Subject: Five Common Diseases Linked to Vitamin D Deficiency
By now, most people know that vitamin D is essential for good bone health. What many people don’t know, however, is that this nutrient plays a major role in preventing many more common illnesses. Influenza and asthma are more common during winter months because we get less vitamin D. Arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancer have also been linked to be more prevalent when there is a vitamin D deficiency.
- The risk of influenza is the highest during the winter season because the exposure to sun and ultraviolet B rays is low.
- For this reason, the amount of vitamin D in the body is reduced.
- The studies point out that vitamin D strengthens and boosts the immune system and prevents colds and flu.
"When there is a deficiency of vitamin D in your body, you are at risk of some bone abnormalities."
