ORLANDO, FL. (Ivanhoe Newswire) – If you avoid the sun, have food allergies, or don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, chances are you’re suffering from a vitamin deficiency.

In fact, 46% of American adults don’t get enough vitamin C. According to the Cleveland Clinic, 42% of people are vitamin D deficient, and 90% of us don’t get enough vitamin E.

Consuming too little of these essential vitamins can be dangerous, even fatal. Do you feel weak? Sleeping troubles? Blurry vision? All of these symptoms could be a sign that you are not getting enough vitamins.

Vitamin C is essential for our immune system. It also plays a vital role in joint health and mood and promotes eye health.

One in 20 people don’t get the recommended daily amount, even though many experts believe it’s easy to get enough vitamin C through a healthy diet. An orange or a cup of raw strawberries or broccoli gives you 100% of your vitamin C.

“I’m a doctor and I prescribe drugs, but I always like to take the natural approach whenever possible, and food is medicine,” said Gena Lewis, MD of UC San Francisco.

Vitamin D is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones, but around one billion people worldwide suffer from it. A new study reveals that a lack of vitamin D may be linked to an increased risk of dementia and stroke.

Top foods fortified with vitamin D include salmon, canned tuna, egg yolks, orange juice, and mushrooms.

And how do you get your vitamin E? You can get your recommended daily amounts from foods like nuts, green vegetables, and vegetable oils.

Your body needs it to strengthen its immune system. Some research even suggests that vitamin E may delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, liver disease, and prostate cancer.

To improve the absorption of vitamin supplements, take them with meals containing at least 10 grams of fat.

And keep in mind that an overdose of dietary vitamins is unlikely. However, it is possible to consume too much through supplements, which can lead to negative side effects and harm your health.
