6 Common Things In Vitamin and Nutrient Deficiencies and How To Correct Them

Posted on
  1. B vitamins.

There are a lot of B vitamins, so it can be confusing to know which ones are the most important and what combo you might need to take. Each one is different, but they all work together in the body to support energy production and neurological function. Taking a blend, like Thorne’s Basic B-Complex takes out all the guesswork. It contains the right balance of all eight essential B vitamins, plus choline (which is usually grouped with the B vitamins).

  1. Vitamin K.

Most of you are familiar with the importance of vitamins C, D, and maybe even E, but what do you know about vitamin K? If you’re like most of the world, probably not a lot. This underrated nutrient is important for everything from artery elasticity and bone mineral density to metabolism. Taking a high-quality vitamin K supplement can support all of these aspects of your health and more.

  1. Omega-3s.

The war on fat is officially over. More scientists and health experts are getting behind the health benefits of the wonderful fats in avocado, coconut oil, nuts, and seeds every single day. But of all the beneficial fats we should be consuming, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (found in fish oils) might be the most important. Eicosatetraenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are the two primary omega-3s that support healthy heart and brain function, a healthy inflammatory response, and healthy blood sugar and triglycerides—just to name a few.
