7 Signs and Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D, also known as the “Sunshine Vitamin”, is produced when your skin is exposed to the sunlight, and it triggers Vitamin D synthesis. It is essential for strong bones because it raises the efficacy of the absorption of Calcium in your body- they work hand in hand together. Imagine the downside of your bones molecular structure if there is a lack of Vitamin D – It becomes brittle and thinner over time. 

As much as we know on the importance of Vitamin D, you need to understand what goes on underneath the skin if you’re faced with a lack of Vitamin D. Today, Tropika Club will take you on this journey to understand more about the signs and symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency.
