Vitamin D is very beneficial to your body. It helps with maintaining the strength in your bones, mineral absorption , cellular processes and the immune system. During the months where it is nice to be outside, it is easy to get enough Vitamin D in your body; however, during the winter months your body may become deficient.

The symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency in adults in Woodbury MN

The symptoms include:

  • general tiredness, aches and pains, and a general sense of not feeling well
  • severe bone or muscle pain or weakness that may cause
  • difficulty climbing stairs or getting up from the floor or a low chair, or cause the person to walk with a waddling gait
  • stress fractures, especially in the legs, pelvis, and hips
  • anxiety and depression may get worse
  • possible weight gain

The most well-known consequences to not having enough vitamin D are rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. These are far from the only problems associated with a vitamin D deficiency. The consequences are numerous and include skeletal diseases, metabolic disorders, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, infections, cognitive disorders, and/or mortality.

In order to prevent vitamin D deficiency you can certainly eat foods that are rich in Vitamin D such as:

  • Egg Yolk
  • Orange Juice(Fortified)

If these foods cannot supply enough vitamin D, there are supplements you can also take on a daily basis. Anywhere between 2,000-10,000IU is a recommended dosage depending on your levels. Increasing the vitamin D along with a good quality pro-biotic can help with your GI tract which will then help your body absorb other things. Your immune system is dependant on a healthy gut, so the healthier your gut is, the better your immune system will be.

The term "seasonal depression" people up here in the northern states understand with the lack of sunshine. The general fatigue and lack of enthusiasm sets in. Sometimes people get into a "hibernation" mode which is not motivating to get to the gym and work out which that usually then leads to eventual weight gain then leading you into further depression. It is a vicious cycle if you do not take care of the problem.

Simply add a couple of drops of vitamin D or add in a supplement into your every day routine and you will feel the changes.
