Vitamin D Deficiency and the Benefits of Supplementation

Here Comes The Sun

Spring is finally here and, as the Beatles tell us, “Here Comes The Sun.” Sunny days impact our mood and our outlook, and they offer up what most of us desperately need: vitamin D.

For those who focus on health and wellness, few nutrients are as important as vitamin D. Vitamin D is sometimes only thought of in the context of getting enough sun, but it’s essential to many aspects of our health, from bone health to immune system function. However, despite its significance, many individuals worldwide suffer from vitamin D deficiency, a condition that can have profound implications for your overall health.

Vitamin D exists in two forms: D2 and D3, each sourced differently. D2 originates from plants, while D3 is derived from marine sources like fatty fish. D3 is naturally present in our bodies, but it has to be activated by the sun for our bodies to use it. D3 fortifies the body, enhancing strength, health, and happiness.


Vitamin D plays pivotal roles in:

  • Maintaining bone strength
  • Creating healthy bones
  • Fostering muscle health
  • Skin health

Both D2 and D3 are accessible as supplements, but D3 is absorbed more easily, making it more effective more quickly.

Symptoms Of Vitamin D Deficiency

Some people don’t know they have a vitamin D deficiency, but there are symptoms that may be related to it. If you have:

  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • Bone pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle cramps

It might be a good idea to have your vitamin D level checked with a simple blood test.

In children, vitamin D deficiency can cause deformities in the large bones like the legs. This kind of vitamin D deficiency is called rickets and is very serious.

Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to an array of other health problems, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Depression
  • Compromised immune function

Benefits Of Supplementation

Supplementation with vitamin D can play a crucial role in addressing deficiency and promoting overall wellness. By providing a convenient and reliable source of vitamin D, supplements help ensure that individuals meet their daily requirements, especially in cases where dietary intake and sun exposure are insufficient. Moreover, supplementation with vitamin D has been shown to offer a myriad of benefits, including:

  • Improving bone health and reducing the risk of severe fractures especially as you get older
  • Enhancing your immune system which can reduce the risk of upper respiratory infections, cold, and flu
  • Helping with depression and seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
  • Overall mood regulation
  • Reducing the risk of chronic diseases by regulating inflammation and cell growth
  • Supporting your overall health and vitality

By supporting these functions, vitamin D supplementation contributes to your overall wellness and quality of life.
