VITAMIN D

90% of people are deficient in vitamin D in a huge way. I recommend getting a test done to see how deficient you are and if you don't want to get a test then assume that you are deficient in it. You want to make sure that you take a vitamin D supplement, it is hugely important to your health.

Vitamin D deficiency is, of course, found in people who do not take supplements, who receive little sun exposure, and who do not drink vitamin D fortified milk. Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent in the elderly, who all too commonly eat the worst diet, take the most medication, and get the least sunlight. Furthermore, the normal aging process itself decreases the body's ability to make vitamin D from what sunlight may be received. In any age group, even a relatively wholesome-appearing diet heavy in cereal grains reduces the availability of vitamin D in the body.

  • Anxiety
