A diet lacking essential and proper nutrients required for your growth inserts certain unpleasant symptoms related to the deficiencies of vitamins and other minerals. The need of the hour is having a know how about them and making a sense to address these issues.
This article reviews all the important signs that appear while you are deficient in vitamins.
1. Bleeding gums
Bleeding gums can be of different reasons, but vitamin C deficiency is one of the participants and it is observed from the fact that vitamin C helps in improving immunity and healing of wounds, preventing cell damage and is one of the best antioxidants.
Body gets deficient in vitamin C so quickly as it is not made by body but diet only, giving this insight that you must maintain it on your own as per your routine habits of taking healthy and fresh fruits (2 pieces at least a day) and vegetables (3-4 portions per day). A report confirmed that vitamin deficiency is low in healthy populations as per their diet. This prolonged deficiency of vitamin may cause tooth loss.
Vitamin C deficiency can pave the way towards other related problems like tooth loss, scurvy which is the weakening of immune system, weakening of bones and muscles and causing lethargy and fatigue. Its common symptoms are nose-bleeding, slow healing of wounds, easy bruising, dry and scaly skin.
2. Red or white bumps on the skin
Red or white bumps, Keratosis pilaris, causes bumps (sometimes with ingrown hairs and corkscrew over them) on thighs, arms, buttocks and cheeks mostly during childhood.
The main cause of this abnormal growth is considered as Keratin excess in hair follicles but the thing to keep in mind is that it is genetic disorder. Keeping these things, an addition is that people with poor-dietary contents of vitamin C and A are more at risk of getting these bumps over their skin.
Certain precautionary measures involve the diet enrichment comprised of fish, egg, milk, meat, green vegetables and colored vegetables followed by fruits. Inadequate intake of this diet is strictly allied with keratosis pilaris.
