Vitamin D deficiency has become a world wide problem! Vitamin D is responsible for many complicated functions in our bodies and a shortage of it can cause many problems. Vitamin D is a very important in keeping your Immune System healthy and working right.
A deficiency of Vitamin D can cause:
- Autoimmune disease
- High blood pressure
- Increased risk of a heart attack
- Joint pain
- Weight gain
- The list goes on and on…
You should ask your health care practitioner to check your Vitamin D level at your next office visit. If you don’t have a visit scheduled, you need one.
In my next post I will talk about how much Vitamin D you need to take and where to get it.
