The human body is a perfect machine. For this reason, when something is wrong, it does not take long to warn us. Often, however, it is we ourselves who, taken by the frenzy of everyday life, decide to ignore these important signs. But if we push them into the background, we could suffer serious, if not disastrous, consequences. This is why today we warn of one of these signals. In fact, if you suffer from apathy, weakness and muscle pain could be due to a lack of this precious vitamin. Let’s see together specifically what it is and how we can do to avoid finding ourselves in this unpleasant situation.
Be careful not to abuse supplements
We are talking about ascorbic acid, an element that is more commonly also called “vitamin C”. Many as soon as winter arrives, they stock it up, convinced that it helps to fight colds or that it is even a powerful ally against Covid 19. Unfortunately, this is fake news. As far as colds are concerned, in fact, this vitamin has no particular benefits other than to reduce the time of the flu episode. However, if you suspect that you need to increase your need for this vitamin, we always recommend that you consult an expert. In fact, buying supplements and taking them in an unregulated way could worsen the picture of the situation. According to the Ministry of Health, ingesting a high quantity without having a vitamin deficiency can even be harmful. In fact, abusing it could cause kidney problems.
Apathy, weakness and muscle aches could be due to the deficiency of this precious vitamin
However, lack of it could lead the body to show signs of weakness and fatigue. In addition to these, Humanitas also highlights another symptom that is difficult to notice: lack of appetite. In fact, these conditions can return to normality only if they occur sporadically. They may perhaps be induced by a particularly heavy period on a psychological level. When they become chronic, however, there is a need to ascertain their nature through targeted checks.
AOther symptoms that may occur
However, there are also consequences that can be more worrying. Specifically, we refer to anemia, but also to problems related to the mouth area. These include excessive gum bleeding and even tooth loss. If these signs are found in oneself or in loved ones, it is best to consult a doctor immediately to understand how it is best to behave.
