Many are not getting enough of the nutrients that one needs daily in their diets.  This could be due to the fact that the diet they have is not providing adequate amounts of the vitamins and minerals.

The Most Common 7 Nutrient Deficiencies

There are many people that have issues with their digestive tract and other health ailments that we can not really afford to be deficient on any nutrients.  If you are not getting enough in the diet, consider taking supplements.  Here is a list of the most common nutrient deficiencies:

Vitamin D– We can get vitamin D from the sun, but in the winter, this is often not possible. We often stay out of the cold, and so we are not getting the proper amounts we need. And diet can also interfere with this, as foods that are full of herbicide glyphsate can intrude on the kidneys and liver.  You can eat trout, sardines, caviar and portabello mushrooms to up your vitamin D intake.  You may also supplement with cod liver oil, or vitamin D3.

Omega-3 fats– These fats are great for the anti-inflammation properties that they have. Inflammation has been linked to cancers and other health ailments. You can supplement with krill oil, or eat sardines, wild Alaskan salmon, or hemp seeds.

Vitamin K2– Without this vitamin, vitamin D can not work properly and vice versa. This vitamin will help with strong bones, as well as healthy blood vessels and arteries.  Eat kimchi or homemade sauerkraut to reap the benefits.

Magnesium– This will help with a healthy cardiovascular system as well as maintaining proper metabolic functions. It can also eliminate toxins in the body, as well as assist the body’s cleansing process. Reap the benefits by juicing vegetables, soaking in Epsom salt baths or foot baths, eating dark green leafy vegetables and pumpkin seeds, and taking a magnesium supplement.

Vitamin E– Vitamin E is needed for brain health. One can supplement their diet with nuts, such as hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, and pecans or eat sunflower seeds, or cook with olive oil. Vitamin E is also found in broccoli and other green vegetables.

Vitamin B12– This vitamin helps with energy production, DNA synthesis, and blood formation. Eating a diet rich in salmon, eggs, organic poultry and grass fed beef can help reach the proper levels needed. Oral supplements can also be taken.

Choline– This helps brain development. It is an anti-inflammatory, so it will also assist in muscle control and memory. Eating wheat germ, beef liver, brussel sprouts, raw milk and broccoli for the best sources of choline.
