You may be eating healthily, doing sports twice a week, and drinking a lot of water
and still have problems with your body.
The reason for that may be a nutrient deficiency, which means vitamins and minerals.
Luckily, no nutrient deficiency occurs without certain visible signs.
Be sure to check these symptoms attentively to figure out if you have a lack of vital
nutrients in your body!
- If you're itching for chocolate (no pun intended!), it may be a clear sign of magnesium
Raw cacao is rich in magnesium, and your body might realize that it can get this nutrient
from chocolate.
On the other hand, you might just be a chocolate lover!
So as not to get confused, check if you have other symptoms of magnesium deficiency: insomnia,
agoraphobia (aka the fear of being in large crowds), and smelly feet.
Besides, a magnesium deficiency makes you extremely ticklish, and that's no joke!
To get rid of magnesium deficiency, eat the right foods.
Almonds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, coffee, flaxseeds, peanuts, and — right you are!
— dark chocolate are great sources of magnesium.
And some more good news: Popcorn contains a lot of magnesium as well!
- Do you have small bumps on the backs of your arms?
These are clear signs of vitamin A deficiency.
This nutrient is essential for your eyesight, skin, and immune system.
Some other symptoms of vitamin A deficiency are dry skin, frequent throat and chest infections,
and dry eyes.
You can get vitamin A both from plant foods and animal sources.
Try to eat more meat, fish, dairy products, and eggs as well as red, yellow, and orange
vegetables and fruits.
And don't forget that this is a fat-soluble vitamin!
Therefore, you should have a lot of whole fats in your diet: avocados, dark chocolate,
cheese, nuts, and olive oil.
- If you start yawning in the afternoon and regularly have a midday slump, you might get
too little rest at night.
Or you might have problems with your adrenal glands.
If this is the case, you should eat more products containing vitamin B1: salmon, lean pork,
green peas, flaxseeds, brown rice, asparagus, and firm tofu.
- Do you shy away from insects because you're the favorite choice of mosquitoes?
On top of that, your bite marks are itchier and much more swollen than those of your friends.
Don't worry!
You can change this pattern.
Mosquitoes' behavior may indicate that you're low in vitamin B1.
This vitamin puts out a smell that little blood-suckers don't like.
You'll find vitamin B1 in pork, salmon, tuna, blue mussels, black beans, wheat macaroni,
sunflower seeds, barley, corn, oatmeal, brown rice, dairy products, and fortified cereals.
Surely at least a few of these products will be to your liking?
- Imagine this: You're falling asleep, and you're almost there in dreamland, when bam!
Your leg jerks and wakes you up.
Sound familiar?
Then you have a lack of electrolytes in your body.
They are calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and they prevent your muscles from jerking
as you're falling asleep.
You'll find these nutrients in seeds, nuts, dairy products, leafy veggies, and even table
- You may notice small white spots on your nails if you have zinc deficiency or your
body doesn't absorb this nutrient well enough.
Other signs of this problem include acne, loss of smell or taste, and prematurely gray
On top of that, you may scar easily, and it may take longer for your cuts and wounds to
Zinc deficiency is a rare thing in the US, but it still happens.
Luckily, you can deal with this problem by changing your diet.
Try to eat more poultry and red meat, seeds, wild rice, and oysters.
If you believe that you have a serious zinc deficiency problem, consult your doctor.
There are many supplements that contain zinc, and a professional will help you to find the
right one for you.
- Most people lose approximately 100 strands of hair a day, and this is a perfectly normal
But if you discover that your hair has completely blocked the shower drain or your pillow looks
like a yeti because of all the hair you left behind after a night's sleep, it should set
off alarm bells in your head.
Talk to your doctor about this problem because the reason for bad hair loss may be a serious
iron deficiency.
This problem can also make you feel exhausted, dizzy, and weak, your skin may look too pale,
and you may suffer from shortness of breath and chest pains.
Also, people with iron deficiency often have cold feet and hands.
Luckily, iron deficiency can be eliminated with the help of supplements and by eating
the right foods.
Try to eat more red meat, turkey, dark leafy greens (such as spinach), liver, seafood and
shellfish, legumes, broccoli, dark chocolate, and quinoa.
- If you frequently have a weird sensation on your feet or feel your tongue burning,
you might have vitamin B12 deficiency, especially if these odd sensations are combined with
dry skin, constipation, and memory problems.
Vitamin B12 is crucial for your health since it helps your body produce hemoglobin, which
is part of your red blood cells.
Without hemoglobin, these blood cells won't be able to transport oxygen to different parts
of your body.
Besides taking the necessary supplements your doctor will prescribe if you have this deficiency,
you can help your body get more B12 by eating the right food.
Try to have more beef, sardines, tuna, trout, clams, animal liver and kidneys, and fortified
nutritional yeast.
- If your nails have become weak and brittle and your cuticle health leaves much to be
desired, you might have a biotin deficiency.
Biotin is a B-complex vitamin, and its other name is vitamin B7.
Thanks to this nutrient, your nails grow healthy and strong.
If you realize that you have a biotin deficiency, you can start eating more liver, egg yolk,
yeast, dairy products, avocado, salmon, nuts, seeds, sweet potato, and cauliflower.
- Have your eyebrows become visibly thinner recently?
Don't just ignore this problem in the hope that they will grow back again.
Thinning eyebrows, as well as puffy eyes, constipation, appetite loss, weakness and
fatigue, and intolerance to cold, may be signs of serious problems with your thyroid gland.
If you don't take care of this problem, it can lead to numerous complications, such as
heart problems, infertility, goiter, and even mental problems.
That's why it's important to visit your doctor to have your suspicions confirmed.
At the early stages, you can help your thyroid by eating sea vegetables and butter and avoiding
raw cruciferous vegetables.
Doing yoga, getting enough sleep, and cutting down on your stress levels will all help too.
- If you tend to bruise easily and suffer from nosebleeds every now and then, you might
have bioflavonoid deficiency.
Bioflavonoids are compounds that make blood vessel membranes (as well as other kinds of
membranes) in your body stable.
You can get rid of this deficiency if you eat more colored fruit and veggies.
You can also try taking supplements along with vitamin C. The latter will help your
body absorb bioflavonoids better.
- Muscle and joint pain, red dots on your skin, tiredness, and gum swelling and bleeding
may be symptoms of vitamin C deficiency.
This is one of the most widespread deficiencies — and a very serious one.
Vitamin C is essential for your immune system, eye health, and skin condition.
It's also a vital component that helps your body produce collagen.
Without vitamin C, collagen doesn't get replaced, and different types of tissues in your body
break down.
The best sources of vitamin C are red acerola cherries, chili peppers, sweet yellow peppers,
parsley, blackcurrants, thyme, kale, broccoli, kiwis, lemons, papayas, strawberries, oranges,
and spinach.
- If you suffer from bone pain, you might have a lack of vitamin D. Other signs of this
deficiency are frequent infections, tiredness and fatigue, depression, bad wound healing,
hair loss, and muscle pain.
If you have these symptoms, you might be one of the billion people all over the world who
suffer from low levels of vitamin D in their bodies.
In the US alone, more than 40% of adults were vitamin D deficient according to a 2011 study.
The situation hasn't significantly improved since then.
Interestingly, vitamin D works more like a hormone, and each cell of your body has a
special receptor for this vitamin.
Your body produces vitamin D from cholesterol when you go out in the sun.
It's true that you can also find this nutrient in fortified dairy products and fatty fish.
However, at the same time, it's very hard to get enough vitamin D from your food alone.
Your doctor can prescribe you special supplements, or you can try to go outside more often to
catch some sunshine.
