Many health experts consider the benefits of vitamin D to be one of the most important health discoveries in the last century!!! How amazing is that?

The first thing that comes to mind when you think about Vitamin D is SUNSHINE.

The Basics:

Vitamin D is found in 2 forms. Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol) is made by plants. You can find it in foods that have been fortified, such as juices, milk, or cereals (not really the best source). However, Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol), the most complete form of Vitamin D, is made when the skin is exposed to sun. We’ve been somewhat “brain-washed” by the media to think that all sun exposure is bad. This is NOT TRUE! Getting 15 minutes of direct sunlight on unprotected skin is usually enough to get in your daily dose. Nature is your best bet for Vitamin D. Including foods in your diet that contain vitamin D, like fish (wild salmon is good), cod liver oil, milk, eggs, fresh fruits, and vegetables will also help. Unfortunately, most of us cannot get enough Vitamin D through food sources or sun exposure. :(:(

It is estimated that up to 2/3 of the population is Vitamin D deficient and needs to take a Vitamin D3 supplement. Keep in mind that it is a fat-soluble vitamin and should be taken with a meal for the best absorption possible.

So what are some of the benefits of Vitamin D?

  • Bone Health – Vitamin D aids in the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous

  • Increases bone density & helps decrease fractures

  • Helps to prevent osteoporosis

  • Enhances the immune system, lowering the incidence of colds or flu

  • Lowers incidence of cancer & rheumatoid arthritis

  • Controls hypertension (high blood pressure)

  • Aids in heart/cardiovascular health, preventing premature death

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Prevention against diabetes, autoimmune diseases, & multiple sclerosis

  • Eases muscle aches & fibromyalgia symptomsImproves serotonin levels, thus aiding the control of depression

  • Helps control appetite and even improves fat-loss efforts!!

As you can see, Vitamin D is absolutely necessary for good health & the list of benefits just keeps on GROWING.

How do I know if I am getting enough Vitamin D?

Have a blood test which can be requested at the doctor’s – this blood test will measure the amount of Vitamin D to determine if you are getting enough or not.
