    Default Can Increasing Vitamin C Intake Help Stop Bleeding Gums?

    Kimberley Drake

    A new study indicates that low levels of vitamin C in the bloodstream may be an underlying cause of bleeding gums. Researchers say brushing and flossing might not be enough to reverse this oral health issue.


    When gums bleed, it is often a symptom of underlying oral health issues, such as gingivitis or periodontal disease, an inflammatory condition that affects gum tissue and teeth.

    In the early stages of gingivitis, gums may swell and bleed. If left untreated, these symptoms can worsen, causing the gums to pull away from the teeth, resulting in tooth and bone loss.
    Traditional treatments for bleeding gums include adding more brushing and flossing to the daily oral hygiene regimen and treating underlying conditions that may contribute to the development of gingivitis.

    My understanding had been that the bioflavonoids which accompany ascorbate when found in nature, such as hesperidin, rutin, etc., are essential to prevent gum disease.

    My morning dose of C is the one with L-lysine and L-proline. The rest of the day I use a product that contains bioflavonoids and quercetin (is that another bioflavonoid?) I had been ordering that from Vitacost but when they ran out I switched to Life Extension and found the same product at substantial savings.
