The human body can be likened to a perfect mechanism where millions of processes occur simultaneously. And whenever something’s wrong, our body starts sending us certain signals – that we often ignore or fail to notice. In order to prevent complications, it is important to learn to recognize these signs.
Here are some of the most important signs that you should not ignore.
#1. Poor sleep quality, irritability, leg cramps. These signs indicate a deficiency of magnesium and potassium. Start consuming more products rich in magnesium, such as nuts, flaxseed, sunflower and almonds. To increase potassium consumption, regularly eat green leafy vegetables, such as cabbage, spinach, and chard. In addition, you can also find these trace minerals in plums, red beets and apricots.
#2. You’re craving salty foods. This is a sign of inflammation or infection in the body, in particular, in the genitourinary system.
#3. Dry skin. This indicates that your body lacks vitamin E, so you should increase the consumption of vegetable oils, oily fish and nuts.#4. Craving for sweet-tasting foods. If you constantly crave something sweet, you may be suffering from nervous exhaustion, which is why the body needs glucose to get the missing energy from. Therefore, in order to prevent gastrointestinal problems, you should consume honey or dark chocolate.
