All About Vitamin E Health Benefits

My recent visit to the doctor’s clinic for the yearly health check-up revealed a few minor deficiencies. Probably the reason for lethargy, low immunity, and the hair fall too. He prescribed a daily dose of multivitamins, iron, and recommended a healthy balanced diet. I am a woman in my late 30s and according to the expert, time to begin with these micro-vitamins.

What comprises a healthy balanced diet?

Healthy eating means eating a variety of food which is rich in nutrients and vitamins. A balanced diet of commonly required macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients to match up the body needs. Nutritional deficiency can lead to various health-related problems. Such as lower immunity, skin problems, digestion disorders, and some other serious issues.

Our body absorbs nutrition from the diet that we intake, and if we do not consume a well-balanced diet we fall behind on health and fitness. The symptoms of vitamin deficiency may vary from person to person, but the most common ones are:

  • Lower immunity
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Menstrual problems
  • Palpitations
  • Mood swings
  • Irritation
  • Depression, etc.

A well-balanced diet, healthy lifestyle, light exercise and a good intake of water is the right way to stay fit and happy. However, we cannot ensure these if our homemade healthy food isn’t providing the right requirement of nutrition. That’s when the need for health supplements comes into the picture.

Even when it comes to healthy options, make sure you know the right measurement and composition of it.
