Many people neglect breakfast, skip lunch: in a hurry about their business and believe that nothing bad will happen – for dinner they will eat off. However, this approach leads to avitaminosis, because the body needs nutrients throughout the day.
Not eating fresh fruits and vegetables
Everyone knows that fruits and vegetables are rich not only in vitamins, but also micronutrients, fiber and antioxidants. Even eating one apple a day, you help your body make up for the lack of important nutrients
Very often, wanting to lose weight, people begin to eat unbalanced, and even refuse to eat at all. Meanwhile, caloric products also contain essential vitamins and minerals. Excluding one product from the diet, it is necessary to find him an equal replacement in content of vitamins and minerals.
Excluding animal foods, vegetarians make their diet scarcer and put themselves at risk of deficiency of vitamin D, B vitamins, calcium and saturated fatty acids. If this is the case, be sure to include plant-based analogues that contain these nutrients in your diet.
Short daylight hours
Half the year in Russia is dominated by grayness and semi-darkness, and so important vitamin D is synthesized with the help of sunlight. We should not forget to replenish its levels by taking supplements.
Inadequate intake of fermented dairy products
Cheese, yogurt, and kefir are very rich in calcium. If you limit consumption of dairy products, there is a risk of vitamin D deficiency: calcium is necessary for its absorption in the body. Lack of calcium may result in loss of hair and broken nails, dental problems, bones becoming brittle.
During pregnancy, a woman should get much more nutrients, because the fetus actively uses them for growth and development. During this period, it is good to take special vitamin complexes for pregnant women
If the diet is balanced, regularly taking courses of vitamins, but signs of vitamin deficiency still make themselves felt, it makes sense to be examined – this may be a sign of disease, both minor and severe, including cancer.
