Fructose intolerance and vitamin deficiency

Vitamins and minerals are life essential. They fulfil devise tasks in our body, we need them to stay healthy.
Different organs, our blood or our nerves depend on vitamins. So that we do not get any deficiency symptoms and through these symptoms, a weak immune system or a depressive mood, we have to make sure that we become enough vitamins.

Our body can also not produce minerals and we have to take them through our food. One of the most known minerals is for example magnesium, which is needed for the function of our muscles.

What is the connection between fructose intolerance and a vitamin deficiency?

Straight after the diagnose from fructose intolerance, most patients go without almost all food that contains fructose due to the grace phase. Through this, very often not enough fruit and vegetables products are consumed, which are important sources of vitamins and minerals.

After the grace phase, it is important to include enough low fructose fruit and vegetables in a daily diet. In our seasonal calendar we have several digestible fruit and vegetables listed. Also, in our recipes there are various low fructose dishes with vegetables rich in vitamins.

But is it enough just to integrate the personal tolerable fruit and vegetables in a daily diet?

By a fructose intolerance the intestinal flora is changed, it is often irritated and not so healthy and varied built, how it should be in the ideal case. Nutrients, including vitamins, are absorbed by the intestine.
If the intestines are unbalanced, the vitamins are very often not absorbed or only in small amounts. In particular is this by vitamin B. Because this water-soluble vitamin cannot be produced by the body in the needed amount or saved, a constant supply through food is necessary.

Folic acid (vitamin B9) belongs to the group of the water-soluble vitamins from the B-complex. People with fructose intolerance have often shown a deficiency of folic acid due to the damaged intestinal flora. Folic acid is essential for the renewal from cells and the cell division, also very important for iron and vitamin B12 metabolism. New studies show that folic acid achieves an important role for the protection of cardiovascular disease.

Studies also tell that there is a connection between a disturbed fructose intake and a zinc deficiency. The most known quality from zinc is that it protects us from infections. Zinc also helps our immune system that is in charge of blood cells and to fight viruses quickly and effectively. Especially in the season of colds, a good supply of zinc is recommended. It also ensures that we stay feeling fit and vital. It is also important for healthy skin, hair and nails.

A zinc deficiency can often cause a lack of appetite, hair loss, nail problems, flaky or inflamed skin, higher susceptibility to infectious illness or delayed wound healing. A zinc and folic acid deficiency can be found out with a blood test.
