Micronutrient Malnutrition: Not Limited to Developing Nations

Authors: (The Institute for Functional Medicine, 2023)


Abstract:

The human body may only require micronutrients in small doses, but these vitamins and minerals are crucial for basic physiological functions such as metabolism, growth, and development. Deficiencies in one or more of these micronutrients may lead to detrimental health impacts, including chronic diseases. For decades, health organizations have been reporting on micronutrient malnutrition, including deficiencies in iodine, iron, folate, vitamin A, and zinc, among others, that continue to have devastating consequences for billions of people worldwide. And micronutrient deficiencies are not limited to developing nations.
