Actress Penelope Cruz says her focus on keeping her body in optimum condition is probably excessive and it is a part of her “hypochondriac tendencies”.
Cruz, 41, said she visits a nutrition expert twice a year to check what vitamin and mineral deficiencies she has in her body so she can be in peak physical health, reported Female First.
“I really believe it’s true that your stomach is your second brain. I don’t take general multivitamins. I take specific, good quality ones, – that’s important.
“I go to see what I might be deficient in. It’s probably too often, but it’s all part of my hypochondriac tendencies,”she said.
