1. vitamin D deficiency due to incorrect nutrition

A vitamin D deficiency is not only caused by a lack of sunlight, but in many cases is also triggered by an incorrect diet. Vitamin D can be found mainly in animal foods, especially fatty fish contain large amounts of vitamin D. Vegetable products such as mushrooms also contain vitamin D, but so little that the daily requirement of vitamin D cannot be covered.

    2 What is vitamin D?

    Vitamin D3 is an essential fat-soluble vitamin. In general, vitamins are defined as organic compounds that are best absorbed on a daily basis. However, vitamin D3 is an exception. In contrast to other organic compounds, the human organism can produce vitamin D3 itself. The vitamin is produced when the skin is exposed to sunlight, which is where sunlight is needed. When exposed to a high level of sunlight, about 80% of vitamin D3 can be produced by the body itself.

    3. symptoms of vitamin D deficiency

    • Mood swings
    • Hair Loss
    • Muscle aches
    • Disorders in calcium metabolism
    • Bone Pain
    • increased susceptibility to infections

    4. how can a vitamin D deficiency be remedied?

    A severe vitamin D3 deficiency can have various consequences. For example, a vitamin D3 deficiency can cause osteomalacia (softening of the bones). A vitamin D3 deficiency can also cause rickets. Rickets refers to the insufficient mineralisation of the bones in children. In older people, a vitamin D3 deficiency can result in osteoporosis. This changes the bone structure and can cause pain. A vitamin D deficiency can be quickly remedied by vitamin D-containing foods. Vitamin D is mainly found in animal foods such as fatty fish. Of course, you should make sure that you stay in the sunlight sufficiently so that the skin can produce vitamin D. In case of a vitamin D deficiency, dietary supplements can help. Vitamin D is available in the form of capsules and tablets.

    5th conclusion: Vitamin D deficiency due to poor diet

    Vitamin D deficiency is not only caused by a lack of sunlight, but can also be caused by an incorrect diet. Often vegans or vegetarians suffer from vitamin D deficiency because the vitamin is present in large quantities in animal foods such as fatty fish. The content of vitamin D in vegetable products is so low that the daily amount of vitamin D cannot be covered by it. In order to prevent vitamin D deficiency, one should stay in the sun sufficiently and eat foods containing vitamin D. In case of a deficiency, a change in diet and supplementation of vitamin D in the form of dietary supplements can help.
