Today I want to cover the different signs of a deficiency in trace minerals.

Trace minerals are minerals needed in tiny or trace amounts. A few examples of important trace minerals are zinc, iodine, selenium, and iron.

Trace minerals are essential for enzymes, which are proteins that run the body.

Symptoms of zinc deficiency:
• Hair loss
• White spots on the nails
• Low testosterone
• Diarrhea

Symptoms of iron deficiency:
• Anemia (weakness, fatigue, cold sensation)
• Brittle nails
• Hair loss

Symptoms of selenium deficiency:
• Infertility
• Fatigue
• Hair loss

Symptoms of iodine deficiency:
• Swelling in the lower part of the neck

You might not notice any symptoms right away, but a trace mineral deficiency could contribute to all kinds of chronic diseases later in life. It could even increase your risk of cancer.

The best sources of trace minerals:
1. Seafood
2. Organ meats
3. Eggs
4. Seaweed or sea kelp
5. High-quality sea salt
