Today, we’re going to look at 16 common signs of nutrient deficiencies. First, let’s look at why you might be deficient in the first place. Here are some of the common causes of nutrient deficiencies:
• Not eating nutrient-dense foods
• Eating foods grown in depleted soils or grown in water (hydroponics)
• Genetic weaknesses
• Low stomach acids
• No gallbladder/gallbladder issues

The following symptoms are 16 signs your body needs more nutrients.

1. Brittle nails–protein deficiency
2. Blue sclera–iron deficiency
3. Pain in right scapula–bile deficiency
4. Tetany (twitching)–magnesium deficiency
5. Flaky, scaly skin–omega-3 deficiency
6. High blood pressure–potassium deficiency
7. Excessive worrying–vitamin B1 deficiency
8. Hyperthyroidism–boron deficiency
9. Hypothyroidism–selenium deficiency
10. Hip clicking/joint clicking–vitamin D3 deficiency
11. Low testosterone–zinc deficiency
12. Slow hair growth–manganese deficiency
13. Premature gray hair–vitamin B5 deficiency
14. Red gums–vitamin C deficiency
15. Feeling weak–sodium deficiency
16. Bruising easily–vitamin K1 deficiency

If you’re deficient in any of the trace minerals like boron or manganese, be sure to take a blend of trace minerals rather than taking them individually.

    00:58 💅 Brittle nails could indicate low protein intake, similar to horses eating excessive carbs to fulfill protein needs.
    01:12 👁 Blue sclera may signal an iron deficiency, visible as a bluish tint due to transparent collagen revealing blue blood vessels.
    02:04 💫 Tetany, muscle twitching, suggests a magnesium deficiency affecting nerve impulses.
    02:30 🩹 Flaky, scaly skin indicates a potential omega-3 deficiency, often due to excessive intake of omega-6 oils.
    03:10 🩸 High blood pressure could stem from potassium deficiency, vital for arterial tone regulation and fluid balance.
    03:39 🤯 Excessive worry might be linked to a B1 deficiency; B1 supplementation can promote calmness.
    04:19 🦋 Boron deficiency could contribute to hyperthyroidism; adequate boron intake aids in magnesium absorption and reduces inflammation.
    04:32 🦠 Selenium deficiency is associated with hypothyroidism; selenium supports thyroid hormone conversion.
    04:45 💪 Joint clicking might indicate vitamin D3 deficiency; vitamin D3 is essential for joint remodeling.
    05:12 🍖 Low testosterone levels could be due to zinc deficiency; zinc-rich foods like red meat can help boost testosterone.
    05:37 🧬 Slow hair growth may result from manganese deficiency; ensure adequate intake of trace minerals.
    05:51 👴 Premature graying might indicate a vitamin B5 deficiency; B5 supports adrenal health and catalase enzyme function.
    06:20 😬 Red gums could signify a lack of vitamin C; reducing sugar intake and consuming vitamin C-rich foods like sauerkraut may help.
    06:32 💪 Feeling weak could be a sign of sodium deficiency; increasing sea salt intake might alleviate symptoms.
    06:46 💢 Easy bruising could indicate a vitamin K1 deficiency; ensure adequate intake of vitamin K1-rich foods.

    😂 Fake friends are like consuming fake nutrients… EASILY RECOGNIZABLE! Makes me think about the poor children in poor countries who are not only fed nutrient deficient foods but also have to live in slave shelters. Thank you for teaching us this inspiring information, Dr. Berg! Health and happiness, everyone! 🙂

    • @jeanpaultongeren125 says:

      yeah.. well we can spend billions on weapons and tanks, and planes for a war that never comes. But while we could feed the poor send planes to drop food and help the by making better treatments

    D3 is my friend, and thanks to your product and recommended amounts: this year ,2024, unlike many years prior around February-March time-frame it was clockwork, the clicking/pain in my joints has ceased.
    Dr. Berg, you just answered a question my thoughts had just yesterday, as to which of your products helped to relieve the pain/clicking of my joints.
    God bless 🙌 🙏

  • @a.williams45 says:

    This is so helpful, Dr Berg. Thank you so much 🙏🏻

  • @anitahernandez1207 says:

    No matter how much effort, I’m amazed by the effects that stress has on a body. Some influencers talk about the potential humans have in strength and vigor and compare that to what they think “ancestors” went through by running from sabertooth tigers. They know so little about real history and the impact of stress on the body. It’s just an image, based on the perspective of fragments of bones and not reality.
