So, here’s the tea. Those of us who are melanin-rich (here’s looking at you, brown skin queen) need to spend more time in the sun to gain the same amount of Vitamin D as those with paler skin.
Unfortunately, if you live in a place with minimal sunlight, you end up getting little to no vitamins. It also doesn't help if you are stuck at home or at your workplace all day and don’t get to soak up the sun.
Studies have shown that roughly 42% of people in the US have a vitamin D deficiency. This number rises to a staggering 82.1% of black people and 69.2% of Hispanic people.
For Black Women, This Lack Of Vitamin D Has Been Linked To
- Seasonal Depression
- Multiple sclerosis
- Increased Injuries
- Chronic Fatigue
Ok, now for ladies over the age of 50
Besides melanin-rich people needing more Vitamin D, elderly people also require more. This means being elderly and black puts one at a higher risk of deficiency.
