Countering Vitamin D deficiency with little sunshine and right lifestyle
The human body naturally produces Vitamin D in the body when the skin gets exposed to sunlight. However, given our lifestyles, even countries like India that gets an abundance of sunlight has been observing cases of Vitamin D deficiency in both adults and children. Its deficiency can cause dementia, viral and tuberculosis infections, depression, breast and colon cancers, Alzheimer’s, PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease), and even infertility.
Apart from sunlight, cereals, dairy products, soy milk, fish like tuna, mackerel and salmon, etc. can help combat Vitamin D deficiency to a certain extent.
