5 Signs to show you Have Vitamin A Deficiency

 Vitamins, or a lack of vitamins, can make a huge difference in how you are feeling day in and day out. Here are some common signs that you are lacking something, along with ways to deal with, and hopefully rectify, the problem.
Inspired by Life-hack,Here are some of the most common vitamin deficiency you may not be aware of.

1. Mouth cracking at corners
Your body lacks Vitamin B (specifically B2, B3, and B12,) zinc, and/or iron.
You should eat more salmon, eggs, tuna, clams, and more seafood to give your body a boost. Vegetarians can eat lentils, legumes, peanuts, dried tomatoes, sesame, and chard.
An important note: Vitamin C should be taken with iron in order to boost effectiveness. Vitamin C sources include broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, red pepper, etc.

2. Rashes on skin and hair loss
Your body lacks zinc, Vitamin B7, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K.
You should eat more dried fruit, pumpkin seeds, whole grains, dairy products, avocados, button mushrooms, raspberries, and bananas.
An important note: Vitamin B7 levels are sometimes affected negatively by eating a lot of eggs. The protein in eggs keeps this vitamin from being absorbed.

3. Acne on cheeks, arms, and upper legs
Your body lacks Vitamin A and Vitamin D.
You should eat less saturated and trans fats.
You should eat more fish, flax seeds, dried fruits, almonds, walnuts, carrots, sweet potatoes, and red peppers.
An important note: sometimes people find the acne to be so painful that they have to pop the small bumps—avoid this.

4. Burning, itching, and numbness in extremities
Your body lacks Vitamin B (B6, B9, and B12).
You should eat more asparagus, spinach, green veggies, legumes, eggs, and seafood.
An important note: shortages of these vitamins can affect the nerve endings in skin. Additionally, depression, fatigue, exhaustion, anemia, and hormonal imbalances are caused by this same deficiency.

5. Cramps and pains in feet/legs
Your body lacks potassium, calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin B.
You should eat more bananas, hazelnuts, almonds, pumpkin, cherries, apples, broccoli, grapefruit, cabbage, dandelion, and spinach.
An important note: these levels are affected when a new exercise regimen is started. The sweating allows the water-soluble vitamin levels to drop. Don’t stop working out. Instead, eat more of the recommended foods.
