Recent studies have identified a potential connection between low Vitamin D levels and incidence of myocardial infraction, coronary insufficiency, angina, stroke, transient ischemic attack, peripheral claudication, and heart failure.
Vitamin D receptors appear in a wide variety of brain tissue, thus affecting optimal brain function. Vitamin D deficient individuals often fall pray to the neutral misfirings that can contribute to worsening clinical depression.
As Vitamin D aids the body in absorbing calcium and phosphate from food, a lack of it prevents bones from “banking” enough calcium to remain stable. This eventually leads to long-term bone deformity and a loss of bone density.
Medical experts have recently identified a strong potential link between Vitamin D deficiency and certain types of cancer, particularly at the Stage III level of severity.
