The study showed, in some cases a pain in back and joints can occur due to deficiency of vitamin D.
Many people experience pain in the back and joints. Young often associate it with excessive physical loads or, on the contrary, a sedentary lifestyle. Older people – blamed on old age. Although in reality the causes of such pain, some of which are not directly related to the musculoskeletal system, can be many.
One of them, as shown by a recent study lies in the lack of vitamin D. As you know, this vitamin in particular is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from food. And this is the key to the health of bones and joints. If the problem is not solved, can start arthritis or other diseases, and will also be a high risk of fractures.
Experts believe that vitamin D deficiency is very common. However, drinking supplements without the advice of a doctor is not necessary – it is best to take the tests and know what you are missing and in what amounts. In other case, use natural sources of vitamin D that should be present in a healthy diet. You can use products such as egg yolk, tuna, mushrooms, salmon, mackerel, fish ROE, beans, dairy products.
Also signs of vitamin D deficiency may be sleep disturbance, lack of energy, hormonal balance, frequent colds. Women in their menopause, it is necessary to monitor the levels of vitamin D and calcium, because calcium begins to leach out, posing a threat to bones and joints.
