Do you seem to feel tired, moody, or always getting sick without a logical reason as to why? Perhaps you feel a little more down during the winter months, or have trouble healing minor scrapes or wounds. If you’ve never considered whether or not you could have a vitamin D deficiency, it may just be time. If you’re looking for insight, take our quiz.

Vitamin D Deficiency Explained

Vitamin D deficiency affects over one billion people worldwide. Those who suffer from inadequate levels of vitamin D may not be aware as the changes can appear to be subtle or of a different cause. However, it is imperative to know if it is affecting you as it can contribute to the worsening of both physical and mental health.

Symptoms and Risks

Low vitamin D can result in what is referred to as (SAD) or Seasonal Affective Disorder, which can arise as changes in appetite, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, difficulty focusing, and even thoughts of suicide.

Treatments for disorders onset by a lack of vitamin D include increased exposure to sunlight, light therapy, vitamin D supplements, changes in diet, and working with a mental healthcare professional.

If you are experiencing low levels of vitamin D, know that there are options, you’re not alone, and that your friends at GR8NESS have got your back. Seek advice from your healthcare provider to determine if you have a deficiency.
