i doubt very much its the tea...to me it sounds more of an allergy..mostly to wheat. my friend is like that her legs have bruises on them..her cause was the wheat...dunno im just saying...

melissa,

Many people SWEAR by Vitamin C to ostensibly strengthen the tiny capillaries and arterioles that burst causing a bruise....my jury of 1 is still out on it's effectiveness.
You could TRY 2,000 mg. a day for a few weeks and see if that helps. The cost is small and it can't do any harm.

kool beans zip2..but, why should she take a suplement..if she can find the culprit wouldn't it be better that way..I mean supplements might help but, if the bruises come back six months later, means the problem is somewhere else..anyways don't worry about it, I don't think its that bad..just try eating less wheat stuff and, see if it works..it did work on my friend.. ;)
