Warning Signs of Vitamin Deficiency

Warning Signs of Vitamin Deficiency

Vitamin deficiencies are surprisingly common. How are we supposed to know if we are lacking in essential nutrients? What are the warning signs that we are missing a vital nutrient? Familiarizing ourselves with the common symptoms of a vitamin deficiency and a yearly visit to our doctor to check our levels is essential to keeping our health on track.

Take a look at these warning signs that you might have a vitamin deficiency.

  • Mouth Ulcers: If you frequently have mouth ulcers, it could signify a vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 keeps our nervous system healthy, makes red blood cells, and release energy from food.
  • Dry Eyes: If you suffer from dry eyes, it could indicate a Vitamin A deficiency. Vitamin A helps protect the surface of the eye while keeping it lubricated.
  • Dizziness: If experiencing being dizzy, it may signify you are low on vitamin B12. Vitamin B deficiency can lead to anemia, reducing the number of healthy red blood cells in the body and disrupting oxygen flow to the brain.
  • Heart Palpitations: Some people who experience heart palpitations could be low on folate. Folate, also known as vitamin B9, is essential for healthy red blood cells.
  • Skin Irritations and Hair Loss: A lack of riboflavin, also known as B2, and zinc may manifest in itchy, flaky, and dry skin. Hair loss is a common culprit of these vitamin deficiencies.
  • Sleep Issues: Missing out on restorative and restful sleep could indicate a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is one of the most common vitamin deficiencies, with many still believing sitting out in the sun is enough to raise your vitamin levels.

If you are experiencing signs of vitamin deficiency, consider receiving a Beautivy Medspa “ORIGINAL,” an intravenous vitamin and mineral formula for overall health. Please call  (800) 631-3822.
