Low mood: Vitamin D deficiency is holistic, putting the whole body at risk, including our mental wellbeing. Research has established a link between low mood and insufficient vitamin D intake, so if you have mood health concerns, vitamin D levels could be a good place to start.


Poor immune resilience: Vitamin D is essential to immune health, so if you find yourself regularly getting colds or feeling sick a lot, or you just want to boost your overall immune health, vitamin D is a critical factor.


Brain fog: Vitamin D supports daily brain function, so low levels of intake could result in brain fog or fatigue. For more, see Vitamin D: Also Good for Brain Health
