Our body needs vitamins and minerals in order to perform its daily functions properly. The best way for this is consuming a healthy diet in order to get the sufficient amounts of the nutrients.
These signs indicate vitamin deficiency:
Cracked lips – this denotes vitamin B (B3, B2, and B12), iron, and zinc deficiency. This appears usually among vegetarians as they do not consume enough of these nutrients. The best way to acquire them is through consumption of Swiss chard, peanuts, salmon, shellfish, eggs, tuna, poultry meat, and lentils. The absorption of iron can be improved with the help of vitamin C and it can be found in red peppers, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower. Vitamin C helps in strengthening the immune system.
Red rash on the face and hair loss – this may denote deficiency of vitamin B7. You should eat more cooked eggs, cauliflower, soybeans, walnuts, raspberries, bananas, salmon, avocado, and mushrooms.
