According to a survey, more than 1 Billion people across the globe have Vitamin D deficiency. Since Vitamin D is present only in a handful of foods and that too in very low quantities, low Vitamin D levels in blood is bound to happen. Hence, ‘early morning sunlight’ and other Vitamin D supplements are the only remedies for this ‘condition’.
Since the symptoms caused by Vitamin D deficiency are quite common, both laymen and doctors sometime fail to relate them together; the symptoms include- feeling fatigued, being bothered by infections all the time, back pain, weak bones, hair loss (Alopecia areata), impaired wound healing, etc.
If your blood reports suggest low Vitamin D, the best way to improve its level is by taking physician-prescribed supplements. Since there are many countries that don’t receive a single ray of sunlight for days or rather months, taking supplements is perhaps the only viable choice for everyone.
