12 Signs of Nutrient Deficiency and the Nutrients you need to monitor

In today’s modern world, with household pantries and store shelves overflowing with food stuff items, being deficient in essential nutrients is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Unfortunately, as a result of food processing, harvesting procedures, and insufficient growing climates, much of our food lacks the appropriate amounts of essential vitamins, minerals and other healthful nutrients.

Listed below are 12 signs that you may be nutrient deficient:

1.    Hair loss

2.    Dark circles under the eyes

3.    Sores in your mouth

4.    Brain fog or memory loss



5.    Decreased sexual drive

6.    Lack of energy

7.    Ridged or discolored nails

8.    Depression

9.    Shortness of breath

10.  Anemia

11.  Cold hands and feet

12.  Frequent illnesses

All of these symptoms, and many others, are signs that you are either not taking in enough healthful nutrients or that your body is not processing and extracting nutrients effectively from the foods that you are eating.

Listed below are 12 of the most common micro-nutrient deficiencies:

1.    Vitamin A

2.    Vitamin B12

3.    Vitamin C

4.    Vitamin D

5.    Vitamin E

6.    Iron

7.    Magnesium

8.    Zinc

9.    Glutamine

10.  Coenzyme Q10

11.  Sodium

12.  Omega Fatty Acids

Almost every physiological function in your body requires micronutrients to function optimally. However, no single food contains all of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants we need, and therefore, a balanced and varied diet is necessary for an adequate intake of all micronutrients.

At Stanly Wellness Center, to my knowledge, we are the only clinic in the area that offers a comprehensive extracellular and intracellular assessment of the levels of the most important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids and amino acids necessary for proper and optimal health.
