Do you bruise easily?
Bruising is when a blood vessel bursts under the skin, usually due to trauma.
However if you find you have been bruising without bumping into things and just being clumsy then a bruise can be a sign of weakened blood vessels (in the long run can result in an anuerism).
One simple reason for easy bruising is vitamin C deficiency. Healthy strong blood vessels require good nutrition and loads of vitamin C.
- For 3 months take a powdered form of vitamin C as it absorbs better
- Up your fresh seasonal fruit intake. Fruit is best eaten between meals
- Drink loads of freshly made lemonade (with real lemons) and honey
- Eat more raw vegetables
There can be more serious reasons for easy bruising, so make sure you rule out other causes.
