ORLANDO, Florida. – If you avoid the sun, suffer from food allergies and do not consume enough fruits and vegetables, you are likely to suffer from a vitamin deficiency. In fact, 46% of American adults do not get enough vitamin C. According to the Cleveland Clinic, 42% of people are deficient in vitamin D and 90% do not get enough vitamin E. Too little vitamin these essential vitamins can be dangerous or even deadly.
Do you feel weak? Sleeping troubles? Blurry vision? All of these symptoms could be a sign that you are not getting enough vitamin C.
Vitamin C is essential for our immune system. It also plays a vital role in joint health and your mood – and supports 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 simply through a healthy diet. An orange or a cup of raw strawberries or broccoli gives you one hundred percent 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,” says Gene Lewis, MD of the University of California, San Francisco.
Vitamin D is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones, but around one billion people worldwide are deficient in it. A new study reveals that a lack of vitamin D may be linked to an increased risk of dementia and stroke. The best 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, like broccoli and spinach, 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 ten grams of fat or more. 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.
