When we talk about Deficient People, we are primarily referring to people whose bodies lack good nutrition required for a healthy body. 

Nutritional deficiency occurs when the body is not getting enough nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. There are a number of conditions that are caused by nutritional deficiency such as anemia. The body requires vitamins to stay healthy and function properly.

While vitamins can be found in the foods we eat, sometimes that is not enough. Some people may have a greater need for certain vitamins. Increasing the intake of nutrients can alleviate symptoms and conditions. Multivitamin and mineral supplements are commonly taken.

Nutrient deficiencies can also lead to diseases. “For example, calcium and vitamin D deficiencies can cause  osteopenia.

Nutrient deficiency is the most common cause of a depressed immune system. Although some people have found out that relating nutritional status to immune function has historically concerned itself with severe malnutrition states (for instance kwashiorkor and marasmus), attention is shifting toward big deficiencies of single or multiple nutrients and the effects of overnutrition. The research of scientists has concluded that a single nutrient deficiency can profoundly impair the immune system.

Taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement enhances immune function in elderly people.

In summary, certain diet deficiencies or imbalances of essential amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, or minerals can lead to muscle wasting, decreased stature, increased susceptibility to infection, metabolic disturbances, and a host of other diseases, depending on which elements are missing from or disproportionate in the diet. And so, making our health important by eating food containing good nutrients is very important.
