Story at-a-glance -

  • The most common nutrient deficiencies are vitamin D, omega-3s, magnesium, vitamins A, E and B12, iodine, calcium, iron and zinc
  • Because many factors contribute to your body’s ability to derive nutrients from the food you consume, you may eat a healthy diet and still lack proper nutrition
  • Changes in animal feed, climate, farming and food-processing methods, soil conditions, water quality and weather patterns, as well as increased use of genetic engineering and toxic pesticides, can have a negative effect on the quality of food available

  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies often can be difficult to identify because you may not develop symptoms until the deficiency has become quite pronounced
