      What are the common signs of vitamin deficiency?

      A well-balanced diet that is nutritious keeps your body strong and healthy. In case your body is not getting sufficient nutrients, this shows up in your body in different ways.

      Brittle hair and nails

      Biotin on B7 is a key vitamin that helps your body convert food into energy. When you have a deficiency of this, this makes your hair and nails brittle and you might suffer from thinning hair as well. Other symptoms include chronic fatigue, cramps, muscle pain, and tingling in the hands and feet.

      Mouth ulcers and cracks

      Mouth ulcers which are commonly known as canker sores occur due to deficiencies in iron or B vitamins. Angular cheilitis is a condition where the corners of the mouth may crack, split or bleed. This might be caused by excess salivation or dehydration but may also be due to lack of sufficient iron and B vitamins.

      Bleeding gums

      A diet that is deficient in Vitamin C can cause bleeding gums. This may also cause easy bruising, dry scaly skin, slow wound healing and frequent nosebleeds.

      Vision problems

      A deficiency of Vitamin A can lead to problems with vision at night and may even lead to blindness.

      Scaly patches and dandruff

      Low levels of zinc, niacin (vitamin B3), riboflavin (vitamin B2) and pyridoxine (vitamin B6) in the blood can cause scaly patches and dandruff.

      Hair loss

      Hair loss is a very common sign of nutrition deficiency. A diet that’s rich in nutrients such as iron, zinc, niacin (vitamin B3), linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid and biotin (vitamin B7).

      Restless leg syndrome

      Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a condition that impacts the nerves and generates unpleasant or uncomfortable sensations in the legs. Low iron levels can lead to RLS.

      Red or white bumps on the skin
