About Vitamin D

Vitamin D has many important functions in the body, including supporting the immune system, muscles, and skeletal system. It also plays a role in mental health. Deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to serious conditions, especially if the deficiency persists for a prolonged period. The vitamin helps increase the absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc in the intestines. There are two main forms of Vitamin D, D3 and D2. Vitamin D3 is naturally produced in the skin when exposed to ultraviolet light, while Vitamin D2 primarily comes from the diet. Almost all cells in the body have receptors for Vitamin D and require sufficient levels to function properly. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to serious health risks such as osteoporosis, osteomalacia, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, pregnancy complications, diabetes, depression, stroke, autoimmune diseases, influenza, various forms of cancer, infectious diseases, Alzheimer's, obesity, and more.

During the winter months, especially at northern latitudes, our bodies may have difficulty producing enough Vitamin D due to a lack of sunlight. The risks of Vitamin D deficiency also increase if you have a disease that affects nutrient absorption in the intestines or if you have a limited diet. Vegans and individuals who do not eat fish or enriched foods are at greater risk of Vitamin D deficiency if they do not take supplements.

Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency

Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency can be vague and include general fatigue, low mood, weakness, muscle weakness/muscle cramps, digestive problems, and headaches. Prolonged Vitamin D deficiency can lead to serious conditions, particularly affecting the bone tissue of the skeleton, which can result in osteoporosis. Children are particularly sensitive to Vitamin D deficiency as they require adequate levels for proper skeletal development.
