8 Signs You Might Be Vitamin D Deficient

Did you know that more than 75% of Americans are now Vitamin D deficient? This is a huge increase from the 45% back in 1994 and is largely due to our more recent knowledge of the severe damage the sun can cause our skin. But since most of our Vitamin D comes from being outdoors without sunscreen blocking those rays, it’s important to be aware of any unexplained health issues that may arise from deficiency. Here are 8 signs you might be Vitamin D deficient.

  • Feelings of depression or feeling down
  • Aching bones
  • Allergies
  • Menstrual cycle changes
  • Muscle weakness
  • Becoming overweight
  • Getting sick often
  • Broken teeth

The good news is your doctor can do a simple blood test to see if you’re Vitamin D deficient and then you can work together to combat the issue. You can get outside 10-15 minutes per day to increase your levels or if you’re concerned about skin cancer, you can take a daily supplement and eat more foods that contain the vitamin.
