt symptoms of vitamin c deficiency!
    you will also be more prone to infections and will be ar slower to recover from infections,
    long term vitamin c deficiency leads to degradation of body tissues throught the tissues from oxdidative damage from toxins, oxygen and fat based free radicals.
    a long term study in the states of tens of tousands of people over several decades concluded taking just 300mg of vitamin c supplemnts a day extended lifespan by eight years!
    we live in a society exposed to more toxins than ever and more oxidative fats than ever. few people eat food that is truly fresh and with a full vitamin c content, as vitamin c quickly gets destroyed once food is harvested and from cold storage. fresh fruit like oranges tht are normally high in vitamin C have been tested with zero vitamin C as a result of storage.
    we live in a way we werent designed to live and are being deprived of important anti oxidants like Vitamin C that we require, we need to supplement VItamin C
