Micronutrients and Disease

Micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are required by our body to work properly as each metabolic process in our organs requires micronutrients.

There are many factors that contribute to disease including genetics and lifestyle. As we age we naturally accumulate DNA damage, contributing to disease. Obesity can further increase the risk of diseases including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer incidence. Because insufficient intake of micronutrients may lead to sub clinical deficiencies and poor immunity, our risk of disease can be increased.

In today’s diet the consumption of micronutrients has been reduced. This is due to a shift in diet to increased consumption of processed foods, often higher in calories and lower in nutritional value. There has also been a depletion of nutrients in whole foods that are available to us making it harder to meet our daily requirements.

The body requires varying amounts of each mineral for health but mineral deficiencies can occur due to insufficient intake or poor absorption of minerals from food.The risk of developing a mineral deficiency can be increased if you follow a restrictive diet or have poor appetite.

Symptoms of a mineral deficiency can differ depending on the nutrient that the body is lacking but a weakened immune system and fatigue are two common symptoms.

If you think you may have a mineral deficiency, it is important to speak to your doctor and assess your diet.
