Are you vitamin D deficient? It is estimated that one BILLION people worldwide don’t get enough of this vital nutrient. What makes this surprising is one of the easiest ways to get vitamin D is by simply going outside and getting some sun.
The following symptoms have been linked to vitamin D deficiency:
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Back pain
- Slow wound healing
- Hair loss
- Bone loss
- Frequent colds/weak immune system
- Muscle pain
Ask yourself: how many people are taking medicines for the above conditions that are actually the result of a vitamin D deficiency? Unfortunately, most people are focused on alleviating the symptoms, not getting to the actual cause of their health issue, which is a lack of vitamin D.
The majority of us spend more time indoors than outdoors, and as a result, we increase our risk of being deficient in this important nutrient. Please note: most windows provide UV protection, which means sitting by a window will not give your body the Vitamin D it desperately needs.
A lack of vitamin D can have a tremendous impact on a person’s overall health. Go outside and get some vitamin D today. Your body will thank you!
