8 Signs You're Suffering from Depression Without Knowing It
8 Signs You Need To Be Getting More Vitamin D
Decreased muscular size can be the result of not enough vitamin D in muscle and nerve tissue, says Kimberly Mueller, R.D., owner of Fuel Factor Nutrition Coaching. So if you notice that you can't eek out the same number of reps you've always done, that may be a sign you need more vitamin D.
According to a study inThe Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, women with low levels of D are twice as likely to combat depression.
Vitamin D promotes bone growth—but when you're low in the nutrient, your bones become weakened, meaning your risk for stress fractures increases, says Mueller. In fact, some studies show as high as double the risk if vitamin D levels are exceptionally low.
Vitamin D plays a role in heart health, helping to regulate blood pressure. So when you don't get enough, your blood pressure can creep up.
Some studies have shown reduced aerobic capacity and overall endurance in athletes with low vitamin D levels, says Mueller.
