How To Get Enough Vitamins-When Food Is Not Enough

Sharing is caring!

When Foods Not Enough

For many of us today getting enough nutrition just by our food(s) in our diets is pretty much impossible, if you consumed enough food to get the nutrients you require you would gain a ton of weight. This would not be healthy for you, so what is our options left to make up what we are lacking in our diets. Dietary supplements is the answer to our problem, what about dietary supplements? These are not a drug, they are considered a food additive. These are used to provide us with the nutrients we are lacking from our diets, first lets look at what foods will give us what nutrients you require to be your best. Possibly you can make some diet changes, this would be the first step I would recommend before adding any supplements.

Vitamin Health Benefits

All these together provides the following health effects, growth development for your skin, bone and muscle. This is why it is so important for children to be getting enough of all of these for proper growth and development as they grow up, when they do not they will suffer with a variety of problems in any of these areas depending on which ones they have a deficiency.

Once you have grown into an adult these are still very important for the maintenance of your cells, tissue, organ functioning and even your respiration system. We all do take for granted how these do so much for our bodies, until we experience a deficiency we do not realize how serious having the correct levels of vitamins really are.


Deficiency Causes

The most common causes of deficiency is our health problems, especially people with digestive system problems experience deficiencies. The reason for this is people with digestive system issues do not absorb the vitamins from their foods very well, people with such issues almost always experience deficiencies and need to add nutritional supplements to their diets. Other common causes are smoking, alcohol and prescription medications. Again I recommend you to have your physician test your levels before adding a supplement, especially if you have a digestive system issue or smoke and drink regularly.



















Most Common Deficiencies

  • Thiamine

  • Niacin

  • Vitamin C (Scurvy)

  • Vitamin D (Rickets)

  • B12


I urge you to take this seriously, deficiency has been linked to a number of health diseases and disorders. If your experiencing any of these symptoms you have a severe deficiency and should consult a physician immediately, the most severe symptoms are

  • Nausea

  • Diarrhea

  • Vomiting

  • Extreme Severe Fatigue

  • Disorientation

  • Hair Loss

  • Dizziness

  • Severe Unexplained Anxiety

  • Severe Unexplained Depression

  • Suicidal Thoughts


Final Thought’s

I suffered for a very long period with severe deficiencies, I had many of the symptoms above and my physician’s had no explanation for my symptoms. Again I recommend if you feel you might have any deficiency, have your physician take a regular simple blood test to check all your vitamin levels. Without a blood test to confirm which vitamins you are deficient in, their is no way you should add any of these supplements in your diet.
