5 Hidden Signs You Have a Vitamin Deficiency

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

It may be shocking to learn, but 92 percent of people in the U.S. have a vitamin-deficiency, and according to Power of Positivity, it’s because we’re unaware that even though we’re overfed, we are undernourished. So how did we get there?

And how can we tell if we’re lacking in some vitamin? To help Power of Positivity offers five signs that should give you a clue that you need to “nourish-up.” Those include:

  1. Fatigue, which is often a sign of a lack of potassium
  2. Bleeding gums, which can be a sign of a vitamin C deficiency
  3. Vision problems, which can mean you need more vitamin A
  4. Fragile hair or nails, which is a sign of iron deficiency as well as a lack of calcium, B vitamins or zinc
  5. Sudden weight gain, which can be a signal of a lack of iodine

As I’ve repeatedly said, the best way to get your vitamins is through your diet, so the first thing you need to do if you have any of these vitamin deficiency signs is to start regularly eating foods that contain the lacking vitamins or minerals. For example, vitamin D comes from the sun, so make an effort to get some full sun every day.

You can get vitamin C from guava, broccoli, red and green peppers and oranges. To get more iodine in your diet, be sure to include eggs, fish, raw milk, spirulina and sea vegetables such as kelp, kombu and wakame. The best source of vitamin A your body can actually use is animal products such as fish, grass fed meat, liver and pastured poultry, as well as raw, organic dairy products like butter.

You can lower your high blood pressure with potassium-containing foods like leafy greens, crimini mushrooms, avocados, blueberries and wild-caught salmon, organic pastured eggs and poultry, to name a few — not to mention they also can boost your B vitamins and calcium levels.

One thing you can also do to boost your overall health and well-being so you’re more awake and healthy is to consider limiting your sugar intake, as sugar disrupts your metabolic cycle and tricks you into eating non-nutritious foods filled with empty calories and devoid of vitamins altogether.
