Vitamin D (sunshine vitamin) is one of the most common deficiencies observed in people with today's sedentary lifestyle.
Vitamin D deficiency leads to fatigue, bone pain and fractures, muscle weakness, mood changes, and an increase risk of infections and illnesses.
If you aren’t exposed to sunlight in the early morning hours, one must assume you'll be low in vitamin D.
Oily fish, eggs, and fortified dairy products are the best sources of vitamin D.
Vegans and vegetarians, people over the age of 70, and people with dark skin
As vegans and vegetarians don't eat non-veg or dairy products, they can get vitamin D from supplements and exposure to sunlight.
Vitamin D deficiency is commonly known by "25-hydroxy vitamin D" test.
