Vitamin D is essential for maintaining strong bones and supporting overall health, including heart health. While sunlight is a common source of vitamin D, many people may not get enough, especially during winter and spring. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include fatigue, increased hunger, and bone pain. People with darker skin or limited outdoor exposure are at a higher risk. In addition to sunlight, vitamin D can be obtained from foods like salmon, tuna, eggs, fortified milk, and orange juice. Supplements are often recommended when sunlight is insufficient. However, caution is needed due to the risk of skin cancer associated with prolonged sun exposure.
