Vitmin Ddeficiency

Recommended Posts

Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in the developed world. The reason is simple: the best source of Vitamin D is our own body. When our skin comes into contact with rays of the sun, our body generates Vitamin D. In fact, you can get all the required amount of this vitamin just by being in the sun.

However, our way of life, in which we are mostly indoors working, watching TV, surfing the internet, and so on limits the time which we spend in the sun. In addition, colder, darker countries tend to get a lot less sun than other areas of the world in which the weather is more sunny. And to top it all off, we've been told repeatedly over the past few years that sun exposure is bad for us as it can cause skin cancer. Can you blame anyone for staying away from sunlight? I don't.

All these factors contribute to the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency and to the spread of diseases and afflictions which are connected to it.

As one of the main functions of Vitamin D is to help in the absorption of calcium in the bone, increasing their density and strength. This is why one of the main Vitamin D deficiency symptoms is weaker bones. This may manifest itself in a variety of bone related disease, first and foremost is Osteoporosis which is characterized by reduced bone density and usually attacks people 50+ in age.v
