Common Nutrient Deficiencies – Tackle Them With The Jar Healthy Vending Machines

Updated: Nov 18, 2020

Many nutrients are essential for good health.

While it’s possible to get most of them from a balanced diet, the typical diet, in Western culture at least, is low on several very important nutrients.

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world, affecting more than 25% of people worldwide.

Around 30% of menstruating women may be deficient as well due to monthly blood loss, and up to 42% of young, pregnant women may be deficient as well.

The most common consequence of iron deficiency is anemia, in which the number of your red blood cells and your blood’s ability to carry oxygen drops.

Symptoms usually include tiredness, weakness, a weakened immune system, and impaired brain function. Our Healthy Vending Machines in London can help with this!

Dark leafy greens, seeds, beans and red meat are great sources of iron – so in order to top up your Iron intake you could consider going for the Kale & Norwegian Kelp Soup by PRESS Soup or the Turmeric & Butternut Daal by Pollen & Grace, both available in The Jar Healthy Vending Machines across London.

Calcium is essential for every cell in your body, as it mineralizes bones and teeth, and is also very important for bone maintenance.

Additionally, calcium serves as a signalling molecule, and without it your heart, muscles, and nerves would not be able to function.

Dairy products are a great source of calcium and are most people’s go-to for a their calcium requirements, but again leafy greens can provide with your daily dose of calcium, and the apple, spinach and elderflower juice drink from Rejuce, could be an efficient way to help you boost your calcium intake.

Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble vitamin. It helps form and maintain healthy skin, teeth, bones, and cell membranes. Furthermore, it produces eye pigments, which are of course imperative for maintaining your quality of vision.

Vitamin A deficiency can also suppress immune function and leave you vulnerable to contracting diseases and illnesses.

In addition to your leafy greens, carrots and sweet potatoes are jam packed with Vitamin A, so picking up a pouch of Sweet Potato & Turmeric soup by PRESS Soup or a Carrot & Turmeric salad by Pollen & Grace would be great options for you to give your immune systems a helping hand.
