Do you have a SE­CRET VI­TA­MIN DE­FI­CIENCY?

Eat­ing your ve­g­ies doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean you’re get­ting all the vi­ta­mins and min­er­als you need, Rosie King dis­cov­ers

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - B+S/NUTRITION -

It’s frus­trat­ing but true that eat­ing a healthy, bal­anced diet doesn’t au­to­mat­i­cally safe­guard us against vi­ta­min de­fi­ciency. The rea­sons for this are wide-rang­ing and of­ten un­ex­pect­edly ob­scure. For ex­am­ple, did you know that stress de­pletes vi­ta­min C stores? Or that there’s a vi­ta­min called K2 that’s es­sen­tial for strong bones? We didn’t ei­ther. So we called on two ex­perts to re­veal some of the key nu­tri­ents we’re most likely to lack, and how to rem­edy it.
