The Cause of Bruising

1318As you get older, you may start to notice that your skin bruises more easily than it used to. While this is a common occurrence with age, certain meditations or underlying medical conditions could also be the cause. For example, easy bruising could be a sign that you are deficient in vitamin C and bioflavonoids.*

If you notice that you are bruising easily, try increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables. You can get some extra vitamin C from citrus fruits, and you might also consider taking a bioflavonoid supplement.
