Are You Getting Enough Vitamin B Complex?
The following list of symptoms is designed to help you to recognize deficiency of Vitamin B Complex:
• Fatigue, exhaustion, no energy, rest doesn’t help
• Skin eruptions
• Muscular weakness
• Memory loss
• Cracks at corners of mouth
• Mouth ulcers
• Dry, cracked lips
• Smooth, sour tongue
• Fissured tongue (cracked down center or sides of tongue)
• Taste buds at tip of tongue enlarged, red and sore
• Red, greasy skin of face, especially sides of nose
• Rough, pimply skin on upper arms and thighs
• Red, itchy rash on genitals
• Bloodshot, gritty sensitive eyes
• Pale complexion
If you answer “yes” to several (3 or more) of these symptoms, you are a likely deficient in vitamin B complex. See your nutritionist for the best foods and supplements to correct your deficiency.
The Vitamin B Complex is found in the following foods: whole grains, nuts, meats, eggs, oranges, dried peas and beans, liver oysters, milk, cottage cheese, whey, brown rice, seeds (pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower), blackstrap molasses, and brewer’s yeast.
Not surprisingly, many American teens are deficient in Vitamin B complex. They eat too many refined carbohydrates (pizza, snack foods, white bread), drink too much sugary soda, deal with hormonal imbalances and extraordinary stress by using stimulants, both legal (caffeine & sugar) and illegal and they don’t get adequate sleep.
This is a recipe for the worst of the symptoms listed above.
