The most common misunderstanding about vitamin D deficiency is that it is not a health issue. In fact in United States the CDC reported 32% of all children and adults are at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Studies in Australia reported that at least 40% of children and adults are at risk for vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D and Pregnancy

Sleep, sunshine and vitamin D play a vital role in our general health and may help to improve our menstrual health as well. 

Sun exposure is also an important source of vitamin D. Ninety per cent of the vitamin D we get comes from skin exposure to sun, and less than ten per cent from food sources such as fortified milk, eggs and some fish. Early research suggests that vitamin D may help normalise menstrual cycles (for example, with polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS) and may help relieve muscular pains and mood disorders such as depression.
