A Vitamin D deficiency can keep the body from retaining Calcium which can cause rickets, a disease where the body tissue doesn't properly mineralize, leading to softer bones and skeletal deformations. Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can be signs that you may be Vitamin D deficient. Studies show that low levels of Vitamin D can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, decrease cognitive ability in older adults, and increase risk of getting cancer.
  • Vitamin D is naturally produced by the body when exposed to sunlight. It is also found naturally in some fish, fish oils, egg yolks, fortified milk and grains.
