Top 5 Worst Symptoms of a Vitamin Deficiency (Or Best Reasons to Supplement)

vitamin-deficiency

Is there anything worse than feeling the worst? We imagine a large percentage of the population goes through life feeling just “blah”. It’s something many people have come to just accept… but what if you could change that?

There’s no question that the food you eat plays a big roll in how you feel. We all know it, and that’s why so many people have fallen victim to the detox: cutting sugar, gluten, carbs out… whatever society tells them is wrong at the time. But what if its not so much about cutting out than it is about ADDING?

Adding the RIGHT vitamins and minerals to your diet can make a world of a difference, because WITHOUT them you face deficiencies that make you feel down right terrible (or worse). Here’s what you face if you’re not getting enough of the right nutrients every single day:

  1. Disease & SicknessCancer and heart disease are the two big ones, but Parkinson’s Disease, scurvy, pneumonia… these are all things that are associated with low levels of certain vitamins & minerals. And nutrition plays a huge role in your immune system, which helps to ward off sickness.
  1. Depression: Vitamins like Iron, Zinc, B, Magnesium and D play a huge roll in happiness! Increasing your levels of these is a lot easier, cheaper and better for your health than an antipsychotic drug.
  1. Energy Loss: We all know food = energy, and that some foods make us feel better than others. A lot of this has to do with the way we are absorbing (or losing) the vitamins in those foods! Foods with these energy-boosting vitamins are going to power us up, while things that deplete our nutrients (like sugar and alcohol) are going to slow us down.
  1. Cognitive Difficulties: There are everyday memory troubles, and then there’s Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Vitamins and minerals keep your mind SHARP! Especially B12.
  1. Weakness: Muscle and bone weakness is on a totally different level than just feeling tired. It’s a bit more serious, and it’s something that’s going to affect you for the rest of your life if you aren’t proactive about it. Thankfully, many of the vitamins and minerals that help you with your energy levels, depression, immunity and brain health ALSO help you stay strong. Coincidence? Probably not.
