Common Vitamin Deficiencies

Most doctors and dieticians say you should get your nutrients from food sources. However 90 percent of Americans do not eat enough fruits & vegetables according to the CDC. Many people choose to take vitamins to fill in the gaps in their nutrition.

Here is a list of some of the top vitamin deficiencies found in the USA.

Vitamin B12 deficiencies are most often found in older people & vegetarians. As we get older our bodies absorb less vitamin B12. Some symptoms of a Vitamin B12 deficiency include: Weakness, tiredness or lightheadedness. A vitamin B12 deficiency can cause damage to your nerves and can affect memory and thinking.

Symptoms of a Vitamin D deficiency also include symptoms that are similar to a B12 deficiency. Those low in vitamin D can experience the following symptoms: Muscle weakness, pain, fatigue and depression. Those most susceptible to vitamin D deficiencies include people who do not get outside much, people who live in northern climates and people with darker skin (more melanin) have a harder time absorbing vitamin D through exposure to sunlight. 

Early signs of a Magnesium deficiency may include: Fatigue, muscle cramps, mental problems, irregular heartbeat and osteoporosis.  According to one report from Norte Dame University, 75% of Americans are not getting enough magnesium.

According to the Harvard School of Public health fewer than 1 in 5 Americans are eating recommended amounts of fish.  An analysis of 20 studies involving hundreds of thousands of participants indicates that eating approximately one to two 3-ounce servings of fatty fish a week—salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovies, or sardines—reduces the risk of dying from heart disease by 36 percent.
