11 Signs Of A Nutrient Deficiency - Harper Nutrition

You may feel that your daily food intake is pretty good - that you are getting the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are essential (meaning these micronutrients can ONLY come from the food you eat - your body cannot make these) on a daily basis.

Or perhaps you haven't really put too much thought into it - and you don't realize that adequate daily intake of micronutrients is essential to your health and well-being. Afterall, "You are what you eat"... Or, as we like to say, "YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB" (OR, IN THIS CASE, DON'T ABSORB).

Regardless, there's still something "off". You know yourself best, and you can just tell there's something not right with your overall health. But you can't put your finger on it.

By watching for signs in your own body, sometimes you can determine if you have a nutrient deficiency

The 7 most common nutrient deficiencies are:
Iron, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Vitamin C and Vitamin B12.

The following 11 symptoms may be “red flags” for nutritional deficiencies:
- Hair loss
- Discoloration or ridges on nails
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Skin rash or acne that persists
- Periodontal Disease
- Sores on the mouth
- Tingling or other sensations in the extremities
- Brain fog and other cognitive dysfunction, such as memory loss
- Loss of sexual drive/ libido
- Depression and/or lethargy
- Ongoing fatigue

If you notice any of these symptoms, you may be struggling with a nutrient deficiency.
