Due to our busy lifestyles, it's common to skip meals. A skipped meal naturally isn't a good thing and it's easy for nutrient deficiencies to creep up on you. If you're nutrient deficient, you're going to have less energy, possibly suffer from brain fog and other unpleasant symptoms. Regardless if your diet is pretty healthy, some nutrients we simply don't get from food on a daily basis. Additionally, some people have a hard time absorbing certain nutrients due to hormonal imbalances or altered gut bacteria.
There was a study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition that looked at 70 athlete diets. Every diet was deficient in at least three nutrients. Some of the athletes were deficient of over 10 micronutrients. And we're looking at athletes here, who are way more likely to have a "balanced diet" in comparison with a regular person! The most common deficiencies were determined to be: iodine, vitamin D, zinc, vitamin E, calcium.
Based on this research and tips of a renowned biohacker and human performance coach Dave Asprey, I came up with the infographic to help you address your dietary deficiencies.
I would also recommend purchasing these supplements separately, since multi-vitamins are usually low quality and additives in them make it less likely for you to absorb the nutrients. I've pre-loaded a cart for you and all you have to do is click on it. You're welcome!
