Learn More About Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that we produce as a result of exposure to the sun. Living in a cold climate, and spending much of our time indoors, puts us at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Canadian research shows that up to 73.5% of men and 77.5% of women have inadequate levels of Vitamin D.

Vitamin D regulates both the immune system and neuromuscular system, and acts as an antioxidant throughout the body.
