6 health risks you can take down with vitamin D

Optimize your vitamin D levels

A recent doctor’s visit resulted in an unexpected diagnosis for me. I went in feeling rundown and generally fatigued and expected to find out that I had caught one of the bugs going around thanks to my kids starting school but instead, blood work revealed that I was dangerously deficient in a number of vitamins.

I was especially shocked because I work hard to stay healthy. I exercise regularly, eat right, always buy organic and take a daily multi-vitamin. But, none of it was enough.

In fact, I was so low in one vitamin in particular – vitamin D – that my doctor was concerned that it was not only behind my current problems but could be setting me up for long-term health risks.

And, I’m not alone in the problem. Vitamin D deficiency has become rampant thanks to our indoor lifestyle since your body needs sunlight in order to make the vitamin and more and more people are starting to experience symptoms.

So, if you haven’t had your own vitamin D levels checked, it’s time to make an appointment because there are six serious health dangers optimizing your vitamin D levels could save you from.
