Calcium is vital for strong bones and teeth, and low calcium over time may lead to Arthritis. Instead of wasting money on Calcium Sandoz, you should include milk or milk products like cheese, curd, etc along with peanut butter in your diet to fix it. To fulfill calcium deficiency, the best way is to have a pinch of Calcium carbonate in curd on an empty stomach, you can replace curd with water as well.

Do you have weak brittle nails or suffer from peeling cuticles or have very rough or dry hair or you facing premature hair fall? This indicates that your body is deficient in Biotin.
Biotin is made with the help of certain friendly bacteria in Gut and if there is any problem in our digestive system, our body is unable to make Biotin. A bacteria called Salmonella present in raw eggs creates an imbalance in the digestive system, if we consume raw eggs regularly, it may decrease biotin in our body. So, to increase biotin production in the body, there is a need to increase gut-friendly bacteria and this can be achieved by taking Probiotic food like curd. You can take curd on an empty stomach with 1 tsp of jaggery powder mixed in it to have better results. Other good sources include pickles and Apple cider vinegar.

Zinc is crucial for both men and women. In the male, zinc is required for the production of Testosterone.
