Researchers have identified three major nutrient deficiencies, that are commonly lacking in modern diets & lifestyle.
1. Vitamin D: This nutrient is produced by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight, but many people don't get enough sun exposure or have low levels due to other factors such as wearing sunscreen or staying indoors. Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to a range of health problems, including weakened bones, compromised immune function, and depression.
2. Omega-3 fatty acids: These essential fats are important for brain health, reducing inflammation, and supporting heart health. However, many people don't consume enough omega-3s, which are found in fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel, as well as in nuts and seeds like chia and flax.
3. Magnesium: This mineral is involved in hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body, but it's estimated that up to 80% of people may be deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is found in foods like leafy greens, nuts, and whole grains, but factors like soil depletion and modern agricultural practices can impact the amount of magnesium available in our food supply. Low levels of magnesium have been linked to a range of health issues, including anxiety, insomnia, and muscle cramps.
Sometimes supplementation is required to reach optimal levels with focus on increasing your dietary levels.
