Most people get Vitamin D from sunlight but in modern society the number of hours spent outside in the sun has decreased significantly as more and more jobs require us to be indoors for the majority of the day. If you are not getting enough sunlight, suffer from milk allergies or adhere to a strict vegan diet, you may likely be at risk for Vitamin D deficiency. Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency can include bone pain and muscle weakness. Even without these symptoms you may have a Vitamin D deficiency which can leave you at risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, asthma, and cancer(3).

Vitamin D has been used for conditions of the heart, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol(1).

Anyone considering a vegan diet or following a vegan diet should consider supplementing with Vitamin D. What you may not know about a vegan diet is that most sources of Vitamin D other than sunlight are animal-based. Without foods such as fish, egg yolks, cheese, and beef, in your regular diet, supplementing with Vitamin D may be your best source.
