Why is Vitamin D Essential?

The Center for Disease Control reports 60% of Americans are Vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones and keeping healthy. Research suggests that Vitamin D3 deficiency has been linked to a host of other conditions such as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and an increased risk of pre-eclampsia and insulin resistance during pregnancy. Most recently, low Vitamin D3 levels have been linked to an increased prevalence of early age-related macular degeneration.

Symptoms and Health Risks of Vitamin D Deficiency
Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a Vitamin D deficiency. However, for many people, the symptoms are subtle. Even without symptoms, too little Vitamin D can pose health risks. Low blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with the following:

  • Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease 
  • Cognitive impairment in older adults
  • Psychiatric and neurologic disorder
  • Musculoskeletal disorders 
  • Cancer
