People over the age of 50 may be deficient in the vitamin because their natural ability to produce vitamin D from the sunshine’s rays diminishes.
Those considered overweight or obese also need more vitamin D than those who are at a healthy weight.
This is because vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, any gut issues – such as irritable bowel disease, Crohn’s, celiac, or gluten sensitivity – which affects your ability to absorb fat could hinder your vitamin D intake.
It may be worthwhile investing in vitamin D supplements if you’re presenting symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency.
