Why do I have a lot of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acid deficits?

There are a lot of reasons for this question, some are listed below: 

  • If the body is in an inflammatory silent state, then it can require more nutrients to heal the body, resulting in a constant state of deficit. Many different reasons can cause inflammation: long-term consumption of inflammatory foods, long-term consumption of medication, exposure to heavy metals and toxins, imbalanced gut biome, medical conditions, chronic stress levels, and lack of quality sleep, amongst many others. 
  • If you exercise frequently, you may be rapidly using up your nutrient stores and not replenishing them quickly enough. 
  • If you have an underlying medical condition; which may be stopping or blocking the nutrient absorption processes. 
  • If you have hormonal imbalances, hormones are primarily produced by converting nutrients into hormones. 
  • If there are blockages in the body from previous incidents and accidents, causing a weaker prone area of the body, requiring more nutrients. 
  • If there has been chronic and elevated stress, disrupting the cellular nutrient cycle.
  • If cells are burdened with toxins and debris, blocking the absorption process of the nutrients. 

There is only a recommended daily allowance, also known as "RDA" for nutrients, which regulatory bodies have set, to allow for an approximate estimate of how many nutrients we need daily. However, suppose you are experiencing or have experienced any of the above bullet point situations. In that case, your daily allowance may well be higher, causing the deficits as seen in your test results.
