16 Signs You Have a Nutrient Deficiency

Trying to eat a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly are the two best ways to ensure that your body is functionally optimally, inside and out. Unfortunately, most Americans during some point in their life will find themselves deficient in certain nutrients, which their diet just doesn’t provide. Many people find that their symptoms are so minor that they live with them for a long time before they do anything about them.

Here are few ways that your body may communicate to you that it isn’t getting the necessary nutrients. Next time your body starts displaying any of these signs, pay attention and modify your diet accordingly.

Feeling unusually tired or fatigued 

This is a common symptom, and it can be terribly hard to recognize. After all, even little changes in our schedules can leave us feeling tired and generally off.

However, if you’ve been noticing a pattern of tiredness at odd times of the day, or fatigue after performing even the most basic functions, you may have a deficiency of several different nutrients, including calcium, vitamin D, or iron.
