Adequate Vitamin D and calcium are crucial to maintain proper bone health. In the last decade, Vitamin D deficiency throughout the world has risen dramatically.
- 77% of the population in the United States lack adequate levels of Vitamin D.
- In 2010, a study of dancers from Israel found that 94% had low Vitamin D levels.
Vitamin D enables calcium to be absorbed in the gut, rather than the body taking the calcium from the bones, which in turn prevents osteopenia or osteoporosis.
