There is growing evidence that low levels of circulating Vitamin D may contribute to the development of a wide range of chronic diseases and depression.
Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin being exposed to sunlight. It is also occurs naturally in a few foods including some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks and in fortified dairy and grain products.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Symptoms of joint pain and muscle weakness as well as low mood and depression can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency. Research suggests that vitamin D could play a role in the treatment of a number of different conditions, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and multiple sclerosis.
