Vitamin D is mainly being produced in our body after exposure to the sun. Some of it comes from egg yolks, red meat, salmon, sardines, mackerel, herrings, liver.
Low Vitamin D or deficiency may lead to osteoporosis or brittle bones. Previously it was thought that osteoporosis is a disease of old age. That is not the case. Many young adults and children suffer from that as well.
Other, not fully understood effects of the lack of Vitamin D may be: a) getting frequent infections such as colds, flu or urinary tract infections; b) Feeling fatigued and tired; c) bone and back pain; d) depression; e) Wounds do not heal well; f) hair loss; g) muscle pain; h) inability to lose weight when overweight.
Vitamin D level above 50 nmol/L is considered adequate.
