Struggle with hair loss?  These are just some of the symptoms of a vitamin D3 deficiency. Vitamin D3, also known as the sunshine vitamin, supports healthy bones, muscles, the immune system and can also help to regulate insulin levels. Around 42% of Americans are vitamin D deficient.

Vitamin D3 Can Also Help Your Pelvic Muscles!

Vitamin D3 has been proven to help men and women with urinary incontinence. A 12-week study done in 2013-2017 (based in the USA with women 50 years and older) showed a 40% decrease in urinary incontinence episodes. Remember, vitamin D3 can help to strengthen our muscles & bones. This includes the pelvic floor muscles. To keep it short, our pelvic floor muscles support our bladder. If those muscles are weak, then the bladder muscle, specifically the urethra, has trouble staying close which results in bladder leakage. See the diagram below of a strong pelvic floor muscle versus a weakened pelvic floor muscle.
