5 Signs You Need More Vitamin D

(Ivanhoe Newswire) – The sun, salmon, tuna, milk, cereal, pork, eggs, and mushrooms are all great sources of vitamin-D, but most Americans are deficient in it. How do you know if you’re one of them?

Muscle weakness is a sign you may be lacking vitamin D. If you don’t have the same stamina you had a few years ago, check your “D” level.

Women lacking in vitamin D are twice as likely to suffer depression, according to the journal of clinical endocrinology,

Insufficient levels of Vitamin D have also been linked to chronic pain, especially in 

African-Americans. It also plays a role in heart health. When you don’t get enough, your blood pressure can creep up.

A study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine reported lower levels of vitamin D were also linked to higher levels of daytime sleepiness.

If you suffer from these signs, see a doctor because the solution may be in a simple supplement.
