Now, the next big question that often puts us, women, in a fix is – what is this right nutrition all about? And what are the main reasons that cause these deficiencies? Haven’t these questions boggled you over and again?
You eat your daily meals, but still do you feel zapped or sapped? You strictly eat homemade food, but still, you feel your capacity to perform your daily chores has reduced to its nadir. Do you still find your body showing up with these symptoms that point toward nutrient deficiencies?
So where are these gaps? How and why isn’t your body getting the right nutrition?
Chances are, you may have to put the onus on your hectic lifestyle. Yes, these erratic hours, the hush-rush all around, and this 24×7 hasty fast-paced culture and lifestyle we all are learning to evolve with, are often taking a big toll on our mind, body, and health, much before we can realize it. Missing your timely meals or always eating improper or unhealthy foods on the move due to your frequent travel is often the main cause behind your nutritional lags. Inconsistent nutrition can often play silent havoc with your body and only your noisy symptoms can prompt you to realize it.
But what if you may claim to be eating the right nutritious foods and on time? What if you’re one of those rare few who’s been seriously sticking to your new year resolutions and you’ve made healthy and nutritious fruits, salads, and multiple other healthy foodstuffs your conscious choice and a regular diet, but still that inexplicable fatigue, that unwanted hair fall, dull skin and numerous other discomforts in your body are bothering you?
Are you sure your regular meals and your chosen healthy diet foods are adequate for your body and are giving you enough nutrition that your body needs?
Consistency or inconsistency of your meals, sometimes nothing matters when it comes to adequate nutrition that your body may need. Sometimes even your regular diet may fall short and the number of vitamins or minerals present in your foodstuffs may be quite insufficient to meet the daily nutrition requirements of your body.
Wondering how? Yes, it is quite possible. Not every vitamin or mineral may be present in every food you eat, and not always every vitamin or mineral will be present in your food in the desired proportion as required by your body.
Also, whether you know it or not, quite often the digestive system in your body may not be working that efficiently to absorb complete nutrition out of your food or supplements and release it for circulation as required by your body.
Or even sometimes, there are some multivitamins or nutritional supplements you may be consuming with full confidence to stay healthy or overcome your deficiencies, but these multivitamin tablets or health and nutrition supplements may not be bioavailable. Means, these multivitamins or health and nutrition supplements may not be getting fully absorbed within your body. Yes, lacking in their bioavailability factor, these supplements may not be completely breaking down in your stomach and may not be releasing the complete nutrients within your blood circulation. And hence, adequate absorption of these nutrients may not be getting possible within your body, thus supporting your deficiencies to continue or increase over time, despite your regular intake of these health supplements.
And if none of the abovesaid reasons hold true for you, still at times your gradually declining metabolism can also mess up with your digestion or nutrient absorption, leading to severe nutritional deficiencies.
Causes can be numerous, but aren’t all these enough reasons to cause nutritional deficiencies in your body? Enough reasons to keep your health down? And enough reasons to reduce or hamper your daily performance, stake your body stamina, and slow you down?
