Springtime is characterized not only by the sound of drops, warm wind and sun, but also by a lack of vitamins. Exacerbation of chronic diseases, mood swings and frequent fatigue can be signs of vitamin deficiency.
Most experts agree that in the rarest cases the body lacks a certain vitamin. Usually we need a whole complex of nutrients.
For example, a person chose the path of vegetarianism and abandoned animal products, then he is clearly experiencing a deficiency of vitamins A, D, E and biotin. And if the diet lacks plant foods, then he urgently needs vitamins of group C and B.
If we expand the circle of “suspects” and recall the end of a long winter, we can say that we are all not immune from vitamin deficiency.
What signs are typical for a seasonal “sore” and what needs to be done to protect yourself from a lack of vitamins, read the Sputnik help.
Vitamin A – is responsible for the health of the skin, hair and teeth. Where to look: fish, seafood, apricots.
Vitamin B – is responsible for metabolism, nervous and cardiac systems, protects hair, skin and nails, improves eyesight and stimulates appetite. Where to look: rice, eggs, broccoli, yeast, meat and dairy products.
Vitamin D – protects against colds. Where to look: liver, fish, eggs.
Vitamin C – lowers cholesterol, reduces exposure to allergens. Where to look: rosehip broth, sweet pepper, blackcurrant and sea buckthorn.
Vitamin E – protects cells from free radicals, positively affects the reproductive and endocrine systems, and slows down the aging process. Where to look: vegetable oil, nuts.
First of all, pay attention to your diet, you may have ruled out especially important foods. And instead of immediately rushing to the pharmacy for a complex of vitamins, consult your doctor. Only a specialist can carry out certain tests, identify a lack of nutrients and draw up a detailed plan of action.
Take care of yourself!
