Could You Have A Nutritional Deficiency?
Are you getting enough nutrients from your food?

Eating a balanced and nutritious diet is essential to a strong and healthy life. While you might think that experiencing a nutritional deficiency is something resigned to history, in the hustle and bustle of modern life, it can be easy to forget to fuel your body with the right nutrients. 

A nutrient deficiency alters the way our body functions, and some of the most common symptoms include:

Lack of calcium 

A calcium deficiency can lead to a feeling of numbness and tingling in your fingers, as well as creating an abnormal heartbeat rhythm. This requires a severe and sustained level of deficiency before these symptoms become apparent. 

Lack of Vitamin D 

Vitamin D is essential to bone health, but a deficiency of it in our diet can lead to constant feelings of fatigue, muscular aches, bone pain and changes in our mood. 

Lack of potassium 

Potassium is an essential requirement for the health of our heart and muscles, and not getting enough or having excessive alcohol consumption could lead to muscle weakness, an irregular heartbeat, and constipation. 

Lack of iron 

Do you find that you regularly have cold hands and feet? That could be a sign that you are not getting enough iron in your diet. An iron deficiency can also lead to a fast heartbeat, weakness, fatigue and shortness of breath.
