WHY VITAMIN D?
Vitamin D plays a significant role in the regulation of calcium and phosphorus levels in the bloodstream. These factors are vital for maintaining healthy bones. In addition, Vitamin D helps manage blood sugar levels, helps with concentration, learning and memory, facilitates hormone regulation, enhances the immune system, improves heart health and can help protect against cancer.
Despite the body being able to manufacture Vitamin D, a large percentage of the population, both children and adults are Vitamin D deficient.
Signs include: fatigue, weaker bones, back pain, muscle soreness, hair loss, frequent sickness and depression.
