Vitamin D: Do You Have Enough?

Benefits of Vitamin D - the sunshine vitamin:

  • Essential for bone health - reduces your risk of osteoporosis and fractures
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Reduces your risk of diabetes
  • Reduces your risk of high blood pressure and heart disease
  • Boosts weight loss
  • May reduce cancer risk

Vitamin D deficiency can therefore affect your health on multiple fronts.

To understand the Vitamin D status of the general population, we conducted a study of all those who did a Vitamin D test as part of a health check-up at Suburban Diagnostics over the past 5 years. 

From almost 1.35 lakh samples, we found that a majority were deficient in Vitamin D.
