In this video, we’re going to talk about why you may have red spots on your skin.
Low levels of vitamin K1 can cause poor blood clotting. In turn, you may have red, pink, or purple spots. If you have low vitamin C, then you may have impaired capillary strength, which can cause red or purple spots.
In nature, vitamin K1 and vitamin C tend to come from the same sources. You want to consume plenty of vegetables to get both of these powerful nutrients.
Your gut makes vitamin K1. So if you have poor gut health, this could be a reason why your K1 levels are low.
Though it’s very rare, low calcium can cause red spots on your skin. Another cause of red spots is a viral infection.
There are two primary underlying causes of having red spots on your skin:
1. Diet – You need to consume healthy nutrients to get all of your vitamins. It is especially important that you have 7-10 cups of vegetables per day.
2. Malabsorption – If you can’t absorb your nutrients, you can develop deficiencies even if you consume the right foods. Probiotics and bile salts may help improve digestion and absorption.
The best sources of vitamin K1 are:
• Collard greens
• Dark leafy greens
The best sources of vitamin C are:
• Bell pepper
See if these tips help improve red spots on your skin.
