Although Vitamin D is critical for the health and maintenance of the human body, about 41.6% of the Unites States population is considered deficient. This becomes even more surprising because Vitamin D is created when our skin is exposed to sun.
A lack of Vitamin D can contribute to pain and aching in the bones, muscle weakness, an increase in depression-like symptoms, and the development of chronic fatigue symptoms. A Vitamin D deficiency over time can lead to the development of chronic health conditions such as osteoporosis, heart disease, and – potentially – autoimmune disorders.
The video posted below quickly breaks down the five most powerful benefits of Vitamin D. This detailed list should convince everyone to go out and start researching ways to meet our daily recommended intake of Vitamin D.
