Have you ever heard the term “micronutrient deficiency”? If not, you’ve probably experienced it but didn’t know that that’s what it was.
Micronutrient deficiency is the sustained insufficient supply of nutrients and vitamins needed by the body to function.
Micronutrients are essential nutrients that the body needs in small amounts in order to function at its optimal. These nutrients may be needed in small amounts, however, their impact on one’s overall health is crucial.
Micronutrients perform various functions such as facilitating the production of enzymes, hormones and other substances needed by the body for normal growth, function and development. A deficiency in these nutrients can lead to several health problems including tiredness and fatigue.
Deficiencies in nutrients such as iron, vitamin B2, magnesium, vitamin B3, and others have been linked to fatigue and tiredness. Micronutrient deficiency can be caused by a variety of factors such as inadequate intake, poor absorption due to diseases, a poor diet, poverty, and a lack of access to nutritious food.
Several methods have been implemented to address this problem, methods such as food fortification, the intake of supplements and dietary diversification. Supplementation involves providing individuals with nutrient supplements in the form of pills or powders, a good example of supplementation would be the McNab’s SuperCharge Tabs.
The SuperCharge Tabs contain 31 vitamins, minerals and herbs. The Tabs contain vitamin B, magnesium and vitamin C which are all essential for combating tiredness and fatigue.
Micronutrient deficiency is a serious problem that affects many people around the world, particularly those in developing countries. It is important to address this problem through the various interventions to ensure that everyone is healthy and functions at their very best.
