Some particular Vitamin and Mineral deficiencies may lead your body to several critical health conditions. Here are five common symptoms generally caused by Vitamin and Mineral deficiencies:
Headaches: About 75% of the people of North America have a deficiency of magnesium. It is a very common deficiency. Magnesium is required for the functioning of the nervous system. It relieves tension, cramping, headaches and makes you fall asleep. Green leafy vegetables are rich in magnesium. Add Epsom salt to your bath. It is easily absorbed into your skin. It will help you relax faster.
Acne: this is sign of zinc deficiency. Oil production by the skin is regulated by zinc. The color and complexion of your skin is also regulated by zinc. It regenerates skin, soothes inflammation, boosts healing and inhibits acne production by reducing the activity of 5-alpha-reductase. This enzyme is responsible for converting testosterone to the pimple promoting form. It is enough to have about 30mg per day. You can also have raw pumpkin seeds.
Brittle, dry, broken nails and hair: vitamin B 7 or biotin is responsible for good hair. This deficiency is rare, because biotin is found in a lot of sources. But if you are suffering from dry, brittle hair or cracked nails, this may be it. To get back your lovely hair, have biotin supplements or food rich in biotin.
Thinning hair: anemia or low iron levels cause hair loss. Iron carries oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body, including hair follicles.
White bumps behind your arm: this is caused due to a fatty acid imbalance, mainly omega 3 fatty acids. They are anti-inflammatory and reduce the inflammation of the bumps. They also inhibit hardening of hair follicles and dissolve any kind of build ups.
