Role of Vitamin C

Sour fruits and vitamin c rich foods like lemon, oranges and Amla promote and stimulate saliva production by the salivary glands. This increased production quality is used to “flush out” the gland and ducts system of debris and small stones. However since in most people symptoms are usually diagnosed pretty late the vitamin c rich foodstuffs may lead to acute pain as the duct would be completely blocked. It remains however a useful tool in post Sialendoscopy patients for a faster recovery and complete evacuation of all debris from the ductal system.
