These days, it can be challenging to keep up with all the nutrients your body needs. Even if you try to have a healthy diet and exercise, you can fall short. However, if you are low in Vitamin D like nearly one billion people worldwide, you could see the effects more obviously than with other vitamins through common signs of aging.

To learn more about Vitamin D and its impact on your health and appearance as well as your options for slowing symptoms of aging, keep reading!

What Is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is simultaneously a hormone and a vitamin that your body needs. It can be found both in and out of the body. In fact, your body produces it after you’ve been outside for a while. The UV light triggers Vitamin D production, which helps your cell DNA reproduce more efficiently, facilitating new, healthy cell production.

As a result, Vitamin D plays an important role not only in extending your lifespan and well-being, but also in avoiding signs of premature aging. In fact, studies show that chromosomes look much healthier in patients who had sufficient Vitamin D levels.

What Can Cause a Vitamin D Deficiency?

Many people simply do not spend enough time out in the sunlight, whether because of indoor school or work or because they wear sunscreen, as they should, which blocks the UV light. Although this prevents sunburn and skin cancer, it can interfere with your body’s Vitamin D production.

Also, if you are not getting enough Vitamin D from your own body, it can be absorbed through certain foods like eggs, milk, fatty fish, and more. If you do not eat these foods on a consistent basis, you could suffer a Vitamin D deficiency.

How Can You Get More Vitamin D?

As you might imagine, having more Vitamin-D-rich foods may help your body, but it also depends on how well it absorbs this vitamin from your foods. Also, you should continue to wear sunscreen to protect your skin, but being outdoors more often may increase your body’s natural production of Vitamin D.

However, even with more time outside or adjusting your diet, you may still fall below healthy levels of Vitamin D. In this case, it may be beneficial to receive external, concentrated treatments. Having your blood tested regularly and monitoring your health with a trusted team can help you achieve ideal levels and help you reap all the benefits that Vitamin D has to offer.

Although Vitamin D isn’t the only important nutrient to keep premature aging at bay, it is often neglected and should get more attention. When you work with a team you trust and check your blood routinely, you can make sure you’re getting enough and help you hold onto your youthful appearance as long as possible.
