How do you recognize a deficiency of essential vitamins?
Vitamins are a group of active ingredients that are necessary for the proper functioning of the metabolism. An unbalanced diet can lead to insufficient amounts of these, which can lead to the appearance of a number of abnormalities. How do you recognize a deficiency in the most important vitamins? How do we treat it?
A deficiency in the most important vitamins makes daily life difficult.
The starting point is to briefly divide vitamins into two groups. The first group is fat-soluble vitamins, which include vitamins A, D, E, K. It is stored by the body (in adipose tissue and liver), which is lucky - on the one hand, it can be a source of it. Harmful excesses, on the other hand, an optimal diet and adequate consumption of healthy fats make it possible to maintain their content at an adequate level.
The second group, meanwhile, consists of water-soluble vitamins. These are B vitamins (such as biotin, folic acid, folate, niacin, B12, B6, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, and thiamine) and vitamin C (ascorbic acid). These substances do not accumulate in the body, and when supplied in excess quantities are eliminated through urine and sweat. Therefore, they rarely pose a risk of toxic poisoning and at the same time must be provided to the body through the daily diet.
Vitamin deficiency is mainly due to poor diet. Consuming a large number of processed products, which do not contain valuable nutrients, actually does not allow to supply the desired vitamin components.
