Nutrient Deficiency: The 7 Most Common Deficiencies + 11 "Red Flag" Signs

Written by Nikki Lyn Pugh

Reading Time: 8 minutes

There was a time not too long ago when human beings were able to extract the majority (if not all) of the vital nutrients we needed for good health from the food we ate and our outdoor-focused, active lifestyles.

It is a sad fact that in these modern times, this is no longer the case. In fact, a 2006 study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that food alone doesn’t cut it when it comes to getting all the nutrients the body needs. Of the 70 healthy athletes analyzed by the study researchers, every one of them was deficient in at least three essential vitamins or minerals.

If top athletes (who are oftentimes obsessed with good nutrition) can become nutrient deficient… what does that say for the rest of us more than a decade later?

The 7 Most Common Nutrient Deficiencies in the World

Ironically, the nutrients we’re most deficient in are also some of the ones that are the most important for overall health. Here is a brief rundown of what they are and what they do:

#1 – Iron.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most common nutrient deficiency in the world is iron deficiency as well as the number one cause of anemia in women and children.

Iron is a necessary component of hemoglobin in blood; this substance is what transports oxygen from the lungs via the circulatory system. On the other hand, studies have shown that too much iron may raise your risk of cancer and heart disease.

Experts recommend that individuals who think they may be iron deficient first consider getting a serum ferritin test. Recommended safe levels are usually between 40 and 60 ng/ml.

#2 – Vitamin E.

According to a 2009 report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), a whopping 86% of the American population does not meet the U.S. recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin E. [In perplexing contrast to this government data, diagnosed cases of vitamin E deficiency – i.e., α-tocopherol concentrations of less than 12 μmol/L (516 μg/dL) in adults – is rare.]

Vitamin E is a nutrient that is found in many foods, such as avocados, broccoli, and almonds. In the body, it acts as a powerful antioxidant and immune system booster. Vitamin E is also the “ambassador and translator” for cells, helping them to communicate effectively with one another.

#3 – Vitamin A.

Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin, teeth, bones, and vision. Most importantly, however, vitamin A helps to maintain the integrity of cellular membranes.

Beta-Carotene, the “pre-vitamin” for vitamin A, comes from fruits and vegetables as well as in quality multivitamins. In order for the conversion process from beta-Carotene to retinol (the absorbable form of vitamin A) to occur, a person needs a strong digestive tract and a healthy gallbladder.

According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), vitamin A deficiency is the leading cause of blindness in children worldwide.

#4 – Vitamin D.

Vitamin D gets a lot of press these days linking it to breast cancer prevention. The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) reported back in 2008 on a meta-analysis of four studies examining the link between vitamin D levels in the blood and breast cancer risk. One study found that sufficient levels of vitamin D led to a 80% reduction in breast cancer!

As reported by the AACR:

“An inverse association was observed between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] levels and risk of female breast cancer in four recent observational studies. However, the exact 25(OH)D serum levels associated with a specific level of reduction in breast cancer incidence are still imprecise.”

Vitamin D, which is more of a hormone than a vitamin, is essential for health in other ways too – especially as a helper for other vitamins. For instance, vitamin D is intricately connected to the absorption of vitamin A, vitamin K, and calcium.

The current worldwide epidemic of vitamin D deficiency is caused in part by our modern work and lifestyle choices, which does not leave much time for enjoying the sun outdoors.

#5 – Magnesium.

The latest studies suggest that roughly 68% of all Americans are deficient in magnesium and up to 20% may suffer from severe deficiency.

The list of essential functions in the body that magnesium is responsible for is long. It includes:

  • Nerve and muscle function
  • Genetic synthesis
  • Energy production and balancing
  • Absorption of other key nutrients like iodine and vitamin C
  • Hormonal health
  • Sleep quality
  • Protection from heavy metals like mercury and aluminum

Magnesium deficiency has been linked in studies to higher risk of cancer as well as cognitive breakdown and heart disease.

#6 – Vitamin C.

When you were a kid, you probably heard someone in your family say, “Come take your vitamin C!” whenever you had a cold. That advice wasn’t that far off. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a necessary nutrient for immune system health. It is also important for the cardiovascular system since it is needed for the absorption of iron from food.

Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant which helps in the formation of collagen and wound healing. Surveys from the U.S. and Britain found that vitamin C deficiency occurs in 1 in 5 men and 1 in 9 women.

A 2004 report by the American Centers for Disease Control stated that vitamin C “may be the most important water-soluble antioxidant in human plasma” and that 13% of Americans are notably deficient in it.

Vitamin C must come from either food or supplementation; the body does not create vitamin C on its own.

#7 – Vitamin B12.

There are 8 B vitamins in all and all of them combined influence just about every single mechanism in the body. Getting enough vitamin B12 is especially important for the nervous system and brain health.

According to researchers at Tufts University, about 40% of adults have B12 levels below the normal range. Deficiency in this vital nutrient can lead to depression and other mental disorders, loss of the senses like taste and smell, cognitive decline, anemia, neuropathy in the hands and feet and cardiovascular issues.

Deficiencies in other B vitamins, such as B1, B2, and B6, are also quite common.

Why Are We So Deficient in Key Nutrients?

The body needs essential vitamins and minerals to complete the thousands of second-by-second functions it performs for health. Everything from maintaining good gut balance to keeping your heart pumping is reliant on the efficient break-down and use of nutrients.

“I eat a healthy diet,” you may be thinking, “so I have nothing to worry about, right?”

There was a time when this was true, but no longer. Even if you are someone who eats healthy, organic food every day, you can still have nutrient deficiencies.

First of all, because of poor soil, contaminants in the air and water, and an increasingly genetically modified food supply, the nutrient load of most produce is significantly less than it used to be.

A report published in 2004 by the University of Texas studied the nutritional value of 40 common fruits and vegetables grown in the U.S. between 1950 and 1999. What they found was shocking.

Over those 40 years, all of the foods they studied had “reliable declines” in key nutrients, including calcium, iron, vitamin C, and B vitamins.

The second reason has to do with malabsorption of nutrients within the body itself. Even if you are consuming great quantities of key essential nutrients, your body may not be able to absorb them properly in order to put them to work in your body.

The Most Common Causes of Nutrient Malabsorption

  • Genetic dispositions (and environmental triggers that kick them into gear)
  • Issues with methylation
  • Issues with detoxification pathways
  • Imbalances within the digestive tract itself
  • A combination of these factors and others

All of these factors, including the expression of your genes, are influenced by one thing: lifestyle.

Diet, stress level, exercise level, hydration levels, and the quality of any supplements you are taking all play a part in malabsorption.

The last factor – gut imbalances largely caused by eating a SAD diet (standard American Diet) – are probably the most common reason why nutrient malabsorption occurs.

11 Signs You May Have a Nutrient Deficiency

Nutritional deficiency tests, including blood, saliva, and urine tests, can be very beneficial in letting you know if you are low in a particular vitamin or mineral.

But before you ever send anything to the lab, sometimes you can determine if you have a dietary deficiency by watching for nutrient deficiency symptoms and signs in your own body.

Do You Have Any “Red Flags” for Nutrient Deficiencies?

According to functional nutritionist and best-selling author Dr. David Jockers as well as other experts, the following symptoms may be “red flags” for nutritional deficiencies:

  1. Hair loss
  2. Discoloration or ridges on nails
  3. Dark circles under the eyes
  4. Skin rash or acne that persists
  5. Periodontal disease
  6. Sores on the mouth
  7. Tingling or other sensations in the extremities
  8. Brain fog and other cognitive dysfunction, such as memory loss
  9. Loss of sexual drive/ libido
  10. Depression and/or lethargy
  11. Ongoing fatigue

If You Decide to Supplement, Choose Only the Best

Once you’ve determined you have a nutrient deficiency, the likely next step is supplementation. When deciding on a supplement manufacturer, be aware that many companies still use synthetic ingredients and chemical additives to keep costs (and quality) down.

In fact, it is estimated that up to 95% of all vitamin and mineral supplements out there are at least partially created using synthetic materials!

The happy news is that consumer demand is growing for quality products which utilize the very latest in natural health technology.

If you decide that supplementation in one or more key nutrients is right for you, be sure to do your homework. Choose a whole food brand that is organic and tests their products regularly for toxins including heavy metals and pesticides such as Organixx Multi-Vita-Maxx.

If you’re not getting all the nutrients and antioxidants you need from food, your best source is whole food vitamins. Organixx Multi-Vita-Maxx contains 21 uniquely fermented vitamins and enzyme-activated minerals that are more “bioavailable” and easily absorbed by your body than the synthetic compounds found in most supplements.

    • Sandra,
      We would suggest speaking with a trusted medical professional before starting any new supplements.

    • With all due respect Sandra, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure are caused by easily controllable environmental conditions within your body, and only 5% genetic. Please see a Naturopathic Doctor where you can completely reverse this..

        • I also have vertical nail ridges. I just listen to a podcast from Stephen Cabral. He says it’s probably digestive issues. So I went out and bought some digestive enzymes to see if that helps.

          • Chris, I have nails like that also! I have been taking enzymes for about a year now for stomach issues but the ridges are still there. I have nerve and Arthritis body issues and I also read that ridged nails are one of the clues to that diagnoses.

          • Hi Martha, thanks for your question.

            Discoloration or ridges on nails is a key indicator of a nutrient deficiency. We always suggest consulting with your trusted health care professional to help you determine what you’re deficient in and what nutritional deficiency test would be your best option.

            Nutritional deficiency tests such as blood, saliva, and urine tests can be very beneficial in letting you know if you are low in a particular vitamin or mineral.

            Once you’ve determined you have a nutrient deficiency, the next likely step is supplementation. If you & your doctor decide that supplementation in one or more key nutrients is right for you, be sure to do your homework.

            Choose a whole food brand that is organic and tests their products regularly for toxins including heavy metals and pesticides such as Organixx Multi-Vita-Maxx.

      • This can be a sign of copper deficiency. An HTMA ( hair, tissue, mineral analysis) from Myers Detox can show you your status. Confirm deficient levels with blood testing, and then correct them with the guidance of a good functional medicine practitioner. Using this test, I was able to find out I had toxic levels of mercury and arsenic in my body. I detoxed for a year, and now feel so much better and was able to return to work. I was low in copper (had horrible nail ridges and soft nails) as well as many other minerals. My blood pressure and blood sugars have now returned to normal ranges.

        • How did you find out those deficiency on your body and what did you take to help your bidy i have similar symptoms but my dr say im ok in all my vitamins

      • I have fibromyalgia and have been told by doctor who specializes in this that it is a common symptom of fibromyalgia. It may be a symptom of many other things as well including nutrition deficiencies.

    • Please I implore you research everything is on the Internet look at Mike Adams look at see your jeep green med do your own investigation it’s not every doctor out there knows how to heal you they know how to give you a Band-Aid which are the pharmaceutical drugs look after yourself no one else is going to do it

    • Sandra, always read leaflets that come with medications (especially your Metformin), & if there isn’t one, ask the pharmacy for one. It’s compulsory that they provide it.

    • Sandra, I had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and a few other complaints, when I looked into natural remedies, I was not that confident when I started, but now all is fixed, real natural cinnamon for diabetes and olive leaf and beet greens for blood pressure. Try this, and when your doctor says you are OK, try the Multi-Vita-Maxx. If you ask while you still have the problems, your doctor will tell you to wait until your problems are gone, and this will never happen, and he/she knows it.

    • Sandra
      There is a wonderful holistic Dr..he is on Facebook….you can watch his videos on there or You Tube.He is Dr Gregory Armstrong.He teaches people how to get off Diabetic Medicines and reverse your diabetes.just check him out….you willlove him…he is a wonderful man.

  1. Hello. I am not sleeping well and my son tells me I may need to take HGH, human growth hormone. What can y’all tell me about taking HGH and sleep ?

    • Can’t tell you anything about hgh but can tell you that I haven’t slept well for 40 years. 2 weeks ago I started taking 250 mg of magnesium at bedtime and I sleep like a log. Makes mad that no doc ever suggested trying it.

      • I take a calcium/magnesium combo at bedtime and sleep like a baby. Vivid dreams, the whole shebang! Good luck to you Fritz and Suzette.

    • More likely you are magnesium deficient. Choose a quality magnesium powder and take in the evening when your body best absorbs minerals. CALM is a good brand that I take.

      • I use to use Calm and my Doc told me to stop using it. All the ingredients is not so wholesome .
        For sleep get some lavender essential oil or melatonin ..
        Organic India sleepy tea is my favorite.

    • Hello a simple solution for this is drink sleepy time tea by selestrial.
      Sound to easy it is I could not sleep I was getting sick. Then I came across this healthy tea.
      No other band or tea works. I buy it foodland ir Coles or Woolworths

      • Celestial Seasonings is a brand I used to swear by, as well, and we also used many other varieties of their teas. That was, until I found out they have a lot of toxic chemicals in their tea bags and teas!! We do not touch that brand for ANYTHING, anymore!! I like some of the supplements that contain Melatonin, Valerian and other herbs. Although. for a small percentage of people, there can be difficulty with Valerian, but it works famously for me! There is also another wonderful supplement that will help you to relax better. It’s called Theanine Serene with Relora. That stuff WORKS to calm you down, even during the day; but it you put it with a Melatonin sleep aid before bed, you will sleep amazingly well! 🙂

    • I am speaking only about myself on this one. I had the same problem and stated taking Magnesium every night and it worked for me.

    • For sleep …you are probably magnesium deficient and beef up your B-6. Chelated or Pico magnesium for maximum absorption.

    • Take Arginine and Lysine – these two together can increase HGH significantly.

      I’ve read about certain individuals taking 1200mg of Arginine and 1200mg of Lysine which have helped the production of HGH by up to 695% during sleep. In otherwords, take these two amino acids before bed.

    • Read Dr. David Brownstein’s book on natural hormones. It explains ALL the hormones, including HGH! He explains that in his years of practice with natural hormones, he never prescribed just one hormone. Best results are with a combination and should have tests done and be monitored by a doctor who uses natural hormones from a compounding pharmacy. Also diet and key supplements are also used. Can check your library for this book!!

  2. I need to avoid folic acid. This says it has folic acid it. I assume this isn’t the synethic version? If so you should change it to say folate as you will lose many customers who wrongly assume it has folic acid which many avoid due to mthfr.

    • Kelly,
      There are no synthetic ingredients or preservatives in this product. All ingredients are fermented or enzyme activated, fully bioavailable, non-synthetic from food sources. No ingredients are added to our products other than what is listed on the label. The Multi-Vita-Max formulation derives its folate from natural sources such as Red Lettuce, Green Lettuce, Spinach, Kale, Purple Cabbage, and Broccoli.

      • Then shouldn’t your product label say “Folate” instead of Folic Acid? If I were looking to buy a product on line or over the counter and it stated “Folic Acid”, I would IMMEDIATELY put it back and say to myself “Well, THAT ONE is garbage!” I think you would be better off it you stated “Folate” since that is what is in your product!!

        • Hi Joyce, thank you for your feedback.

          Please know, there are no synthetic ingredients or preservatives in this product. All ingredients are fermented or enzyme activated, fully bioavailable, non-synthetic from food sources.

          We hope this helps and wish you a wonderful day!

          • I agree! It should say folate if it’s folate Folic acid is synthetic. So which one is yours?? If you continue to say folic then it’s synthetic.

          • Hi Fran, thank you for your question & interest.

            We certainly understand where you’re coming from. Rest assured, there are no synthetic ingredients or preservatives in this product or in any of our products. Only Folate is used in our Multi-Vita-Maxx supplement.

  3. All of us are impacted by electro-magnetic interference of our energy fields, thanks to our addition to electronic gadgets, which adds to our nutrient deficiencies. Now when we get unexplained symptoms or fail to improve, we must think environment. The rollout of 5G technology will only make matters worse. Vey few people are talking about this, so we have to educate ourselves.

  4. There are too many ingredients in your formula. I have MTHR and was told not to take the folic acid which is a synthetic.

    • Carol,
      Thanks for the feedback!

  5. I very much like this mixture of vitamins and their preparation. My one complaint:
    why not use real folate rather than synthetic folic acid?

    • Brenda,

    • As my father said, tis better to remain silent than to make a comment and remove all doubt… nothing to say… remain silent

  6. Thank you for this excellent article! and I take this opportunity, Ty Bollinger and staff, to say Thank You for educating us on the TTAC website, Oh how I love y’all … The Organixx supplements sound like an incredible product. Maybe I should stop taking all the vitamins I do and take Organixx instead … for one thing, it takes time to open all those many bottles!

    • Marina,
      We would suggest speaking with a trusted medical professional to speak about your specific situation and how our supplements could affect you.


  8. I have none of the symptoms on your list except possibly slight hair loss. I am 84, strong, healthy, med free, and pain free. I eat a handful of domestic pumpkin seeds every day. I raise my own veggies in raised back yard beds. I use Miracle gro potting soil, and I use only onions and lady bugs for insect control.i always eat either spinach, kale, turnips and greens, or beets and greens every day. I also eat either pumpkin or sweet potatoes, or carrots every day. i drink a lot of whole milk from healthy pasture fed cows.i eat a lt of eggs and beans; I eat salmon twice a week. I do not think i could feel so well if I were nutrient deficient.

    • Bobbie, thank you for talking about what you eat and where you get your food (from your own garden) do you eat any other meat besides salmon? Do you live in the north or south? In the south (South Texas along the coast) we get two growing seasons.

  9. I suffer from bouts of nausea often! My dr. thinks it is fibromyalgia related but I’m not so sure. Thoughts?

  10. Does the fermentation of your multi vitamin- mineral supplement effect sugar levels, or interfere with gut health- how does it make it more absorbable. I just bought your iodine to try and I need a very good multi vitamin and mineral supplement. For me right now it’s crucial I get the very best absorbable one available. Thanks!!

  11. I take Calcium, MACA, Glucosamine Vhodroitim, fish oil, Milk Thistle, Garciria Cambogia, Echinucea, Bitamin E, and Tumeric Curcumin. The only presvriptions I take are Omepraxole and Furosemide as needed.

  12. Just to encourage you, when I started eating eating organic and almost all vegetables and fruits only, I lost a whole bunch of weight and I no longer had blood pressure or sugar diabetes issues which meant I no longer needed medication for either of those.

  13. The real key to nutrients is the ability of ones body to absorb these nutrients and transport them to the organs and cells that need these depleted areas. Likewise, they also need to get to the places where your body is most toxic, so a toxic clean is needed.
    In todays world these discussions are missing. We must first rid our bodies for the toxins that are slowing us down and then provide our bodies what nutrients we are deficient in.
    So what I am looking for is a complete process that takes my body through this process. We also know that drink fresh clean water, and breathing clean air helps to detox the body and organs.
    People need to take the time each day to do these things. Now let me be clear. How do I know the nutrient that Organixx sells actually pernitrate in to the bodies in a balanced manner that over time give back the vitality and energy that is needed.

  14. This vitamin supplement contains broccoli, kale, and other goitrogens..are they formulated in such a way as to not interfere with thyroid health?

    • Kasren,
      We would suggest that you speak with a trusted medical professional about this and how this supplement may affect you.

  15. I’ve heard that follic acid is bad for you and yet it is recommended for pregnancy, why is that?

    • We don’t have more information about this at this time Alexis. This would be a great question for a trusted medical professional.

    • Folic acid is the synthetic version of “Folate”. I’m guessing that you’ve read its “bad” because its typically not naturally derived, but made in a lab. Folate is the natural form of folic acid, so just look for supplements that contain Folate instead. Google folic acid vs folate and you’ll find plenty of articles.

  16. Thank you for such a helpful article – clearly set out and easy to understand what to avoid, look for and how to remedy the problem(s). 🙂

    • My naturopath that I saw before, during and after my 18 rounds if chemo, put me on 2-per-day multivitamin without copper or zinc. He said this was to prevent angiogenesis or the creation of new blood vessels that would supply blood to small tumors.

  17. I’ve just had blood tests and I’m low in calcium, low white blood count and liver function isn’t good. I take Holland & Barratt ‘Superone’ multivitamin and minerals and extra supplements so I’m puzzled as to why I have low calcium.
    I’m having more blood tests today.

    • Just a thought…are you sure you aren’t running acidic? Sometimes a body will release extra calcium to buffer the huge amt. of acid in the body…then it gets excreted. You might want to check on your body pH through saliva and urine pH testing…cheap and it works! Also, unless your pH is very much “in the middle” of the pH scale, there will be certain minerals that will not absorb properly! Try to eat your calcium, but make sure you are taking magnesium as well. You need both, with slightly more Mag. than Calcium. If you just take Calcium from supplements that are not readily absorbable, it can not absorb to places where your body needs it, but can end up causing joint problems and lining the arteries, causing clogged arteries and YOU DON”T WANT THAT!! Vit D and K2 can help with putting the calcium you will take into the right places, though!

    • I do also but my doctor told me to take magnesium to counter the iron caused constipation. I take 1/8-1/4 tsp powdered in water at night. It works.

  18. I want to try all these products for my husband health.. are these products safe with a kidney failure patients whose going through dialysis treatment? What would you recommend for him to take as supplements?

    • Divina,
      We would suggest speaking with a trusted medical professional before taking any new supplements.
      Best wishes to you and your husband!

  19. Thanks for creating what looks to be a great product! Based on some of the comments and my personal preferences, perhaps when the next “batch” is produced, you may consider (if possible) adding more specifics on the label. For example Folic Acid or Folate? B3- niacin or niacinamide? What form of Vitamin K (1 or 2)? I am more inclined to make an investment like this when I know exactly what the nutrients are. Just a thought . . . Thanks for all you do!

  20. I too have a problem with MTHFR. I use Methylated folic acid. I take
    Deplin recommended by my doctor.

  21. Hi I’ve been diagnosed with lymphoma. And now have lumps on neck which could be related to thyroid as I have a very very active thyroid. I have chronic digestive issues (severe diaorreha) unable to tolerate the tiniest fiber or any oils or fats (due to liver/gall bladder). Even natural sugars (fruits) I disagree with. Due to this my diet consists of white bread and basically food with little to no nutrional value. I have all the above signs and deficiencies. I’ve been working alongside a naturopathic doctor (hes been highly recommended) for several months now – who is also now at a lose end with me. On a very good day however I can tolerate chicken with potatoes/carrots/asparagus. Therefore I just wanted to ask would these supplements containing broccoli and kale etc would .. and if so how it will sit well with me or with anyone with digestive issues as you’ve mentioned above ? Also if anyone would pls clarify is glutamine worse for cancers than sugars?

    • Hi Shamsa,
      In reading your message, it sounds like your body really needs digestive enzymes along with probiotics. I am surprised your naturopathic doctor has not recommended this protocol. You might want to see a different naturopathic doctor.

  22. Vaccinations alone play a huge role in vitamin deficiency. Vaccines contain formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum, unborn fetal matter ( listed as “natural ingredients”), genetically modified organisms and more! Big Pharma wants our money, not keep us healthy! Vaccines have been proven to be the cause of autism, mental health issues, depression, auto-immune diseases, cancer and much more! I am a chronic Lyme patient and was misdiagnosed for many years! I also worked at a surgeons office for 3 years, which also required me to receive the flu vaccine 1-2 times a year, (that’s a lot of heavy metals, which kill the gut and wreaks havoc on our micro-biome/good gut bacteria-our centrally located immune system). Little did I know at that time, that I was harming my body more than anything else and noticed my health declined more and more with each administration of the flu vaccine with depression, chronic fatigue, joints pains, brain fog, bi-polar like symptoms, blood sugar issues, etc. I encourage anyone to do their own research! Don’t trust your medical Dr’s! You know how you should feel! Everyone needs to be their own health advocate and take matters in their own hands, find a natural path doctor or Lyme disease specialist, etc. The CDC is corrupt just like other forms of government, and they are the ones who write most of the health professional curriculums, which contain false data! Many former CDC employees have stepped down from their positions and quit their jobs there, because of all the deceit, corruption and misconstrued data they saw first hand to present to the public!! Don’t trust pharmaceuticals or vaccines! Period! Anything to do with Big Pharma is awful for our health! Monsanto, who is the devil of our food and pharmaceutical industry, comes from Hitler decent!!! His ultimate goal is to deceive us and “kill the U.S. slowly!” That’s basically what Hitler stated too, after the U.S. won the war against them! Great resources to refer to are The Truth About by Ty Bollinger, founder of The Truth About and anything by Dr. Joshua Axe (, Jordan Rubin, Eric Zielinski, Ty Bolling, Jonathan Otto ( or Sayer Ji are highly reputable sources!! Check them out on YouTube or their websites. Also, wakeup is another awesome, reputable website for many topics, including geo-engineering our skies, etc. which also have a hug effect on our health! In summary, keep the faith, remember God ultimately has our backs and will not put us through more than we can handle, as His Word promises us! Ask God for His guidance and wisdom in all aspects of your life, including your health, and you will be astonished at what He reveals to you to guide you on your personal journey! God revealed to me last year through Jonathan Otto’s Bible Health Secrets docu-series, what it states in Revelation 18:23; “and the light of a lamp will shine in you no more, and the voice of bridegroom and bride will be heard in you no more, for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.” – English Standard Version. The Greek meaning of sorcery is pharmakiea/pharmaceuticals! That alone is proof enough for me of what to stay away from regarding mine and my families health! May God speak to anyone reading this, and have the same effect on you as well! God Bless! ✝️❤️?

    • Thank you for sharing, agree with these wonderful resources. Will look up about geo-engineering our skies as always felt in my spirit that more then the average person knows (is aware of) is going on!!.

    • Ms. Amy
      I totally agree with ALL your statements
      You are very well informed.
      Hip hip hooray
      Keep spreading the good news✌

    • Love your mahiIf the artificial constructs of modern civilization
      were more in line with mother nature the sheep of the global capitalist system would be a lot healthier.Putting people first not profits.Health care in this day and age should be free.

  23. I notice you did not bother to answer a single comment where cracked and lined nails were concerned. I have those, hair loss, dark circles, tingling in fingers, and fatigue. Which vitamin/mineral deficiencies would this indicate?
    As to your vitamins, the recommended dose I read on the label and here differ. Is there really a 30 day supply at those doses?
    Also, as to the cost, I’m elderly and on such a fixed income that I must have roommates to keep a roof over my head. Also too low an income for senior housing, even the ones which are subsidized. How can someone like me afford your product? Could I reduce dosage so it lasts me 2 months or more and still gain benefit? Even a bit?

  24. Three years ago I had a Gastric By-pass. My hair is getting really thin, with some bald spots. I’m taking two different hair vitamins and nothing seems to stop the hair-loss problem. Do you have any solutions?

    • Hi Stephanie, thank you for your question.

      We’re sorry to hear that you’ve been experiencing hair-loss after your Gastric By-Pass. Have you consulted with your physician to see if you have a nutrient deficiency? If not, we would suggest starting there.

      Hair loss is actually one of the 11 signs of nutrient deficiency. You can always find out by taking a nutritional deficiency test which would include either a blood, saliva, or urine test.

      Once you’ve determined you have a nutrient deficiency, the next step would be supplementation. Finding a high-quality, whole-food-based supplement is a great way to combat nutrient deficiency.

      That is why we highly suggest our Liquid Multi-Vita-Maxx. Liquid Multi-Vita-Maxx is a fast-acting… nutrient-rich… organic LIQUID formula loaded with the critical nutrients your body needs. It’s a highly potent LIQUID vitamin complex formula made from 100% organic whole food sources that have gone through our proprietary fermentation process for maximum bioavailability.

      We encourage you to check out the following pages if you would like to know more:

    • Hi Eve, thank you for your question.

      Hair loss is actually one of the 11 signs of nutrient deficiency.

      The nutrients we’re most deficient in are also some of the ones that are the most important for our overall health.

      Some of those nutrients include Iron, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B12.

      You can always find out if you’re deficient in one or more of these nutrients by taking a Nutritional Deficiency test. Blood, saliva, and urine tests, can be very beneficial in letting you know if you’re low in a particular vitamin or mineral but sometimes you can determine if you have a dietary deficiency by watching for signs in your own body.

      Once you’ve determined you have a nutrient deficiency, the next likely step would be supplementation.

      Supplementation is a great way to combat nutrient deficiency. Finding a high-quality, whole-food-based supplement is key. That’s why we highly suggest our Liquid Multi-Vita-Maxx.

      Liquid Multi-Vita-Maxx is an incredibly, highly potent LIQUID vitamin complex formula made from 100% organic whole food sources that have gone through our proprietary fermentation process for maximum bioavailability.

  25. I said that I had the Gastric-By three years ago, it has really been six. I don’t know why I wrote three. Sorry.

  26. I have been subscribed to auto-ship your VitaMax Vitamins for over 8 months and have been happy with them. However, for the past 2 months they have not been available yet I see they are being promoted here. What is happening? I would like to get my supply. There seems to be a glitch in the system.

  27. Another extremely important vitamin that most people are apparently deficient in is Vitamin K2 which I have recently been looking into more deeply. A test has not yet been developed and that is why it was a forgotten vitamin until fairly recently. People not eating the fermented soybeans called natto could be most likely assumed to be deficient, as it is hard to get enough K2 in our diet. There is a high amount in certain cheeses made with a particular probiotic strain – gouda, Jarlsberg & brie in particular, which is nice!

    K2 works with Vitamin D – D helps absorb calcium and K2 gets it to the right places, i.e. bones and teeth rather than clogging arteries with plaque and causing heart attacks, and having plaque on teeth. It can also help with brain health, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, joints, arthritis, psoriasis, autoimmune disease and inflammation.

    For osteoporosis prevention, Vitamins K2, D3, calcium and magnesium work together and need to be balanced. Other nutrients also help prevent osteoporosis. K2 is also involved in a cell process to prevent cancer.

    If K2 is taken as a supplement, it needs to be MK-7 and not synthetic – non-synthetic MK-7 is normally made from fermented soybean natto but apart from the possibility of GMOs, soy is not a healthy food. The best K2 supplement is MK-7 made from fermented chickpeas (MK-4 is always synthetic and MK-7 can be found as synthetic or non-synthetic). People on blood thinners should not take a K2 supplement. I have been looking for a K2 supplement recently and it is hard to find one that does not have undesirable additional ingredients. Dr Kate Rheaume-Bleue is an expert in K2 and literally wrote the book on it.

    So it turns out that although people are told to take calcium and Vitamin D3, it is dangerous to take these without also having enough Vitamin K2, and calcium is best to come from food – we do not hear about K2 from conventional doctors even though it seems to be a cause of so many conditions.

  28. i would love to get your info, but cannot afford such a high price. why not sell an affordable book that ordinary people can afford. I don’t trust anyone who price gouges.

      I pack all my supplements in the kind of silver-grey bags computer accessories come in. You can also use aluminum foil. That should handle X-rays and maybe irradiation.

  33. Hi! I have numbness all the time in all my toes on my left foot & severe pain in the arc of the same foot for the last few weeks! I would appreciate any advice/suggestions. Thank you

    • Hi Nancy,
      Ask functional doctors to do some baseline testing. It could be different issues. Each person’s body is different when it comes to vitamins and supplements. Some people could have absorbtion issues. It could be toxic or parasite, environmental toxins, household mold, etc. I was recently informed that sleep is the number one lifestyle change, above diet or exercise, that is crucial for the body. I was doing intermittent fasting, down to one meal a day, then ran into trace mineral and electrolyte loss due to flushing of body toxins with hydrating my body with fluids. i was experiencing joint pain. I was recommended to increase it(loss minerals) by simply eating foods with organic sea salt(eating window), adding lime/lemon juice to water during fasting period. I am not sure if anyone has heard of ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. It has tremendous benefits to the body if we start burning keytones and fat instead of carbohydrates. I suggest anyone interested to do some research into it for themselves. I do not like to recommend anything since it would seem like i am selling things.
      Thanks everyone.
