Description

Long known for its role in the prevention of childhood rickets and in the intestinal absorption of calcium, vitamin D has now been found to be important in protecting the body from an array of diseases. Disorders such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, several forms of cancer, some autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and depression have been linked to vitamin D deficiency. A major culprit of vitamin D deficiency is inadequate sun exposure. Vitamin D deficiency is a problem for people who spend much of their time indoors, or who live in colder climates.
