My mom has been harassing me for years about my vitamin B intake because she read that vegetarians are notorious for being deficient. She always said it would negatively affect my hair and nails, but since I have big fat curly hair and always get complimented on my nail strength at the spa I figured I would continue ignoring her.
Ah, but you know another symptom of vitamin B deficiency? Chronic chapped lips. Oh the agony. For a week now I’ve suffered through it thinking I was allergic to my beloved cherry Chapstick or that I’d gotten sunburned at the beach. Both wrong. I am actually severely vitamin B deficient aaand dehydrated. Yes, I’ve been really bad about drinking water lately. Bad bad bad.
Anyway, I finally heeded my mom’s advice and picked up a bottle of Vitamin B Complex. I also snagged some iron since I am undoubtedly lacking in that arena as well and would rather not wait around see what kind of misery it causes later on down the road.
