Vitamin D positively impacts the body in more ways than one. According to Healthline, it’s proven to boost your immune system and help with depression (which are especially vital right now, with the ongoing pandemic). Vitamin D can also fight off certain diseases, such as the flu, MS, and heart disease, promote weight loss, and — because it helps with calcium absorption — it’s thought to help promote bone, muscle, and oral health.
Unfortunately, since vitamin D largely comes from notable amounts of exposure to sunshine, many people — especially working adults in the Northern hemisphere — don’t receive enough vitamin D from the sun. Those who are vitamin D deficient are often tired, achey, and are more prone to getting sick. Vitamin D deficiencies are also associated with bone and muscle pains, and sometimes even stress fractures.
