If you are underexposed to vitamin D, you may notice joint pain, muscular weakness or muscle trembling. In some cases, if you are developing rickets, you will notice bowed legs, soft bones or continuous fractions.
The problem comes from the lack of vitamin D or the inability of the body to absorb it properly. To prevent these from occurring, get out in the sun or visit a tanning bed to get your recommended amount of vitamin D. Food and supplements only support you temporarily. Nothing can replace getting natural sunlight.
If you notice any problems with your body, including any joint paint or soft bones, don't wait. Talk to your doctor. If you know you have not been out in the sun or to a tanning bed in a while, start a regular regime.
