Brittle Hair Or Nails? Headaches Or Cramps? Bumps Or Acne? You Likely Have This Deficiency


Nutrient deficiencies are a common issue for hypothyroid people. Different vitamin and mineral deficiencies can lead to all sorts of health problems, so you need to treat them on time. Here we are going to show 5 common symptoms and the vitamin/mineral deficiency that’s probably the main cause for it:

Acne – Zinc

Zinc is a trace mineral essential to all forms of life because of its fundamental role in gene expression, cell growth and cell replication. And it’s especially important for clear skin. In fact, taking zinc or eating zinc-rich foods is a simple way to cover your bases for clear skin… and there’s a good chance that you’re deficient! Bacteria won’t develop resistance to zinc, so it works even for people who have antibiotic-resistant bacteria on the skin. Zinc reduces inflammatory response to bacteria. When bacteria invade a blocked pore they can cause severe irritation in the area, this is one reason pimples turn red and painful. Zinc can temper this inflammatory response and reduce the effect bacteria have on the skin.  If you consume just 30 milligrams of zinc per day can help you fight against acne. Just ¼ cup of raw pumpkin seeds provides just over half that recommended amount.

White little bumps on back of arm: Essential fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are important for many aspects of human health, including memory, heart health, vision and proper functioning of the central nervous system. Omega-3 fatty acids cannot be made in the human body and must be ingested through foods such as fish or flaxseed. The upper limit of safety for omega-3 is 3 g per day. If you don’t consume enough of this important nutrient, you may experience side effects of a deficiency, including memory problems, mood swings and skin disorders. Little bumps commonly found on the back of the arm are often a result of an essential fatty acid imbalance. Omega 3s is anti-inflammatory, which reduce the inflammation of the bumps and help to dissolve build-up and prevent hardening within the hair follicle, causing them in the first place.

Thinning hair: Iron deficiency

Iron is the pack mule of your body, helping to carry oxygen—not to mention other nutrients—to your hair follicles. Low iron levels or anemia can actually lead to hair loss. Low iron levels or anemia results in less nutrients being delivered to hair follicles via oxygen resulting in hair loss.  The healthier your hair follicles are, the healthier your scalp will be, which results in healthier new hair growth.

Headaches and/or Muscle Cramps: Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium is a powerful nutrient for the function of the nervous system. Also, magnesium can relax your nerves and tense muscles, alleviates muscle cramping and headaches, and can help you fall asleep. However, magnesium deficiency is one of the most common
