Orthopods (like yours truly) frequently advise vitamin D supplements with calcium for healthy bones. However I bet you didn’t know this is turning to be one useful vitamin!
- Vitamin D may help treat chronic pain in women (may not work on mothers-in-law..).
- Supplements of the vitamin given to kids up to 5 years may reduce the risk of diabetes in later life.
- Want to live longer? Get a load of this: Vitamin D may help slow aging.
- Low levels of the vitamin may actually increase the risk of heart disease!
But before you go rushing to buy the super economy size bottle; you can overdose on this vitamin with serious health effects. So talk to your friendly neighbourhood orthopod!
Who you gonna call..?
