Do you have a Vitamin D Deficiency?
A deficiency of Vitamin D occurs when:
- There is an inadequate dietary intake of Vitamin D
- There is not enough exposure to sunlight
- The kidneys can't convert the Vitamin D to its active form
- The gastrointestinal tract doesn't adequately absorb Vitamin D.
Vitamin D Forte is an excellent supplement to help prevent vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency is the result of a lack of vitamin D in your diet because of limited exposure to the sun and a diet that is dangerously lacking in vitamin D.
Sometimes, there are organ problems that result in vitamin D deficiency such that your kidneys can no longer process Vitamin D so it can be used by your body or you cannot effectively absorb Vitamin D gastro intestinally. Vitamin D deficiency can be very serious as it leads to such diseases as rickets and osteomalacia.
Because of the potential restrictions on skeletal development in children suffering from rickets, the effects of Vitamin D deficiency can be long lasting resulting in weak bones and muscles throughout adulthood. Vitamin D Forte is an excellent supplement that helps to prevent the effects of Vitamin D deficiency.
