Vitamin D

Vitamin D is used by the body to help with the absorption of calcium, helping promote bone health. Without it, people of every age can face a variety of health challenges.

 

The Importance of Vitamin D

We know that a vitamin D deficiency can cause serious health issues such as soft bones (rickets) in children and skeletal deformities (osteomalacia) in adults.

Studies have potentially linked vitamin D deficiency with countless chronic diseases. Deficiency has been correlated with an increased risk of several types of cancer, heart disease, obesity, depression, and more. A lack of vitamin D can also impede calcium absorption, leading to an increased risk of osteoporosis.

The right type of vitamin D supplements can be helpful for supporting you in overcoming this nutritional deficiency.

 

Do I Need Vitamin D?

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has identified the reason that so many Americans experience vitamin D deficiencies. This includes spending less time outdoors (sun exposure helps the human body produce its own, natural vitamin D), increased use of sunscreen and dietary inadequacy.

Among the demographics who face the highest risk for this deficiency are older adults, individuals with dark skin, people with certain digestive diseases and anyone who does not experience sunlight exposure regularly.

As many as half of U.S. residents may suffer from Vitamin D deficiency. This means that there is a good chance you could need supplementation.
