How do you know if you are lacking nutrients in the foods you consume?
There can be many reasons we are lacking in certain nutrients from the foods we consume. It may be due to over processing, lack of nutrients in our soils, pollutants in the environment or stress factors inhibiting our ability to absorb nutrients etc.
Some symptoms may include but are not limited to the following: Brain fog, headaches, lethargy, muscle cramps, sluggish metabolism. The best way to determine if you are lacking in nutrients is through hair mineral analysis or blood testing. A well rounded diet can definitely help supply a balance of nutrients and is a good start to combatting nutrient deficiencies. Focus on green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, wholegrains, seasonal fruit (limit the fruit with high fructose content) fish, and lean meat. Where possible, cut back on processed foods. If a food label is full of things you can’t read or pronounce then maybe your digestive system will have the same challenge assimilating it.
