Vitamin D is Crucial to Your Overall Health and Well-Being

Supplementing your diet with vitamin D can improve physical and mental health.

Recent studies show that bone and teeth health, as well as breast, colon and immune system health, can be improved simply by making sure you get enough vitamin D.

Senior citizens, especially, can be affected by low levels of vitamin D.  According to a study published in the Archives of International Medicine, an estimated 40-100 percent of older adults in the United States are deficient in vitamin D. As a result, they can experience declines in thinking, learning and memory, and may have an increased risk for Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, this deficiency has been linked to bone fractures and various chronic diseases.
