REAL LIFE SENZU BEANS: The Most Common Nutrient Deficiencies And Their Optimal Dose
Digging into the research for this one took more time than I thought, but here is a guide to the most common deficiencies and the amounts recommended by key practitioners for great health (generally speaking). This is quite a complex topic so the roles outlined for each deficiency are what I felt was their most prominent functions rather than a comprehensive list.
Most of these deficiencies can be solved easily with diet. Here are some of the sources for each common deficiency:
One thing you'll notice with this infographic is that it does not discard any food group and includes meat, fruit, wholegrains, starchy carbs, fish, and a whole bunch of vegetables.
Once again, this isn't a comprehensive list and many items can be swapped out with similar foods from the same families. Sweet potato and squash have the same potassium levels, Kale and spinach have extremely similar nutrients, chicken, turkey, and lean beef all share the same protein amounts etc.
Some quick notes: Dairy calcium is better absorbed than any other form as is the iron from red meat. If you are vegetarian, Vitamin C helps you absorb the iron from plant sources.
Any compound you can't easily get from your diet such as Vitamin D, Magnesium etc I would consider supplementation. Check the infographics for the amount you need and voila.
That's all for now folks, be more shonen
