The present study is aimed at critically analysing the past research work carried out in the field of micronutrients and their impact on mental and physical health of adolescent children. Factors responsible micronutrient deficiency have been analysed by reviewing past literature. Also, irreversible impact of micronutrient deficiency has been reviewed. Enhancement of micronutrient absorption is need of the hour. Therefore, importance and benefits of yoga practices, in improving micronutrient absorption, is being proposed.
