What a deficiency in the sun vitamin causes to the body
3:47:47 2023-09-26 155

Good absorption of the “sunshine vitamin” enables the body to absorb calcium, fight infections, and keep the nervous system and muscles working as they should.

Vitamin D is vital for bone health, so not getting enough of the vitamin can “weaken your joints and you may be more at risk of stress fractures.”

What are stress fractures?

The Mayo Clinic confirms that stress fractures are small cracks in the bone. It often spreads to the weight-bearing bones of the lower leg and foot.

Nutritionist Naomi Newman-Beinart said that vitamin D deficiency could play a role in serotonin levels in the brain. She explained: “Serotonin is known as the happiness hormone because it is important in maintaining your mood and feeling your best. Vitamin D is also important for a person’s immunity, so not getting enough vitamin D can weaken your immune defense.”

In this regard, Dr. Newman-Beinart indicated that low vitamin D may be one of the reasons for the weakness of the immune system in the face of the severity of “Covid-19” symptoms, saying that “a recent review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), which is the gold standard for research, found that supplements Vitamin D led to a lower risk of death and a reduced risk of admission to the intensive care unit for people with Covid-19.”

But the National Health Service confirmed that “there is currently insufficient evidence to support taking vitamin D alone to prevent or treat Covid-19.”

The human body can produce vitamin D after the skin is exposed to sunlight, but many people may not get enough daylight, especially during the winter, and this means that they may suffer from vitamin D deficiency.

How you absorb vitamin D depends on whether you get it from food or sunlight.

If you have problems absorbing the sunshine vitamin, you can try eating fatty and/or magnesium-rich foods.

Since vitamin D is fat-soluble, taking it with fatty foods can help the body absorb and store it for future use.

Food sources of vitamin D include:

- Oily fish (tuna, mackerel, salmon)

- eggs

- Dairy products (milk and cheese)

- Vitamin-fortified foods (cereals, bread, juices)

- Mushrooms

Dr. Newman-Beinart said: “For people who do not eat these foods and are not regularly exposed to sunlight, it may be helpful to consider taking vitamin D supplements.”
