TOP 5 SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE B-VITAMIN DEFICIENCY

Administrator


Everyday, we always see to it that we are the best version of ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally.

 

However, there are instances when things don’t go as planned (or how we want them to be) and we end up being feeling down and unwell.

 

Ever find yourself in these situations?

  • You’re feeling so irritable that you get annoyed by even the pettiest of reasons
  • You just met someone, you see them the following day but for some reason you can’t remember their name? (Awkward!)
  • You know you’re getting enough sleep, you’re eating right, your workload is not that heavy but at the end of the day, you still feel overly tired.

If your answer to any one of these scenarios is YES, there’s something we should talk about.

Nutrition.

While any one of these may be caused by intense emotions or stress, you may be overlooking the importance of proper, everyday nutrition.

There is no cause for panic; there is nothing seriously wrong with you. You may just be having B-vitamins deficiency. Here are the top 5 signs that you probably lack these essential vitamins:
