Lets continue on with our series on Vitamins and talk about Vitamin B3. As picky eaters it's good to know the symptoms of vitamin deficiencies so we can supplement if we are not getting our daily requirements. Here are the symptoms of this deficiency along with other important details and always if you suspect you are deficient or having health issues please, speak with your doctor about them. Better safe than sorry.

Signs of Deficiency: Fatigue, depression, swollen mouth, rash on skin when exposed to sun Daily Requirement: The daily requirements do vary per gender. 16 mg for men, 14 mg for women Job: This vitamin helps to keep our metabolism functioning optimally. Common food sources: Beans, Broccoli, Brown rice, Fish, Green Beans, Green peas, Meat, Mushrooms, Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Potatoes, Sunflower seeds, Whole grains, Nice and simple, that's how I roll. Hope this helps understand the importance of Vitamin B3, again as picky eaters and even people in general, knowledge is power and if we know and understand our requirements we can make sure we are getting them. Until next time,
