Fatigue, weakness, difficulty concentrating, low immune defenses, increased susceptibility to infections: these are just some of the symptoms associated with a deficiency in vitamins and minerals.

Vitamins are essential organic compounds that the human body requires in small quantities to maintain health and perform vital functions. Vitamins are crucial for our well-being as they provide energy to the body and ensure the renewal of cells, thus protecting the skin, hair, teeth, and preventing certain diseases. It is important, therefore, to consume a variety of foods to ensure the correct intake of vitamins.

Minerals are essential inorganic substances that, unlike vitamins, do not provide energy to the body but contribute to the normal functioning of certain organs. Nevertheless, minerals are necessary for growth, development, and the maintenance of health.

Vitamin and mineral deficiency: Symptoms

  • Fatigue and irritability

Magnesium is essential for energy metabolism. A deficiency can lead to an increased sensation of fatigue and exhaustion. Magnesium is also linked to mood regulation; in fact, a deficiency can contribute to symptoms such as irritability and anxiety.

  • Bone pain and muscle weakness

Calcium and vitamin D are crucial for the health of bones and joints. A deficiency can lead to pains, sensitivity, and an increased risk of fractures. Low levels of calcium can also contribute to involuntary muscle spasms.

  • Difficulty concentrating and digestive problems

A deficiency in vitamin B can affect memory, concentration, and cognitive abilities. Moreover, these vitamins are involved in the health of the digestive system; a deficiency can lead to disorders such as diarrhea, constipation, or appetite disturbances.

  • Slight hair loss and vision problems

A deficiency in vitamin E may be associated with hair loss, a weakened immune system, and visual impairment. Vitamin E is important for eye health, and a deficiency can contribute to limited vision, especially in low-light conditions.

  • Increased susceptibility to illness

Vitamin deficiency can weaken the immune system, increasing the propensity to contract diseases and infections. Vitamins play a crucial role in supporting the functions of the immune system, which is the body's natural defense system against pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms.

Vitamin and Mineral Deficiency: Remedies and Advice

The best way to address a vitamin deficiency is through a balanced diet:

  • Consume fruits and vegetables to maintain vitamins A, C, and E.
  • Include whole grains such as oats, quinoa, brown rice, and whole grain bread to provide vitamin B.
  • Eat dairy products, fish, and eggs to intake vitamin D.
  • Include nuts and seeds in your diet to obtain vitamin E.

If a balanced diet proves insufficient, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional for the use of supplements available in various pharmaceutical forms: tablets, candies, syrups, sachets, and effervescent tablets.
