Vitamin D deficiency in Men
Lately I have noticed with my own clients after they get a physical a deficiency in vitamin D, why, Im not sure, maybe it is staying out of the sun more. You can get your RDA's by just sitting in the sun for 1/2 hour a day, so that may be it.
Here is what happens to men: It is associated with reduced strength, muscle mass and performance in men!
Supplementation however, even in younger men restores all these attributes in men! I will not bore you with the details, but resistance training and supplementation corrects this problem and restores strength, muscle mass and performance in men!
So, get your physical and if you find that you are vitamin D deficient, get on the program, go to the gym and take extra vitamin D to restore your deficiency!
