Different vitamin and mineral deficiencies can lead to all sorts of different health problems. Here are five common symptoms and the vitamin or mineral deficiency that’s likely to blame.
Magnesium is one of the most common mineral deficiencies in our culture. Roughly 75% of the North American population is deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is a powerful nutrient for nervous system function. It helps relax nerves and tense muscles, alleviate muscle cramping and headaches, and can help you fall asleep. An easy way to get some magnesium is to add some green leafy veggies like kale or collard greens to your next smoothie or a scoop of Vega One Nutritional Shake which boasts 30% of your daily requirements. You can also add Epsom salts to your next bath. Epsom salts are high in magnesium and easily absorbed through your skin while you relax in the tub!
