What nutrients you don't get enough of

Thursday, September 3, 2020

Take a look at our articles

Americans are notorious for being bad eaters. The convenience of fast food, boxed foods, and other, highly processed foods makes eating quick, simple, and tasty. But, what we gain in convenience, we often sacrifice in nutrients. This is a problem because these nutrients are essential for our bodies’ functions, health, and wellbeing.

In fact, doctors site that many of our health problems arise because of poor diet. However, if we can begin to decrease the bad foods we eat, and focus on including good foods, the table will begin to turn. You’ll not only feel healthier, but be healthier in a variety of ways.

Here is a list of the nutrients that you’re probably not getting enough of that you desperately need (and where to get them):


HEALTHY FATS


Fats! Oh no! Not fats!

Ok. Too many people blush at the word fat. It’s true that there are certain fats that are bad for you. But, make no mistake: eating fats will not make you fat. In fact, fat is formed from an excess of calories in your system that your body can’t convert it to energy or muscle.
Healthy fats are actually amazing for you. They help your body absorb nutrients, protect your heart, provide natural energy, build muscle, and aid recovery. These healthy fats come from nuts, avocados, olive oil, and other natural sources.

VITAMINS A/C/E


Would you believe that your morning orange juice doesn’t get you enough vitamin C? (Actually, orange juice is full of sugar and not that good for you!) We all know that vitamins are essential for a healthy lifestyle, but there are very few people who actually get all they need. Try eating more fruits and green vegetables. Green tea is also a great source of vitamins.

Men should take about 900mcg of Vitamin A each day, while women should take 700 mcg. Vitamin C ranges anywhere from 90mg-75mg, and Vitamin E hits at around 15 mg!

FIBER

This is another nutrient that we know we need, but don’t get enough of! Fiber helps keeps us regular, promotes stomach health, aids the breakdown of other, essential nutrients, and provides energy. Foods like leafy greens, popcorn, oatmeal, and fruits are high in fiber. You should be eating about 25-30 grams each day!  

MAGNESIUM

Magnesium is a nutrient that is desperately needed, but not widely discussed. It has a whole range of wonderful health benefits like boosting exercise performance and energy, assisting lower blood pressure, reducing inflammation, improving mental state, and so much more! Foods like dark chocolate, cashews, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and supplements can help you get your daily dose of magnesium.

Men should be eating around 400mg each day, while women should consume a little over 300mg! Alright! Now that you know which nutrients you’re missing, it’s time to go get them! Good luck.
