Vitamin D Deficiency!

1) Muscle Pain

Vitamin D insufficiency can cause persistent and/or repeated muscle pain, particularly in the hamstrings and rotator cuff in the shoulders.

2) Hair Loss

Lower levels of vitamin D have been linked to alopecia areata, an autoimmune illness characterised by dramatic hair loss from the head and body.

3) Getting Sick Often

Vitamin D is also essential for maintaining a healthy immune system, so if you are constantly battling diseases such as the common cold, you may not be getting enough of it.

4) Continued Fatigue

Regardless of how much sleep you receive, are you exhausted and worn out? A vitamin D shortage may be to blame if this ailment is more frequent in the winter.
