How to Reduce Bruising

A bruise is your body’s response to impact or injury.

Blood cells within your skin collect on the surface, leaving a black, blue, or greenish color to your skin. After an accident, such as a fall, a car collision, or surgery, you may have disfiguring bruises that linger. When this occurs, it is your body sending you a signal that something is out of balance.

How are bruises formed?

If you develop bruises easily, you may have a vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 is needed for your body to produce healthy blood cells and is in many types of food, but according to research, a large number of adults are deficient in this vital nutrient. If you bruise easily, or your bruises take a long time to disappear, you may need an infusion to restore B12.

You may experience excessive bruising for any of the following health reasons:

Low iron (anemia)

Cushing’s syndrome (an excess of the hormone cortisol)

Blood deficiencies
