Hey guys! In this video we are gonna talk about something called Subclinical Scurvy. Now, what is scurvy means? Scurvy is a severe vitamins C deficiency. Subclinical is something that doesn’t show up on a blood test or a usual test. It might be that you are kind of slowly developing a vitamins C deficiency, you are not quite in a full blown but you are just before that phase kind of like pre-diabetes type situation. And the other word for that is called Latent Scurvy where you have deficiencies but it doesn’t show up yet because you just don’t end up one day with scurvy. It just slowly starts to happen and a lot of people are deficient in vitamins C. In fact, 1 out of 5 men are deficient in vitamins C. 1 out of 9 women are deficient in the vitamins C. One person might have it in their like gums, bleeding gums. One person can have it in their muscles, the weak inflamed muscles. Where someone else can have it in the arteries of the heart. It could be different from different people. That’s why sometimes it’s hard to have this perfect diagnosis of vitamin C deficiency and go “oh you have these three things so you have it.” Because it can be a wide range of things. I wanted to give you an overview, kind of just a general idea of what could occur if you are starting to become deficient in vitamins c and maybe you are not full blown scurvy case but you have some of the symptoms. Here are some of the symptoms, fatigue, weak, irritable, leg pain, inflammation, achy joints/muscles. I mean this is very, very common. Now instead of getting out there and getting a very, very expensive test to figure this out, all you have to do is to start consuming foods that are high in vitamins c and see if you get better. See if these things clear right up and you are probably gonna find that they do. That is actually the easiest thing to do. But the tissue in your body that is most susceptible to vitamin c deficiencies is your vascular system. Because vitamins c is a purpose of keeping the collagen in the arteries nice and strong and elastic. When you don’t have vitamin c, you get certain like little lesions or holes in the arteries. Vitamins C in intimately involved in vascular integrity and so you have capillary damage which really happens with high levels of sugar in the blood, or glucose in the blood. Being a pre-diabetic or a diabetic and then you end up having high insulin. What happens is that the high amounts of sugar competes with vitamins c. When sugar goes up, the vitamins c goes down then you become susceptible.
