Vitamin C

I have Most of the signs of needing more Vitamin C

Slow healing of cuts , frequent colds , bleeding gums etc.
I eat lots of Bell Pepers , Tomatoes , Pineapple and Carrots all raw , but it doesn't make a difference.
I have been eating like this for almost 3 months now and I still am getting signs of needing Vitimin C .

Any Help ?

Causes of bleeding gums include:

Gingivitis (most common cause)
Any bleeding disorder
Brushing too hard
Hormonal changes during pregnancy
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
Ill-fitting dentures
Improper flossing
Infection, which can be either tooth- or gum-related
Scurvy (vitamin C deficiency)
Use of blood thinners
Vitamin K deficiency
