In order for your body to function healthy, you need to make sure you're consuming the right amount of essential vitamins in your everyday diet.
And just so you know, your beloved chicken-and-broccoli Chinese take-away platter at 1.45am does not suffice!
So if you're not 100 percent SURE you're meeting your daily requirements of these vitamins; here's a list of red flags you need to look out for.
Signs you need:
- Dry eyes
- Scaling skin
- Dry hair
- Poor night-time vision
Vitamin A encourages healthy cell production and heals wounds, as well as boosting your immune system.
- Impaired wound healing
- Prone to bruising
- Bleeding gums
Vitamin C has an antioxidant that protects against illnesses such as heart disease and asthma.
- Softened bones
- Infectious to diseases like the flu
There are no clear signs of vitamin D deficiency, however, being out in the sunlight, eating enough almonds and fatty fish are certainly a great start.
