Are You Vitamin D Deficient?
Gradually dropping temperature has been sweeping Britain recently and it’s turning everyone, including myself, cold and grumpy.
It really goes to show that human beings truly are solar powered. While we think that it’s mere warmth that is turning our moods around, studies have shown that it can actually be a Vitamin D deficiency that leaves us tired and depressed. According to a survey by Pharma Nord, developers of Bio-Vitamin D3:
- Two thirds of those surveyed suffer with low mood or depression, which becomes worse during the winter months.
- More than half of UK adults admit that they often feel tired and regularly catch colds and flu during the winter months.
- One in ten catch three-to-five common viruses such as colds, flu and stomach bugs per year.
- And only 13 per cent are not affected by seasonal illnesses.
We think that awareness of vitamin D deficiency needs to be highlighted here at Ms. Career Girl – that’s why we’re delighted to highlight the infographic by Pharma Nord below. Help spread the word … and get out of the house!
