WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE VITAMIN D FOR YOUR BONES…

I have written in the past how deficiency in Vitamin D can cause back pain in women and cause havoc on your immune system, well now they say we also need it for our bones.

It allows your body to absorb calcium, without it, your bones become brittle and weak. In adults loss of Vitamin D can lead to osteoporosis.

To check you have enough Vitamin D you need to be able to expose some portion of your skin to direct sunlight for 15 – 30 minutes a few days a week, however UV rays can also cause cancer so its getting the balance that is important.

Adults, infants, children and adolescents can all be affected by a deficiency in Vitamin D, so your diet is very important. If its low in milk or the foods that naturally contain Vitamin D like salmon and eggs then you need to try and increase these types of food into your every day diet.

Low Vitamin D may also worsen the prognosis for women with breast cancer. And it has also been shown to cause depression and weight gain.

Other food sauces of Vitamin D are egg yolks, cod liver oil, beef liver, margarine, yoghurt and some cheeses. You can of course, take some supplements if you feel you need more.
