Why is Vitamin D Important? 

Did you know Vitamin D is produced in your skin as a response to sunlight. It then helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, helping keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy! 

Unfortunately, we can not just depend on the sun for our Vitamin D needs. It is very important to to have appropriate amounts of Vitamin D in our system, and at times we may need to add in supplements or eat more Vitamin D rich foods, such as fatty fish. Vitamin D has benefits such as helping our moods, supporting our immune system, and helping fight disease. 

Vitamin D may play an important role in helping regulate your mood and may help with warding off depression. If you are commonly struggling with your mood in regards to anxiety and depression, it would be worth getting it checked and seeing if you have a Vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D helps enhance the function of your immune system. It is important to give your body an appropriate amount of Vitamin D to help support your immune system against common diseases. 

Lastly, Vitamin D may help your body fight off diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. If you have a Vitamin D deficiency beware you may be prone to aches and pains, muscle and bone weakness, or issues with stress fractures.
