Hey, folks. Have you ever noticed the little white spots on your nails? Or frequent leg cramps and tingling? Bleeding gums while brushing your teeth? All of this is due to vitamin deficiencies in our body. Let’s find out what symptoms are indicative of specific vitamin group deficiencies.

Risk groups.

For starters, let’s look at which groups of people are most likely to suffer from vitamin deficiencies.

  • Older people.
  • Vegetarians.
  • People suffering from alcoholism.

The tongue is dark red, most likely telling us about vitamin B1 deficiency.
Weakness, fatigue and increased irritability – lack of B vitamins.
Bleeding gums during teeth cleaning or contact with solid food, resulting in vitamin C and P deficiency.
