100 % natural oral spray with vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the essential vitamins as it is extremely important for the human body. Most importantly it contributes to normal function of the immune system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue and acts as an antioxidant as it protects the cells from oxidative stress. While it is commonly advised to get vitamin C intake from varied diet, people often turn to supplementation to meet their needs, especially in the times of higher risk of infections.

There are many signs of vitamin C deficiency – from beauty issues to serious health problems. One of the worst, that rarely happen anymore (globally) is scurvy. Other signs include symptoms of weakness, anemia, gum disease, and skin problems. This is because vitamin C is needed for making collagen, an important component in connective tissues.
One of the first signs might be brittle nails, weak hair and skin problems, as any health issues often first reflect on those. Easy bruising, slow healing, weak bones, painful joints, even bleeding gums and consistent anaemia can all to traced back to vitamin C deficiency.
