    You hear a lot about vitamins and supplements and their great health benefits. But do you know the scary things that can happen when your body is lacking one of more of these key nutrients?
    Check out our list of the top 11 vitamins and supplements to see what ailments await you if you’re lacking a key nutrient like calcium or vitamin C.
    It may not paint a pretty picture, but it is information that you and your family need to take preventative action now.
    Already ailing from one or more of the following afflictions? You can start reversing your ailments by starting a vitamin and supplement program now.
    B-Vitamins (B Complex)
    Without adequate vitamin B complex, you can experience one or more of any one of these symptoms:
    - mental problems
    - heart palpitations
    - heart arrhythmias
    - fibrillation
    - indigestion
    - chronic fatigue
    - chronic exhaustion
    - paranoia, vague fears, fear that something dreadful is about to happen
    - nervousness
    - ADD (attention deficiency), inability to concentrate, irritability
    - feeling of uneasiness
    - thoughts of dying
    - easy agitation, frustration

    - rashes

    Calcium
    Without an adequate, constant supply of calcium your bones become weaker and develop tiny holes. These “porous bones” lead to osteoporosis. A Surgeon General report warns that by 2020 half of all Americans older than 50 will be at risk for fractures from osteoporosis and low bone mass. Populations most at risk of a calcium deficiency are post-menopausal women.
    Coenzyme Q10
    CoQ10 levels decrease with age and are low in patients with chronic diseases such as:
    - heart conditions
    - muscular dystrophies
    - Parkinson's disease
    - Cancer
    - Diabetes
    - HIV/AIDS
    Fish Oil (essential fatty acids)
    - hardening of the arteries (buildup of atherosclerotic plaque)
    - breast cancer
    - diabetes
    - heart disease
    - depression
    - memory loss
    - acne
    - aging
    - allergies
    - arthritis
    - asthma
    - high blood pressure
    - obesity
    - stroke
    Folic Acid
    Folic acid is a B vitamin that helps the body make healthy new cells. A lack of folic acid can lead to:
    - major birth defects of baby’s brain or spine
    - heart disease
    - stroke
    - cancer
    - Alzheimer’s disease
    - anemia
    - weakness
    Glucosamine
    When you have a glucosamine deficiency, cartilage hardens and bone spurs develop which leads to deformities in the joints. Your mobility becomes limited and osteoarthritis develops.
    Iron
    A deficiency of iron limits oxygen delivery to cells, resulting in fatigue, poor work performance, and decreased immunity. Having iron deficiency anemia may cause you to feel tired and often look pale. Iron deficiency anemia is common, especially in women. One in five women and half of all pregnant women are iron deficient. You can usually correct iron deficiency anemia with iron supplementation.
    Magnesium
    Magnesium is needed for more than 300 body reactions. Even a mild deficiency causes:
    - sensitiveness to noise
    - nervousness
    - irritability
    - mental depression
    - confusion
    - twitching
    - trembling
    - apprehension
    - insomnia
    - muscle weakness
    - cramps in the toes, feet, legs or fingers.
    Vitamin C
    - tiredness
    - weakness
    - sore muscles
    - bleeding gums
    - wounds that don’t heal quickly, if at all
    Vitamin D
    - bones become thin, brittle or misshapen
    - rickets for children
    - osteomalacia in adults
    - osteoporis (vitamin D works with C to strengthen bones)
    - inflammation
    Vitamin E
    - destruction of vital red blood cells
    -weakened immune system
    In extreme cases vitamin deficiencies can even lead to death.
    If you're concerned you may be lacking some essential vitamins thanks to bad eating habits, then a vitamin supplement can be a good way to fill the gaps. Try a daily multivitamin supplement and you might just be surprised at how much better you feel overall.
