Vitamin D’s importance has been understood since the 1930s since its association with a disease called Rickets was discovered. Rickets is something not seen much in this day and age but results in the softening of bones and teeth. “The symptoms of rickets include bowed legs, bone pain, dental problems, a widening of the wrists, frequent bone fractures and skull deformities” (www.naturalnews.com/045528).
Even with enough calcium intake, we may not be getting adequate D to provide the health benefits to not only our bones but to other aspects of our health. The following are some serious medical conditions associated with Vitamin D deficiency: asthma, heart disease, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes. Common symptoms to watch out for are depression, muscle pain or weakness, inability to concentrate, bladder problems, and constipation/diarrhea.
