Vit C defeciency

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Bleeding gums is very common sign of vitamin C deficiency.

Do take Vit C supplements like Tab Limcee 500mg twice daily for a period of 15 days. This will surely reduce the gum bleeding. Also, increase the intake of citrus fruits.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
