Part of maintaining a healthy body and attractive appearance comes down to a proper balance of vitamins and minerals. These nutrients help boost your immune system, protect against infection and illnesses, and keep your body running properly. But with so many vitamins to keep in balance, it is common to be deficient in one or two areas. Frequently, a healthy intake of vitamin D is ignored. This can lead to a variety of medical complications and poor overall health. Because of this, it is important to know both the symptoms of and treatment options for vitamin D deficiency. Boosting Wellbeing with Vitamin D Vitamin D is absorbed into the body through both diet and exposure to the sun. Due to busy schedules and more time than ever spent indoors, however, many people are suffering from vitamin D deficiency. What makes this nutrient so important is the vital role it plays in helping the human body absorb essential nutrients from food such as calcium, iron, and zinc. People with a vitamin D deficiency are at risk for cardiovascular disease, weakened bones, skeletal deformities, cognitive impairments, asthma, and cancer. Whether you are currently dealing with these conditions or are at risk, proper amounts of vitamin D can help you get back to better health.

Vitamin D is a powerful vitamin that is actually a hormone
Most of us are very deficient in Vitamin D
Can help in many conditions – these are just a few:
