Here’s the reason behind the terrible back and joint pain!

Pain in the joints is most often caused by injury, aging, or simply bodily inactivity. Additionally, it can be caused by bad nutrition habits. Research has shown that a insufficient amount of vitamin D can often lead to back and joint pain.

This vitamin help regulate the amount of calcium in our body. A deficiency of vitamin D can cause bones to soften and make them weak. In addition, this vitamin can help manage autoimmune conditions such as MS and Type 1 diabetes as it affects the immune system.

Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency:

  • joint pain
  • muscle pain and weakness
  • fatigue
  • respiratory issues
  • bone pain
  • low mood
  • numbness

Because vitamin D is closely related to bone and muscle functions. Thus, a review of studies in 2016 showed that people without RA have notably more vitamin D in their blood than those who do. The studies also showed that those with RA are more likely to suffer from vitamin D deficiency.

A 2012 research paper suggests that a lack of this vitamin can be risk factor for onset of inflammatory diseases. It can also increase the severity of the condition.

To prevent osteoporosis it’s best to take vitamin D supplementation. Those who don’t and suffer from RA have a higher risk of osteoporosis fractures and feel greater joint pain.

It improves mood and helps with depression.
