How To Identify And Correct Nutrient Deficiencies

Episode 671 1h 3m


A shocking 99 percent of Americans are nutrient deficient, including over 90 percent who are deficient in omega-3 fats and 50 percent who are deficient in magnesium. Add to that chronic stress and a heavily processed diet with foods lacking nutrition, and it’s a recipe for nutrient-deficiency disaster.

In today’s episode, I talk with Chris Kresser, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about why so many of us are nutrient deficient and what to do about it.
