Vitamin D deficiency and Vitamin D benefits

Have you been extremely tired lately, so tired you feel it in your bones?
In the last few month I have been feeling very tired. I decided to have a blood test and found out that I am Vitamin D deficient.
  
The symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include: 
- Tiredness
- Pain in your bones
- Weakness
- Muscle twitching 
- Mood swings and depression
- You can also have frequent infections
- Some people may not have any symptoms at all. 

Vitamin D is important for good health, growth and strong bones. 
I got vitamin D supplements. I've been told to eat a lot of oily fish, eggs, fortified breakfast cereals and powdered milk. I have been also told that about 10 to 15 minutes a day in the sun without sunscreen is enough to top up vitamin D levels.

Well, last few days have been hot in Paris and since our body make vitamin D when the sun shines, now is the perfect weather to spend some time on the sun. I feel more energetic and happier when the sun shines. 
Sunshine boosts levels of serotonin, the body's natural happy hormone.  :-)






Vitamin D benefits:
1.) Vitamin D plays an important role in maintaining a healthy body weight.
2.) Helps prevent cavities.
3.) Vitamin D have been shown to help prevent falls and reduce fractures.
4.) Vitamin D and calcium are used to treat people with osteoporosis.
5.) Low levels of vitamin D may be linked to high blood pressure.
6.) Vitamin D is important for heart health. 
7.) Vitamin D prevent breast cancer.
8.) Vitamin D supplementation may improve symptoms of depression associated with SAD.

Remember:
Not getting enough sunlight is one reason some people suffer from vitamin D deficiency.
Look after yourself and spend some time in the sun.
