|It is interesting to know that even referring to such a kind of very minute effectors involved in the cellular processes, as the minerals and vitamins are, the mineral deficiencies can be still visibly expressed in the general state of health of an individual, as well as in the form of some specific external signs, particularly observed either by evaluating the skin (especially by performing a facial analysis for cell salts), or the fingernails. This study as a part of a more extended study which evaluated the level of stress and its interactions with the nutrition refers particularly to the context of observation of the aspect of the fingernails. The observations were made on 38 individuals (26 females and 12 males), residing in Thailand. The subjects were randomly chosen from different cultural and social backgrounds both Asian and Caucasian genders, age, blood type and type of diet. The results showed a clear prevalence of their deficiency which proves consistent with the previous statistics reported in the scientific literature for the Asian region. Among other kinds of mineral deficiencies, the zincone came to appear also with a certain frequency. Moreover, due to the lack of special preparation and laborious analytical procedure needed, this method shows to be very promising and extremely useful for mass screening, being easily applied as a method for the future prevention of mineral or vitamin deficiencies both in children and adults.|
