There’s a new disease in town…called Vitamin D deficiency! Almost 1 in 4 Australians already have it!

So what’s the deal with Vitamin D anyways?

What is Vitamin D and What does it do?

Vitamin D is a critical nutrient and hormone in our bodies, that is known to aid contribute to the absorption of calcium and phosphorous.

I’m sure we’ve all heard how vitamin D is critical to bone and teeth development, maintenance, and restoration.

But did you know, it also aids:

  • Immune function
  • Mood regulation
  • Energy regulation
  • Blood sugar regulation
  • Heart health regulation
  • Weight maintenance
  • Hormone regulation

Is there such thing as too much Vitamin D?

Like many things, too much of a good thing is also bad. It is possible to have too much vitamin D, if you are taking supplements. If you are relying on sun-exposure and diet, it is actually very difficult to accumulate too much!

In the rare case of excessive vitamin D, you may experience symptoms such as:

  • Nausea
  • Apathy
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Dehydration
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue

If you experience any of these, please seek medical attention.
