Our body is a perfect mechanism where lots of things happen at the same time. And sometimes it gives us signs that it needs help which, if ignored, can lead to health issues.
Bright Side would like to tell you about some signals you should always take note of.
. Insomnia, irritability, and leg cramps
If you have these signs, your body needs magnesium and potassium. To replenish these vital elements, add tomatoes, oranges, bananas, and spinach to your everyday diet.
. Dry skin
Dryness of the skin may signify a lack of vitamin E. Therefore, you should eat more vegetables, oil, nuts, and fish.
. Sweet tooth
If you suddenly feel a strong desire to have something sweet, then stress, depression, or exhaustion may be the cause. Your body is asking for glucose. Oblige it, and to avoid gaining weight, better have some dark chocolate or honey.
. Desire to eat ice
If you find yourself wanting to eat some ice, then you may have anemia — iron deficiency. The best sources of iron are beef, eggs, and molluscs. However, it’s still better to consult a doctor if you want to eat ice and lack energy.
