What are the symptoms of vitamin deficiency?
The vitamins that are often lacking in the body are in general the water soluble ones (vitamin C and vitamin B) because the body eliminates the excess. Fat-soluble vitamins are seldom absent. Our complete study on each one of the vitamins demonstrates the benefits of each in our body, how we get them out of eating, their source, symptoms produced by its deficency and their potential toxicity when used as supplements.
