VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY
Because vitamin D is critical for the absorption of calcium and phosphate, inadequate levels of vitamin D can critically affect bone health. When the body has enough of both vitamin D and calcium, it can build up an abundance of calcium in the bones, which strengthens them. When vitamin D levels are low and the body isn’t able to utilize incoming calcium, it produces hormones that release these minerals from stores in bones. This depletion can cause a weakness in bones that can lead to, among other things, an increased prospect of injury. Bone health disorders such as rickets and osteoporosis have also been connected to vitamin D deficiency.
