Vitamin D Deficiency

It Is Critical to Avoid a Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D is a unique vitamin that actually functions as a hormone in the body.
The skin makes vitamin D when it is exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun. This is how people got most of their daily requirement throughout evolution.

However, a large part of the world is deficient in this critical nutrient today.
In many places, the sun simply isn't available throughout most of the year.

Even where there is the sun, many people tend to stay inside and use sunscreen when they go out. Sunscreen effectively blocks vitamin D generation in the skin.

If you're deficient in vitamin D, then you're actually lacking a major hormone in the body. Deficiency is associated with many serious diseases, including diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and others 

To find out if you are at risk, see a doctor and have your blood levels measured.

Unfortunately, it may be difficult to get enough vitamin D from the diet.

If getting more sun is not an option, taking a vitamin D supplement or a tablespoon of cod liver oil each day is the best way to prevent or reverse a deficiency.


SUMMARY
Vitamin D is a crucial hormone in the body and many people are deficient in it. Reversing a deficiency can have powerful health benefits. And I think it’s just easier to take a Supplement
