vitamin deficiencies that can cause brittle hair and nails is biotin deficiency. According to the National Academies of Sciences,
Engineering and Medicine, individuals who constantly consume raw egg whites over long
periods of time can become biotin deficient. One of the main reasons why consuming raw
egg whites for long periods of time can cause biotin deficiency is because it contains the
substance avidin. Avidin is a binding protein of biotin, which
means when it’s consumed, it reduces biotin absorption. One study they mentioned that was from the
book Present Knowledge In Nutrition explained that adults who were consuming raw eggs for
months experienced hair thinning, loss of hair and brittle nails when they consumed
too much raw egg whites. If you have brittle hair and nails, it may
also be a sign of hypothyroidism, which is a condition in which the thyroid glands cannot
produce a sufficient amount of the thyroid hormone. This condition can also lead to weight gain,
dry skin, paleness, and more. 2 Mouth Ulcers: Have you ever gotten a canker
sore or crack on the side of your mouth? If you have, chances are you may be suffering
from low iron or vitamin B. According to one study published on PubMed, 144 patients in
the United Kingdom who had oral disease were examined in order to try and resolve the controversy
of whether or not levels of hemoglobin, blood cell numbers and indices, and blood film are
adequate in the screening of patients with mouth ulcers. Although the sample was small, researchers
found that patients who were suffering from mouth ulcers were twice as likely to have
low iron levels. In addition, a separate study that can also
be found on PubMed evaluated 60 patients who had recurring mouth ulcers. They found that 28.2% of those patients were
found to be deficient in at least one of the following vitamins: thiamine, riboflavin and
pyridoxine (vitamin B1, B2 and B6). Do you think your body is showing any signs
of the vitamin deficiencies shown in this video so far? Keep watching for some even more surprising
ways your body tells you that it’s low on essential vitamins! 3 Bleeding Gums: Sometimes when you brush
your teeth aggressively, you end up with bleeding gums. Other times you may have a serious case of
bad oral health, but sometimes a diet that is lacking vitamin C can contribute to your
bleeding gums. According to the National Institute of Health,
as vitamin C deficiency progresses, collagen synthesis becomes impaired and connective
tissues in the body become weak. This can cause several health issues to occur,
which includes swollen, bleeding gums and even loosening of teeth, because of how weak
the tissues have become. There are also many other causes of bleeding
gums. Bleeding gums can also be caused by excess
plaque buildup on teeth, which can affect the tissue surrounding the teeth. This causes gums to become inflamed, resulting
in bleeding when flossing or brushing. This can be a sign of Gingivitis, which is
the first stage of gum disease. If you notice that your gums are bleeding
whenever you brush or floss your teeth, consult with your dentist and your doctor. Your dentist can examine your gums and teeth
to rule out gum disease, while your doctor can perform blood work and examine your overall
health to see if it may be a result of low essential vitamins. 4 Poor Vision At Night: If your diet is lacking
vitamin A, you may suffer from night blindness, according to an article published on PubMed. The article elaborated by explaining that
if this symptom is left untreated; it can progress and become xerophthalmia, which is
a condition that can damage the cornea and can potentially lead to blindness. 5 Scaly Patches and Dandruff: Scaly patches
and dandruff can be caused by many different factors. According to the National Academies of Sciences,
Engineering and Medicine, vitamin B6 deficiency can be one of them. According to the book Human Vitamin B6 Requirements,
one of the main causes of seborrheic dermatitis is vitamin B6 deficiency. If you are unfamiliar with seborrheic dermatitis,
it is a common skin condition that mainly affects the scalp. The reason this occurs is that vitamin B6
is important for new cell production. So when there is a disturbance in the cell’s
ability to regenerate and replace themselves, a skin rash can occur. If you notice that you have scaly patches
or dandruff, consult with your doctor to see if you have any vitamin deficiencies. 6 Hair Loss: According to a study published
in the British Journal of Dermatology, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to alopecia,
the autoimmune condition that causes bald patches on the scalp and other areas of the
body. The main purpose of the study was to evaluate
the status of vitamin D in patients who had alopecia areata and the relationship between
vitamin D levels and the severity of the disease. So researchers conducted a cross-sectional
study of 86 patients with alopecia areata, 44 patients with vitiligo, and 58 healthy
controlled patients. The results showed that patients suffering
from alopecia areata had significantly lower levels of vitamin D. The reason this happens
is that the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles. There are many other signs of a vitamin D
deficiency you should look out for if you are experiencing hair loss. This includes getting sick often, extreme
fatigue and / or tiredness, back pain, depression, and muscle pain. If you notice bald spots developing on parts
of your body as well as these other symptoms, you may have a vitamin D deficiency. There are also many common risk factors associated
with a vitamin D deficiency. This includes having dark skin, being obese
or severely overweight, not eating enough dairy or fish, bleeding elderly, staying indoors,
or not being in the sun very often. If you have a vitamin D deficiency, you’re
not alone. it is estimated that roughly 1 billion people
around the world have low levels of vitamin D. 7 White and Red Bumps On Your Skin: If you
ever have red or white bumps on your skin, you may be suffering from keratosis pilaris
– small red or white bumps resembling acne and rough patches of skin on the arms, thighs
and buttocks. Keratosis pilaris is a purely cosmetic condition
that has no negative health effects and normally does not hurt or itch, according to Livestrong. According to an article published by Dove
Medical Press, vitamin A deficiency has been associated with dry skin and follicular hyperkeratosis
(too much keratin in the follicle). So in basic terms, a diet consisting of high
intakes of vitamin A could lead to an improvement in keratosis pilaris. 8 Restless Leg Syndrome: The National Institute
of Neurological Disorders and Stroke states that restless leg syndrome affects up to 10%
of Americans, and women are twice as likely to experience it. According to an article published on PubMed,
there are two possible known causes for restless leg syndrome: CNS dopaminergic abnormality
and CNS iron insufficiency. One study was done with autopsies and intravenous
iron treatment, and researchers found that brain iron insufficiency was linked to restless
leg syndrome. In addition, an article published in The Journal
of the American Society for Experimental NeuroTherapeutics found that the main secondary cause of restless
leg syndrome is iron deficiency. According to the article, the most reliable
body indicator of body stores for iron is the serum ferritin, transferrin, and transferrin
saturation. All three of those are medical values that
help measure the percentage of iron. The article mentions that several studies
have indicated that lower ferritin levels correlate with increased severity of RLS. But once iron deficiency is reduced, the symptoms
improve. If you notice that you are experiencing any
of the symptoms in this video, consult with your doctor for an examination or blood test
to rule out any possible health problems or vitamin deficiencies. If you aren’t sure if you’re getting enough
vitamins, you should speak to your doctor or a professional nutritionist about the types
of foods you should be eating for certain vitamin deficiencies. In addition to regular doctor check ups, you
