We will advise you on how to recognize that your body lacks the necessary vitamins and minerals. Recognizing a deficiency of certain healthy substances in the body can sometimes be difficult.
Eye and skin problems
In addition to the general fatigue you may experience with vitamin A deficiency, you may also have vision problems (night blindness, conjunctivitis, dry eyes). If you suffer from skin problems, it may also be due to a vitamin A deficiency, age spots, eczema and flakes may appear on your skin. Digestive problems such as diarrhea and loss of appetite or increased susceptibility to respiratory infections may also occur. Vitamin A essentially helps to heal wounds faster, supports the immune system and strengthens eyesight.
Source of vitamin A: fish oil, carrots, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, pumpkin, butter.
Mucosal bleeding and depression
It is most often associated with a lack of vitamin C, which is extremely important for our body. It is a very powerful antioxidant that acts as a prevention against heart disease, asthma and colds. Vitamin C also helps with good regeneration and its deficiency can be manifested by impaired wound healing, nosebleeds, high blood pressure, varicose veins, overweight, increased fatigue and psyche.
Vitamin D is most often obtained from the sun and its deficiency can be recognized only after a long time, which is why the consequences of its deficiency are much more serious. This is most often manifested by softening of the bones, skin problems, enlarged joints, myopia, muscle weakness and tooth loss. Vitamin D deficiency is most often caused by frequent nerve problems, pessimism, depression and sleep disorders.
Source of vitamin D: sea fish (fish oil), eggs, butter.
Fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath during exertion
These difficulties are associated with iron deficiency. If your diet is varied enough, you should have a sufficient daily dose of iron. Its deficiency is most often associated with women, who most often face this problem during menstruation, pregnancy and after childbirth, as well as small children or the elderly. Most often due to lower red blood cell counts and lower hemoglobin levels, this is most often manifested by fatigue, weakness, insufficient blood oxygenation, dizziness and impaired concentration. Very pale skin, anemia and shortness of breath on exertion are also very common symptoms.
Protein is the basic building material for our body and their lack can be threatening to the body. Protein deficiency can most often manifest itself in loss of muscle mass, weakening of the immune system, breaking of nails, swelling, fatigue, apathy and depression. Protein should make up about 30% of your total daily food intake. Of the total amount of protein ingested, 2/3 should be of plant and 1/3 of animal origin.
Source of protein: meat, eggs, nuts, cheese, legumes, soy, tofu.
