Vitamin D – More research links deficiency to MS, Cardiovascular and Brain function.

Those of you who regularly read my posts will know that although I believe in a varied and balanced diet, I am very vocal about one vitamin in particular.  Vitamin D is emerging as one of the most important nutrients for our health and research is beginning to link a deficiency of the nutrient to many diseases.

A deficiency is being linked to neurological conditions such as MS, cardiovascular disease and brain degeneration.

I subscribe to Dr. Mercola’s daily posts and this arrived this morning.  I think you will find interesting reading.

  1. Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency. However, for many people, the symptoms are subtle. Yet, even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks.

    • Absolutely Mihran – I get plenty of sunshine in summer but find I need to take in supplement form in winter along with more D rich foods. Has made a big difference to my health and those I work with as a therapist. There are so many health problems that it is associated with and as you say the symptoms can be subtle and also mask underlying problems associated with deficiency. Thanks for commenting. Have a wonderful week. Hugs..
