The Importance of Vitamin D Blood Test
According to the Harvard School of Public Health (2012), an estimated one billion people worldwide have inadequate levels of vitamin D in their blood. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones and muscles, mental fitness, and prevention of osteoporosis. In this article, we will discuss the importance of a vitamin D blood test and why it is necessary to supplement according to your individual needs.
Why Vitamin D is Important
Numerous scientific studies have linked healthy vitamin D levels to a variety of health benefits, including strong bones and muscles, mental fitness, and prevention of osteoporosis. Additionally, vitamin D has been shown to improve athletic performance, reduce the risk of certain cancers, and boost the immune system.
Who is at Risk of Vitamin D Deficiency?
Young adults, elderly people, and women are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency. However, deficiencies can be found in all ethnicities and age groups. Unfortunately, a vitamin D deficiency cannot be "tasted" or "felt," so it is essential to test for a vitamin D deficiency regularly.
