10 essential micronutrients every teenaged girl needs

Advaita was a happy and energetic 13 year old. Lately she seemed very lethargic and irritable. Her mum knew only too well that the lack of activity and the temper tantrums were part and parcel of teenage and along with it also came Peer pressure, performance pressure and teen hormones. Her doting father on the other hand was persistent to find a plausible explanation of his daughter’s new persona. Interestingly, this time mum’s diagnosis was not entirely accurate. Daddy’s perseverance did pay off and a conversation with the family physician revealed that our young lady might be anemic, later confirmed by a simple blood test.
