Hair skin & nail issues? Could be a Vitamin C Deficiency 

Deficiencies in vitamin C mean your body can’t produce collagen. This is probably why one of the most common signs of Vitamin C deficiency is dry skin.1  Collagen is also responsible for reducing signs of aging.So it’s not a stretch to say your skin will show more signs of aging, if you’re vitamin C deficient. 

Fatigue is also associated with vitamin C deficiency.3 So those dark circles under your eyes could be related to not getting enough vitamin C in your diet! Additionally bleeding gums and sores on your skin are associated with poor vitamin C stores.1

Careful, not all vitamin C supplements can help

Did you know not all vitamin C supplements are created equally? Just like fast food and fast farming, we must beware of fast supplements! It’s much cheaper to use synthetically isolated vitamins that are produced using chemicals and questionable practices. Not only do these not work, but they can actually be harmful to your body! To cut costs some companies will even use fillers, sweeteners and binders. That’s not going to help your body out! Your body needs whole foods that are rich in vitamin C! Our 2 ingredient PureFood C contains organic, cold processed amla berries and moringa leaves. That’s it! Easy for your body to absorb and use.
