Nutrition is such an important part of our daily lives in order to be healthy. We need to begin living a healthy life by eating right. You must have heard of a balanced diet a lot in the recent past because everybody has gotten so health conscious these days! You see people exercising and eating right to keep their weight in control.
With the rush culture we have these days, we end up skipping a nutritious meal.
Our body’s metabolism is so quick that we often run out of energy and feel exhausted. We prefer eating food items on the go and gain some energy which gets used up quickly. With a rush culture that we follow, we lose out on a lot of nutrients which begin to affect us in the long run.
Here are 5 important nutritional challenges that you face every day:
The deficiency of minerals and vitamins go undetected and only cause an alarm when the levels drop drastically. One needs to be in tune with their body’s needs and other nutritional requirements.
Calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc are some essential micronutrients that nourish the body. Deficiency of any of these nutrients will lead to serious health consequences. It starts off with a feeling of nauseousness and fatigue and it could escalate to serious conditions like brittle bones, anaemia, irregular rhythm of the heartbeat which ultimately leads to death.
Vitamins help in the maintenance of the body and perform different functions. Hence it is essential to consume minerals and vitamins every day. The deficiency of vitamins and minerals occurs due to lack of fruit and vegetable intake in our diet. Other factors that affect our vitamin levels are - dieting, alcoholism, obesity, which play the devil’s role in disturbing the vitamin levels in the body.
Proteins are like energy reserves in our body. They provide us energy when we’re tired. So, if you find yourself feeling moody, tired and extremely tired by the end of the day, you might have a protein deficiency. A stinging pain in the joints, muscles, difficulty in sleeping at night; everything causes us stress. Once we use the emergency energy left, we get even more tired. So, eating proteins in the form of milk, meat and other dairy products is essential to regain the lost proteins.
Fibers are important for your body especially when it comes to taking care of your bowel movements. Lack of this nutrient can result in a poor digestive system, excessive weight gain, poor blood sugar control, and other cardiovascular diseases.
Iodine is essential when it comes to the normal functioning and maintenance of the thyroid levels and hormones in the body. It helps in the development of brain and bone maintenance. They keep the metabolism in check too! Iodine deficiency is known to be common among kids and it causes goitre.
It makes an individual gain weight and causes shortness of breath!
