7. Higher Levels Of Pain And Inflammation
Research published in the Journal of Arthritis Care & Research, found that lowered levels of vitamin D in the blood elicit an inflammatory response, wherein the immune system strikes painfully at the joints.
In particular, roughly 30-percent of patients who suffer from vitamin D deficiency are also prone to a condition known as psoriatic arthritis. Likewise, the same research found that 62-percent of psoriatic arthritis sufferers are vitamin D deficient, which explains the severity of inflammation due to raising the levels of white blood cells within the body.
