If You Have Thin Brittle Nails, Hair Loss or Insomnia, Start Consuming These

We all lead our lives in a hurry, pacing forward, trying to get by. This is the modern life and we all feel its consequences. In the process of ‘living’ we endure massive amounts of stress, we deprive ourselves of sleep and stuff junk food down our throats, without thinking twice about what this does to our organism.

We just don’t have the time to care for our health, at least not until it’s too late. If only we were to stop and listen to our body, it will tell us everything we need to know. At the first sign of trouble our body signals us, telling us we need to watch out and take better care, we just need to know to interpret them.

Some of the most common symptoms that indicate something is wrong include:

  • Weakened immune system
  • Sleep problems
  • Cravings for junk food
  • Fatigue and low energy levels
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Concentration issues and memory problems.
  • Weight gain and slow metabolism
  • Brittle nails, dull hair and rough skin

  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Iron deficiency
  • Magnesium Deficiency
  • B12 Deficiency
  • Protein Deficiency
  • Impaired Liver Function
  • Impaired Thyroid Function
