To understand the essence of Scurvy, it is critical to define this term professionally. It is not possible to remain completely healthy without the proper amount of vitamin C in the organism. It is an integral part of our body (a.k.a. protein). If the person lacks this type of protein, he or she must be ready to face such problems as the gums that bleed without a good reason, time-consuming recovery from traumas, and easy bruising. Besides, the connective tissue simply falls apart.

The initial symptoms mostly deal with the eating behaviors: they may change suddenly. It will result in the changes in weight as well as extreme exhaustion and annoyance. As one month or three months pass by, more symptoms show up (anemia, bone ache, tiny red spots, bleeding, swelling, issues with gum and mouth hygiene, breathlessness, behavioral fluctuations, and problems with hair). In rare cases, the patients may experience the ruination of red blood cells (RBC), excessive bleeding of different organs, high fever, and even convulsions. The disease may end up in death.
