VITAMIN D

Vitamin D is very important for the upkeep of bone and overall health.

Lack of vitamin D in the body can make you a host for various chronic disease and infections.
Vitamin D deficiency can occur due to a number of reasons

1. If you do not consume the recommended allowance of vitamin D

This can happen if you follow a strict vegetarian diet as the sources of vitamin D are of animal-origin like fish, fish oils, beef liver, fortified milk, cheese and egg yolk.

2. If you do not get enough sun exposure

The skin generates vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. You may not receive enough exposure if you work indoors most of the time, wear long clothes that prevent sun contact or have a dark skin tone.

3. Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin D to its active form

As we age, our kidneys become less efficient at converting vitamin D to its active form and thus increasing the chances of a deficiency.

4. Low rate of absorption

Digestive disorders like celiac disease or chrons disease can reduce the rate of absorption of vitamin D in the stomach. more

If you do not want to take supplements and if you do have Vitamin D deficiency, then you will have to increase your consumption of the foods mentioned in the original post by Mr. Chandra. more
