Vitamins are substances that are vital for us. Our body cannot produce most of them, but that’s why we consume them with food. They have multiple roles in the body.
Thus, they positively affect the operation of the immune system, and they are necessary for the creation of hormones and enzymes that encourage and regulate numerous processes in our organism, for example, the exchange of substances.
Our body can show you exactly what you’re missing. Here are several things you notice every day, and can really do something about it.
- Cracks on the lips – Missing: iron, zinc and B-vitamins.
- Red rash on the face ( or sometimes elsewhere ) and hair loss – Missing: vitamin B7, known as hair vitamin.
- Red or white skin changes similar to acne, usually on the face, arms, thighs and backs – Missing: essential fatty acids and vitamins A and E.
- Numbness and tingling on your hands, feet or anywhere on your body – Missing: vitamins B, like folic acid (B9), B6 and B12.
- Muscle cramps, severe pain in the fingers, wrists, feet, legs and back – Missing: magnesium, calcium and potassium.
