Low levels of Vitamin D are very common, and Heavy D made it his life’s work to raise awareness of this issue.

Did you know that Vitamin D is actually a Prohormone?  Or that your body can make Vitamin D with sun exposure?  Heavy D did.  And he tried to share this knowledge as much as possible.

The single “We Got Our Own Thang” encourages the listener to get his or her Serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D level checked on a regular basis.

Heavy D was an actor as well.  He had recurring roles on the sitcoms “Roc” and “Living Single” where he would often praise the dairy industry for adding Vitamin D to milk.

Alas, this musician, actor and activist passed away earlier this week at the age of 44.  This was just days after the release of “Tower Heist” in which Heavy D had a role.  And we will know honor Heavy D with his biggest hit.

Jack FM’s Old Skool Joint of the Week is “Now That We’ve Found Love”
