Yet scarily, dietary deficiency of iron is the most prevalent mineral deficiency in the world today according to World Health Organisation sources. All ages and both sexes are at risk, but especially women of child-bearing age. In the UK official data shows that 89% of young women have a daily intake of iron which is less than the RNI of 14.8mg.

Thiamin is more commonly known as Vitamin B1 as it was the first vitamin to be discovered. The body cannot produce thiamin by itself so it must be obtained from the diet; from food sources such as whole grains, pulses, nuts and seeds. Because it is water soluble and not stored in the human body a deficiency can arise if a persons diet is poor, either due to low appetite or a diet reliant upon highly processed foods. Mild deficiencies may arise because of these reasons also. Thiamin levels may be depleted in the body by long term treatment with diuretics and it is often given to patients being treated for alcoholism.

- Drink or smoke heavily.
- Have a poor diet that is low in whole foods.
- Are on long-term diuretics, which are often prescribed for heart patients.
