Do Americans have a Vitamin D problem: Study

Vitamin D supplements are a common staple on drugstore shelves for years and its popularity is only growing.

The US market value for the supplement is projected to hit $1.3 billion by 2025.

Studies show a large jump in vitamin D deficiency diagnoses over the last two decades.

Mild deficiencies are quite common because most people don’t get nearly enough sunlight in their daily lives.

These mild deficiencies go largely undetected and most people live their lives and never know it.

The supplement supposedly bolsters bone health, muscle function and immune system.

Some say that when the supplement is taken in moderation, it’s a harmless daily pill that can only help most Americans.

Others argue that it’s a largely pointless expenditure.
