Vitamin D Deficiency - Symptoms and Cure
by John Davenport
countries tend to get a lot less sun than other areas of the world in which the
weather is more sunny. And to top it all off, we've been told repeatedly over the past
few years that sun exposure is bad for us as it can cause skin cancer. Can you blame
anyone for staying away from sunlight? I don't.

All these factors contribute to the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency and to the
spread of diseases and afflictions which are connected to it.

As one of the main functions of Vitamin D is to help in the absorption of calcium in
the bone, increasing their density and strength. This is why one of the main Vitamin D
deficiency symptoms is weaker bones. This may manifest itself in a variety of bone
related disease, first and foremost is Osteoporosis which is characterized by reduced
bone density and usually attacks people 50+ in age.

However, other conditions have been linked to a deficiency in Vitamin D, including
various strains of cancer, memory loss, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even
Parkinson's disease. Some of these conditions have not been conclusively found to
stem from too little Vitamin D but it seems that some connection does exist, even if
it's not a major factor.

What is the cure for this deficiency?

The answer is pretty simple: get more Vitamin D. First, go outdoors and let the sun
work its magic on you. You don't have to expose your face or arms if you want to
avoid wrinkles and blemishes. Expose your legs instead. Don't go overboard. Just get
a few minutes of direct sunlight on you and you should be fine.

If you can't seem to get enough sun you should eat foods that do contain Vitamin D.
These include various cereals, eggs, liver, and several fish such as tuna, salmon,
sardines, and more. You can also take Vitamin D supplements, but ask your doctor
before you do and try the more natural ways first.

It's important to your health to make sure you get enough of this vitamin. Be aware
of it and you should be fine.

Vitamin D deficiency is one of the
most common nutritional deficiencies
in the developed world. The reason is
simple: the best source of Vitamin D
is our own body. When our skin
comes into contact with rays of the
sun, our body generates Vitamin D. In
fact, you can get all the required
amount of this vitamin just by being
in the sun.

However, our way of life, in which we
are mostly indoors working, watching
TV, surfing the internet, and so on
limits the time which we spend in the
sun. In addition, colder, darker
